Originally we were in the room on the third floor, very steep stairs and not a really good view, but more room in bathroom and sitting area, and you have your own tv and fridge. So they then showed us a smaller room on the 2nd floor which had a screened in porch that overlooked the bay, beautiful. The room...

Sandaway, Manager at Sandaway Waterfront Lodging, responded to this review

Dear JoAnn C, We are glad you had a relaxing getaway. It was good timing I was in the office when you requested a waterfront room. The Beach View King rooms are in the original section of the lodge, so there are limitations to the size of the bathrooms we had to work around. You decided to go with the...

I'm sorry I'm writing this review so late. My boyfriend and I purchased a living social coupon to stay at this bed and breakfast. We'd always wanted to try out a bed and breakfast and Sandaway provided us with an amazingly wonderful experience. We arrived Oct. 13, 2014 and stayed for 2 nights. Our room was the second floor suite...

Dear Allyson M, Wow! It was so much fun to read your review! I remember you both explicitly! I thank you so much for taking the time to share how having no tv worked out in your favor. For the future, I just want you to know all our suites (5 have cable tv) and our two town view suites....

The Sandaway is a beautiful place to get away. You are right by the water. They have Adriondack Chairs that you can sit on and relax looking out at the water. It is very peaceful and relaxing. We were located on the third floor. This can be very difficult to navigate especially the final flight of steps. The breakfast is...

Absolutely loved the property,room (especially the view ) and staff. We had a corner waterfront room on the second floor with a screened in sizable porch that overlooked the river.

Restaurants and B&B's are about experiences. Included in that are people, the one(s) your with and the staff and owner, the location, the facility and in the case of a getaway, nice weather usually helps (unless you want to be snowed in!). I strive to be constructively critical when possible. Some situations don't allow it. There are lots of choices...

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 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.

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...

I found this place because it had a Travelzoo special.

“Second floor suites are walk-ups, but have better views. Some suites may not have views, so be sure to ask when booking.”
  • The attraction of the Sandaway is its spectacular location, not its room accommodations or decor
