Vintage Mansion in Historical Riverside Village

Chesapeake Bay's Sandaway Waterfront Lodging harks back to an idyllic, more laid-back era. Screened porches and old-fashioned rocking chairs overlook the bay as well as the Tred Avon and Choptank Rivers, and a perfect afternoon here involves kicking back underneath the mimosa trees on the lawn. The B&B, housed in a Victorian mansion built in 1875 in one of Maryland’s oldest towns, further evokes the past with handsome clawfoot bathtubs and chandeliers. Rooms are spread throughout the mansion’s three floors, where the Old World country aesthetic is visible in antique four-poster beds and plush armchairs. The waterfront carriage rooms are part of the property’s original estate, where horse-drawn carriages would park for the night before the invention of horse-drawn jetpacks. Now the rooms have bay-facing love seats and wall sconces. Similarly decorated deluxe waterfront king rooms with porches include a personal sitting area and private, screened porch, while waterfront queen rooms feature screened porches with direct access to the lawn and beach. Various suites have added touches such as canopy beds and bathtubs with room for two.

Oxford, MD: Historic Port Town with Sailing and Seafood on Chesapeake Bay

On Maryland’s eastern shore, the village of Oxford maintains its historic charm as a former colonial port for British trade. Locals still enjoy exploring the bay by sailboat, and fishers unload their catches—from soft-shell crab to striped bass—before hauling them off to local seafood eateries. The surrounding Talbot County encompasses more than 600 miles of shoreline, earning the area the title of “the Hamptons of the Chesapeake Bay.” Riding a car ferry from Oxford to the nearby towns is a popular way to travel, as the ferry sometimes provides glimpses of mallard ducks, osprey, and other local wildlife. As one of the closest towns to the ferry landing, Saint Michaels has several boutiques and restaurants as well as the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, which delves into boat building and the area’s seafaring history.
