To the Staff of Sanford House:
I had the privilege of staying at the Sanford House and being pampered at the Spa & Salon on Thursday, January 17, 2019.
My daughter, JoAnn, had given me an overnight stay, dinner, plus a massage and manicure/pedicure for my 70th birthday. Everything was such a wonderful experience.
My room was lovely and so luxurious. My brother and brother-in-law joined me for dinner. We received excellent service by Anthony from the amuse bouche to the palate cleanser to the entrée of salmon, and the dessert and coffee. He was so solicitous and ensured that our experience was wonderful. I was disappointed that the bar did not serve Brandy Alexanders. But that was the only thing lacking. The meal was perfection.
I was also treated to the most wonderful to-die-for massage by Jamie and the absolute best manicure/pedicure I’ve ever experienced by Sydney.
Everyone from the receptionist, to the lovely lady who oversaw my breakfast the next morning, even some young man from the kitchen who found me a bucket of ice because the ice machine was out of ice, deserve much praise.
Please pass on my thanks to everyone who made this a birthday celebration one for the books. You have a wonderful staff.

My husband and I spend our 16th year Anniversary here. We wanted to do something together that we have never done before, so we decided to go to a bed and breakfast. So after searching the Internet for something close to home with a Jacuzzi for two, Shower and rave reviews, we came up with The Sanford House. We really didn’t know what to expect. When we arrived to check in, we walked into such a beautiful entrance. The staircase did a half circle up where we noticed a round beautiful skylight. It was just breathtaking. The staff was very professional and helpful. The Riviera room was beyond what I had dreamed. It was like walking into a little piece of paradise. We had a Massage for two in our suite which really help set the mood. Dinner was Impeccable, our waiter, Alan attended to every need and was very helpful. The chef was awesome, ever bite of food melted in our mouths. The next morning, we walked through the Beautiful Grand Courtyard to the Manor House and had a wonderful breakfast. The weekend was very unforgettable. We can’t wait to come back.

Just a note of gratitude for the very lovely event last Saturday, December 8th, at the Inn. Everyone raved about the place, the food, and the service. We all had a very good time and I, personally, look forward to the next event that I can host there with your very capable assistance. Thank you for all that you planned and executed for the luncheon to be as delicious and fun as it was. Everything was perfect and the bride-to-be was ecstatic. It will be a very nice memory for her and all of us.

I came to Arlington for business and enjoyed my stay very much. The warm cookie when I arrived was a nice surprize. The chef fixed a wonderful made to order omelet the next morning. The staff was friendly and very engaging. My room was perfect. Thank you.

Just wanted to say thank you to our new friends at Sanford House B&B. My husband and I stayed with you while we were in Arlington for the Cotton Bowl (Wooooo Pigs Soooooie!!!!). We will most definitely be back. The entire staff made us feel like family, the accommodations are WONDERFUL and the food is amazing. We envy those folks who live in the historical neighborhood surrounding the B & B because they can take advantage of the cozy bar (like a more upscale & relaxed version of Cheers!) and restaurant whenever they like. Can’t wait to see all of you again very soon!

This is a hidden gem in the DFW area, only about 15-20 minutes from the DFW airport. Recommendation from a friend (Now a much better friend). Quiet. We stayed in a cottage. It was really great for an anniversary get away. Beautiful decor. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. Dinner on site was superb on Saturday night (I think also available on Friday night). Beef tenderloin – Perfect. Bread pudding for dessert – Wow! The bar is very cozy. Ken made the drinks just right and made us feel at home. Nice, affordable wines. Definitely a stay to remember! We will be back!
The entire family wanted to express to you and your staff how wonderful we felt the event for Morgan and Jared Byrd was on Friday, May 13th. The meal was exquisite, Elmer’s cake was OUTSTANDING, the two servers were very attentive, and the setting was superb. Amanda, the decorations and the award table displays were absolutely perfect. You and your staff could not have done a better job! Thank you so much for setting the tone for our family graduation celebration. We appreciate your attention to our event and will recommend The Sanford House to others for their special occasions.
Sincere thanks to all!!

“Whew!! We are back in Florida now and I was sorry we left before you came in yesterday as I really wanted to thank you, Ken and all the staff for the wonderful event for Chris’ graduation. It truly could not have gone better and I wanted to let you know how big a part you played in creating this lifelong memory. Everybody had a fantastic time and so many people commented on the wonderful surroundings and absolutely delicious food!! (In fact, would you please ask chef for the brisket recipe for me? That was the best brisket I have personally ever had!!) We have two daughters and a son between us and know that weddings will be a part of our futures……at least two in Texas so Sandford House goes to the top of the list and your professionalism was a big part of that! Thank you again so much for all of your effort and goodwill. You made a difference and I hope you feel appreciated. Please feel free to use me as a reference for the Inn and I hope to work with you in the future for another event!”

“We appreciated the different venue and the space we had, but most of all the general ambience and overall friendliness and professionalism of all the people at The Sanford House. For me, the ‘icing on the cake’ was the quality of the cuisine which was frankly superb.”

“Tim and Melissa fell in love in your garden and one year later they were married there…We were able to have the Rehearsal Dinner on Friday evening in a fun and colorful flamingo atmosphere with delicious Mexican food that everyone raved about…then the grounds were transformed into the most magical wedding site for a wedding ceremony and reception that was both enchanting and perfectly executed. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you did to make our dreams a reality.”
– Carol and Jerry Severson
“Everything, including the impeccable food service, beautiful landscape, outdoor lighting and skillfully coordinated timing, contributed to the ambiance and enjoyment of our guests…we would put you up against the Mansion any day! You are the best kept secret in the Metroplex.”
– Kathy Amparan
“Your staff graciously made excellent recommendations for dinner, including maps, and was invaluable to us in many ways. They were the definition of Southern Hospitality…I have already recommended The Sanford House to others and will continue to do so. You can be assured that when we travel to the area again, we will definitely visit your wonderful inn.”
