Great Oak Manor is a dream wedding venue. The manor is timeless and beautiful (carriage house is awesome!), views and sunsets incredible, and staff especially Lynne was amazing. There are more picture spots here than you could possibly do. It was great to have the manor for the whole weekend which allowed us to set up everything before hand and made it a whole wedding weekend event. We had some bumps in the road communicating at first, but everything was sorted out. The new innkeepers seem to really know what they're doing. You have to see this place to believe it!

This is the perfect venue for your dream wedding, whatever that may look like. We held an elegant ceremony on the bluff over looking the Chesapeake Bay followed by dinner and dancing under an expansive tent on the lawn. The following day was a celebration with additional family and friends with something for everyone. Lawn games, swimming, kayaking, paddleboard, hammocks, etc. A perfect location for a beautiful experience

Great Oak Manor is an absolutely amazing, gorgeous getaway! I recently had my wedding there in May 2016 and I couldn't be happier with EVERYTHING!! The manor is absolutely beautiful and the surrounding grounds are breathtaking! The manor house is situated right on the water, and the views are incredible! The innkeepers, Kaylin and Scott, are absolutely amazing people as well! They were attentive, helpful, thoughtful, hardworking, and helped with so many details of the wedding and made everything run so smoothly! Anything we needed, they were there to happily help! They are such gems! Great Oak is such a great place for all occasions...from a private relaxing getaway (which my husband and I have also done!), family reunion, vacation with friends, or a wedding...this place is the most beautiful setting for all of the above!! I can't wait to go back! :)

We are so pleased that we chose to celebrate our wedding at Great Oak Manor! Scott and Kaylin were very patient and open to all of our ideas for the big day throughout the whole planning process. We had a full house since all of the wedding party and family members were staying at Great Oak during the weekend, but Scott and Kaylin kept everything going smoothly. Since it was a winter wedding, there were always warm beverages, homemade pastries (Kaylin's chocolate chip banana bread is amazing!), and fires in the fireplaces. The house looked beautiful and was full of Christmas cheer. On the day of the wedding, Scott and Kaylin were very helpful and even checked on me a few times to make sure that I was staying hydrated and fed! They stayed up until all of the guests had gone home and everyone was ready for bed in case we needed anything. The brunch they made on Sunday morning was absolutely delicious, and everyone kept on going back to the table for more! Having our wedding weekend at Great Oak Manor was a dream come true for us. We highly recommend booking this venue for your wedding and/or reception. We can't wait to go back for a long weekend getaway!

Amazing place and people to work with. The place was beautiful, the view incredible. My day was perfect for me. The manor had a warm and elegant feel and very comfortable. Our guests enjoyed their time there too. The InnKeeper can guide you on all the resources you need to create your perfect day!

We had the most unforgettable wedding weekend at Great Oak Manor. We rented the manor for the weekend so our guests could stay onsite with us. The manor and grounds are a stunning wedding venue. Our ceremony was held outdoors overlooking the water and our reception under a tent next to the manor house. Friday night, we had our rehearsal dinner on the lawn and a bonfire/welcome party afterwards. Unfortunately, the electricity in the backyard was not working so there was no lighting for our guests and it was incredibly dark and hard to see where guests were going. I spent 30 minutes lighting candles, meant for the next day, to illuminate the backyard. On Saturday, we utilized the conservatory for the ladies to get their hair and makeup done. Perfect lighting! The ceremony and tented reception went well until a huge storm came through...we moved the party into the manor and kept the party going in the conservatory. Sunday morning, we had our farewell brunch in the conservatory. My husband and I really LOVED the venue and our guests were blown away by it too. The only thing I wish could be improved upon was knowing that the electricity would be out in the backyard or at least having the venue help me figure out how to illuminate the area for my guests since they knew I wanted to use the backyard on Friday night.

When I went to review this venue I was shocked when I saw 5 star reviews- but then I noticed a lot of the reviews mention "Scott & Kaylin" as the inn keepers- they were fired. I too met them when I first toured Great Oak and fell in love with the manor but months before my wedding I was called by the new management and was informed Scott and Kaylin were let go. This is where the mess began. I met with the new manager Mike who told me right off the bat that he "hates" weddings- what a thing to say to a bride & paying customer. He dissed Scott and Kaylin and basically acted like the contract they had given me was complete crap. He was very hard to establish a rapport with. Would take forever to answer emails and questions and really just put off the vibe that he could pretty much care less about our wedding. I was so stressed out leading up to our wedding and was getting zero help from Great Oak. As our wedding approached I would email to ask small questions about this and that and for what I was paying I expected more of "yes mam of course whatever you need" but instead got push back on every detail. I will say that on the weekend of the wedding I was happy with how the staff treated us and they did step up when it came to the event but I am rating them so low as the manager made the wedding planning experience so awful for me. It is a beautiful venue and B&B but if you're planning to get married here, better spend the extra money (if you have any after paying their ridiculous prices) on a really good wedding planner because you will get no help from the people at Great Oak.
