Situated on the harbor in the town of St. Michael's in Maryland's breathtaking Eastern Shore region, St. Michael's Harbour Inn Marina and Spa is a picturesque waterfront destination that attracts visitors who return year after year to enjoy the view. Built in 1986, the property has been owned by real estate and banking entrepreneur Bob Pascal since 1999. The property has been continuously upgraded since Pascal took sole possession of the property and the spa was added in 2004.
St. Michael's Harbour Inn features 38 suites and eight single guest rooms. All rooms include amenities one would expect to find in an upscale hotel including plush bedding and linens, large private baths, warm terry robes, DVD players, cable TV, and more. Guests can choose from about a half dozen different accommodations, ranging from the large Admiral Suites with panoramic views and Jacuzzi tubs to less ornate guest rooms with one bed and a harbor view.
Aside from a choice of rooms, guests can also choose to spend their nights aboard their boat, docked at St. Michael's Harbour Inn's 50-slip transient marina. Here, guests can enjoy most of the same amenities enjoyed by hotel guests. Boaters will have access to city water and dockside electricity, modern and spacious showers, complimentary cable hook-up, a pumping station, laundry facilities, wireless internet, and daily complimentary coffee and newspapers.
Resort amenities that are available to both hotel and marina guests also include an outdoor pool and hot tub, complimentary bicycle use, water taxi service from the dock, and complimentary shuttle service from the resort to nearby destinations.
The on-site Shore Restaurant and Lounge, known for its fine cuisine, serves local seafood as well as meat, pastas, and other succulent dishes. The restaurant is open for dinner while the lounge serves lunch. Cocktails and light fare are available at both locations and the restaurant serves Sunday Brunch as well.
The full service Spa at Harbour Inn sports a soothing atmosphere with warm woods, comfortable furniture, and clean, spacious treatment rooms. Facilities also include men's and women's changing rooms, showers, lockers, and a relaxation room. Open to guests age 16 and over, the Spa at Harbour Inn has a varied menu of treatments which include facials for various skin types featuring the use of botanical skin care products; several kinds of massage therapy such as Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone, and Harbour Inn's signature Wild Lime scalp and body massage; reflexology treatments; and a variety of additional body treatments such as antioxidant scrubs, skin smoothing therapies, body polish, various wraps, and self tanning. At the Spa's salon, guests can enjoy traditional services such as waxing, manicures, pedicures, and paraffin treatments.
The resort offers special spa packages that combine a stay in one of the resort's rooms or suites with a selection of spa services. Friends can also come together and book a pajama party, popular with bridal parties. Reservations for any spa services are recommended, especially during the summer season when the Eastern Shore is most crowded.
St. Michael's Harbour Inn and Spa also has plenty of room for meetings and other special events, including small weddings.
