The Luxury Set on the fringes of Chesapeake Bay, St. Michaels is a mecca for aficionados of wildlife (bald eagles, osprey, and falcons) and R&R alike. This historic waterside village is also home to antiques shops, crab shacks, and charming B&Bs and inns. The 20-room Five Gables Inn & Spa stands out for its proximity to the bay (just three blocks away); unique setting in four converted 19th-century houses; on-site Aveda Concept Spa; and indoor pool, sauna, and steam room.
The Value The Spa & Sail package (with prices starting at $520) offers two nights accommodations, daily breakfast, two massages, a 2-hour sailboat cruise on the Chesapeake, and a crab-and-beer feast at a local restaurant. From July 1 to November 1, Shermans Travel readers receive $50 off standard rates and a complimentary dinner for two at nearby 208 Talbot.
The Catch The marina for the cruise is a 20-minute drive from the inn.
