We booked this from a Living Social deal. We had a deluxe waterfront king suite. The property is directly on the bay with lovely grounds, Adirondack chairs, small beach and loung chairs. The private beach is small, but just enough. I found about 10 pieces of sea glass. There is also a beautiful 100+ year old tree on the property.... More

Dear boogdie, Thanks for letting us know most things were amazing. You did great finding that much sea glass. We had a very strong thunderstorm recently and that must have helped bring in some more sea glass with the waves. I am glad you really enjoyed the amenities Sandaway has to offer. Sandaway has a very modern cooling system that... More

My boyfriend and I spent the weekend celebrating our anniversary at the inn. It was absolutely beautiful. The scenery was breathtaking. We stayed in the beach suite which is a loft on the third floor. The suite includes a separate living room type area, a private bathroom and a private screened in porch. My only complaint is the screened in... More

This family run b&b is charming with a great garden overlooking the water. We stayed at a 1 bedroom plus kitchen apartment above a house at the end if the property. It had been renovated probably lately and was very cute and quiet although without any view. But it was not a surprise and we spent our days outside visiting.... More

We have just returned home from a 3 night stay at Sandaway Waterfront Lodging. My husband and I REALLY needed peace and quiet to recharge our batteries and Sandaway was the perfect choice for a relaxing, pampered weekend. In 31 years of vacationing we have never returned home feeling quite so relaxed...even when staying at other Chesapeake waterfront resorts! While... More

I purchased a Living Social deal for a getaway at the Sandaway and it was absolutely perfect.

Stayed at the Sandaway a couple times and it is one of my favorite places. sitting in the andironacks out front watching the boats go by. All the rooms offer some something special and unique. the Lodge owners are super friendly as well as the staff. I highly recommend a trip to this location!

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....
