We enjoyed the spacious room, very clean bathroom, and huge manor, and the large grounds to explore. Walking the grounds and sitting in the many well-placed chairs was very relaxing. The view was wonderful. Breakfast was delicious and enjoyable. Our favorite part was the quiet rural location right on the Chesapeake

This is one of the most peaceful places I have been in a while. The backyard is incredible--great views, hammocks, perfectly manicured grass, Adirondack chairs and lounges. The beach is tiny but fits some chairs and is suitable for swimming. There are lovely little touches: a 2PM snack (we had cheese, crackers and grapes one day; home-made banana bread another... More

We are delighted to hear that your stay was enjoyable! We will be working this winter to do some updates to the house.

From the moment we talked to the Innkeeper until we left, we would highly recommend spending a night or more in this lovely Bed & Breakfast. The manor, guest rooms and amenities were above the usual standards. You will not be disappointed with a stay here.

Very nice bed and breakfast. I would recommend it highly. Scott and Kaylin are very nice people, new to this particular B&B, but have been in the business for awhile. Scott was very helpful when my truck broke down he offered to give us a ride to a restaurant in town, and pick us up. That is really going out... More

We highly recommend The Great Oak Manor! The Manor itself is a stately and impressive brick, colonial-styled mansion constructed in the late 1930s. The mansion has a large brick addition, utilized as a conservatory and event situs, that was constructed a few years ago and is fully consistent with the architecture of the mansion. The grounds are rather extensive and... More

It was beautiful! Clean, beatific views, comfortable. The innkeepers couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. We brought our bass boat and had the most relaxing time we've had in a long time. We will definitely go back!

With 12 guestrooms and various common rooms, Great Oak Manor offers the finest in a romantic luxury bed and breakfast inn, where all of your whims are cared for, day and night. Whether you're adventurous, need to get away, or just want to be taken care of, there's something here for everyone. Spend an afternoon perusing the quaint streets of historic Chestertown, exploring the Eastern Neck Refuge, sampling the fresh catch in Rock Hall, or just curl up in the arms of a weathered Adirondack chair to soak up the view.
