The Sanford House, Arlington, Texas
by Carl Burnham
Conveniently located between Dallas and Fort Worth in the historic town of Arlington, the Sanford House provides a tranquil setting to unwind and enjoy the area. Built in 1996 as a luxury inn, the Sanford House also hosts weddings, meetings, serves lunch, and offers a full service spa and salon just across the street.
The landscaped grounds are popular for hosting weddings, reunions, family gatherings, or relaxing, with a gazebo, pavilion, fountain, swimming pool, and garden path with waterfall all well maintained.
The Sanford House has 8 guest rooms available within the house, with 4 private cottages on the grounds. Each of the guest rooms are non-smoking, and include either king or queen beds, vintage furniture pieces, cable TV with premium channels and remote, high speed Internet access, private bathrooms, complementary local calls, and breakfast.
Our room, the Strauss Room (shown above), is over the carriage house, with a balcony that overlooks the grounds, and is popular with newlyweds. The room includes a king bed with large Baker armoire from the 1920s, a Meyer-Gunther-Martinin sofa, and vintage lamps dating to the 1950s.

Each of the Inn guest rooms are named after famous musical composers including Handel, Brahms, Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Vivaldi, and Strauss, and are tastefully decorated. Click on each image above to see a closeup view of the guest rooms available.
