“Beautiful Inside & Out!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

We stayed 2 nights at the Sanford House while visiting relatives. The Strauss Room was beautiful, very roomy and has a deck overlooking the beautiful courtyard. I was blow away by the beautiful courtyard setting and landscape. Breakfast was fast and delicious!!! Staff was excellent in every way! The Sanford House not only was close to our relatives, but also close to both stadiums and easy access to the freeway. Will definitely stay at the Sanford House again in the future!

Room Tip: I consider the Sanford House more for adults than children (especially small children)....did not se...

My partner and I spent 3 wonderful nights at the Stanford House and recommend a stay here to anyone going to Arlington Texas. Close to everything for ease of driving, Easy access to the freeway and in to Dallas to see the museums. The rooms are charming and very comfortable. The meals are excellent and make you feel as if you are in a families old home as their guest. The staff is right-on, making you feel at home and really glad to assist in any request. We wanted poached eggs one morning with hollandaise and it was prepared for us, and really great homemade hollandaise. We will look forward to our next visit and have found a place to call home in Texas.

Room Tip: We love the rooms upstairs in the original home!

There was a mix up in the room that we reserved but they more than made up for it with a better room and free dessert. They were very accomodating in every way. The entire staff was extremely customer oriented, friendly and very enjoyable to be around. I highly recommend it and will go back. The feel and beauty of the well kept house and grounds are wonderful. Our children gave this to us for our anniversary and it was an excellent gift.

Room Tip: We loved the Beethoven room with the fireplace. The best room by far. Corner room but if you want...

We did a little 'staycation" (our fourth at the Sanford House) and really enjoyed it (again)!

We've also been here for a jazz concert in the Grand Courtyard back yard oasis and they have a great spa across the street, too!

This is the only B&B of this kind that we know of in Arlington and we love it! The homemade cookies waiting for you in the room are fabulous, too!

Room Tip: We were in the Mozart room at the Manor House this time, but preferred the Vivaldi from a previous v...

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Sanford House and were blown away. We had been at several venues there but had never stayed over night. We stayed in a cottage which was well appointed, spacious and made us feel decadent. We had both dinner and breakfast which were fabulous and such great service. We had spa treatments which were great and with such friendly staff. We enjoyed walking the grounds both in the day and at night under the lights strung around the trees and buildings. Thanks for the marvelous romantic get away.

Room Tip: Cottages are very spaceous.

We spent two nights at the Sanford and in everyway it exceeded our expectations. Excellent staff who really cared about you, comfortable rooms and beds, excellent restaurant. Highly recommended for mature guests who enjoy a very european style small inn.

I attended a Mom's Retreat at the Sanford House in March. The grounds are beautiful! Everyone enjoyed the luxurious rooms and dining, which felt like a treat, but not stuffy. We enjoyed various spa treatments at Sanford Spa (next door). The staff was over-the-top friendly, helpful and professional. We walked down to Babe's Chicken (just a block down the street) for dinner one night, but ate the rest of our meals at Sanford House. Everything was great. We have already booked Sanford House for our event next year, and I'm personally planning on going there for a weekend on my anniversary.
