This past year was my wife and my 50th Wedding Anniversary on Thanksgiving ! We have known the owners of the Oaks ,Candy & Paul for over 30years so picking The Oaks was our first choice. The St. Michaels area is either number two or three for "destination weddings", in the United States so we got our reservation in very... More

My wife and I went on a 2 day get away, to St Michaels, MD. We began looking for a place to stay in the heart of St Michaels, when my wife came upon : The Oaks Waterfront Inn website. We immediately knew this is where had to stay. It's approximately 3 mins from the center of St Michaels. When... More

The venue for a wedding is great. Nice looking grounds. Clearly they do this a lot and are good at it. The food was good, service at the wedding was good. We stayed overnight in a standard room with a king. The building is older and we had just moved from a newer hotel. I would say it was just... More

Very nice property. Attended wedding over a weekend and the venue was spectacular. The food was good. The rooms were ok. Nothing too special, but the location was great. If you attending a wedding at the venue and can get a room, do so. It is so nice to stay in the same place as the ceremony. However, the rooms... More

My husband and I spent a weekend at the Oaks as part of a larger wedding party. The entire inn was rented out for the wedding weekend. From check in to check out and everything in between, we had a fabulous weekend. The staff was attentive when needed but virtually invisible when friends and family were just trying to relax...

I was recently both a guest and part of a wedding party at The Oaks. While I don't think it is necessary to speak to the wedding party like they are children, I can at least understand the need to be stern with a large group of people when trying to orchestrate an event. It did seem special attention was... More

I'm a little puzzled by the negative reviews. We flew in from England on June 25th for a family wedding on June 27th. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. Our room whilst compact was immaculate and the bed comfortable. The rehearsal dinner of a crab feast on the covered dock on the 26th was... More

I have stayed In hundreds of hotels and I have been to my count of weddings. I have never experienced a staff so incredibly rude. For you to comment and say that that customer that experienced a negative service was an "isolated incident" is absurd. I don't care if you have 70 reviews.You impacted about 100 people who will never... More

It has been two months since my daughter's marriage at the Oaks and we are still basking in the afterglow of the perfect wedding. It is hard to describe all the ways that make the Oaks the ideal setting. Less than an hour and a half from Baltimore and DC, the Inn and grounds are breathtakingly beautiful, just the right...

The Oaks is an exceptionally special and wonderful place. I was recently married there, and would recommend it as a wedding location or just a weekend getaway! First, the location is gorgeous - a beautiful, charming inn right on the water with several great options for ceremony sites. I actually started crying the first time we visited because I was...
