Farm to table, Eastern Shore style

The Eastern Shore is more than our home, it’s an immense ecosystem that is returning to healthy, sustainable abundance. We work closely with the fishermen, crabbers, oystermen and farmers around us to bring you fresh ingredients that are healthy for you and our region.

We even maintain our own gardens, where we grow the flowers for your room, herbs for our kitchens and bars, even botanicals that we use in the spa.
