This is the perfect place for quiet tranquility. We were there in the off season. The downside was that only one restaurant was open in Oxford. It was Latitude 38,and it was wonderful. We were delighted that we upgraded to a river view room with its lovely balcony, or we could stay in bed and still see the serene waterfront....

Dear Newretirees, So glad you loved Sandaway even in the off season. Truth be told, that water looks good even if it is cold out. Those Deluxe Suites offer views from anywhere in the room including from the bed as you experienced. Sandaway is really about the simple things in life like rocking chairs, sunsets, all kinds of boat traffic,...

This was our first visit to Sandaway and we will not hesitate to return. We stayed in 303 for two days and considered the room very comfortable and spacious. It was so nice to hear the water lapping the shore and birds singing in the morning... and nothing else! We explored the lovely town of Oxford by taking several long...

My wife and I had returned to Sandaway again after almost two years. We originally came down for a shot honeymoon after our wedding June 2013. The hospitality was exemplary, such a nice staff who was on top of everything you could think of and more. This is what what drew us to return to the B and B again....

This is the perfect weekend, getaway location when you truly want to get away from it all.

This is the place. Just a one and a half hour's drive from DC and you can see the stars at night and a postcard view with your breakfast in bed in the morning. My husband and I stayed for 2 nights on Christmas day and the day after using a groupon deal. Very off season - so I believe...

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...

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...

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.

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.
