We were brought here on a retreat and had no real idea what to expect. It was beyond anything I could have expected anyway. The bed and breakfast has been artfully and tastefully decorated and embellished with a perfect blend of period appropriate aesthetics and local art. The grounds are gorgeous, the amenities are generous. Everything about Sandaway seems to...

My husband and I cam here after an intense 2+ week road trip, and it was the perfect choice. Our room was beautiful--overlooking the Bay-- and well-appointed. We spent two relaxing evenings sitting by the water in relaxing Adirondack Chairs watching the sunset. In the morning we had a continental breakfast bushel basket delivered to our door and we returned...

Charming B&B!! The view from our quaintly vintage beach front room was so beautiful. Breakfast delivered to our door every morning was such a nice touch and added to our wonderfully relaxing visit. Oxford is a lovely little town and St. Michael's is a short drive away.

We had such a wonderful relaxing time at your beautiful Inn. The view of the green lawn sloping to the water's edge with the stately Adirondack chairs from our front door and our basket of yummy breakfast treats delivered to our front door was exactly what we needed to de-stress from our active lives.

Excellent two day early Spring stay at Sandaway. Quiet, peaceful, relaxing, sitting on the lawn chairs in the warm sun overlooking the water, really did not want to leave.
