Falling Asleep to the Sounds of the Chesapeake in Maryland
Curled up on an Adirondack chair, sipping a glass of sherry at sunset, the Chesapeake Bay stretches out before you like glass. When you’re nestled on 12 acres of verdant woodland, it’s easy to forget about the hustle of Washington, DC, just an hour and a half drive away. Just outside of historic Chestertown, the Great Oak Manor is an 18th-century jewel with picture-book rooms and prices that won’t give you sticker shock. Lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves in the bay, you wake up refreshed and dive into the delectable breakfast of fruit and frittatas, complete with silver service and china. What more could a food and wine diva ask for?
