The location of the Sandaway with a fantastic lawn and nice seating on the Tred Avon River is a great place to go to relax. The room itself was nothing special, and if it didn't have the enclosed porch where we spent most of our time, would have been underwhelming. For a B&B, the breakfast was OK. It is served in a basket delivered to the room, and is ample. But for the price, one would expect something more authentic - perhaps some freshly baked items, and fresh juice rather than all prepackaged items. In deference to COVID-19, I accept that this is what is being served at this time, and the norm may be closer to my expectation. On option to have breakfast at the Robert Morris Inn a short walk away is nice - though again, based on price paid for B&B, the small discount given is not worth taking this option. The rooms were not serviced during our stay (understood and accepted as current policy), but were not stocked to account for this fact. We did get extra towels when requested, but didn't think to ask for extra toiletries, coffee, water. The staff is advised to stock rooms for multiple days stays since they are not currently servicing rooms. Oxford is a relaxing, quiet place for a getaway free from bustle, with nice eating options town and in the nearby towns of Trappe and Easton. (more a bit farther in St. Michael's ).

I decided to go to Sandaway Suites & Beach for some much needed R&R during the Covid -19 Pandemic. I chose this place because I love the Chesapeake Bay, but also the privacy of the beach. It did not disappoint. I lounged at the beach all day and merely had it to myself. I stayed in the Tuckaway Cottage. The Tuckaway was oh so quaint and it was exceptionally clean! I could see and smell the clean. I felt very safe here during this pandemic. I enjoyed the gigantic soaking tub and the breakfast at your door in the mornings, one of the amenties at the Sandaway. I have only one complaint, the room description said the Tuckaway has only a peek of the water, well it's a nice size peek. It would have been better if the windows were clean, so that you could view it clearly. All in all I enjoyed my stay...and I will definetly be returning to the Sandaway.

Absolute most relaxing spot!!!!! Service was impeccable!!!! The room was spotless!!!!! The view is breathtaking.....I could go on! My husband and I spent our second stay and enjoyed every minute. The Gibsons were very responsive when emailing to answer questions. The breakfast was delivered right on time and the staff were so sweet and kind!!! We went to the St Michaels winery during the day then checked in & walked down the road to have a DELICIOUS meal at Capsize right on the water & grabbed ice cream at the creamery. I woke up bright and early to watch the sunrise sky and took a walk by the beach, picked seashells, and then headed back to read on the screened in porch. I promise Sandaway will not disappoint!!! We are already deciding which month we will return in 2021.... and I can’t wait!!!

We absolutely loved our weekend getaway at Sandaway. The grounds are impeccably landscaped, lots of shade trees or sun, to enjoy the most gorgeous view of the water. Plenty of Adirondack chairs, tables and loungers. The rooms are older but decorated to match the history of this charming retreat, beds are comfortable, array of amenities are supplied and it is super quiet and relaxing. The owners are so nice and very accommodating. We cannot wait to return to this romantic spot. The view of the passing boats really is spectacular!

My husband and I escaped for a much needed mini vacation . The Sandaway was the perfect place to have a relaxing get away . We didn’t do much but that was the point . We sat out on the inn’s private yard under the trees and watched the boats and listened to the waves in the water. We took the ferry and rode the 8 miles to St. Michaels and back . Flat road but not much shade . We also enjoyed our breakfast basket delivered each morning. It was a great variety but maybe an English muffin , small bagel or croissant but be a little more enjoyable than the sweet danish . The room we had was large and very clean . It’s very dated in decor but has a comfortable bed . For me it checked the boxes of clean and comfortable . The food at Capsize was delicious as well as the Ice cream at the creamery next door to the restaurant . This is a very short walk . There are not many restaurants in Oxford but for a long weekend there were enough . All the meals we had were very good. If you want to rehab , recharge and reconnect Oxford is the town , Sandaway is the place .

We are so glad Sandaway met your needs for relaxing and recharging! Oxford's restaurants are technically within walking distance and they all offer great fare. Keeping our rooms clean and spotless is what makes our guests feel comfortable and safe. Loved your last two comments! Oxford is the town. Sandaway is the place. Thanks for sharing so others will also want to come. Safe travels, Wendy Gibson owner
