My husband and I wanted to do a mini-getaway in Chautauqua County. We didn't want to stay in a hotel - this was confirmed by the unappealing options of hotels to us in our opinion - but a b&b. We found The Oaks through Trip Advisor and the reviewers did not leave us astray. The towns around Chautauqua County are... More

We've stayed at the Oaks B&B three times now visiting family in the area and with each visit, we have been very pleased with the rooms, staff, food, and location. We've stayed in the Brandywine (very cozy and spacious), Freeburg (great for an overnight, quick visit), and Renwick (perfect set-up for a longer stay or if you're toting around a... More

We highly recommend you stay at the Oaks. Room was tasteful, impeccably clean, and comfortable. Host Richard is gracious and kind. Breakfast was outstanding. The home is full of charm and warmth. For a complete vacation, go to Forte downtown for dinner.

I grew up in Jamestown, but my immediate family moved away. When we needed to attend a family funeral, we needed a place to stay. My only recollection of Jamestown hotels was the solitary Holiday Inn downtown (now closed). I searched trip advisor and found a listing for The Oaks. Wow! A gorgeous old home lovingly converted to a cozy... More

We were the winning bidders on a gift certificate for an overnight stay at The Oaks and we decided to use it for a holiday overnight. This is a unique and lovely building--it's exquisitely appointed with tasteful and elegant furnishings. We enjoyed relaxing in the living room by the Christmas tree and we even played a game of pool in... More

I stayed on a Friday evening after a business meeting. Cannot say enough about the perfect accomodations and wonderful host. I was met at the door upon arrival, made to feel very comfortable, introduced to the facilities, shown my room and personal bath, and provided special breakfast accomodations due to a very early departure. Beautiful B&B. Highly recommend!

We stopped at Jamestown, NY en route from Niagara to Gettysburg. The choice to stop at The Oaks proved to be an inspired one. The large, almost cathedral-like building is a local historic landmark, having been a home for gentlewomen previously. It has been lovingly repaired, maintaining much of what must have been the original charm. It has good evening... More

My husband and I stayed here this weekend and were so happy we did. I was dealing with a stressful family situation and The Oaks was an incredibly restful place to come back to. The room was spacious and quiet, the bed was huge and comfortable and the breakfasts were bountiful, with plenty of fresh fruit. I'll be staying here... More

On an overnight trip to Jamestown to visit the I Love Lucy museum we chose The Oaks on a recommendation of a friend. What a great decision.......... The home is beautiful, beyond compare and the Brandywine room we chose was cozy and comfortable. The breakfast Richard prepared for us was just incredible!! I would and will recommend the Oaks to...
