I have to admit, I did not set out to vacation in St. Michaels, Maryland, but gosh I’m thrilled I did! I was recently looking for a “special location” to celebrate a milestone birthday with my husband. I was specifically looking for a location near the Baltimore/Washington, D.C. area. I also had another criteria, I was looking for a unique luxury hotel in an attractive location, where we could walk quaint streets, window shop, enjoy sumptuous meals and perhaps take in some basic sightseeing.  The Inn at Perry Cabin came up during my internet search.  Located in St. Michaels Maryland, in Talbot County Maryland, St. Michaels is part of Maryland’s storied Eastern Shore. As a native of Maryland (born and raised) I can tell you in the summer Maryland’s Eastern Shore is one of the more glorious locations to visit along the Eastern Seaboard.

With a host of festivals and events, St. Michaels certainly has its’ share of tourist events.  But what you may love most of all is strolling the streets, smashing some crab on newspaper for lunch or eating at one of their fine restaurants.

When it comes to accommodations, The Inn at Perry Cabin is the creme de la creme. The rooms average $500 per night, so needless to say many of our fellow guests were also there celebrating “special” occasions such as milestone birthdays and anniversaries.

If you want to splurge, this is certainly a great place to do it! If not, there are a number of other small inns around town.

Every room beautifully evokes understated 19th-century elegance.

Soak up the period feel with original features and plush furnishings. Generous queen or king-sized beds guarantee a restful stay. Water or garden views offer stunning, tranquil outlooks.

Superior Rooms
Stay in our historic colonial section. Stylish dark-wood furnishings contrast with the light décor and crisp white linens. Exquisite plantation shutters hark back to a bygone era. Most rooms also enjoy a private patio overlooking beautifully manicured gardens.

Deluxe Rooms
Decorated in nautical blues and greens, our Deluxe Rooms are a haven of comfort. Enjoy the sea air from the balcony, patio or veranda. Gaze across the estate’s manicured waterfront lawns.

Deluxe Waterview Rooms
Part of the historic colonial section, Deluxe Waterview Rooms offer refined style. Be captivated by panoramic views of the river. Luxuriate in a deep-soak tub in the sumptuous en-suite bathroom.

We stayed in a Superior Room, which is the least expensive room they offer. At an average of $475.00 per night it only goes up from here! But can you really put a price on luxury? (chuckles)

We had a private patio where we could enjoy wine in the afternoon and privacy!
