“Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed January 28, 2011

I previously had organized a company meeting here and decided to treat my husband to a birthday getaway. The location is very convenient and the grounds and property are absolutely beautiful. The staff is very willing to help with any questions or accommodations needed. We stayed in the Riviera cottage suite and enjoyed the oversized whirlpool tub and huge shower. We weren't able to stay for breakfast, but the food is always wonderful. This property would be beautiful for a wedding and the rooms are so lovely, it is really appropriate for any occasion. I look forward to our next visit!

We will definitely go back again, possibly for our anniversary this summer. We would like to experience the nice courtyard and pool in warmer weather. Beautiful surroundings & great dining as well.

We have only stayed at the Sanford House two times, but we always appreciate the privacy and quietness of the place even though it in a college town. The rooms/villas are decorated in good taste and you feel as comfortable as if you are at home. The pool and gardens are beautiful and we hope to visit in the spring when we can relax and enjoy them.

We stayed in the Riviera cottage during Thanksgiving holiday. The room is awesome with comfy couch and bed. The jacuzzi tub was most relaxing. We enjoyed the welcome cookies and the delicious breakfast at the cafe. We will definitely be back.

Arlington tries, but when you have Fort Worth and Dallas so close... it just can't quite measure up! Well, every rule has an exception and Sanford House is the execption. The two bedroom villas are fabulous. The bar is lovely. Dinner was delicious. The staff was kind, generous, and very accomodating.

Breakfast was breakfast... eggs...yummy hot eggs with Texas Toast... Oh yeah worth every calorie! (I can eat oatmeal at home or a continental breakfast during a conference meeting).

The resturant is a too well kept secret! You don't have to be a guest (who knew?). The food is very good. The atmosphere has a quiet refinement perfect for enjoying the company of your dinner partner.

When I walked into our Villa, I told my spouse we were moving in! It was beautifully decorated and clean, clean, clean! All the ammenities were included: soaps, shampoo, lotions, hair dryer, fridge, water, coffee, and fresh baked COOKIES!

The grounds are beautiful and could easily accomadate an intimate wedding, family reunion, or retreat. Wtih the spa across the street, golf close by, and Cowboy Stadium around the corner, there is something for everyone's enjoyment.

I'll be thinking up all kinds of reasons to go back.

Our stay at Sanford House was a nice experience. The Regency cottage has beautiful furnishings and was very relaxing. Loved the jacuzzi tub and fireplace in the room. Breakfast was excellent - they call it "Continental", but it was much more. It's in an older part of town, but this property is newer and very well maintained - the outdoor courtyard is beautiful.
We would definitely stay here again - but probably only with a discount coupon as we did this time.

The cottage we stayed in for our anniversary was awesome! We only wish we could have stayed longer. It was beautifully decorated and the grounds of the bed and breakfast were very pretty. This place is nestled in the middle of a neighborhood near the Ballpark in Arlington.
