This is the Eastern Shore reimagined.

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

The two-story main building sits at the heart of the property. Originally a schoolhouse, in 1871 it was bought by the Hambleton family who turned it into their home. Fast forward to today, and another local family, the Erkiletians, have again infused the space with the warmth of home.

The original structure and Victorian porch remain but are buoyed by of-the-moment upgrades, including spacious and light-filled guest rooms with gas fireplaces, the onsite Ruse Restaurant, and the thoughtfully curated Sundry and Coffee Shop.

Design details such as hand-crafted tiles, aged brass and pewter accents, antique and custom furniture, and wide plank oak floors anchor the space and carry over into the similarly charming buildings across the way.

These two additional historic structures are connected by The Garden, a pastoral setting providing guests the perfect place for their morning yoga and coffee, as well as their first glass of wine in the evening.

Adjacent to The Garden is The Milk Truck Garage, a historic barn that will eventually become a dedicated private event space at The Wildset. Each building is unified by an undercurrent of thoroughly considered details, design, and hospitality.
