Where pure luxury and warm hospitality meet on the Chesapeake Bay!
My new husband and I first fell in love with this picturesque, hidden gem when we toured as a potential wedding venue in Oct. 2019. We were not only memorized by the beauty of the property and the sense of calmness and serenity we felt while visiting, but we were so at ease and impressed with the hospitality when speaking with the main Inn Keeper, Holly about the possibility of hosting our 2020 nuptials there. We had been to several nice waterfront properties up and down the Eastern Shore before we went to Great Oak, but none held a candle to GOM and all it had to offer. Driving into the gates and up the gravel drive, we knew we'd eventually marry at the the Manor, and so we signed a contract that day and never looked back. Fast forward 1 year and few wedding bands later, we know without a shadow of a doubt that Great Oak was the perfect home away from home to host our closest friends and family for what has now become the best day of our lives to date. Every time we have stayed at the Manor, both before and after the wedding, the staff has rolled out the red carpet and made us feel so special. And I personally have no words for how enchanting our actual wedding day was from start to finish, how exceptional the whole wedding weekend was - from welcome bonfires to waterfront yoga to relax - words alone are not adequate. We've been told by guests that our event felt like "a summertime lawn party you only see in the movies." But more importantly, Holly, Joe, Lizzie and the rest of the GOM bunch now feel like family to us. Its only been a week since our wedding and I am sad its over/ready to get married there all over again! The good news is we know that Great Oak Manor will hold a special place in our hearts and for our new family for years to come. We can hardly wait to go back for anniversaries and special events, and maybe one day bring our own little ones to visit the Manor and meet the very special people there. We're so glad we discovered this special place- its only an hour away from our home, but feels like worlds away in the very best sense of the meaning. Many thanks to everyone at Great Oak Manor and until next time!Sent on 10/09/2020

Amazing- Holly is incredible!
Holly and Joe are incredible. Planned for the better part of a year, through COVID and was given so much support and treated like family when the time came. Holly is awesome.Sent on 09/23/2020

Great Oak Manor is the most picturesque wedding venue there is. A beautiful manor house with an incredible view of the Chesapeake Bay, what more can you ask for?! Their team is also extremely accommodating and one of my favorite venues to work with! Definitely, a place to consider (and book!) for your wedding!
Such a wonderful wedding venue to work at! Everyone was professional and everything ran so smoothly. The view and grounds are top notch and I would recommend this to any bride!
There is nothing better than partnering with Great Oak Manor for a dreamy wedding weekend. As an event florist, I've had the pleasure of flowering for a few magical weddings at this idyllic setting overlooking the Chesapeake Bay. The staff are lovely, helpful people and they really know how to get things done efficiently and elegantly. My experience as a wedding vendor there was enhanced by the stellar level of communication, availability, and attention to detail provided by the Innkeepers. I highly recommend this venue for the perfect, picturesque Eastern Shore wedding.
