Sandaway Suites & Beach

With stunning waterfront views and a private sandy beach on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay rests Sandaway  Suites & Beach. We invite you to stay in one of our beautifully restored suites or rooms. Guests wake up to a lite breakfast delivered in a basket. At the end of the day, see an awesome sunset! Take a day trip via car ferry to St. Michaels and enjoy the area's shopping and dining.

Sandaway offers charming waterfront lodging and private porches in a picture-perfect setting. Sandaway's location on a point with sweeping water views all around is ideal for enjoying the sunset over the Chesapeake Bay. Stroll through our delightful town of Oxford, Maryland, an authentic Eastern Shore village, with the riches of the Chesapeake Bay playing a large part in both its history and everyday life. Close to other Eastern Shore attractions, just 6 miles from St. Michaels, 10 miles from Easton and Cambridge, and 20 miles from Tilghman Island, Sandaway is a peaceful and comfortable base from which to explore Maryland's Eastern Shore. Relax under towering trees in one of our Adirondack chairs or spend a romantic evening sitting on our sandy beach, watching the colorful sailboats return from the beautiful Chesapeake Bay to anchor in our protected harbor for the night.

"... 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."
The Baltimore Sun

"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. Best of all, there's no shortage of things to do, from sailboat cruises to scenic bike rides." Southern Living

Rooms & Suites

"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
