    Great quality and friendly staff!

    After going on a tour with Samantha at The Sanford House I quickly cancelled my upcoming tours of other venues. Samantha was a delight to work with, she answered all of my questions and was always quick to reply. We absolutely loved our dinner at our reception and how helpful all of the staff was. Everything was beautiful.
