Let Great Oak Manor serve as your home away from home as you enjoy luxurious service and this beautiful property.
A Rich History
Great Oak Manor’s rich history dates back to the first recorded land grant by Lord Baltimore in the 1600’s.
The story of the property began in 1659 when Josiah Fendall, fourth Colonial governor, received the land as a gift from Cecil Calvert, Second Lord Baltimore.
The name Great Oak Manor is believed to refer to a large oak tree that marked one of the corners of the property.
Now offering exceptional accommodations and hospitality on the Chesapeake Bay, the 12,000-square-foot manor originally was built in 1938 as a private residence. Born out of the bricks from the ballast of W.R. Grace sailing ships, Great Oak Manor was styled after an 18th century English country retreat.
The Georgian-style house has 12 uniquely decorated rooms and an expansive Carriage House suite. All rooms have king-sized beds and private bathrooms. In addition, several of our accommodations have fireplaces.
