OUR STAY AT INN AT PERRY CABIN

Last week Will and I had the chance to visit Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels, Maryland, as part of a press trip hosted by the hotel. Inn at Perry Cabin had been on my hotel bucket list forever and it felt so good to travel again! The hotel is a five-star waterfront resort with amenities focused around sailing and surrounded by beautiful gardens and tranquil waters. You might recognize the exterior from a few scenes in Wedding Crashers that were filmed here! St. Michaels, Maryland, is about a four and a half hour drive from our home in Connecticut and it was a lovely getaway for two nights. Here are a few photos from our stay!

Our stay was planned to coordinate with the Return of the Fleet, an annual event where the hotel’s boats return to the property for the start of the spring and summer season. Unfortunately the event was rained out this year, but we managed to squeeze in a pre-dinner sail on our first night and I loved every second of it. Inn at Perry Cabin offers group sails, private charters, and even sailing lessons!

Thanks to all your restaurant recommendations on this Instagram post, we had some amazing meals in St. Michaels! The downtown area, concentrated on Talbot Street, is charming and would be an easy bike ride from Inn at Perry Cabin in nicer weather. We had lunch at Limoncello (highly recommend the Brussels sprouts!) and a traditional Maryland crab dinner at the Crab Claw (when in Rome!). I would love to go back when it’s not raining to explore more of the area on bikes! But in the event it does rain during your visit, you might enjoy a morning at Links at Perry Cabin’s golf simulators or a treatment at their spa (which I’d love to fit in next time!).

STARS AT INN AT PERRY CABIN

We were spoiled with a group dinner at the hotel restaurant Stars and each course was more incredible than the last. Award-winning head chef Gregory James changes the menu every single evening (!) to ensure only the freshest ingredients are used and it was seriously inspiring to hear him talk about his inspirations and ambitions for the Stars restaurant. We also had breakfast in the Stars dining room both mornings and it is such a sunny spot to watch the boats on the water while you enjoy your morning coffee!

WHEN TO VISIT INN AT PERRY CABIN

In general, the weather on Maryland’s eastern shore is more mild than we’re accustomed to in New England, so the season is longer than for properties closer to us in Connecticut. Our visit in early April was unluckily a rainy one, but the grass was much greener than it is farther north, there were lots of daffodils in bloom, and we probably only missed the cherry blossoms by about a week, so I still think it’s a great place for a spring weekend trip! I’ve seen photos of the hotel in June and July where the lawn overlooking the water is filled with blue hydrangeas (yes please!) and I imagine the property is gorgeous well into October as the leaves begin to change. In short, I would go back any time between April and October, but it would probably even be a cozy spot to spend a winter weekend if you’re more interested in the spa than sailing!

  1. The Inn long ago was owned by Lord and lady Ashley aka Laura Ashley. I have the talent of being able to cover A/c vents with wall paper since workmen at the time on the eastern shore did not have the experience to complete the task. I was given several nights stay in the honeymoon suite and meals. St Michael’s is a great place. be sure to eat a soft shell crab sandwich.

  2. This looks amazing! Not super far from me in DC so I’ll start pitching my husband for a weekend trip here at some point. 🙂

    1. We had an unusual experience at Perry Cabin. We had participated in a Hospice fund raising dinner in an Oxford private home. The chief Mark Saulter was awesome, funny and the meal delicious.
      To our surprise the next week chief Mark Saulter was listed as main chief at Perry Cabin. I mentioned to the waiter our previous experience & to thank the chief for the enjoyable dinner. As the over the top meal was ending, out came Mark Saulter to greet us. He then asked if we would like to tour his kitchen? Ahhhhhh a quick yes and we were zipped off to heaven.
      Alas he has moved on but the chief and Perry Cabin will remain as a highlight of a dining experience.
