We went for a quiet getaway and found a wonderful town. The stay at Sandaway was more then we expected. We loved that most rooms had a private screened in porch and lots are facing the water. Breakfast was delivered to our door in a basket. The resort itself was just beautiful with Adirondack chairs sitting on the grounds overlooking...

My husband and I had a wonderful 3days 2 nights stay in this small town, not much to do by relax by the water or take a nice walk along the lake. You are about 20 minutes from St. Michaels for some shopping, dinning and night life. It is a Bed and Breakfast!!

Our room was delightful, the water views and sunset spectacular. Privacy on our own porch to enjoy our breakfast basket, while enjoying a water view - the Sandaway is the perfect spot to kick back and relax. I am already looking forward to our next visit!

This is a lovely property, but not providing a true breakfast for $299.00 per night is unacceptable. We will not return or recommend Sandaway unless real breakfasts are prepared and delivered. Inexcusable to call yourself a B & B with this scenario in force.
