"Romantic Getaway with a view"
Went here for a one night romantic getaway with my Fiance. The place is like a converted mansion. Was greeted at the door by the innkeeper. Nice guy, offered a room upgrade for only $40 since I was staying in the small room they have, called the Cozy queen. It was a small room, nicely decorated with a claw foot bath tub. The place is right on the bay. […] My fiance and I enjoyed watching the sunset on the lawn chairs. In the morning, they brought a breakfast basket to our doorstep with coffee, some coffee cakes, cinnamon buns, yogurt, etc. It was so nice. I would definitely stay here again. Super quiet, low key, great place to go and get away from it all. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This is a delightful little inn on a river right off the Chesapeake Bay. The setting is picture perfect for relaxing and resting. Not much of a nightlife but that goes along with the tranquil part. The inn is well maintained with a nice selections of coffees and snacks. Bring a book or grab one from the library and sit in one of the beach chairs and […] listen to the waves or sit in a hanging chair on the back porch and listen to a warbler.

"Great Couples Getaway"
My wife and I were excited to get away from the 3 kids for a romantic one-night getaway. We arrived and were offered a room upgrade at check-in for a nominal fee. The room was fabulous (River, Deluxe, 2nd Fl) with amazing views of the river even while lying in bed! Binoculars are even provided in the room to view waterfowl on the river. It was a really […] windy night and we heard some banging during the wee hours, but the staff were responsive and even came out at 1 a.m. to secure rocking chairs in the adjacent unoccupied rooms. They offered to move us to another room, and when we declined, they waived the upgrade fee. Breakfast was delivered at 9 a.m. as promised and was yummy. Aside from the room, other amenities including the boat house and the library/pantry in the main house were also nice. The hotel is a short walk to the Robert Morris Inn, where we enjoyed a fabulous dinner featuring local foods. We will definitely be back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"a sea glass collectors dream"
I needed a little rest and relaxation and Sandaway was the perfect spot. the rolling lawn down to the beach was dotted with white Adirondak chairs with a beautiful view of the water. i brought a book with me but only read a few pages as I spent most of the time gazing out at the peaceful view! The breakfast basket provided at my doorstep the next morning […] was filled with goodies and a hot pot of coffee. remember to let them know if you are not a coffee drinker! There is a 24 hour cozy library just off the entryway which has snacks and beverages at no cost. The beach offered a fun collecting spree of sea glass. I actually found several rare pieces of hand blown glass! I will definitely return next fall. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A great place to spend a few days to relax"
The best mini-vacation we've ever had. We enjoyed our stay & hope to come back soon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Sandaway is in a quiet little town. You are away from heavy traffic and crowds. Didn't see any shops and there was the Morris Inn and Salter Tavern on the corner we dined for dinner and breakfast. Room was victorian decor and spacious. We requested a room with a view of the water. There are no tvs or internet service in the rooms. The do have a community […] room with a tv and internet access. This a a good place to go if you want to" get away from it all". We sat by the water and enjoyed wine and beer and the view. The only negative when we were sitting outside was the mosquitos. We returned to our room and enjoyed the view from our window. We've never stayed in a bed & breakfast so I'm not sure if the price we paid was good. We only stayed one night for our 25th Anniversary and I feel that we paid a little too much. Overall it was a perfect place to enjoyed a quiet evening with my husband.

"Location, Location, Location"

We had a very relaxing stay. The room was a second floor king deluxe and worth the upgrade. The soaking tub is a one person tub. No refrigerator in the room, so it was ice in the trash can for the wine & beer. The mattress was very soft, which might be an issue for those with back problems. There were empty wine and water bottles still in the room when we arrived. The breakfast basket was "interesting." The first day we had one yogurt and one rice pudding, one orange juice and one green tea with honey along with the coffee and pastries.The 8:30 delivery was on time, but late for us. Luckily they provide in room coffee. I spoke to the front desk and requested and received a different mix for the second day. I also found out that they have earlier delivery options that we're not presented to us when we checked in. The view was tremendous. The ability to take our breakfast to waterside was great. We had a very enjoyable stay.
"Lovely respite to get away from the rat race of DC"
I love this place. We have come here three times and each time we are so amazed at how lovely it is and how refreshed we feel when we leave. The views are spectacular from most rooms. Oxford is a quaint, pretty town on the Tres Avon river. This time I split the two-day stay with a good friend the first night and my husband the second night (who was racing over in the Annapolis to Oxford race). My friend and I got up early to take photos, a couple I have added to this review.
"Beautiful and Relaxing"
09/12/14 devog14 Philadelphia
We got a deal for the Sandaway through Living Social so we went on a Tuesday through Thursday. The Sandaway is located in the sleepy little town of Oxford, MD, but sleepy in this case is wonderfully relaxing. The Inn sits on the Tred Avon River, but you feel like you are on the bay it's such a large body of water. There are adirondak chairs around the lawn so you can sit and enjoy the water. We had room 108, a second floor room with king sized bed and huge bathroom with clawfoot tub. The bathroom is wonderful, but the room itself was simple. The best part was the screened porch where we spend most of our time when we were in our room, windows open, enjoying an amazing breeze. One morning we enjoyed the breakfast basket they offer as part of your room rate. The basket was filled with goodies including yogurt, pastries, coffee, tea, fruit and more. The second morning we opted to have breakfast at the Robert Morris Inn, less than a block away with a 15% discount as Sandaway guests. There is always coffee, tea, water and soft drinks available to guests in the common sitting room and beach house which is a generous amenity. The rooms have no TV's (this was one of the best parts!) but the common areas have TV's for guests to enjoy if they want. I would definitely suggest the Sandaway for a relaxing and romantic getaway.
"Relaxing, beautiful experience"
09/12/14 ramgil New Jersey
This was our first trip to Sandaway Waterfront Lodging. It was well beyond our expectations. It was quite, relaxing and with the views of the Chesapeake Bay from our porch just amazing. The town of Oxford was also very nice. It was not very commercial. It was very lay back, with a handful of restaurants and places to stay. If you are looking for a buzz this is not the place for you. Not a great swimming place but I am not sure why. Beach very small with rocks and shells.

