Autumn In St. Michaels………..

Fall is one of the best times to visit St. Michaels and stay at Five Gables Inn & Spa.  Town is decorated with pumpkins, straw and scarecrows – ready for Thanksgiving.  And, Five Gables is offering special off season rates on accommodations.  Book a room with a private bath with a whirlpool tub and a fireplace and save 30% from our regular winter room rates!  Walk around town,  shop, eat at some of the best restaurants on the Eastern Shore, get a massage in our Aveda Spa or just sit on your porch and watch the world go by.  It doesn’t get any better than that!

24th Annual Antique & Classic Boat Festival

Antique boats take over St. Michaels on June 18th. Come see classic Chris Crafts, Trumpys and Garwoods. Watch a boat building demonstration or enjoy shopping for nautical arts & crafts.

Five Gables is the perfect place to stay for this event. Park your car and walk over to the Maritime Museum and enjoy. Come back to the Inn in the afternoon and relax around the indoor pool. Take a steam or sauna or indulge in a massage with one of our Aveda trained Therapists.

It’s Back!!!!!

Five Gables’ most popular package – the one and only Spa and Sail Package begins on May 1st.

Sail on one of the oldest skipjacks on the Chesapeake, the Rebeca T. Ruark. This boat is listed on the National Historic Register and opened Good Morning America several years ago. She is owned and sailed by Captain Wade Murphy . Captain Wade is a third generation waterman and shares all his great stories with his “crew”.

After the sail, come back into St. Michaels and enjoy a dozen crabs and a pitcher of beer at the iconic Crab Claw – the original crab house in St. Michaels.

This package also includes accommodations for two people for two nights and two 1-hour massages. It starts at $600.00 for a midweek stay.

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!
