On fine summer weekends, evening concerts are often held around the antique fountain in the town square. The secret splendors of Chestertown, however, are the beautiful walled gardens tucked behind the alongside historic homes.

Escape to Great Oak Manor, a quaint Maryland bed and breakfast, where the Chesapeake Bay is aglow in warm sunsets; where towering Oaks gently kiss the skyline and where you can let your body rest and your mind wander.

With 11 guestrooms, Great Oak offers the finest in a luxury bed and breakfast inn, where all of your whims are cared for, day and night. Spend an afternoon perusing the quaint streets of historic Chestertown, exploring the Eastern Neck refuge, sampling the fresh catch in Rock Hall, or just curl up in the arms of a weathered Adirondack chair to soak up the view.
