Summer in St. Michaels………

Summer in St. Michaels – steamed crabs, sailboat races on the Miles River, the Farmers Market, lazy walks around town, festivals at the Chesapeake Maritime Museum, dinners at fabulous restaurants, shopping in unique boutiques, relaxing afternoons around our indoor pool, a massage or a soak in your own Jacuzzi tub…it doesn’t get any better than spending time at Five Gables Inn & Spa.

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!

Thanksgiving in St. Michaels

St. Michaels is a popular destination during the summer months because of it’s location on the Eastern shore, but did you know that it is just as beautiful throughout autumn and winter?

St. Michaels is so quaint and beautiful during the fall season, but if you haven’t had the chance to experience it yet, time is running out! Thanksgiving is right around the corner and there is absolutely nothing like spending the holiday season in a small, waterfront town.

Why not spend the post-Thanksgiving weekend with us? Avoid the madness of Black Friday by doing all of your shopping in our charming little town.

Many of our local retailers will be offering Black Friday specials, so you can receive the holiday discounts without all of the insanity you would find in a crowded mall.

We have plenty of openings for the weekend of Thanksgiving, but we expect them to go fast, so be sure to book sooner rather than later!
