My friend and I stayed at the Sanford House for 4 nights recently, from Friday, July 25th through Monday, July 28th. We are great friends who are on a quest to see all 30 Major League Baseball stadiums within the next 7 years and we also want to sight see the areas where we stay. After some research we chose...

My sister lives in Arlington and did not even know about this gem of a place. We rented two of their cottages and could not have been more pleased with the facilities. It was warm and cozy. The staff respected our privacy but was very helpful with all requests. The beds were comfortable and they have the best breakfasts. Next... More

This is the 2nd time that I have treated myself to an overnight stay, after a visit to the Spa. Great food, clean rooms, helpful staff, secure, refreshing and relaxing. When you work hard, you just have to relax and get away from it all.

My husband and I decided to take a short 1 night 2-day get away from our home in Dallas. We found this bed & breakfast in Arlington -- and I cannot overstate how fabulous our stay was. We were more rested after that one night than we've been after week-long vacations before. We stayed in one of the cottages --... More

We had a local wedding in Arlington. We used the Verona cottage to prepare for the wedding and to enjoy the first night of our honeymoon. The cottage was the perfect setting for the brides maids to get ready. A friend purchased the romance package for us and we came back to a rose petaled room with tea lights. A... More

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.

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
