Great place for a romantic retreat for any special occasion. Staff ensured we had everything you needed and wanted with small town hospitality in the big city. We will definitely by staying here again!!

Everything was perfect. from the location to the cottage to the amenities The only thing that we missed was lunch and dinner during the days we stayed there. If this could be included as a service, I would most certainly frequent the place.

A luxurious resting place following a hectic week of travel. The room was spacious with top quality linens and period furnishings creating a relaxing ambiance. The landing outside our room had a diverse library and a chaise for lounging. Quality, cordial service. Fine dining is offered in a relaxing, elegant setting. Food was delicious!

We live in the country and have to work in the city a couple of days a week so the hotel scene got old really quick. The Sanford House makes our work in the city much more pleasurable and relaxing. This country mouse can handle the city life a little easier now that we have discovered a home away from... More

Five of us shared the Villa Monaco and found it very comfortable and luxurious. The staff was pleasant and some of them very helpful. The food on our second morning was wonderful, but we were surprised when the chef said he cooked the breakfast on the Monday since it was sub par. I'd say go for it, though.

Visited family from the UK in June. Excellent hotel. Nothing to Fault. Lovely room. Stayed in the "The Bach Room" with the balcony. Great for the evenings. The staff were so friendly. The breakfast was beautifully presented. The hotel created a colonial atmosphere with its surroundings and background music. Would recommend all the way.

This was our first experience with a B&B and it was fabulous. The hospitality of everyone was great. There was no hustle and bustle. The grounds were beautiful and relaxing. Our room was super and spotless. The heat was a bit unbearable but we still had a great time. Breakfast was delicious each day and Makayla was a great waitress.... More

I am so sorry that the room was warm upon your arrival. When the weather outside gets to over 100 degrees, some warmth on a second floor room is to be expected. All of our air conditioning units have recently been inspected and are in good working order and I am so glad that the temperature went down as you... More

Wanted a quiet beautiful place to relax a few days. Sanford House has a big colonial type bed and breakfast with lovely cottages. Serves a great breakfast and certain days have dinner. Located in old part of Arlington. A great spa across the street. We had a relaxing few days.

Great place to get away and totally relax. Only had a couple to days to unwind before returning to the rat race and this is the perfect place for that. Friendly and professional staff. Wonderful food. Quiet grounds. Highly recommend Restaurant 506. Chef John does a fabulous job with the perfect mix of flavor and texture. Yummy! Breakfast is a... More
