Never stayed at a bed and breakfast, but absolutely LOVED this place. Only wish we could have had a late check out to enjoy the room a little longer. We stayed in the Strauss room and really enjoyed it. The bed was sooo comfortable, the room was spacious and dark in the morning hours. Our server/cook at breakfast was courteous and provided great service and food.

Room Tip: The Strauss was large, but it did share a balcony and hallway with another room. No one stayed next...

Imagine if you had a rich old aunt who lived in a mansion, was a charming hostess, and a wonderful cook. If you don't have this, don't worry, you can get the same experience at Sunday Brunch at Restaurant 506 at The Sanford House. The setting is old style elegance, the food is wonderful and the service excellent. The prices are very reasonable ($10.50 for Eggs Bendedict, Scallops $13, and $6 for a generous Bloody Mary) and comparable with what you might spend at an average chain restaurant. A wonderful way to spend a Sunday lunch with friends in a quiet and comfortable setting. Highly recommended.

My wife and I celebrated our 33rd Anniversary at The Sanford House B&B and truly enjoyed our experience! Our room (The Strauss Room) in the Carriage House was large and comfortable and had a fantastic view of the Courtyard from its balcony. Ironically, there was a wedding in the Courtyard the night we stayed, so we got to reminisce back to ours while having a chance to watch it. Dinner at The 506 Restaurant was spectacular! The food was prepared perfectly and the service was impeccable. We started off with the Sanford House Champagne with the Ahi Tuna appetizer. Our entrees were the Tenderloin Medallions and the Halibut, both prepared to perfection. The raspberry creme brulee was a great finish to a wonderful evening. The breakfast in the morning was also very good! We would recommend the 506 to anyone!

Room Tip: Carriage House rooms and Villas are quieter.

My brother, sister and I booked a room for Saturday night for my parents 40th anniversary and we would just like to say thank you so much for the amazing time that they had with you. The staff at the house, restaurant and spa were so sweet and attentive to them. My parents said that their room was amazing, the food was the best they have ever had and their massages were heavenly. This was definitely an experience they will treasure for a lifetime.

What a gem right in the middle of Arlington! Not far from the stadiums if you have a sports enthusiast, great spa right across the street which is linked to the Sanford House. Very handicap accessible from the court yard right into the main house, smooth ramps all around!

The only down side was our A/C not working properly but it wasn't unbearable and there wasn't anything that could be done about it that night anyway. We managed and the Verona cottage was very beautiful and convenient to local attractions.

Delicious breakfast was included with the room in the lovely Manor House dining room, what a delight!
