We had a really nice and relaxing time. The room was spacious and the king size bed was comfortable. The resort is like a B & B. Everthing was nice and clean. There was a sitting room with a TV and a refrigerator stocked with bottled water. Coffee available all day. We ordered a breakfast basket which was delivered on... More

My husband had purchased a 1 night weekday-only coupon on Living Social and surprised me on our second anniversary. We stayed in a Deluxe King Waterfront suite. We were looking forward to a quiet and private getaway - and that is exactly what we experienced with this trip. Oxford is serene and small, and we could instantly feel the connection... More

All the rooms are uniquely decorated so it is fun to stay in different ones. You used the adjectives friendly and peaceful and that is what we try to offer our guests every day. So... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this Inn. It's kind of a cross between a resort and a B & B---just 12 rooms, I think. We had a lovely room overlooking the water with our own screened porch. A breakfast basket arrived on the porch at a time we designated each morning. It included a couple pastries, yogurt, beverages, a couple pieces of... More

My husband and I traveling north after our daughter's wedding were fortunate enough to find this perfect paradise. Our plan was to stay the night but we were captured by the magic of the people, the inn and the area and stayed for the rest of our trip! We took advantage of the ferry, a quick walk away, and visited... More

Dear Catherine G, We remember you so well because you were so gracious about your impromptu stay at Sandaway. It was flattering that you kept extending and ended up 3 nights in our tiniest room, Cozy. Just goes to prove it is not about the room but the experience that Sandaway gives all guests. What we loved the most was... More

This was the most peaceful, beautiful, serene place we've ever been! It was like stepping back in time. All you heard were the waves, the wind, and the birds. The view from our downstairs room with a large screened porch was magical! White adirondak chairs sat under beautiful old trees looking out over Chesapeake Bay, while sailboats passed by. Another...

We booked the Sandaway for a last minute getaway for the 4th of July holiday weekend. It was fantastic. We stayed in a beach loft suite on the 3rd floor of the main house. It was a lovely suite with 2 rooms overlooking the river. (Warning: this is a private floor, but your bath is across the landing - that... More

Dear Andrea S, Thanks for your detailed review. You had our largest suite. I have had guests say they could live up there. The fireworks that can be seen from Sandaway's lawn is certainly unique and makes a lasting memory. Hurry back to Sandaway! Best, Wendy Gibson - Owner More

My husband and I wanted a quiet getaway with friends, and we booked 2 nights in king waterfronts at Sandaway. What a treat! Next time we will not even go into St. Michaels, which seems full of bustle compared to the quiet here. Beautiful lawns to the river with comfy chairs in addition to the private screened porch.

After putting off Fourth of July weekend plans, my boyfriend and I frantically searched for places within reasonable driving distance from Richmond to spend the long weekend just the two of us.

Five star in my opinion. A quiet area, but with nearby restaurants for lunches and dinners (it's a true B&B!) It's the little things that make the difference at this bed and breakfast. Like the two sitting rooms -one in a refurbished boathouse with a beautiful view of the water - stocked with free water, coffee, snacks, newspapers, books and... More

After a ghastly introduction to Oxford, Maryland, courtesy of The Robert Morris Inn, my husband and I found ourselves in sudden need of a room for the night; we'd checked in and checked out at Robert Morris inside of an hour.
