It doesn’t get any better than that!
The 15th annual Jack Russell Terrier Races were held on the lawn at the Inn at Perry Cabin yesterday. The weather was beautiful, the crowd was the biggest ever and the dogs were spectacular. If you haven’t seen Jacks race, put it on your calendar for next year. These little guys can really get going – some chase the fake squirrel and some chase each other. Either way, it is really something to see and enjoy. And, if you are a Dachshund fan, we have several heats of Dachshund Dashes that are a riot. Short legs and all – these guys don’t fly like Jacks but they do get moving! This year we were fortunate to be able to raise $3,400.00 for our local food bank.
Did you know we are dog friendly at Five Gables Inn & Spa. We have 4 rooms and a suite that are dedicated to our guests who love to travel with their four legged friends. We have beds and dog bowls that we lend our furry guests. And, we give each and every one of our four legged guests a treat and a toy from Flying Freds. We really love to pamper all of our guests here! And of course, we suggest a visit to Flying Freds – our upscale pet boutique – even if you don’t bring a furry friend with you.
Fireworks were spectacular this year. They lit up the sky over St. Michaels with brilliant colors and loud explosions. Guests at Five Gables enjoyed the festivities on the lawn at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. This is always a prime spot on the Miles River for viewing fireworks. And, this year, our guests also enjoyed the big band sounds of the Rhythm Doctors, a favorite group at the CBMM. Put this event on your calendar for next year – fabulous fireworks, great music and a relaxing stay at Five Gables Inn & Spa – it couldn’t be any better!
Come join us for Fireworks In St. Michaels! The show will be bigger and better than ever! Stay with us at Five Gables and receive tickets to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum for a night of great music, dancing and the best fireworks display on the Chesapeake!
