We had a room on the first floor (no porch which I would have opted for on my next visit). Had a great view of the river from the bay window and we could walk right out our back door to the expansive lawn stretching down to the water where adirondak chairs & a "boat house" with complimentary water &...

What a gem of a place to getaway and relax. The minute you enter the property, the predominant sound is the gentle lapping of water on the shore. Entering the office, you are greeted by a thoughtful, kind, innkeeper, determined to ensure the most comfortable stay possible. We stayed in the Choptank room, with a lovely view of the river....

The view from my chair at the lodge is what Sandaway is all about. My husband and I needed rest and beauty for a few days away and we found it here. Oxford Maryland is less than 2 hours from Washington. Sandaway offers spacious and carefully maintained rooms with porches and large lawn on the water front. Kayaks and bicycles... More

Brochure doesn't lie. It's even more beautiful in person. I haven't even checked out yet and wish I didn't have to. Sit on one of many porches or adirondack chairs and listen to the water lapping the shore, birds chirping and you will think you stepped back in time. Delicious breakfast basket delivered right on time outside your door. Yum!... More

We had the Carriage Town View room and it was very well appointed. It had a full kitchen and every amenity needed for a fantastic stay. The view at sunset from the grounds was just perfect. Great place to relax with a glass of wine and enjoy the beauty of the area.

We had the pleasure of staying at the establishment. The house was amazing and the staff were impeccable. The only thing that wasn't up to our standards was the bed itself. It was extremely hard.
