“quaint and romantic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

Cutest place ever. Everything from vintage pieces of furniture to the cozy fireplace. Loved waking up to see the local Oystermen a few hundred yards from our porch. The breakfast basket was delicious with a wide variety of fruits, granola and yogurt. I saw evidence of danish pastries, but unfortunately didnt get to taste them. According to my husband, they were delicious.
Definitely be back.

Room Tip: waterview near the beach guest house.

That is wonderful you enjoyed your romantic getaway at Sandaway! Thank you for your kind words. If you come back this summer you can watch local watermen catch Maryland's famous blue crabs. In the warmer months many guests like to eat breakfast out on their private waterfront porch. We do hope to see you all again.

Safe travels,

There isn't enough praise to shower upon this b&b. The property is right on the water and absolutely gorgeous. The staff could not have been friendlier and more welcoming.

Our 3rd floor room was spacious and had a massive king size bed, which was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on. There were even binoculars in the room so you could take full advantage of the gorgeous views.

The kitchen downstairs was fully stacked with tea, coffee and snacks for all of your late night and early morning needs. It's really everything you ever wanted out of a bed and breakfast. Will definitely visit again, but this time when it's a little warmer.

My husband and I celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary in this charming get away. Our room overlooked the Tred Avon. Our birds-eye view came from this wonderfully comfy bed that we nestled in after a cosy bath in a claw-footed tub.

Room Tip: #107 had an excellent view

I absolutely loved my time here. I visited the first of the new year and I simply can't imagine vacating any other way. The staff was friendly and my room offered a gorgeous view! Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: There isn't a fitness center.

I bought this overnight on travelzoo and it was a terrific find! I had several emails with the proprietors prior to our visit and they couldn't have been more accommodating as they were on our arrival. Our room was on the third floor but we knew that when we booked.. The room was bright and sunny and very charming with a large bathroom, a king bed and the bedding was sooooo soft. Our view was incredible. We could watch the sunset from our room but chose to go outside and then stopped for a visit in the little boat house with TV and snacks. Snacks and bottles of water and tea and coffee were everywhere and complimentary. They even provided wine glasses and an opener. In the morning we had breakfast in bed. The basket was delivered to our room and we enjoyed all the goodies it contained..I also want to mention how clean everything was.. thank you so much for a brief but very relaxing visit. We can't wait to return.

Room Tip: The third floor room was wonderful, bright and roomy but there are 2 flights of steps. ask for a roo...

That is great you had a terrific stay in one of our 3rd floor Suites! Many guests like the privacy that the Water View Loft Jr. Suite and Beach View Loft Suite have to offer. Because many guests like our luxury bedding so much, we do sell it on our website with free shipping. Our head housekeeper Mary is very pleased to know how much you enjoyed the cleanliness of things. We do hope to see you again. Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Sandaway! It was nice to have you here.

Our (husband and I) visit to Oxford was prompted by my husband winning a contest on the radio (WCEI). We arrived at the Sandaway to find Champagne chilling in our room and shortly after Wendy (owner) arrived with a fruit and cheese tray for us to enjoy. Enjoy we did, the Champagne and tray were just the beginning of the terrific time ahead! A shuttle from Latitude 38 restaurant picked us up and took us to the restaurant where we had fireside dining and great food. After dinner we enjoyed a beverage in the bar where it was Trivial Pursuit night. Too much fun!! Great local people! The shuttle returned us to the Sandaway safe and sound. Our room and bathroom were beautiful, exceptionally clean, and quite large. The room had a wonderful view of the river and a great screened-in porch with rocking chairs looking over the beautiful yard and river. We awoke the next morning to our breakfast in a basket at our door. We enjoyed yummy coffee cake, cinnamon bun, fruit, yogurt, and a carafe of hot coffee. We cannot wait to return to the Sanaway.

Living Social Deal - so SPECTACULAR that we'll be getting another. Room was amazing, the view, the hospitality, everything was WONDERFUL!!!! We drove down and checked in. Wendy showed us the property and even gave us dinner recommendations, a map, and invited us to enjoy the boat house with complimentary snacks and beverages. Dinner was at Latitude 38 and was amazing. We slept through breakfast, so next time will be getting the breakfast basket. We even got to explore the other 17 rooms available for next time. Definite GEM!!!
We look forward to returning again soon!
