Leave your everyday world behind and discover the restful escapism you’ve been seeking at The Wildset.

Rooted in the rugged beauty of the Chesapeake, this chic and timeless property has been completely renovated with vintage and modern touches. Bask in our light-filled, thoughtfully-curated rooms, relax in a lounge chair, cocktail in hand, wander amongst our peaceful green spaces and the charming town of St Michaels, and enjoy delicious and seasonal offerings at our restaurant, Ruse.



Named in honor of the town that fooled the British, Ruse restaurant embraces the legacy of St. Michaels while providing a fresh take on local cuisine.



The Wildset Hotel sits on idyllic North Talbot Street in St Michaels on the Chesapeake Bay. Composed of four nineteenth-century buildings, each pays homage to the town’s heritage yet is updated with luxurious modern amenities.


Spread across 3 historic homes, our 34 rooms are each slightly different and unique.

All have been completely renovated and updated for a modern Eastern Shore experience - rooted in place and curated for the modern traveler.
