Wild for Wildset

A new, rustic-chic escape in the heart of St. Michaels

Opened in 2021, The Wildset Hotel channels the laid-back charm of Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Housed in four vintage buildings in downtown St. Michaels, the 34-room property was renovated and reimagined with vintage and modern touches by California-based Kathryn Lager Design Studio. Custom and antique furniture, aged-brass accents and handmade tile embellish the rooms and suites—many of which boast freestanding gas fireplaces and private balconies or terraces. The landscaped grounds feature outdoor lounge areas and fire pits; bikes are available for jaunts around town. 

The Ruse, a restaurant on site, has garnered accolades for its seafood-centric fare. It offers a raw bar and a beverage program focused on small-production beers and wines as well as contemporary cocktails.

Rates including Continental breakfast range from $249 to $559. thewildset.com; ruserestaurant.com
