News from Sand Rock Farm, December 2010

Dec 6th, 2010 by admin | 0
Greetings to Sand Rock Farm Guests whether recent, or anytime in the past 10 years.

We have great news to share!

2011 will be Sand Rock Farm’s 10th Year hosting guests from near and far. It seems like yesterday that we opened the doors for our first guests.

In honor of our 10th Anniversary, we will be offering all returning guests 10% off a new stay in 2011. When you make your reservation, let us know the year you visited. If you can remember the room you stayed we have an extra goody to take home with you. Call today to make your reservation. 831.688.8005.

Come see the changes that 10 years have brought to the house and grounds. We remodeled the bathroom in Sunporch adding a fourth Jacuzzi bath. We created a true Hidden Garden for the Hidden Garden Suite which now has both a private garden and a private hot tub. Of course flowers are blooming and bushes have grown. The garden and orchard are maturing.You should taste the raspberries. Some things never change. As you come up the drive and turn to the house, the giant redwood and heritage oak continue to welcome you back with open arms.

We would love to hear what you have been doing since your last visit. See if you can find your name in our journals. We have kept them all from the very first day we opened the doors. If you married here, (and we have hosted many lovely weddings) we would love to have you share a story from your wedding day.

December to Remember- Escape to paradise in Santa Cruz during December and experience our best weather all season without the crowds! Includes a gift certificate to my favorite restaurant for lunch or dinner. Through the end of December, 2010.

Stress Buster!- Feeling tired after a long day of holiday shopping? Relax with a specialized hour long in room massage and then enjoy your own private jacuzzi tub or hot tub at Sand Rock Farm. Through the end of December, 2010, just add $60 per massage to your room reservation.
