The Inn at Perry Cabin, a luxurious St. Michaels hotel where parts of the movie "Wedding Crashers" were filmed, will be sold to a private real estate firm for $39.7 million. The purchase by real estate magnate Richard Cohen's CAP Acquisitions LLC is expected to close in the next few weeks, according to real estate services firm Savills Hospitality Group, which advised on the deal. The seller, Orient-Express Hotels Ltd., will remain as manager under a 10-year agreement. Marc Magazine, executive managing director of Savills Hospitality, said his firm approached London-based Orient-Express at the end of last summer about selling the property because Cohen, the president of CAP Acquisitions, was interested in expanding his hotel holdings.

We were lucky; our drive into St. Michaels was, somehow, sans traffic, despite the fact that it was Friday evening and we surely were not alone in our desire to escape the city for a relaxing getaway on the Eastern Shore. As we drove through the downtown, stopping to let families cross the street for a dinner cracking shellfish at the Crab Claw, we looked for the turnoff for the Inn at Perry Cabin, our destination for the weekend. Beneath an umbrella of large linden trees lining the driveway, we eagerly anticipated seeing the results of the inn's four-month, $2.7 million renovation.

One comment written in the Inn at Perry Cabin's guest book announced that the Inn was "better than Disneyworld!" Of course. It's Ashleyworld.Owned by a British nobleman -- Sir Bernard Ashley, co-founder of the Laura Ashley empire -- it's a place where everything has been perfectly calibrated to comfort and to enchant. Courteous staffers with English accents will usher you into a charming parlor with a water view and cushy feather-stuffed sofas. They will take your cocktail order and bring you some sinful little hors d'ouevre to nibble on, and generally behave as if you were a real, well, guest, instead of some bridge-and-tunnel tourist from the Western Shore.

Sleep-overs are formative in the friendships of young girls. Bonds of a lifetime are formed spending sweet, sacred nights talking behind the closed door of a friend's bedroom.So it was with Connie Reynolds, Nancy Lomneth and me, and we still are sleeping over 35 years later.It is not as it was when we were kids, spending so much time at one another's houses that we became co-daughters to one another's mothers. Our sleep-overs are sometimes years apart because we live miles apart: Nancy in Seattle, Connie in upstate New York and I in Annapolis.

Now is the time. Early fall is when the pleasures peak in Talbot and Dorchester counties. That's when these Eastern Shore towns stop being detours along the way to the shore and turn into full-fledged destinations. There are practical advantages to visiting St. Michaels, Easton and Cambridge after Labor Day. Hotel rates plunge, beach traffic is a nonissue and the kids are, as they say, back in school. There are even a few reasons to put off an Eastern Shore trip as late into fall as you can. Migrating wildfowl begin to arrive here in late October.

ST. MICHAELS - Mornings, Marcella Babes would put on her crisply starched uniform and bike five blocks to wash sheets at a luxury inn. Evenings, she would disappear down a muddy road to a tiny home that had no plumbing or running water. Hidden behind the boutiques, chic eateries and waterfront resort that make up the affluent center of St. Michaels is the street where Babes lives. The two-block African-American community, called Chester Park, was once all but forgotten. Tar-paper shacks lined the dirt road.

A fine-dining rule lies among the many life lessons doled out on reruns of "The Andy Griffith Show." Ever see the episode when Andy and Barney travel to the big city on business and stay in a nice hotel? In the dining room, a waiter hands them a menu mostly in French. After giving it a look, a confident Andy simply tells the waiter, "I'd like a steak, a baked potato and green beans." Barney, however, pretends to know what he's doing when he reads off the names of an appetizer and entrM-ie from the menu.

Jeannier'sJeannier's, Broadview Apartments, 105 W. 39th St., 889-3303. Jeannier's isn't the best restaurant in town, though it's very good. It certainly isn't the trendiest -- far from it. But it gets my vote for being among the warmest and most comfortable. You can sit back here without feeling like a slouch. In addition, the food -- French -- is beautifully presented and full of interesting flavors. The menu is not large, but the selection is provocative: seafood casserole baked with saffron rice ($14.

Some Eastern Shore towns may close up for the winter, but not St. Michaels. And certainly not the luxurious Inn at Perry Cabin. Just try getting a last-minute dinner reservation there on a Saturday night, even in February.The Inn at Perry Cabin is one of a group of hotels owned by Sir Bernard Ashley and his wife, Laura. That's why it's decorated from tip to toe with those tiny floral prints Laura Ashley is famous for.Most of us can't afford to stay there except for a very special occasion.

ST. MICHAELS -- It took a year to get Marcella Babes a new house -- one with a toilet, siding and a roof that doesn't leak. But after a lifetime of poverty lived on the edge of this well-to-do tourist town, Babes knows she won't be the last to benefit from a push to eliminate substandard housing in Talbot County.State and local officials, with volunteers who are leading the effort, gathered yesterday in the dilapidated Chester Park neighborhood that lies blocks from upscale boutiques and restaurants, to celebrate the completion of a rebuilt home for Babes and her invalid husband, Charles.
