Sandaway Waterfront Lodging Suites and Beach

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 26, 2013

The view was fantastic, we really enjoyed drinking wine in the Adirondack chairs and just relaxing. The room was clean, and had a full kitchen and living space. The breakfast basket served our needs perfect. A great place to enjoy peace and quiet, great weekend getaway and even has rooms that do not require a two night minimum.

Room Tip: Although it did not feature a water view, we enjoyed the Gibson Guest House with full kitchen and up...

Thanks for the great news that we exceeded all your expectations! Maybe next time you can try a waterfront room with a private porch. It would be nice to have you all back.

Safe travels,

My husband and I have (literally), just left the resort, and want to turn back. We came for my husband's birthday. It was beautiful! We arrived late one evening, at the resort, and, our keys and information were waiting for us in the office. Along with some wonderful suggestions for places to eat. :-)
In the morning, they have an option for a light fare breakfast basket or you can go to one of the local restaurants for a hot meal. ( you receive a discount for eating there.) The first morning, we chose to have the basket. There were warm pastries, yogurts, cookies, juice, a pot of coffee, with cream and sugar, granola bars, raisins, etc. We had plenty to eat! We then decided to venture out to the private beach! It was very cool that day, which made it hard to stay out there, but, that had nothing to do with the resort. It's just the weather. So, we decided to walk around the little, quaint town of Oxford. We stopped for lunch...and headed back to our little cottage. The next day, we woke up early, because it was a much warmer day! We spent the the morning on the beach, then, went to breakfast. We had an option to stay a bit longer, by the gracious invitation of the innkeeper, Mr. Ben Gibson, ( Even though, we were to check out at 11am), but, we were headed to another town. We also had a lovely talk with Mr. Gibson and Mrs. Serita ( I hope I spelled it right), about PA sports teams! Lol! We will DEFINITELY be back! We HIGHLY recommend it.

Million dollar view sitting on the lawn watching the bay. Secluded in a sleepy town away from traffic and other noise. If you want a relaxing weekend you will not go wrong here. Close enough to Easton and St Michaels to a meal there. Make sure you enjoy the sunset on the bay

Room Tip: Tuckaway cottage offers an tub for 2 but if you are claustrophobic you might not like the stall show...

Spent several days here in Oxford, MD. It's a very quiet town and the folks are very friendly. There are a couple of decent restaurants and a few small shops, but not much else. Perfect if you want a peaceful few days in a beautiful place.

The Sandaway facility and staff are first class and made our stay a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: We found out about this place through Groupon

This B&B has the perfect spot for relaxing, reading and unwinding while soaking up the beauty of the Eastern Shore. We were able to upgrade our voucher for a waterfront room with a screen porch and were so glad we did. The privacy allotted and the comfort provided were ideal!

Room Tip: The waterfront first floor rooms are best for relaxing!

My wife and I took a 2-day getaway. We stayed in the main building in a room with a view of the Tred Avon River. The view was amazing with the sail boats and other boats coming and going on the river. We were a few steps from the large lawn area where relaxing chairs await. Every thing in Oxford is in walking distance from the Sandaway. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated and the Breakfast Baskets are wonderful. The staff is very helpful and pleasant to interact with. Coffee, tea, water and other snacks are available in the main lodge and boat house at all times. I highly recommend this B@B for anyone looking for relaxation. We had awesome time and will visit again.

My husband and I took a 2-day getaway. We stayed in the Tuckaway Cottage - it was fantastic. The room was impeccably clean, had everything we needed, it was cute and comfortable. We were steps from the lawn overlooking the water, as well as the main lodge where we could get ice, bottled water, coffee/tea, and light snacks. The breakfast basket (delivered to the room) was fun. They even had corkscrews and wine glasses available to use.
Granted, there was no fitness center, swimming pool, or "night ilfe," but that's not why we were there. We took the ferry to St. Michaels and enjoyed shopping, dining, and activities there. Then, came "home" to the cottage.
We had a Travelzoo coupon, the regular price was probably more than we would've wanted to spend. But, it was just what we wanted!
