A Day at Inn at Perry Cabin by Belmond

Inn at Perry Cabin by Belmond

Inn at Perry Cabin by Belmond is the prettiest and coziest hotel I have ever been to. It’s so beautiful that for the whole time that we were doing our tour of the property, I’ve been mentally planning a holiday there with the Greek Mister for next year.

Since I came to the US, I have been on the lookout for charming and small cities around my Mom’s place. Being in the East Coast, it isn’t so hard as the area’s been dotted and blessed with numerous small, charming and historic cities. I came across Talbot County at the Eastern shore of Maryland and immediately fell in love with it. The whole place is surrounded by water and as you may well know, water can make any place even prettier. πŸ™‚

As I have only a day to spare, I needed to know the best places to go in that county and what I shouldn’t miss. Who’s better to contact to know all these but the tourism board of Talbot County itself? I was immediately assisted and was given all the information I needed and the bonus part was, they connected me to the people of Inn at Perry Cabin by Belmond in St Michaels, Maryland. Yay!

One Friday morning, my sister and I embarked on a 2-hr road trip to St. Michaels Maryland. You can’t ignore the charm and the laidback atmosphere of the town as soon as you enter it. I’m not a big fan of big cities and this place for me is a slice of heaven.

We were met by the very hospitable and informative Alexis as soon as we arrived. I love how she’s very passionate about her work which made me like the property even more. The hotel exudes charm and a personal touch that no other branded hotel can ever make you feel.

I love that no two rooms will be identical – you can stay here numerous times and always get a different experience. The colonial-styled rooms all offer a balcony with a view of the beautiful grounds of the property and the lake. Your vacation mode will be automatically switched on as soon as you walk into one of their rooms.

The whole expanse of the property is surrounded by well-manicured lawn which extends to the waters of Maryland’s Eastern shore. Alexis mentioned that during the warmer climates, there will be a lot more flowers and greenery surrounding the place. Too bad that it was winter when we went there. She also told us that parts of the movie “The Wedding Crashers” were shot here, I’m not really a big fan of that movie but I can definitely see the property’s potential to be a movie location. It’s a very photogenic place with a postcard worthy scenery in every way you turn!

After the tour, we had lunch at Stars restaurant where I had the most amazing crab cake sandwich! Maryland is famous for its crabs and for the 4 months that I’ve been here – the crab cake sandwich at the Inn at Perry Cabin by Belmond was my first in Maryland and I’m certainly glad that it was. They ruined it altogether for me though as my mind is now set for a very high standard of crab cakes. :p

My sister had the rock fish which was their catch of the day and was equally amazing! Our waiter Wayne was entertaining and very attentive in a non-intrusive way. He was also very passionate of what he does and I realized that it’s very rare for people these days to actually love what they do. Meeting two people who are happy with their jobs in the same company definitely gives you an idea of wonderful it is to be here.

I’m not sure if its the beautiful surroundings which gave me a euphoric feeling of being in their property or maybe the chef put something on my crab cake to make me feel that way. Whatever it is, I loved this place and I am definitely going back there for one whole weekend for the summer.

A huge thanks to Cassandra of Talbot County and the lovely people of Inn at Perry Cabin by Belmond (Kristen, Rachel, Alexis and Wayne).

Disclaimer: My tour of Inn at Perry Cabin by Belmond was a personal trip of my sister and I. I was not paid nor commissioned to write this piece however, lunch was offered complimentary but we didn’t find out about it until the end of our meal. πŸ™‚ As always, opinions expressed here are my own.

    I love charming places like this, although I’ve never stayed in one that’s so huge! I’ve seen them a lot, though. My dad is from the area and I love it up there.

      Oh that’s great if you’re dad is from the area, you’ll have time to visit this place. πŸ™‚

    The crab cake sammy looks delish! And I love classically traditional inns. We have quite a few of these in the Niagara-on-the-Lake region if you ever come up to Toronto – it’s a winery region nearby, perfect to step away from the city sights for an overnight trip.

      Oh I love classic traditional inns definitely. I will take a note of that area whenever my travels lead me to Canada. πŸ™‚

    This place is so classically quaint. Lovely grounds and fantastic rooms. The food looks incredible too!

    This is such a charming inn. I loved the gazebo out in the back and that it’s surrounded by water. They were also so nice to offer you a complimentary dinner.

      I think that area with the gazebo would look much better during spring or maybe even fall. πŸ™‚

    Although the place looks absolutely magical, I don’t think I can stay here longer than a night. I get very antsy living in isolated places for too long. I guess I am a city boy or a beach dude lol I need crowds but not too much of a crowd either. I also need something to do at all times. Can;t just sit around or walk about aimlessly.

    This is surely a nice place for a romantic getaway for a night away from troubles and the hustle bustle.

      Hahahaha! I do get what you mean because my sister is exactly like you. While I can easily see myself stay there for even a full week, she said she can’t possibly survive in this place for more than a weekend. Lol. Just like you, she’s city girl. :p

    I quite agree that any place looks lovely with water nearby. There’s something mesmerising looking out over a lake or watching a river gently flow by. Rooms with balconies are a lovely touch πŸ™‚

    Such a gorgeous hotel! And that food looks so delicious! It sounds like that they treated you really well and you had a great time with your sister. This is definitely the kind of place I would stay. I would keep it in mind for the next time I am in Maryland.

    We love the inn. From the minute we drive up the beautiful driveway till we have to depart down the same road, we feel relaxed, happy and excited to be there. Although we don’t go as often as we would like, we cherish each and everyday. Loved your report!

    • Reply Pinay Flying High January 5, 2015 at 21:20

      It definitely is one of a kind. I wish I can go back too as often as I’d like. πŸ™‚
