As Captain John Smith wrote while mapping the Chesapeake Bay, "Heaven and earth have never agreed better to frame a place for man's habitation." Hang yourself a picture-perfect getaway with this week's Escape to the Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa on the shores of Maryland's iconic waterway. Get ready to pose for a one-night stay for two in a Junior Suite ($245) or a King Suite ($295) at this sprawling bayside resort. Curl up in provided terry-cloth robes while you share a welcome bottle of wine on your balcony that overlooks miles of shoreline or––if you choose a King Suite––in front of a private fireplace or private bath and whirlpool. During the day, grab your camera and capture stunning views of watermen on their skipjacks as they harvest oysters from the bay. Or, take a walk along the nearby boardwalks and pop in and out of antique shops boasting wares that provide a snapshot of life on the water. Insert yourself into the scenery with some sport fishing on the resort's property or take a tour of Calvert County's historic lighthouses. Hunting for shark-tooth fossils at Calvert Cliffs is a must. After your afternoon of exploration, get ready for your close-up by using a $100 spa credit to indulge in a hot stone massage or an aromatherapy facial at the on-site spa before painting the town red for dinner. Use your $50 restaurant credit at the Rod'N'Reel for a taste of the Chesapeake Bay that's deftly delivered through the eatery's signature jumbo-lump crab balls, Middleneck clams, Blue Point oysters, baked Maryland crab imperial, and locally caught rockfish served just about any way you like. A picture is worth a thousand words––but after an Escape like this, you're bound to need an album.
