Great Location

4.4 on May 31, 2015

Can't think of a better location for a bed and breakfast! Sitting on our private porch or the chairs on the lawn, and watching the sun set over the river was a perfect way to end the day. Oxford is a small town, and it was easy to walk from the B&B to most dining options and shops. This is convenient to Easton, St. Michaels, and other points of interest on the Eastern Shore. We are likely to return in the future!


Had a wonderful stay

4.8 on May 22, 2015

The staff was friendly and helpful. On-the-water lodging was good value. We did not eat at the Sandaway, but rather at the Inn across the street, so can't comment on the food at the Sandaway, but food at the Inn was outstanding. We'll stay at the Sandaway again when we want a weekend getaway.


Wonderful weekend

We spent our 25th wedding anniversary in your Tuckaway Cottage Suite. The room was warm and cozy. The bathroom was lovely. The view was spectacular from the beach. Norma in the office couldn't have been more helpful. Really enjoyed the beach sitting room and the library.


Wonderfully peaceful and beautiful

My wife and I stayed on a second floor corner waterfront room with a porch. Fantastic. The only thing missing was a table on the porch to sit there and eat...if we had that we may NEVER have left the room! Took the short ferry ride to the St Michael area for the fun of it and then went down to the Blackwater Wildlife Refuge the next day and had lunch in Cambridge but made sure we were back in time for sunset at the room... was a must not miss event. Highly recommended!


Always Accommodating and feels like Home

This was our 4th trip to Sandaway and it was on a whim. We could only stay one night and the Gibson Family who own the Inn were very helpful in getting us the Cozy room upstairs. We had a lovely stay, the grounds are always so well kept and just sitting on the Adirondacks watching the Osprey fish is one of the most relaxing spots on the East Coast. The staff is always friendly and it is such a charming property and Oxford is quite the gem. Definitely come by Ferry across the Tred Avon. There are great restaurants in Oxford as well. Thanks again to the Gibson Family for another wonderful stay!


This special place stays with me.

Why We Return to Sandaway

5 on May 21, 2014

#1: To relax. Take in soothing river views, ride the nearby ferry, stroll through charming Oxford and return to a well appointed, quiet room. #2: For the many diverse restaurants in Oxford, St. Michaels and Easton (there's something for every taste and wallet). #3. Because The Gibson Family takes pride in ensuring satisfaction with every aspect of your stay. Sandaway is also their home.


A Delightful Experience

3.6 on May 03, 2014

Absolutely no complaints! We are frequent B&B clients throughout the Eastern Snore. The Sandaway was one of our better experiences. We expect solid service and value and were not disappointed. The grounds and waterfront views were first rate. The staff and our hosts were most professional. We will be back.
