Dream Weekends: Inn at Perry Cabin

A special getaway for when cost is no object.

St. Michaels, Maryland

This waterside inn, with its sprawling lawn with Adirondack chairs, has an elegant yacht-club feel.

A recent expansion added 41 nautical-chic suites, many with upholstered sleigh beds, delft-tiled fireplaces, mahogany flooring, cashmere throws, and TVs that rise out of a seaman's trunk. The 40 original rooms are decorated in antiques.

Relax alongside the horizon-edge pool tucked into a garden; browse the library's antique books; or borrow a bike for exploring charming St. Michaels. Clipping shears and a vase are in each room if you feel the urge to cut your own fresh blooms.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served in the romantic restaurant, Sherwood's Landing. Among its signature dishes: crab spring rolls, glazed lamb shank, and lobster with fennel gnocchi.

Bottom line: A luxurious place for water lovers to spend a special occasion.

Inn at Perry Cabin, 800-722-2949; Original inn rooms for two start at $295, new suites from $475 a night.
