We walked through the small town of Oxford, watched the sun rise and set, walked along the beach, rented bikes, took the ferry and biked to St. Michaels, ate at 2 wonderful restaurants, and relaxed the porch. Sandaway has so...

The Sandaway is located on a spectacularly beautiful waterfront point on a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay in the small boating town of Oxford, Maryland. Guests have access to a wonderful, gently-sloping lawn directly on the waterfront, and many of the rooms have beautiful sunset views of the water from both inside and on private screened porches directly attached to...

Dear Projournalist, Thank you for detailed review of Sandaway and letting other travelers know about our "spectacular location" in Oxford, MD. Your suite has been upgraded many times since it was built in the 1980s next to Sandaway's Lodge. We recently upgraded several waterfront rooms in the lodge, so I hope you can try one next time. All our accommodations...

We had two wonderful nights at the inn. We especially enjoyed our private screened porch with a fabulous view of the Tred Avon. The Inn is very quaint but also has all the modern touches including wi-fi and cable tv. Our room was impeccably clean and the bed very comfortable. Coffee, tea and water are always available and there's a...

We went for a quiet getaway and found a wonderful town. The stay at Sandaway was more then we expected. We loved that most rooms had a private screened in porch and lots are facing the water. Breakfast was delivered to our door in a basket. The resort itself was just beautiful with Adirondack chairs sitting on the grounds overlooking...

Our room was delightful, the water views and sunset spectacular. Privacy on our own porch to enjoy our breakfast basket, while enjoying a water view - the Sandaway is the perfect spot to kick back and relax. I am already looking forward to our next visit!
