We had a lovely 2 day stay at the Inn at Perry Cabin midweek in September. We reserved the "Summer Escape" package which included breakfast, afternoon tea, and dinner - and we had a studio room.
The Inn was not very crowded when we visited and quite a few of the businesses in St. Michaels weren't open. We enjoyed the infinity pool, and had it pretty much to ourselves. It was an outdoor pool which didn't seem to use chlorine - so you didn't get that smell in the air which was very pleasant. The only problem was some fairly aggressive horseflies which viewed us as tempting targets if we chose to use the floats.
There was a pool bar but it was only open one of the days we were there. There was also a pub in the inn - we never saw anyone in there though it looked very nice.
We enjoyed our meals in the restaurant - food and service were top notch (with one exception - see below). Everything we ate was wonderful - many of the dishes featured crab and were excellent. The restaurant wasn't crowded and we were able to enjoy breakfast and lunch outside on the patio which was very pleasant.
The one hiccup was at breakfast one day - there was a very inexperienced server who seemed very unfamiliar with breakfast (and she wasn't getting much help from anyone either). She mixed up orders, couldn't tell us what was included with our package, didn't check back to refill coffee, etc. Very unusual for this type of luxury property. We commented to the maitre d' that we were disappointed with the service we received. He acknowledged our complaint but we never heard back from anyone in management - unusual for this level of establishment.
However, other than that, we had a very restful stay. The room was large and comfortable, with a huge bathroom with stand alone tub and separate shower, as well as two sinks on opposite walls - very nice. There was a fireplace though we didn't use it since temperatures were warm.
They have a computer hooked up to the internet so you can check your email - no need to bring your own.
There is also a nice spa with a fitness center - we didn't use it but we checked it out and were impressed.
Overall, we would highly recommend this property for a restful getaway.
