When you’re craving the water but find yourself cringing at the thought of tourist-packed beaches and sand all over your body, the town of St. Michaels, Maryland on the Miles River is worth a trip. And if you book a stay through Five Star Alliance at the town’s Inn at Perry Cabin, you can experience the nautical community with a little help from professional athletes.

At just one and a half hours driving distance from Washington, D.C., The Inn at Perry Cabin is the ideal spot for a quick getaway or a weeklong retreat. The waterfront estate provides guests cozy-yet-spacious rooms, pool access, and of course, water activities like boating, sailing, and crabbing. However, one of the most unique experiences the inn offers is professional on-site instruction in both sailing and tennis.

For a day filled with activity and adventure, head toward the water to try your hand at sailing. Whether you’re new to the maritime sport or you’ve sailed all seven seas, the on-site pros will make your Perry Cabin sailing experience one to remember. When you’re ready to give your sea legs a break, play a round of after-dinner tennis at the inn’s lighted Har-Tru courts. The property keeps a handful of tennis professionals on hand as well to lead some of the best lessons available in the Mid-Atlantic United States.

In addition to exhilarating sports instruction, guests may choose more leisurely activities at the inn such as spa treatments, golf at the stunning Links course, and shopping in the nearby downtown area. Not to mention, guests who book through Five Star Alliance also receive a $100 resort credit and daily breakfast at Stars, the property’s fine-dining restaurant.
