There’s no doubt the premier property in St. Michaels is the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Inn at Perry Cabin by Belmond. Located along a wide expanse of the Miles River waterfront, the 78-room hotel was originally built as a home for War of 1812 Navy veteran Samuel Hambleton, and has been a hotel for over 100 years, including a period of notable ownership by Laura Ashley executive Sir Bernard Ashley. Book the Master Suite, a spacious two-room, 1.5-bath suite on the ground floor of the hotel, featuring panoramic water views and a large private terrace. Don’t miss the pampering in-house Linden Spa and the Forbes Recommended Stars restaurant, either.
For charm at a lesser price point, the Five Gables Inn & Spa on Talbot Street in town is another option, or head just outside St. Michaels to Easton, where you can opt for the posh Inn at 202 Dover, a member of Historic Hotels of America or the equally luxe Tidewater Inn.
