The Oaks B&B is a small luxury lodging establishment and exclusive space with six guest rooms, instead of the 50 or more found at most inns or hotels, and unique spaces for private events. As the proprietors, we live on-site and treat travelers as our invited guests rather than anonymous room numbers. You will be greeted upon arrival where we will provide you with a tour and usher you to your room where you can relax. Our guests are treated to lots of little deluxe touches like chocolates on their pillows, baskets of bath and beauty products, luxurious fluffy bath towels, a mini-fridge, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, and flat screen tv’s in each room. Our rooms aptly named, Rosé Respite, Champagne Lounge, Chardonnay Executive Suite, Zinfandel Zen (with or without the Zen Family Suite), the Riesling Room, and the Cabernet Red are en-suites and perfect for vacations, golf trips, romantic get-a-ways and bridal showers as well as business travelers and families wanting a home environment.
And, of course, there's the "breakfast" in bed and breakfast, prepared daily that comes with the price of the room and is served each morning in a communal dining room or a private table for two, by reservation, in our well-appointed living room. The Oaks B&B features frosty glasses of iced tea or lemonade on the patio on hot summer afternoons and cups of cocoa or hot cider in front of a cozy fire after neighborhood walks on wintry afternoons. You can come home to plates of fresh-baked cookies in the foyer or enjoy movie nights with popcorn in the comfortable family room. You may choose to chill out and listen to music in the living room, participate in weekly yoga sessions, and enjoy wine and cheese evenings--all as part of the room rate.
We can even arrange the courtyard, terrace and other outdoor spaces for private, exclusive guests, dinners and lawn parties. Please contact us so we can meet your needs!
Conveniently located 5 miles outside of Washington, DC, our guests can easily access the city with its many national parks and museums, shows at the Kennedy Center, The Anthem, Howard Theater and Blues Alley; and the famous Wolf Trap outdoor concert venue in Tyson’s Corner, Virginia is just 15 minutes across the Potomac River. There are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy - all within a few minutes - including biking on the C&O canal; walking through the Cabin John trail; hiking on the famous Billy Goat trail; kayaking, canoeing and sailing on the Potomac River; dining at world-renowned restaurants and barhopping in Georgetown, sightseeing and, of course, shopping at the famous “City Center”. Westfield Mall is located 5 minutes away. We are a short drive to Glenstone Art Museum in Potomac, MD, and all the Virginia Wineries! Montgomery County is home to Strathmore Hall, Bethesda Blues & Jazz Club, the luxe Pike and Rose, and a local farmers market in downtown Bethesda.
The Oaks is also a short walk or drive to several major golf courses including TPC Avenel, Congressional Country Club, Columbia Country Club, Bethesda Country Club and Kenwood Country Club.

Thank you, Quinton and Sharon Wilder, Esq., for an unforgettable birthday weekend. We were greeted at the Oaks Bed & Breakfast by Sharon Wilder, Esq., with a nice tour and escorted to our cozy bedroom "The Champagne Lounge" which had an assortment of chocolates and bottled water. We were deeply touched with the champagne served in the living room with a charcuterie board and a personal birthday card from the owners before heading to dinner. The evening ended with a nice fireside chat in the serenity garden. We thoroughly enjoyed the proximity to Georgetown and DC. The breakfast was simply delicious! This is truly a hidden gem in Montgomery County, MD. We are very proud of the owners establishing the only Black owned B&B in Montgomery County, MD. Fraternities and Sororities please support!

The Oaks Bed & Breakfast is a beautiful, clean, and comfortable establishment! I loved my experience there and the owners are professional and extremely accommodating. The house is beautifully decorated, and the grounds are well maintained and welcoming. I can't wait to go back and stay longer!

