Sand Rock Farm was originally a 1000-acre ranch and winery built by August and Eva Lilliencrantz in the 1880's. At the height of operations in 1907, over 70 acres of vines were planted and 130,000 gallons of wine were shipped. The property remained in the Lilliencrantz family until the 1960's when it was purchased for use as a private home. Sand Rock Farm was started in 1999 by Kris Sheehan, who lovingly restored the property with authentic antique furnishings and fixtures. The beautiful grounds and event areas attracted many brides and grooms and under Kris's ownership, Sand Rock Farm earned an excellent reputation not just as an inn, but also as one of the area's premier wedding and elopement destinations. Today, Derek and Jen Hagglof continue the tradition of warm hospitality, offering comfortable, relaxing and romantic accommodations on ten acres of gorgeous, natural and historic settings for special occasions such as engagements, elopement and mini weddings, anniversaries, reunions and retreats for 24 or fewer guests.
