“Skip the Bridge” this Summer with Inn at Perry Cabin


When I think of luxury travel, I imagine being on board the Venice-Simplon Orient Express, or crossing the Atlantic on board a ship like the “Constitution” where Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr began their romance in my favorite romantic movie, “An Affair to Remember”.

Recently I had the pleasure of joining other press colleagues as guests of the Inn at Perry Cabin to experience a new level of luxury service they offer their guests, the “Skip the Bridge” package.

Imagine it is a busy summer weekend and you dropped off your car at the Pier 7 Resort Marina in Annapolis at a reserved parking spot. Then you board the Inn at Perry Cabin’s luxurious 55 foot Hinckley yacht to begin an approximately forty-five minute cruise down the Bay. The two-man crew, immaculate in uniforms and white gloves, store your luggage below. As you sip complementary champagne, languidly relaxing on the open deck, the crew offers you gourmet treats from an apparently bottomless picnic basket.

You might glance at the Bay Bridge as you zip past and perhaps see a slow line of cars advancing along while you are relaxed and stress-free as you sip that second glass of champagne.

Once you arrive at the Inn, the crew takes your luggage to your VIP check-in and you continue your get-a-away stay in your luxury accommodation. After your visit and VIP check-out, you again board the Hinkley for your return trip back to the Pier 7 Marina. The cruise departs the Marina at 3:00 pm on Friday and departs the Inn at Perry Cabin at 2:00 pm on Sunday. The “Skip the Bridge” package is available through October 28, 2018 with a two-night minimum stay required.
