As I wrote about in my last post, I had an eventful 4th of July in Cambridge, Maryland, including a scary stay at a deserted Bed and Breakfast. The 5th of July turned out a lot calmer - and quite wonderful. We went water skiing and tubing again, before heading towards DC. On the way, we decided to stop at the Inn at Perry Cabin, a luxurious hotel/resort in St. Michaels, Maryland. I had heard about it from a colleague and we decided to stop by for a look and dinner.
The hotel is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been and the restaurant was fantastic. We walked around the grounds and it is just gorgeous. The flowers and landscaping, not to mention the herb garden, which looks like an intricate English garden, made the place very special. It overlooks the Chesapeake Bay, so you can sit and relax on the waterfront. There are several sailboats right on front of the hotel as well. One of the coolest facts about the Inn at Perry Cabin is that the movie Wedding Crashers was filmed there! (As you know, there were many weddings in Wedding Crashers but this was the one on the amazing property overlooking the water, where one of the crashers falls for the sister of the bride.) How cool is that!
I wrote a restaurant review over at the main Slow Travel site (click here to read it) but I wanted to use this space to share some photos of the place.
We had drinks on the terrace overlooking the Bay before heading indoors for dinner. We also learned some fascinating facts about the resport: The original part of the building has rooms filled with antiques, private balconies, and each one has its own character. In the new wing, the rooms are huge, Ralph Lauren style suites with a nautical theme. We also checked out the spa, which was amazing! Lots of natural light and beautiful fabrics. (Our friend A. had just got back from Afghanistan so it was wonderful for her to walk around in this peaceful, beautiful spot.)
Our dinner at the Inn at Perry Cabin was a pretty perfect ending to the holiday weekend - and made me forget the scary BB!!
