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

Second time at Sandaway for a two day getaway. Waterfront location in Oxford, MD. Expansive view of the river, plenty of chairs on the grass to enjoy the view with your favorite beverage. Great place to walk along the shoreline...several marinas nearby along with a great public park on the water. You can walk to two of the top restaurants... More

My Wife and just just finished a stay at this great B&B. It is our third year in a row and we can't wait to return next year. If you want a couple of days away from it all, but close enough to high quality dining and quaint shopping, the Sandaway is your destination. We prefer to kayak and sit... More

My husband and I had never been to Oxford, but when a special deal was offered on Living Social, we decided it was a good time to check it out. I cannot say enough good things about this inn.
