Something old, something new....  

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 to Europe.  The property remained in the Lilliencrantz family until the 1960's when it was purchased for use as a private home.  Rumor has it that members of the Grateful Dead and Santana used to jam in the barn in the 60's and 70's.  Sand Rock Farm was converted into a bed and breakfast in 1999 by Kris Sheehan, who lovingly restored the property with authentic antique furnishings and fixtures.  The beautiful grounds attracted many couples and Sand Rock Farm soon earned an excellent reputation not just as an inn, but also as one of the area's premier wedding and elopement destinations.  In recent years, Sand Rock Farm has attracted groups who seek a unique, private accommodations where they can gather with family and friends for retreats, vacations and special occasions.
