Stayed here for our 20th anniversary. The view from room 109 is breathtaking! Very peaceful, and even on a hot day the breeze from the river made it feel great. There's not a lot to do in Oxford, so if you need adventure, look somewhere else. If you need to unwind and get away from it all... This is your...

We stayed in a lovely 1st floor room with a private screened porch overlooking the water. The room was charming and the property well maintained. The Inn put us in contact with a local masseuse who arranged a couples massage outdoors on the porch during a beautiful thunderstorm! We visited a couple of local restaurants both within walking distance. This...

We spent this past Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in an upstairs water view suite with an amazing bathroom and screened in porch.

We enjoyed our two night stay and would highly recommend the room with waterfront view with private porch. The views of the river were beautiful, such a serene and tranquil setting. Enjoyed strolling in Oxford. Our breakfast basket each morning was filled with decadent goodies. Hosts hospitable and friendly.

Dear Leonard3007, In response to your review I am so glad you liked Sandaway. I remember everything about your visit as I checked you in and spoke to you as you were leaving.

My boyfriend and I wanted to get away for just one night over Memorial Day Weekend, normally there is a two night minimum for this weekend.

Sandaway, Owner at Sandaway Waterfront Lodging Suites and Beach, responded to this review

Dear travel359, I want to thank you for your lovely review. The beach view loft is an unusually large suite and because of renovations to the Victorian building we created as many porches for guests as possible, thus some we call some "detached porches". We are glad you liked the Robert Morris Inn for dinner. We get great reviews from...

The Sandaway is such a relaxing place. We had a lovely room and could just wander onto the grass. An osprey liked to sit in the tree right outside and sat there eating a fish one morning.

Dear PaulaL888, Loved your kayak review. Many guests arrive with their own kayaks, although they can be rented right in Oxford. So glad you liked your 3rd floor suite with a first floor private porch. Oh, and the Highland Creamery icecream is rated the best in Maryland. Hurry back! The river is calling you.

First and foremost, this is THE place to stay in Oxford, MD. Located at the tip of Town Point, the Sandaway Lodge commands 300 degree views of the Tred Avon River.
