Herrington Harbour Inn

Location: 7149 Lake Shore Drive,
Rose Haven, Md.

Drive time:
Just under three hours.

Cost: $109-$169 weekdays, $139-$299 weekends; suites begin at $249.

The scoop:
Part of an “Eco-Lifestyle Resort” (based on sustainable living practices and ecological sensitivity) on Herring Bay, less than an hour from Annapolis, this beachfront, circa-1950s inn and marina is Caribbean cool without the kitsch.

Hot-tub rooms have private patios. An on-site pastry chef bakes up treats for the complimentary Continental breakfast. The property’s restaurants specialize in Chesapeake and global cuisine with locally sourced ingredients.

Don’t miss:
A visit to Herrington Harbour North’s Historic Village, an ongoing project to restore a collection of 19th-century structures, including a residence, school, log smokehouse, meetinghouse and dairy. Ask about the inn’s Eco Family Package, which includes a two-hour kayak tour of the bay, a box lunch and a 2-mile eco-walk.
