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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

Dear ramgil, It is wonderful to learn your stay was beyond your expectations. Amazing waterfront views is what many of our rooms feature. I do hope to see you again. We have seen some very high tides this September, but normally there is a larger sandy beach area. Thank you for your review. Safe travels, Ben Gibson - Innkeeper More

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... More

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.

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... More

Dear liveoak33, Thanks for this review. Right after you left we updated the chairs in there with leather swivel. Really makes it improved now. We think you will like it if you come again in that room. Best, Wendy Gibson - owner More

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... More

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... More

Dear ElizabethTraveler, Glad you liked "high up" 303 ( Water View Loft Jr. Suite)! There are amazing views from up there. Of course you have to climb those stairs first. Ben put cable tv and a mini fridge in the suite last year. Hope to see you for a 2 night stay next time. Thank you, Wendy Gibson - owner More

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... More
