We were ready to have another sail so when Dylan returned we headed over to the other side of the Chesapeake Bay close to Rockhall. After about 3 hours of trying to catch wind (the wind had died down) we ended up motoring over near to Rockhall and dropped anchor and had a swim - we then headed back and arrived back at Pleasure Cove around 7pm after ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Inn at Perry Cabin by Orient-Express Saint Michaels
Perry Cabin is so relaxing
The Inn a Perry Cabin was such a relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of the City. We loved our charming suite which overlooked a wet lands preserve. It was great to see that they were being so conscientious about perserving the natural beauty of the Chesapeake Bay. The service was charming and friendly and we were thoroughly rejuvenated. Are planning to getaway again in the Fall and will head for Perry Cabin.
Heaven on the Bay
It was HEAVEN! Only 2 hours from Philadelphia, yet world's away. Food was especially fantastic. If you are looking for a place to relax, this is it!
Not worth the price
I had high expectations for the Inn at Perry Cabin. None of them were met. I cannot believe that they can charge the prices they do as the value is just not there. We had many details that were missing from what should be, based on the price, a first class operation. I don't sense any cohesion amongst the staff. Too many items to list out, but we won't go back here unless the rooms were less than $100 a night as that is all it's worth. This was a two day honeymoon for us and we spent way too much time interacting with staff on our issues.
I think they are riding on a past reputation?
I reserved at the last minute when they had only the $720 Master suites left. They indicated I would have a water view, and an array of accoutrements that are part of this sutie. THey also indicated since it was last minute and thye had rooms, they would charge me $450. For this amt I got a very rudimentary suite with a view of the mud flats...it had it spluses. But the lovely clapboard has been turned to aluminum siding, the Lura Ashley fabrics are long gone, and there are rudimentary facilities. Sunday breakfast, including room service, stops at 10am and brunch doesn't start until 12 noon. We called room service at 10:05 to be dinied any food. Basically mit's nice but not int he league with other Orient Experess Hotels and theprice is way too high for whatis simply a very nice large motel with a wonderful waterfront.
attended conference in August 2003. Beautiful rooms but service was awful. managment not attentive to guests needs. houskeeping bad and very slow. often late afternoon before rooms cleaned and then not very well. overpiced to say the least. would not stay here again. managment never followed up with our group on satisfaction of confernece. master bill overcharged us by $30,000. took forever to get straightened out. events coordinator was so new she didn't know what she was doing and has since left. They want your money but don't care anything about you once you've left.
A Great Weekend
I spent the weekend of Oct. 25 at this Inn. I was traveling with my daughter and neice from Washington D.C. Upon arrival, our room was ready and we were taken there by a very polite young man. He showed us where everything was in our suite. At the desk they confirmed our dinner reservation. We relaxed outside overlooking the water until dark. Our dinner in the Dining Room was excellent!! Service was knowledegable, friendly and polite. Our choice of wine was respected and carefully decanted. My daughter who chose the wine commented on the list---very well chosen. All staff that we encountered was friendly and polite. We felt very "at home"
We stayed at the Inn at Perry Canbin for 3 nights. Hotel calm, peaceful, beautifully appointed. Staff friendly, helpful, professional.We ate breakfast and dinner each night and had lunch one day. All meals were beautifully presented, very unusual and very good to eat. A wonderful holiday and worth a second visit.
Very nice, but....
Stayed in one of the middle rated room for $600 a night. Rooms are excellent, clean, very nicely decorated. Had a very nice breakfast in the main dining area. Final assessment - the value is low; it just seems too much money for what was delivered. Perhaps the competative environment drives what the market will bear.
We stayed at the Inn at Perry Cabin over this past Labor Day Weekend.
The service at this hotel was about the worst we have experienced anywhere regardless of cost. The staff was unprofessional and couldn't have been less helpful. The swimming pool area is uninviting, and we avoided it even though the temperatute was 95 degrees. Management appears to be clueless as to how to run a quality operation. The only thing first tier about this hotel is the price.
We loved it!
This is one of my favorite places to stay anywhere. Everything about our stay was great. We ate late in the bar. We had room service for breakfast. The little courtyard for our room was private and comfortable.
