Although Oxford, MD might seem like a tiny town that’s just shy of 600 residents, it makes up for it with sweet brick-lined streets, yachts gently cruising along the waters, and fairytale-like buildings that sweep across centuries. In fact, that’s why it earned the title, “The Prettiest Town in Maryland”!

To truly get a taste of Oxford’s unique flavors, we recommend staying at least one day in this quaint little town. Thankfully, there’s the beautiful Sandaway Suites & Beach, located in the heart of historical Oxford, just for that.

This Chesapeake Bay bed and breakfast is situated right near the bay and even has its own private beach. With 18 accommodations to choose from, and 50 Years of history in the art of running the perfect BnB, Sandaway Suites caters to every traveler. From the 1875 Victorian mansion, sweet private cottage, or even a relaxing oasis at one of the many deluxe villas, we guarantee that you’ll be delighted with your choice. For those who are planning an extended vacation, such as a family reunion, a girl’s getaway, or a romantic couple’s trip, Sandaway Suites also offers vacation rentals for a party of up to 6 guests. 

One of the most popular bookings at Sandaway Suites is their Tuckaway Cottage, a private cottage-style suite just steps from the waterfront. This classic B&B suite features a sprawling king bed, cozy sitting area, and a large bathroom with a tub for two and separate shower. Sandaway’s motto is The Privacy of a Hotel, the Charm of a Bed & Breakfast, and you’ll certainly find it at Tuckaway Cottage, which is the B&B’s most private suite!

True to its bed and breakfast nature, a complimentary continental breakfast basket is delivered to your door every morning. Inside, you’ll find delicious dishes and local favorites, such as Maryland’s famous Pfefferkorn’s Coffee, which has been roasting since the early 1900s. Why not dig into your morning breakfast on your porch, or talk a walk down to Sandaway’s private beach and enjoy an impromptu picnic? 

Oxford’s main claims to fame is that it is known as a “yachting town,” and even locals like to joke that there are more boats than people. Relax on your private screened porch, a glass of wine in hand, as you watch the boats float along the Chesapeake Bay. If you’re lucky, you’ll even see one of the gorgeous sunsets that Oxford is known for.

Speaking of Chesapeake Bay… Sandaway Suites is a quick 1-minute walk to the Oxford – Bellevue Ferry dock, which was opened in 1683 and is believed to be the nation’s oldest privately operated ferry service. The town of Bellevue, a short ferry ride away, makes for a wonderful day trip and includes bonus views of the beautiful bay along the way. Other fantastic Chesapeake Bay towns to explore include Saint Michaels, Easton, and Cambridge, which are all less than a 30-minute drive away. 

Whether you’re looking for a peaceful retreat for two or a larger get-together with friends and family, Sandaway Suites & Beach is the ultimate Chesapeake Bay getaway.
