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.

My husband stayed in the room the night before our wedding and the next night when I arrived they had prepared it with candles and rose petals. The room is extremely... More

We really enjoyed! This was a gift from my daughter. She booked a cottage for the two of us to relax and spend time together away from the normal events of every day life. The beautiful grounds, a cottage that had the feel of stepping back in time with the comforts of today. Wonderful! To top it off breakfast the... More

I continue to be impressed with The Sanford House...however, this place has moved to the top of my list nationally because of the fine dining. I travel about a week a month for business which means I get to "enjoy" the national standard locations (Ruth's Chris, McCormick & Schmick's, Luger's, etc.)...all good in their own environment I suppose but really...

We booked the Vivaldi room for a three day stay and wished we could have stayed longer. Our room was clean and just as described online. Everyone there was so friendly and the food was OUTSTANDING!

Breakfast the next morning was great. The grounds are so beautiful there. There was a wedding going on while we were there, but we couldn't even here the... More
