This was a wonderful experience and almost didn't happen. We had booked hotel rooms to stay at for our son's wedding in Arlington. At the last minute, we were able to rent the manor house rooms and stay with him, the bride and her family. What a lovely place to be. The rooms were beautiful, breakfast was awesome, and most...

My wife and I celebrated our birthdays by staying at this wonderful place! We stayed in one of the cottages and it is well-appointed. Everyone was so warm and friendly. The breakfast was awesome and dinner at Restaurant 506 was to die for. This will definitely be our new couple's getaway from now on. You must visit Sanford House!

We booked a night for our honeymoon ;) my husband and I decided to get married after 10 years and two kids. So I wanted to find a romantic place that was close to home. My husband was really impressed. Everyone we encountered was really nice and professional, we might just make it a regular thing to celebrate our anniversary.

We only were looking to have a nice dinner, but in the search came upon this lovely place. I wanted to surprise my husband for our 5th anniversary and we both were in for a treat actually. We arrived on a Friday evening, luckily they had a room on a few days notice, booked a package and got such a... More

For special occasions, my husband and I consider the Sanford House first. It is in the heart of the metroplex in a charming old neighborhood, which is fun for a walk. However, the Sanford House is a completely sufficient retreat. The dinners are sumptuous and intimate. The rooms are elegantly appointed and comfy, and so private and quiet, we are... More

We ended up at this beautiful boutique hotel late at night after being turned away at all the usual franchises near the athletic stadiums and 6 Flags. Near downtown Arlington, and convenient to FtWorth, there was ample room to park our small rental truck and we had our choice of attractive rooms. We choose the Beethoven Room in the main... More

I booked 9 rooms at the Sanford House for a Company meeting. I wanted a place our team could enjoy and still be close to our offices. The location was perfect. Our team loved the House, breakfast every morning and of course all the great rooms. We had a planned event after dinner back at the house and the staff... More

My husband and I spent a romantic weekend at The Sanford House for Valentine's day. I can't believe we hadn't come here before-AMAZING! We stayed in the Regency cottage-which was comfy and beautiful (not girl and not too masculine) tucked in the corner, which had a beautiful fountain out front as well! We spent our evening dining at Restaurant 506-which... More

I recently officiated an outdoor wedding at The Sanford House in Arlington, TX, and found it to be a lovely venue. Amazingly, it was about 70 degrees in early January, and the ceremony was able to take place on a smaller patio area, next to the reception room. The staff, especially the wedding coordinator, were all kind and attentive to... More

Wow I really can not say enough of the Sanford House and Inn and restaurant 506. The staff greeted us like we were long lost friends. The check in was smooth and the Beethoven Room was spot on. Not only Restaurant 506 cookies, a bottle of wine, cheese and fruit (THANKS AGAIN CHEF MARIO!!!!). Room was clean and so comfortable.........like... More
