Sandaway is a lovely historic building in an idyllic waterfront setting in the towm of Oxford, which couldn't be any more charming. However, the hotel itself lacked the amenities we have come to expect at this price point. No robes, for example, even though in the large third floor suite where we stayed, a hall separates the bedroom and sitting...

Sandaway, Owner at Sandaway Waterfront Lodging Suites and Beach, responded to this review

Dear Kat122912, Thanks so much for taking the time to write. You did have our largest suite with beach views, cable tv, mini fridge, and a large separate sitting room. The private hallway to your bath is because of the configuration of the restored Victorian mansion. I do hope you took advantage of the amenities we did provide including breakfast...

We stayed at Sandaway in the off season and loved every minute. Our room was lovely (grateful for the tv-free space!) with wide views over the lawn to the river, with sunset smack in the middle of the picture window. Comfy bed, soft linens, good shower in a large bathroom. We had the boathouse common room to ourselves in the...

Dear TheHillestads, Thanks so much for all the positive feedback! Makes us want to keep going. Ha! We do get great satisfaction when our guests are so happy and maybe sometimes we even exceed expectations with the views for sure. Nothing like seeing it in person as pictures can't capture the natural beauty of our location. This was a big...

We found this place through a TravelZoo offer, and for $199 for two nights (plus local tax), it was spectacular. We had the place to ourselves, and the staff couldn't have been nicer. We enjoy the beach in the winter, so the chill was not a problem, but the wind whistling through the cracks made for a less-than-ideal night. Too...

Visited Sandaway Thanksgiving weekend. Stayed in 3rd floor room with water view. Furnishings were old and needed updating. Antiques are fine, but furnishings were a mishmash and not in good condition. Windows were small and made it difficult to view water. Inn keepers not friendly and seemed annoyed to have to explain to us where our room was and didn't...

Dear leeann144, We are so sorry Sandaway did not meet your expectations! The Beach View Loft Suite does have its own private hallway, not shared with other rooms. It includes the entire front third floor area and is like a small penthouse, so it does not have the same configuration as a standard hotel room. All other rooms have a...

The Sandaway closes over the winter months, and we were there just a few weeks before that happened. It was chilly, windy, and there was a spattering of rain off and on --- and it made for a perfect stay. The room was was well heated and insulated, even with a large picture window over the bay. The room was...

Originally we were in the room on the third floor, very steep stairs and not a really good view, but more room in bathroom and sitting area, and you have your own tv and fridge.

Dear JoAnn C, We are glad you had a relaxing getaway. It was good timing I was in the office when you requested a waterfront room. The Beach View King rooms are in the original section of the lodge, so there are limitations to the size of the bathrooms we had to work around. You decided to go with the...

I'm sorry I'm writing this review so late. My boyfriend and I purchased a living social coupon to stay at this bed and breakfast.

The Sandaway is a beautiful place to get away. You are right by the water. They have Adriondack Chairs that you can sit on and relax looking out at the water. It is very peaceful and relaxing. We were located on the third floor. This can be very difficult to navigate especially the final flight of steps. The breakfast is...

Absolutely loved the property,room (especially the view ) and staff. We had a corner waterfront room on the second floor with a screened in sizable porch that overlooked the river.

Restaurants and B&B's are about experiences. Included in that are people, the one(s) your with and the staff and owner, the location, the facility and in the case of a getaway, nice weather usually helps (unless you want to be snowed in!).
