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. The location was incredible and the view from our room was heavenly. We could have spent an entire week sitting on... More

I didn't even know where Oxford, Md was when I bought the voucher from Travelzoo for our two night stay at Sandaway. Two nights weren't enough we were lucky enough to book a third night. I can't say enough about the wonderful time we had. We went midweek and stayed in the Tuckaway Cottage. The cottage is perfect, it's quiet... More

Sandaway was the perfect place to get away from the rat race that city living can be. The staff were friendly, accomodating, and had great suggestions on restaurants and sites in the area. The Sandaway itself is BEAUTIFUL. The property itself is maintained really well, clean, and inviting. We stayed in one of the beach view rooms on the second... More

Dear jill_why, So pleased with all the nice things you had to say about Sandaway and the nearby towns. Yes, the Robert Morris Inn consistently has fresh ingredients and the presentation is always so appealing. Now, maybe you can be one of those guests that make Sandaway an annual visit.

Beautiful setting and wonderfully helpful staff. The Sandaway is a charming place in a charming town. We liked everything about it including the proximity to places like St. Michael's and Tilghman Island. If you have a boat to tag along, it's even better even if the crabs aren't running. Just be careful of the local ramp; it's not the easiest... More

We stayed in the Guest Suite, which is not a water view. We were originally disappointed about that, but it ended up being just perfect. The suite was very clean and very quiet. The whole area was very quiet. There are plenty of chairs by the water to sit and relax or read. There are two rooms with drinks and... More

Dear DeniseX755GV, We appreciate your review of Town View Suite. It is one of our newest suites that I did in a Contemporary Casual Theme. The breakfast basket, as advertised, also has yogurt, juice, and fruit. I don't know of any B&Bs that do room service to your door at the requested time by the guest. Hopefully we will see... More

It doesn't get any better than this. The place, scenery, people were so friendly and accommodating. The rooms were awesome and the staff and owners were a pure delight. The town was just the same with making you feel welcomed. Would definitely stay at the Sandaway again. Loved every minute..

This was my second time staying at Sandaway and it was perfect. They take extra time to do little things to make your stay comfortable.
