    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!

    I would highly recommend Great Oak to any couple as the site for their wedding. We chose Great Oak Manor because it was the most unique venue we visited. The grounds are beautiful and the architecture is exquisite, which is great for guests and also for photos. We were married here in mid September 2017, and it was picture perfect. We had a very positive experience working with Holly, Jenn and their staff leading up to our wedding day and they helped to make the entire weekend easy. On our walkthrough we scoped out both the outdoor ceremony, reception areas and a back up indoor plan for inclement weather. I was impressed at how many people the venue could hold and loved that the grounds were sprawled out so guest have plenty of space. There’s a small beach, gazebo, bayside overlook, a wooded area, and separate private area with flat ground where we could have an outdoor reception and set up a massive sail cloth tent that we rented from Eastern Shore Tents and Events. What’s nice is the grounds are a blank canvas so you can customize it to your vision. I was also impressed by how well prepared the staff was when it came to advice. For example, one of our vendors had added a generator to our contract but the staff at Great Oak reviewed the contract and let us know they had enough power supply so we would only need the generator if we wanted to have it on hand as a backup... great tip for saving money during the planning process. Since we rented the entire venue for the weekend Fri-Sun, the staff worked ahead of time to plan out breakfast options for our guests who were staying at the manor and helped planned a Sunday brunch open to our out of town guests. My husband and I didn’t have to lift a finger! Our actual wedding day was absolutely beautiful weather so we had the ceremony & reception outdoors. Our guests were blown away with how beautiful the manor was and keep saying they cant wait to come back as guests which makes me very happy! I highly recommend it!

    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!

    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.
