We stayed at Sandaway in the off season and loved every minute. Our room was lovely (grateful for the tv-free space!) with wide views over the lawn to the river, with sunset smack in the middle of the picture window. Comfy bed, soft linens, good shower in a large bathroom. We had the boathouse common room to ourselves in the... More

We found this place through a TravelZoo offer, and for $199 for two nights (plus local tax), it was spectacular. We had the place to ourselves, and the staff couldn't have been nicer. We enjoy the beach in the winter, so the chill was not a problem, but the wind whistling through the cracks made for a less-than-ideal night. Too... More

Visited Sandaway Thanksgiving weekend. Stayed in 3rd floor room with water view. Furnishings were old and needed updating. Antiques are fine, but furnishings were a mishmash and not in good condition. Windows were small and made it difficult to view water. Inn keepers not friendly and seemed annoyed to have to explain to us where our room was and didn't... More

Dear leeann144, We are so sorry Sandaway did not meet your expectations! The Beach View Loft Suite does have its own private hallway, not shared with other rooms. It includes the entire front third floor area and is like a small penthouse, so it does not have the same configuration as a standard hotel room. All other rooms have a... More

The Sandaway closes over the winter months, and we were there just a few weeks before that happened. It was chilly, windy, and there was a spattering of rain off and on --- and it made for a perfect stay. The room was was well heated and insulated, even with a large picture window over the bay. The room was... More

Originally we were in the room on the third floor, very steep stairs and not a really good view, but more room in bathroom and sitting area, and you have your own tv and fridge. So they then showed us a smaller room on the 2nd floor which had a screened in porch that overlooked the bay, beautiful. The room... More

Dear JoAnn C, We are glad you had a relaxing getaway. It was good timing I was in the office when you requested a waterfront room. The Beach View King rooms are in the original section of the lodge, so there are limitations to the size of the bathrooms we had to work around. You decided to go with the... More

I'm sorry I'm writing this review so late. My boyfriend and I purchased a living social coupon to stay at this bed and breakfast. We'd always wanted to try out a bed and breakfast and Sandaway provided us with an amazingly wonderful experience. We arrived Oct. 13, 2014 and stayed for 2 nights. Our room was the second floor suite... More

The Sandaway is a beautiful place to get away. You are right by the water. They have Adriondack Chairs that you can sit on and relax looking out at the water. It is very peaceful and relaxing. We were located on the third floor. This can be very difficult to navigate especially the final flight of steps. The breakfast is... More

Absolutely loved the property,room (especially the view ) and staff. We had a corner waterfront room on the second floor with a screened in sizable porch that overlooked the river.

Restaurants and B&B's are about experiences. Included in that are people, the one(s) your with and the staff and owner, the location, the facility and in the case of a getaway, nice weather usually helps (unless you want to be snowed in!).

Thank you again Wendy for a great weekend at the Sandaway. Room 108 was clean, comfortable, accommodating and had the most amazing view of the water.
