My boyfriend and I decided it was time for our first B&B and we were not disappointed. Kris, the owner, was the most wonderful host! Our first day there in the Morning Glory room my boyfriend proposed to me over a lovely bottle of wine that greeted us in the room when we arrived. Needless to say the rest of...

This B&B was appointed beautifully, our hostess was a pleasure to talk with & attentive to all our needs. She anticipates the needs of her guests with perfection. The breakfast was the best I have experienced at a B&B. The goat cheese souffle surpassed my expectation of any breakfast experience. The rooms were beautifully decorated to the time period of...

My husband and I just returned from a Northern California trip and we stayed at 4 different great hotels and inns as we traveled. Our favorite place was Sand Rock Farm! We stayed in the Sun Porch room which was lovely with a spacious bedroom, bath and sitting room. Many windows brought the beautiful outside scenery right into the room....

Apart from the fact that there was no tv available, we couldn't fault the room, or the bathroom (with jacuzzi bath big enough for 2). The bed was exceptionally comfortable with the softest pillows you could ever imagine. Breakfast was lovely and different. Although my husband would have appreciated more meat! I was quite happy with it and generally it...

We made a reservation and there was a mix-up with our email communication. So, our original choice to stay in the Sun Porch Suite was booked by another guest during the confusion. Kris made this right by offering The Hidden Garden Suite to us instead at the same price as the Sun Porch and threw in a bottle of Roudon...

Sand Rock Farm is a gem, a Craftsman-style inn that dates back to the 1800s, when the property was a winery. Innkeeper Kris Sheehan has surrounded the inn with winding paths through lovely gardens, shaded by stunning redwoods. Our room was large, very comfortable, with wifi access. Breakfasts were ample, delicious. Kris is a fount of information about the house...

Historic farmhouse, tasteful antiques,gourmet breakfast, peaceful gardens among redwood groves made our stay at sand rock farm an amazing memory. Kris is warm and accommodating, adding unexpected touches like fresh flowers and homegrown raspberries to our breakfast. She is also an expert on the best restaurants and places to see. It feels like going home for the holidays!

This was one of the most relaxing, peaceful, tranquil places I've stayed. We were warmly greeted upon our arrival and shown to our room, which contained fresh flowers. The host is gracious. Each morning starts out splendidly arriving to the dining room table which looks out into the garden , and birds feeding just outside the window. We were served...

Sand Rock Farm Bed and Breakfast is a beautiful place to unwind and rejuvenate. I recently stayed on an Sunday night (Mother's Day) in Spring. Surprisingly, the entire place was empty and I had the whole house to myself. What a treat! Gardens - In the afternoon I sat in the upper and lower garden areas. Both gardens have small...
