Overview

A clapboard colonial darling in storied St Michaels, Inn at Perry Cabin by Belmond is a bayside boutique hotel and spa with fresh, gently nautical modern interiors and smatterings of antiquity. Its gardens – 200 years old and containing Maryland's oldest holly tree – are a vision of leafy loveliness and the inn's Linden Spa alone is a reason to visit Chesapeake Bay. Ride bikes, sail or just sit around taking in the scenery and, round here, there's plenty to admire…

Surrounded by blossoms and lined with flowerbeds, the infinity pool is open in the summer from May to August.

Hotel Restaurant

Sherwood's Landing is refined-but-relaxed riverfront dining room, with a neutral palette, old-school linen-dressed tables, garden views framed by floor-to-ceiling windows and a lighthouse-like beacon. The scallops, local beets and crisp pears come highly recommended. Between 3pm and 5pm each day, a trad English afternoon tea is on offer in the drawing room.

Hotel Bar

The snug, laid-back Pursers Pub overlooks the flowery courtyard. Choose your favourite tipple from the wall of spirits. To eat, fried duck drumsticks and crab, spinach and artichoke dip don’t disappoint. Wash it down with a Chesapeake Bay Retriever cocktail: herb-infused vodka, orange juice and grenadine.

Breakfast is 7am–10am; lunch, 12 noon–2.30pm; and dinner is served up 6pm–9.30pm. Order bites from the pub menu until 10pm; sip cocktails till 11pm.

Smith Insider

Dress code

Chinos and white linen button-downs for gents; ladies could rock a floaty DVF frock or skinny white jeans, nautical stripes and heels.

Top table

In Sherwood’s Landing, the roaring fireplace makes the surrounding tables romantic hotspots. Garden-gazing window seats are scenic and serene. Lunch on the patio is a must in summer.

Inn at Perry Cabin by Belmond

By Mr & Mrs Smith.

Mr & Mrs Smith have just returned from a stay at this Maryland boutique hotel, and as soon as they've unpacked their Old Bay Seasoning and sea glass vases, a full account of their US luxury coastal break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick postcard from the Inn at Perry Cabin by Belmond in St Michaels…

In search of leafy grounds, peaceful waterside respite and classic colonial style? Then set sail for the Inn at Perry Cabin, a storied and stately bayside boutique hotel that's perfect for sailors and landlubbers alike. The clean, white clapboard inn is surrounded by centuries-old gardens with lush lawns and riots of flowers. Wooden benches and Adirondack chairs face the Miles River – just the spot for lazy afternoons of page-flipping, wine-sipping and snoozing.

In many hotels, the mash-up of modern and antique backfires, but Perry Cabin gets it seamlessly, evocatively right. Conversation-starting sepia photos and sketches of sailboats and shells line the walls; common areas are dotted with model yachts and other nautical notions that somehow sidestep kitsch. Bright and airy bedrooms boast ravishing relics, gleaming chrome lamps and cool slate floors.

Pack a picnic, pull up on a patch of green and kick back for the day, or take one of the free bikes and cruise mild-mannered St Michaels. Whether you spend the day sailing (there's a school in the grounds), blissing out in the Linden spa or just wandering around the gardens smiling to yourself – you can’t help but fall under the spell of this botanical beauty.