Ben and the staff were amazingly helpful and accommodating when we made a last minute reservation for Labor Day weekend. The location on the water is peaceful and breezy. Binoculars in the room are a nice touch as there is lots of birding and wildlife activity to be seen from the lawn. Oxford is a quiet historic town, very different from its neighbors Easton or St. Michaels. Sandaways does not have phones or TVs in the rooms,which encourages the feeling of a peaceful restful escape. They do have WiFi and cell service if you need it. Food at the Robert Morris Inn was great, and I almost wished for a rainy day to spend more time and money at Mystery Loves Company a tiny packed to the ceiling mostly mystery book store in town. Can't wait to return.

My husband surprised me with a night at Sandaway. We stayed in the crystal room which was lovely. We both have hectic careers and need some time to relax. The beautiful lawn with the chairs by the water is just serenity at its best. We have been back for a night and look forward to staying again soon.
"What a hidden jewel!"
08/28/14 liveoak33 Beaufort, SC
This little out of the way inn is a jewel. We loved the peace and quiet. Oxford is a charming little town. Not much to do there which is good as it made us relax and enjoy our time there. The lawn is magnificent and we enjoyed it morning and evening. Our room (106) was really a cottage. The furnishings were a bit dated, but we loved the space. The innkeeper has put alot of thought into making guests comfortable with having snacks, coffee, tea, etc. available. We will return to Sandaway.
08/27/14 Peggy T Washington, DC
It was the perfect getaway. Oxford is one of our favorite small towns right on the water. Great for biking to St. Michaels, and eating crabs. Inn is in a fabulous location right on the water very near the ferry. Beautiful large lawn with adirondeck chairs overlooking the water. Amazing sunsets. Ben upgraded our room to a lovely, freshly decorated suite. Very clean and quiet. Highly recommend
"Can't wait to return"
08/26/14 ElizabethTraveler Valley Cottage, New York
We loved our stay at the Sandaway. We opted for room 303 - the 3rd floor loft. It was our only choice for a one-night stay and we were not disappointed. This place is very charming. The room was perfectly sized with a king bed, tv, and sitting area. The bathroom was spacious and had an interesting layout. I originally wanted a room with a porch or balcony when we booked it, but that wasn't available and we didn't need it. This room was also nice and cold for us - a feat for the top floor of an old house!! There's plenty of shared porch spaces in the main house and the spacious lawn speaks for itself. We experienced friendly and reliable service here, and you can get coffee at any time in the library of the main house. There were lots of things we didn't have time to enjoy with a one-night stay, so we'll be back! We had a delicious dinner at the Robert Morris Inn and enjoyed our breakfast basket - delivered right on time. Stay here! Centennial houses are so interesting...
"Hidden Treasure on the Bay"
08/25/14 TRAVELINANTIE NEW YORK
We just returned from four glorious days of relaxation at the Sandaway. We enjoyed the privacy of our own little "cottage", a converted carriage house, hidden by beautiful weeping trees. We did have a partial view of the water, but we were still able to observe and enjoy the beautiful sunsets from the window. The evenings would find us strolling to the water to enjoy a glass of wine while sitting in one of the available Adirondack chairs overlooking the river. Snacks and beverages are available to you throughout the day, and the delivered breakfast basket is a welcome treat if you like to laze around before starting the day. Although comments regarding the breakfast were described as modest, we found it to be more than enough and very much on the nutritious side, offering yogurt, fruit juices, fresh fruit, green tea as well as warm Danish and a carafe of coffee. All delicious. A charming touch! The Oxford Bellevue ferry is minutes and will take you across the water where you can drive to St. Michaels. Another quiet town, but more touristy compared to Oxford. The Robert Morris restaurant is also within walking distance.. The town is quaint, and quiet. Perfect if this is your idea of a relaxing summer get away.
