Swanendele Inn Suites
Swanendele Inn boasts two luxury suites named after the pioneers who played important roles in the development and history of St. Mary’s, MD. In 1639, the Brent’s, linear descendants of William the Conqueror, were granted the area on the Chesapeake south of St. Jerome’s Creek, where Swanendele Inn now stands. However, a deed was never registered due to political turmoil.
Lord Leonard Calvert, brother of Lord Baltimore, arrived at St. Mary’s on the Dove in 1634. He was named by his brother as the first governor of St. Mary’s colony and was granted the nearby Trinity Manor in 1634. He made Margaret Brent his legal representative and executor of his estate and named her Acting Governor. She is referred to as “the first suffragette” as she was the first woman to demand a vote in the Maryland Assembly.
The Margaret & Giles Brent Suite, the Lord Calvert Suite and the Margaret Brent Suite are spacious and airy with private decks, waterfront views, natural stone (gas) fireplaces, and ceiling fans. Each suite features huge bathrooms with two-person jacuzzi, built-in champagne bucket, shower, separate toilet, and wet bar. Bathroom finishes are natural stone/marble/granite, European ceramic and oak.
