The Story of The Oaks

The Oaks was named to represent the arched canopy of century-old oak trees that have been the hallmark of Jamestown's West Third Street NY Corridor for many generations.  There is a rich history of the property upon which the hotel now sits which was part of the original acreage purchased by the Jamestown City Founder James Prendergast in 1809.  This created a settlement dedicated to timber milling. 

The Oaks which a 10, 000 sq ft mini Tudor castle was built by the regionally well-known architect Raymond Freeburg in 1930, the hotel preserves many of the original home's features such as the inlaid artwork on the exposed ceiling beams, pictorial ceramic tiles, and slate room.

The Oaks features ten refurbished guestrooms with either in-room ensuites or private bathrooms,, all rooms uniquely decorated for comfort, and well spaced for privacy.  

We have a main common lounge area and a formal dining hall.   There are two outdoor patios and a large private courtyard.  The courtyard during the summer season has a firepit for our guests to enjoy as long as the seasons allow.  There is a large screen t.v. in the academy where we have weekend movie and game nights.  We offer in-house certified Reiki treatments, Spiritual healing which take place in our silence policy meditation room called The Oak Tree.

On location, we have The Oaks Spiritual Academy (T.O.S.A.) which is a popular location for very high calibre well-known teachers to to present and teach.

All rooms have free WiFi, hair dryers, towels, complimentary continental breakfast daily, and permitted on-street parking.