The Oaks is amazing!! I am so glad I chose it for my solo, birthday getaway. My friends stopped by for Wine Hour and didn't want to leave! Sharon and Quinton are very hospitable and gracious with their space. There are several spaces to be alone or gather with others. The rooms are impeccably decorated with so many subtle touches to match the themes. The morning of my birthday, I had breakfast waiting for me. They also gave me a birthday card...HOW THOUGHTFUL! They enforce COVID precautions which is comforting. The Oaks is definitely a home away from home. My friends are already planning their stays there. It was perfect for celebrating my National Holiday! I look forward to going back. Thanks Sharon and Quinton!!
This place is exquisite. I did a four day marathon dissertation writing retreat here. It was a huge success. I left having finished chapters 1-3. The room I stayed in was perfect (The Rose room). So many little, but beautiful, touches- from the art work to the candles and chocolate. I did my research and wrote daily in one of the cozy and elegant sitting rooms. My backdrop was a warm fireplace and a beautifully lit Christmas tree. I was able to take a walk and enjoy nature in the wooded neighborhood. The hosts, Sharon and Quinton were beyond accommodating and professional. Each morning I was served a five star breakfast and in the early evenings I enjoyed the wine hours. The wine selection is vast. Leaving was difficult. The hosts truly enjoy having and serving their guests and it resonates in all they do. I highly recommend this lovely upscale bed and breakfast. I will be back, for sure. Next time for a romantic getaway. This was my first bed and breakfast experience but not at all my first travel, lodging, or restaurant experience; and I can say without a doubt that I will be back and that others now have a standard that may be hard to beat! I felt so at home in this space and pampered by the proprietors and housekeeper alike! The food was delicious, the ambience was perfect, the neighborhood was refreshing, and the conversations with strangers were priceless!

I enjoyed both my solitude and the engagement with others that the space afforded me! There was a lovely fire pit out back where I enjoyed a nice whisky and the moon one night. During the day, I was able to enjoy a nice guided run through the neighborhood (with my Peloton app and Airpods). And one evening I even enjoyed some socially distant camaraderie and a television program with the proprietors and another guest in the beautiful family room. I got some great sleep and just the refreshment I needed heading into my law school finals. And truly, the backyard is one of the nicest spaces I've seen, particularly for the amount of space there; they really did so much with the yard and the seating. I especially liked that the fire pit was level with my bedroom. I stayed in the lovely blue room, which I believe is the Zinfandel. The touches were also amazing - from the candles to the lighting options back to the many sweet and salty treats!
There were also a slew of COVID-19-related health protocols and a form I had to complete about my prior health and whereabouts, plus a temperature check upon arrival for all guests. That made me feel safe for my first lodging experience in the company of others outside of friends or family. I highly recommend!

My recent stay at The Oaks in Bethesda, MD was like no other. Upon my arrival, I was greeted by Sharon, the fabulous host, and escorted into main entrance foyer of this unique bed and breakfast. I was immediately offered a refreshing beverage and checked-in. After check-in, Sharon led me on an informative tour of the property and subsequently to my room. As a wine enthusiast, I was ecstatic and excited to stay in the Rose Respite. The room perfectly fit my needs and was so comfortable that I did not miss my own bed during my stay at The Oaks.

I enjoyed a fantastic and relaxing time away from home. My room was really nice with a private bath with jetted tub and really comfortable bed! The breakfast was delicious, fulfilling and is different every day. It was really great to take my coffee on the front patio and watch the wildlife and birds. It took me exactly 7 minutes to get to DC, which was a great plus. I was even able to print a document that I needed for work! I will be back with friends! Michelle T.

We met when I was 16. I was an incoming freshman, he was a senior. He became the first love of my life and we dated my whole college career. When he graduated, and moved back to Boston, we spent practically every weekend in either Boston, or on campus in Amherst.
Then I graduated and moved to Boston, to be closer to him and to work while waiting to start law school.
I asked him to come to Washington, DC with me but the timing was not right for him to move. Next thing you know, we broke up, met and married others. Life happened and four kids and good careers but we both knew something was missing....
Fast forward to 2019, we both found ourselves single and our mutual friend reconnected us. We had not spoken in 27 years! BAM! The something missing was found .....the love of my life and the love of his life! We (re-)discovered together our mutual love for spending quality time with family, preparing good food, enjoying good wine, entertaining, peace, harmony, beauty, fitness and creating a wonderful, love-filled home environment!
With our kids all grown up, we decided to realize a long-standing dream and begin to build "The Oaks Bed and Breakfast" which we envisioned as a special place where our guests feel welcomed, pampered, and find home away from home. And finally, in midst of the pandemic, we opened our doors and after 30+ years, married on May 31, 2021!
Come join us in celebrating love and life and plan your own get-away at The Oaks!
