Carmel Cove Inn in Oakland

A former monastery and now a luxurious inn, Carmel Cove Inn knows how to spoil its guests. There will be two glasses of sherry and sweet chocolates waiting for you after your relaxing whirlpool bath. Curl up at your very own fireplace as you read a book or watch a show on the flat-screen TV. And of course, sleeping in the King bed with the finest linens will definitely give the sweetest dreams. The Inn’s location is also perfect for winter sports activities at the Wisp Ski Resort, which is only 10 minutes away. If you’re traveling in the summer, you can take a canoe out on Deep Creek Lake for an intimate experience under the sun.

Wake up to a gourmet-style breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice. If you and your partner are hitting the slopes early or going on a mountain hike, a continental breakfast will be ready for you in the dining room. The B&B’s three suites and seven rooms all have its own gas fireplaces and private bathrooms. And after a busy day outdoors, treat yourself to the massage room, steam shower, or sauna—amenities that you don’t regularly find in a B&B.

The Castle Bed & Breakfast in Cumberland

A Scottish castle that’s a B&B sounds out of this world, but it does exist in Cumberland! Each of its six rooms has its own personality, and you’ll definitely feel like blue-blooded royalty as you take in the period antiques, furniture, and step-up canopy beds. Don’t miss having an afternoon high tea and stroll through the exquisite gardens. To give you a short history of The Castle, it used to be a simple stone house that was converted into a replica of a castle in the Scottish Highlands by Scottish entrepreneur Andrew Ramsay. After the Great Depression and Ramsay lost his ownership of the castle, it became a dance hall, brothel, casino, and apartment house. A huge renovation was finally made on the castle in 1984 and it was turned into a B&B in 1986. If you’re ready for your romantic getaway, do give them a call at (301) 264-4645.

Kent Manor Inn on Kent Island

For a romantic and culinary weekend getaway, have the Kent Manor Inn as your destination and take French cooking lessons from a renowned French chef. Staying at the Inn is like going back to the past when the Inn was built in 1820. If you are fond of ghost-hunting, you may very well appreciate this hotel because of the so-called “mysterious activities” that go on in the middle section of the Inn, where the owner’s bedroom used to be. Some heard banging pipes, and some experienced flickering lights and doors that open on its own. If this doesn’t deter you, find out more about this historic hotel on their website at http://www.kentmanor.com/.
