Sandaway is a Chesapeake Bay getaway with eighteen bed and breakfast style accommodations in historic Oxford, Maryland.

Guests staying overnight can choose between accommodations in the circa 1875 Sandaway Lodge and Sandaway's more modern Deluxe rooms.

Most B&B rooms at Sandaway are waterfront with private porches overlooking the Tred Avon River, Choptank River, and Chesapeake Bay beyond.

Our large waterfront lawn and private sandy beach are great for relaxing.

Guests staying at our Oxford, MD bed and breakfast have many choices for things to do while on vacation.

Three popular activities are very convenient. One, you can take the scenic car ferry across the river for a short-cut to St. Michaels and also enjoy the nearby towns of Tilghman and Easton. We call this “doing the loop.” Second choice is to drive 20 minutes to Cambridge and explore the famous Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. Third choice is to find yourself a lounge or Adirondack chair at the Sandaway property to linger away the day watching sailboats, yachts and wildlife go by.

After seeing a fabulous sunset, have a romantic or casual dinner at one of the many top restaurants in Talbot County and Oxford.

"I stayed in one of the inn's summer cottages, with waist-high wainscoting, a step-up king bed, a screened porch overlooking the water and a polished white clawfoot tub in which I took bubble baths as often as I could."

 Los Angeles Times


"The 1875 Victorian mansion, set among mimosa and horse chestnut trees, is more secluded and its spacious rooms and suites are furnished with king- and queen-size beds. There is a sandy beach, where swimming is possible until mid-July, when the sea nettles arrive."

The New York Times


"... this is the place for a good old B&B getaway on the Eastern Shore."

Editor's Pick


"If you're seeking even greater solitude and room to be a porch potato..."

Baltimore Magazine


"You'll be equally impressed by its lovely waterfront location."

Conde' Nast Traveler


"Lots of porches, huge trees, and chaise lounges make this a comfortable retreat."



"It is a grand, Dutch colonial complex at the town's northwestern tip. Here, on two green acres with a private beach, guests can feel like latter-day Jay Gatsbys and Daisy Buchanans, sipping cocktails as the sun dips toward St. Michaels."

 "Talbot County, Maryland, is packed with great places to stay, play, and eat...With so many great restaurants, there's absolutely no excuse for going home from this trip with an empty belly.
