Your time to discover the suite life of the Eastern Shore is less than a two-hour drive from D.C. It's true that the movie "Wedding Crashers" was filmed at The Inn at Perry Cabin (308 Watkins Lane, St. Michaels, Md.) but most will concur that the resort is even more picturesque than it seems on film.
Not only does the resort have the state's oldest Holly tree (we know you're thrilled), but its historic gardens have been cultivated for more than 200 years, stretching all the way down to Maryland's Eastern Shore.
Nearly 80 intimate guest rooms and suites ($390-$530/night) complete this circa-1816 manor house resort and spa. Many suites come with separate living areas and fireplaces. If you choose to arrive by boat, we're happy to tell you there's no docking fee. And, bonus! Dogs are welcome.
And as far as pools go, we tend to think that an infinity pool is the crème de la crème of them all -- and yep, they have that too... as well as indoor/outdoor relaxation rooms, a steam room and yoga classes.
If you're visiting on a Friday this winter (through March 30), indulge in Oyster Nights from 6 to 10 p.m. in the Pursers Pub. Delight in fresh Chesapeake oyster dishes including Po Boys, fried oysters, oysters in half shell, and oyster Stew. Pair your feast with Eastern Shore Brew Beer or Pommery champagne.
Packages offered will include fine dining to spa treatments. The winter Indulgence package is your best in the colder months at $225/night with a complimentary room upgrade upon your arrival.
