  • There are no words that can adequately capture just how incredible our wedding weekend at the Oaks was. We emphasize weekend because that was one of our favorite features of the Oaks – your wedding party gets the entire property to yourselves for the weekend, which allows your wedding to be so much more than the ceremony and the reception, it makes for a truly relaxing and warm getaway. Everything about the Oaks itself is top notch. The facilities are breathtaking, clean, and accommodating; the food is incredible; and the bar selection plentiful. But above all else, what sets the Oaks apart is the staff. Everyone goes out of their way to make sure that you and your guests feel at home and have an incredible time. We cannot tell you how many of our attendees remarked that what struck them most was the friendly demeanor of the entire staff. Tracey, the on-site wedding coordinator, stands out among this phenomenal group. She made every minute of our experience seamless and easy – all ... Read more

    Dear Collin and Kelly ~ You fit so perfectly together! You respect each other, you cheer for each other, you always consider each other and you truly just love each other. All this because you have been surrounded by such an amazing support system of family and friends! They will always have your best interests at heart just like the two of you do for each other! I am so honored and so blessed to have been a part of your special weekend! Many thanks from me and the entire team at The Oaks and we wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness! Cheers ~ Tracey

  • Our families had an amazing experience at The Oaks. Start to finish, all aspects of the wedding weekend were excellent. We could not have asked for anything different. The staff was amazing and Tracey made sure every detail was perfection. The Oaks staff allowed us to have the wedding our kids had dreamed of. Can't thank The Oaks enough! Susan Wojciechowski

  • What an amazing experience it was having The Oaks host our wedding. The Oaks was the first wedding venue we toured and what an impression it left. At each venue we toured after that, we would ask each other which place do you see us getting married at when you close your eyes – every time the answer was The Oaks. We went back for a second visit and immediately knew it was for us. From the first tour, everyone there made us feeling like family. We knew we wanted a ceremony by the water, but it was also very important for my husband to have a venue that had a backup in case of rain as well as a place for an indoor reception. We hoped we wouldn’t need the backup but unfortunately, a remnant of a tropical storm moved through on our wedding day! We ended up having the ceremony on the large covered dock and it was still perfect. The lights under the dock along with the rain actually made for a very romantic setting. If only the wind had been a little less! Our guests were kept inside u... Read more

  • My husband and I wanted a "house" to rent out for our wedding; one where our bridal party and immediate family could all stay together and party the whole weekend. After MUCH research, we realized bringing in all vendors, equipment, tents, etc. would be a big headache and much more expensive than a traditional "venue". We still didn't want a cookie cutter wedding though - we wanted a weekend affair that still didn't blow our entire budget. Then we found The Oaks! The Oaks is run by a lovely husband (Chef) and wife (Inn Keeper) between Easton and St. Michael's, two adorable charming towns. It's nestled in a quiet area on the water, with a gorgeous bridal cottage, an amazing reception venue for dinner and dancing, amazing rooms (balconies, jacuzzis) and a living room. It has canoes, shuffleboard, a pool - tons of room for hanging out during / after the wedding. Tracey, our coordinator, was just fantastic. She helped us SO much with the planning - no need for a wedding planner. She... Read more

    Cheers to Erin & Jeremy! Helping the two of you have your dream wedding was so easy for us because the two of you are absolutely amazing! You both know that what is most important in a day such as this is each other! Your love and respect for each other transcends to every one around you. There is no doubt that together you will have a lifetime of happiness, love and joy! Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day! Cheers ~ The entire team at The Oaks

  • It is honestly hard to think of words that will adequately describe how perfect our wedding weekend was at The Oaks. Tracey and the whole team there were an absolute joy to work with over our year and a half of planning. She was so incredibly accommodating to all of our ideas and wedding day wishes, she very kindly dealt with my many emails of random questions and ideas, and we really enjoyed each meeting we had with her. She is so incredibly helpful and organized, and when it came time for our wedding weekend we didn’t have to lift a finger- she and the Oaks staff made the whole weekend go off without a hitch. Our guests raved about the food and beauty of the venue. The bridal cottage was the perfect and cutest place to get ready and stay in, and having our families right there at the venue with us was so convenient. We were so so sad when the weekend was over, but we can’t wait to go back and stay there again. We LOVE the Oaks and really can’t thank them enough for giving us ou... Read more

  • We just celebrated our daughter’s wedding at The Oaks and there aren’t enough words to describe how absolutely perfect the entire weekend was for all of us. If we could give it a 10, we would! A big plus is that you rent the entire inn so the whole wedding party and both sets of parents stayed together. We had so much fun ALL weekend. The rooms are beautiful and the bridal cottage is extra special. Some of us even had enough time to take walks, ride the bikes and take the canoes out on the creek. Tracey and Candi worked hard with us to determine the best location and set up for the ceremony as it had rained 5” two days before the wedding and then again the morning of the ceremony so the ground was a bit soggy. We were fortunate and the sun came out and we were able to have the wedding at the point with a beautiful view of the boats across the shore. While a bit nippy, cocktails were outside too. It was absolutely beautiful! The reception room with all the windows lo... Read more

  • We can't begin to thank The Oaks enough for all the amazing work they did to help make our day beyond perfect. We truly appreciate all the work Tracey and her team did for us in making our wedding weekend exceed all our expectations. From the planning leading up to the wedding to the breakdown afterwards, The Oaks made sure our weekend went flawlessly. The Oaks was the perfect venue for us, Tracey is the perfect wedding coordinator, and we had the best day ever!

