Sandaway is an unusual place: not glitzy, even somewhat old-fashioned, but it's a perfect place to relax completely. We had a first floor suite and a private, screened porch. The room was gracious and comfortable and the porch was super. Their breakfast is somewhat odd: they deliver a large basket at the time you request, to your porch (without knocking,... More

Dear amanda483, Sounds like an accurate description. Many of our guests do just as you suggested. When guests stay multiple mornings they often include the Robert Morris Inn in their breakfast itinerary to add variety during their stay. I'm glad you mentioned the tree, its a spectacular view standing underneath. I've fallen in love with its charm as well. Overall,... More

We're wrapping up a four day stay here and it's been very nice. Facility has a main house with suites, and several cottages that either have two suites or one.

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful B&B a few weeks ago. Our weather was perfect! This was our first time and we will definitely be returning. The Inn is beautiful. Right on the water -- spectacular views. We stayed in the separate rooms that I guess you could call a duplex. We were on the second floor and... More

First, I must say the weather was seductive and that may heavily influence my review; a constant embracing breeze, low humidity, mid-80's, sunshine and transparent sails. Oxford is a tiny community that is not a tourist trap. It has a residential feel and you immediately feel welcome. The Sandaway is the perfect location on the water, big shade trees and... More

Just got back from three wonderful days relaxing at Sandaway and I am already planning to go back. The stress is gone. Our room was comfortable. The view of the water from our screen porch and the large lawn on the riverside made it feel like a natural spa. recommend irt highly.

Sandaway has taken a spot on our list of best getaways ever. We stayed in the Tuckaway Cottage, which was very private and comfortable. Little things as others mentioned, like binoculars, flashlights, little snacks in the library along with coffee and tea and wine glasses, snacks and bottles of waters in the little waterside building, lots of chairs by the...

Went for our honeymoon -- Sandaway is a lovely, quaint, romantic place, and very comfortable. Unless you expect your Bed & Breakfast to actually include breakfast! They have neither a kitchen nor a dining room. They bring a basket of packaged snack food and leave it at your door -- without knocking, so you don't even know it's been delivered!!... More

Dear Judi R, Tuckaway is one of my favorite suites because it is so private. We are glad you liked it and your walks around town and the property. The wall paper is in keeping with the cottage feel for that bedroom. It is always personal choice about those things. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again.... More
