Escapes – Inn at Perry Cabin

By Sandra Ramani / September 11, 2012

Relaxation is the name of the game at the Inn at Perry Cabin, a 78-room boutique resort set in a colonial-era mansion on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. (Fans of the movie The Wedding Crashers will recognize it as the stand-in for the Senator’s weekend house.) There’s actually plenty to do here—complimentary bike rentals, guided walks through the historic town, tours of the 200-year-old gardens, sunset cruising along the Miles River—but according to staffers, once most guests settle into one of the oversized chairs on the riverside great lawn, book or glass of wine in hand, life comes to a stand-still. Adding to the mellow vibe is the Linden Spa, a seven-room facility where botanicals rule: A custom rose-lavender tea is served in the lounge, and there’s an on-site apothecary where therapists whip-up products using ingredients grown on-property. The signature Five Flower Solace scrub/wrap features anti-inflammatory blue cornflower, purifying chamomile and antioxidant jasmine, plus targeted massage. Garden-fresh ingredients are also featured on the menus of Chef Mark Timms, whose sustainability program guarantees that all produce is sourced from within a 50-mile radius, seafood comes from Chesapeake waters, and international products are Fair Trade.
