Thank you again Wendy for a great weekend at the Sandaway. Room 108 was clean, comfortable, accommodating and had the most amazing view of the water. The Sandaway is a great place to decompress and relax. The town of Oxford is so quiet, you find yourself whispering walking through town! Assigned parking spot is right outside your door. Old style...

Dear Lynn P, You are very welcome. Having gorgeous weather was a great addition to your stay and I was so happy all our guests got to experience perfect fall weather. We enjoyed having you at Sandaway. The Deluxe Waterfront rooms do have an expansive view of the Bay. Till you come again, Wendy

The location is wonderful, and we enjoyed the view of the water from both the lawn chairs and the screened in porch; it is a perfect place for relaxing and to use as a base for exploring the Eastern Shore. It was nice that water and snacks were available throughout the day. The room was really a suite with a...

Dear discerningguest1951, Thank you for taking the time to send a review. We are fortunate to have such a wonderful property to share with guests. I think I know what room you were in. We are constantly updating our accommodations, in fact the bedroom just got completely wallpapered last year and we put in a mini fridge. Being a family...

The welcoming sign in front says that Sandaway was built in 1875, which makes it an historic gem, but it looks like the benefactor of a million dollars worth of loving upkeep. Sandaway is spotless throughout and decorated with art and other pretty touches. Owners Ken and Wendy Gibson, and their son Ben who manages the Inn, were so welcoming...

Dear Pete H, It was our pleasure to make your stay feel like home. That is nice to know you liked your bed so much and the view. The Deluxe Waterfront with porch rooms are some of our most popular.

I found this place because it had a Travelzoo special. When I called in July to make an August reservation, the Innkeeper, Ben Gibson, said he was extending to the end of November, and recommended making reservations soon. We selected a waterfront queen with a screened in porch because my wife loves screened in porches. We had a mix of...

We had a very relaxing stay. The room was a second floor king deluxe and worth the upgrade. The soaking tub is a one person tub. No refrigerator in the room, so it was ice in the trash can for the wine & beer. The mattress was very soft, which might be an issue for those with back problems. There...
