Gorgeous scenic views with a lovely breeze even on the hottest days! So many wonderful things to say about this home away from home experience. Our family enjoyed the Gibson’s thoughtful hospitality for 4 days and will return for another round next year. Covid safe measures were in place and up to the high standards of our family which includes a frontline physician. The town of Oxford is utterly lovely and is probably one of the “chillest” towns in America. If your goal is to relax and get away from the grind this is your spot! But, please keep it a secret among only the nicest of kindest folks because the Gibson’s deserve only the best for their labor of love efforts in making Sandaway a lovely one of a kind vacation experience for our family.
If you're looking for a place to sit by the water and take in all the relaxing, peaceful atmosphere, then this is the right place to be. We stayed two nights in one of the smaller, but very comfortable, units but really spent more waking hours sitting by the shore of the Tred-Avon River watching the boats, waterfowl, and the river. Just an absolute delight. COVID kept us from interacting with the innkeepers and staff but I did have a very brief conversation with Ken Gibson while I was packing the car to leave and he seems like a very personable gentleman. My wife and I are looking forward to our next visit and hoping to stay longer.
Wonderful spot on the Tred Avon. Comfortable accommodations, friendly owners, beautiful access on the front lawn to the beach and Tred Avon River and tasty dining options just steps away. I will return. Highly recommended.
If you are looking for a place to kick back and relax, there is no better place than the Sandaway and Oxford, MD. The Sandaway is idyllic - the extensive lawn fronts the Tred Avon river, and it’s dotted with pairs of Adirondack chairs under beautiful, huge trees. We’ve been going to the Sandaway for over 20 years and we are still magnetically pulled to the chairs to read, watch the boats out on the river, look at the stars. We launch our kayaks right off the lawn and go for great explores. The town is delightful and everything can be reached on foot or bike, so we never move our car the whole time we’re there. Nothing like the hustle and bustle of St. Michael’s! The ferry in Oxford is not to be missed, either. The Sandaway rooms are clean, comfortable, simple, and private and many have wonderful porches that overlook the river, complete with rocking chairs. Breakfast baskets have been curtailed for Covid, but there are arrival snacks and coffee set ups for every day. This is not a fancy hotel nor a B&B, but if you want to get away and have some downtime, there’s no better place. Take the time to ride the ferry and to walk and (slowly) bike around Oxford, but be sure to save plenty of time to just BE at the Sandaway. Each time we’re there we never want to leave.…
My husband and I spent two nights at this gorgeous inn. Our room was clean and comfortable with all the amenities. The owners were available on premises when needed; very friendly. You can sit on a private porch or out on the lawn and watch the waves and sunset over the Bay. We walked to dinner at the Robert Morris Inn, a colonial era tavern. Great seafood at the several nearby restaurants. It's a great area for relaxing, biking, walking, jogging, boating, or just watching the Bay. A perfect D.C. getaway.