    What an amazing wedding! Emily and Rob are such an amazing couple and we had so much fun planning this wedding with and for them! Everyone had one goal in mind that day and that was to ensure that Emily and Rob had the wedding they were dreaming of and it definitely happened! Seeing the joy and excitement on their faces that day, I just know they are in store for a lifetime of love, laughter and happiness and we were honored to be a part of their celebration!

  • We were recently married here this August and it was the wedding of our dreams. The entire Oaks staff makes the whole weekend so relaxing, enjoyable, and fun! Food, service, rooms, and wedding coordinator (Tracey) were phenomenal. We can’t wait to come back for anniversaries.

  • My fiancé and The Oaks canceled our contract without informing me. I was on that contract and the deposit check came from my bank account. Not only have I been robbed of that money, I’ve been robbed of basic decency and professionalism from the Oaks. Whatever the intent, canceling a wedding behind one party’s back is completely unacceptable. Further, not admitting the obvious contractual mistake made and, instead, lawyering up and cutting off communication with me, is cowardly and shows the true greediness and lack of character of the owners and employees of The Oaks. The Oaks made a major contractual mistake-they should have owned up to it with a simple apology and refund of the check. The date we had is a highly desirable date and I am sure they can, if not already, fill that date. I am beyond disappointed. 

    responded with the following comments.

    Again, we wish to express our sympathy to you regarding the cancelation of your marriage and the related ceremony at the Oaks. We will remind you that we addressed your contractual obligations with you at the time the contract was signed and the consequences in the event of a cancelation. After your wedding was canceled and you contacted us, we again discussed those contractual obligations with you. You confirmed your wedding had been canceled. Your message seems to indicate that you didn’t know that your wedding had been canceled, which seems incredulous. How The Oaks could cancel your wedding “behind your back” is not possible nor accurate? We appreciate the disappointment you have experience as a result of your engagement ending, however, at The Oaks we go to great lengths to ensure every event we hold exceeds the expectations of our customers. The other reviews on this site seem to confirm that we successfully reach our goal. We hope you find happiness in the future.

  • We were married at the Oaks this past September! We looked at a few venues on the Eastern Shore, but nothing else came close to what the Oaks offers. We wanted the venue to be by the water with the ceremony site outside and the reception inside, be able to have a whole weekend there to celebrate (and the Oaks offers the entire Inn to you the entire weekend), lodging onsite for our families and bridal party, and a fun area for our guests to explore since most everyone was travelling from out of town. Many of our guests made it a whole weekend getaway which was amazing! We had our rehearsal dinner under the covered dock - an Eastern Shore style BBQ which was so amazing being able to host it there! It made the planning & coordination process so much easier. Afterwards the bridal party went into downtown St Michaels to enjoy some fun local bars which was a blast. Then Saturday was an absolute dream! The bridal cottage offers everything you and your bridesmaids need to get ready and the gu... Read more

  • Getting married at The Oaks Waterfront Inn was a dream! This past June 2019, we had our dream wedding at this unforgettable location. From the moment we toured The Oaks with Candi a year earlier, we knew it was special. When you get married here, you get an entire team devoted to making your dream wedding come to life – way beyond the actual wedding weekend. Tracey, The Oaks’ weekend coordinator, walks you through wedding planning and checks in throughout the year. She also did an excellent job fielding questions coming from many different family members as I was too caught up in finishing graduate school to be as on top of planning as I had hoped. She was a huge help. You also receive a free night at The Oaks when you do your tasting! That is helpful to become comfortable with the venue for continued planning purposes. Tracey and the team will transform The Oaks into a retreat for your family and friends for the entire weekend. The best part is having your guests experience the ma... Read more

  • We found The Oaks early on in our wedding venue search and are so happy we did! The natural scenery by the water is one of our favorite things about The Oaks, and we loved the small bed and breakfast for some of our family and friends to stay at during the wedding weekend. The morning of the wedding, everyone took the canoes out on the water and visited others' nearby rental homes just a short paddle away! Paul, Tracey, and the other members of The Oaks team run a tight ship and it was wonderful to get to know them. They have seen every wedding concept, theme, and curve ball before, so they are experienced in dealing with any potential challenges that come up. They also have great vendor recommendations, and we loved the florist they put us in touch with. As a small but busy inn with in-house catering, The Oaks has specific ways of approaching many elements of the wedding weekend, but for the most part these worked perfectly for us. The food was wonderful and the event went off flawles... Read more

  • Our wedding at the Oaks was truly magical, and I think that was due in large part to our choosing the Oaks as our venue. The ceremony location simply can't be beat if you're fortunate enough to have good weather like we did. As for the logistics, Tracey and the rest of the staff are very helpful and professional, and everything went unbelievably smoothly thanks to them. All of our guests raved about the food, and we were especially impressed that the steaks were all cooked medium rare for such a large event, as that is often difficult to manage. Indeed, my only real complaint from the entire process is that the rooms in the inn are a bit dated, particularly given their relatively steep price. One other thing I feel like I need to share (although not a complaint) is that the reception space, especially the dance floor, is on the small side given that they have a minimum of 150 guests. If you have a group that likes dancing like we did, I'd say 150 guests should be more like a maxi... Read more
