We were very pleased with all aspects of our stay at Sandaway. We were met by a pretty young lady who was helpful and informative. Our room was spacious and clean, and had a beautiful view of the Chesapeake. We spent time relaxing in chairs by the water's edge under the shade of huge trees. The beauty was exceptional. It...

We saw an offer on Social Living for Sandaway B&B. We went for two nights and were amazed by the view of the Chesapeake Bay from the B&B. It was so relaxing sitting and just watching the sailboats go by. They would delivered our breakfast in a basket at our screen in porch every morning. Also, they had a boathouse... More

I cannot say enough about Sandaway. Exceptional, authentic, gracious and serene are words that come to mind immediately. Ben and Wendy, the Innkeeper and Owner, treat their guests with attentive care and a level of respect that shows in their attitudes, the serenity of the grounds, their obvious love and appreciation of the property. I have visited several times, and... More

High Summer on the Bay can be steamy, sweaty and best spent behind screens, and in air conditioned rooms. The water can grow still, sails sag and everyone can be found praying for Fall. My weekend at Sandaway on the tailing edge of July 2015 was as if it was the second week of September. Saturday was spent in a... More

As dedicated Select Registry B&B travelers, Sandaway was definitely less than what we expected when we came for a visit in June 2015. From the tacky labels (about their ant problem, asking for house keeping gratuity, etc.) all over the mirror and walls to the artificial hanging flowers on the porch, we felt as though Sandaway was attempting to nickel...

The pic on the internet shows sandy beaches. The place is called "Sandaway". Don't expect anything but rocky beaches. The lady (wife, owner) that checked us in was not just unpleasant she was discourteous and inattentive We had a "deluxe, waterfront" and the view was really beautiful. It is the first B & B we have visited that had more... More

Dear Charles B, So glad you enjoyed, Sandaway, the breakfast basket, town and car ferry. Our beach is quite sandy depending on the tides. At very low tide is have lots of sand.

My husband and I stayed at Sandaway for the Eagleman Triathlon (June 12-15). It was about 20 minutes from the race, and I found it to be the perfect getaway.
