Proprietor Kris Sheehan has created a simple yet sophisticated bed and breakfast retreat, an exquisite European-style country inn.  Historic Sand Rock Farm is the perfect Santa Cruz Bed and Breakfast because of the ideal location just outside the city. A fusion of “Country Inn” and “European Retreat,” we provide unparalled blend of gracious hospitality, a serene environment, and lodging convenience.

If you’re considering a bed and breakfast in Monterey, look no further — we’re minutes away! Centrally located on the California Coast, our inn is the perfect gateway to the Monterey Bay and the Santa Cruz mountains.

Everything you expect from a premiere Northern California bed and breakfast, and features you won’t find in any commercial hotel or inn. Enjoy Sand Rock Farm and make your Monterey and Santa Cruz vacation an experience of a lifetime.
