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, and a perfect afternoon here involves lounging underneath the mimosa trees on the lawn. Housed in a Victorian mansion built in 1875 in one of Maryland’s oldest towns, the B & B evokes Old-World charm with handsome clawfoot bathtubs, chandeliers, and antique four-poster beds.

The guest rooms are spread throughout the mansion’s three floors. 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 feature bay-facing love seats and wall sconces. Similarly decorated deluxe waterfront king rooms with porches include a cozy sitting area and a private, screened porch, and the porches are attached to water view or beach view suites and have direct access to the lawn and beach. Some of the suites have added touches, such as canopy beds and bathtubs with room for two.

Oxford, Maryland: 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 “the Hamptons of the Chesapeake Bay.” Riding a car ferry from Oxford to the nearby towns is a popular way to travel, and ferry passengers sometimes catch 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 the art of boat building and the area’s seafaring history.

The room was wonderful and so was the private beach. We brought our kayak and "put in" right at Sandaway. It was so much fun!
