“We were delighted!”
Reviewed 22 October 2011

For our anniversary, we stayed in the waterview suite on the first floor of the lodge. All of the staff were gracious and helpful. Found the room to be charming. Especially enjoyed the king size bed and large bathtub/shower. Our morning basket came with a newspaper, juice, pastries, yogurt, fresh fruit, dried cranberries and a pot of coffee. My wife drinks tea so I slipped around the corner to the study and made her a cup from the Keurig machine available there. Water and snack bars are also in this room, along with books and games. Be sure to check out the weeping beech tree. It looks deceptively nondescript, but part the branches and walk underneath it to a wide open area with gnarly branches sprouting from the thick trunk. Unfortunately, a very bad storm hit while we were there and we witnessed the eponymous event that gives the place its name. A good bit of the beach was eroded. Owner Ben said that this is a repetitive event.

Thanks for sharing your anniversary stay at Sandaway. We enjoyed meeting you both and hope to see you again. The beach in front of Sandaway has been repaired. We invite you to return to Sandaway when the beach weather returns this Summer.

Safe travels,

The Sandaway Lodge provided a very relaxing environment for my wife and I. It was enjoyable to relax on an autumn weekend overlooking the river while sitting on the lawn or deck, without the external influence of a phone or television. Looking forward to returning next year to relax and eat at on of the area restaurants.

a last minute reservation turned into a memorable getaway. Stayed in the Beach View, had the third floor to ourselves, separate bath was a delight w/ the claw foot tub. Every window had a view of the water, sailboats galore.
Only thing I would prefer would be a hot breakfast, the Lite fare basket is very nice but not quite what you would like at this price point. There is a 15% discount for breakfast at a local eatery. The small boathouse was a pleasant surprise.

Room Tip: Third floor suite is probably a little warm in the summer. I didnt see a room w/ obstructed views. N...

This was a far prettier location than I expected from its website. The service was wonderful -- top notch. All the extras were elegant and unexpected. I stayed in the main house -- Choptank 202 and the view was breathtaking from the bed / room / screened porch. You can walk right to town (what town there is). Lots of little unexpected perks. A lot of thought has gone into Sandaway's service and property.

Room Tip: Stay in the main lodge! I think Choptank 201 and 202 are the best rooms.

At the end of the road overlooking a lovely waterview sits the Sandaway. The location couldn't be lovelier, but the room we had was oddly informal. It was a mini-apartment which was nice, but the floors were linoleum, the wallpaper was an odd mish-mash, and the amenities weren't quite as "rich" as I would have hoped. We had coffee, but no tea in the room, and the "free internet" was too far away for us to pick up the signal. It just seemed a little more "worn" than "quaint." I did not see any of the other rooms - the main house had a lovely porch on it. All in all, it was fine, but I guess I imagined something a little fancier.

Room Tip: Ask for something with a water view.
