My husband and I cam here after an intense 2+ week road trip, and it was the perfect choice. Our room was beautiful--overlooking the Bay-- and well-appointed. We spent two relaxing evenings sitting by the water in relaxing Adirondack Chairs watching the sunset. In the morning we had a continental breakfast bushel basket delivered to our door and we returned... More

We had a beautiful view of the Tred Avon River. The grounds are lovely with huge trees, a big lawn with adirondack chairs, a boat house, and a pretty beach. And the sunset is truly spectacular. Everyone working at the Sandaway is friendy and helpful. Our room was so cozy and charming with a screened-in porch overlooking the lawn and... More

My husband and I had a wonderful 3days 2 nights stay in this small town, not much to do by relax by the water or take a nice walk along the lake. You are about 20 minutes from St. Michaels for some shopping, dinning and night life. It is a Bed and Breakfast!!

Our room was delightful, the water views and sunset spectacular. Privacy on our own porch to enjoy our breakfast basket, while enjoying a water view - the Sandaway is the perfect spot to kick back and relax. I am already looking forward to our next visit!

We came looking for peace and quiet, a weekend to get away from the hustle of city living, work and family obligations, We found that, to be certain, but we also found charm galore at Sandaway. We travelled to the Eastern Shore on Friday morning and spent most of the day shopping in St. Michaels; then we headed to Sandaway... More

This is a lovely property, but not providing a true breakfast for $299.00 per night is unacceptable. We will not return or recommend Sandaway unless real breakfasts are prepared and delivered. Inexcusable to call yourself a B & B with this scenario in force.
