Local Wine & Beer Tastings

Tasting Room-- St. Michaels Winery
Tasting Room– St. Michaels Winery

St. Michaels has long been known for fine dining, with a variety of top notch restaurants featuring regional cuisine. In recent years, we’ve also gained recognition for the wonderful local wine and beer from St. Michaels Winery and the Eastern Shore Brewing Company, both of which have tasting rooms located in downtown St. Michaels, a short walk up Talbot Street from Five Gables.

St. Michaels Winery was founded in 2005 and offers an array of fine wines made from grapes grown in their Henderson and Wye Mills vineyards. Their wines have won a number of awards, including the Maryland Governor’s Cup “Best in Class” and the Maryland Winemasters Choice Gold Medal. The tasting room is open daily without appointment. You can also contact the Winery ahead of time to schedule a private tasting for a group of 10 or more. Each tasting is conducted by a trained member of the St. Michaels Winery staff and includes wine, a souvenir wine glass, and sample cheeses from Chapel’s Country Creamery.

The Eastern Shore Brewing Company opened in 2008 and has a tasting room located right on Talbot Street in the heart of St. Michaels (very close to the Winery if you want to visit both in one afternoon!). The Brewery offers a variety of beers for sampling and you can even assemble your own variety pack of beer to take home. Each hand crafted beer is brewed directly on the premises and guests are encouraged stop by and taste their St. Michaels Ale, Knot So Pale Ale, and Magic Hefeweizen, to name a few! Tours are also available upon request.

If you’re planning on staying with us here at Five Gables and you enjoy fine wines and beer, give us a call and we’ll help you plan your visits to St. Michaels Winery and the Eastern Shore Brewing Company! You can also consider booking our “Ladies that ‘Wine’” package, which includes two nights’ accommodations for two people, a 30 minute facial and one hour massage each, and a tour, tasting and gift from St. Michaels Winery. See below for pricing and call us for more information!

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful…

The cold weather of the last few weeks has finally delivered the first snow of the season to St. Michaels. The town is lovely covered in its blanket of white, so why not escape to Five Gables and enjoy a relaxing getaway in one of our lavishly renovated rooms?

Winter is the perfect time to take advantage of all that Five Gables has to offer, including:

  • Fireplaces in every room
  • The only heated, indoor pool in St. Michaels
  • A full service Aveda spa
  • A sauna and steam room to banish the winter chills!

While we have plenty for you to do inside our cozy Inn, should you choose to venture out you’ll find yourself in the heart of picturesque St. Michaels, within walking distance of fine dining, boutique shopping, and the harbor for which the town is known.

This winter, we’re offering fantastic mid-week rates. With rooms at $99 a night and suites at $149 a night, a midweek getaway has never been so tempting!

Trade Spaces with Your Spouse

Wouldn’t it be great if your husband could learn how to cook while you enjoy a relaxing spa experience? Well our Trading Spaces package allows just that.

We have recently created a package that allows couples to spend an interactive and relaxing weekend away from the kids. The men will attend a 2-3 hour cooking class that will involve them in some of the preparation for the evening’s dinner. And ladies, while your husband is slaving away in the kitchen, you will enjoy and “Ultimate” spa package at the inn. At 6:00 p.m., the couples will reunite and sit down at Gourmet by the Bay for a served dinner that will include the items that the men had helped to prepare earlier in the day.
This package will only be offered on four (4) separate weekends throughout the year in order to maximize the experience, so space is very limited. Be sure to book in advance in order to secure a spot.

Upcoming weekends:

Winter January 28/29, 2011
Spring March 11/12, 2011
Summer July 15/16, 2011
