Charming B&B

5 on October 01, 2016

What a beautiful, peaceful home! My daughter and I stayed in the Farmhouse Suite in the main house and we loved each having our own Queen bed (with the softest sheets I've ever slept on!) and the quaint sitting room to share. Enjoying coffe on the spacious porch before breakfast, I watched hummingbirds and butterflies. Breakfast was fantastic and we didn't need to eat until dinner. We loved exploring along Hwy 11; state parks, antiquing, beautiful mountain views. We loved all the animals on the farm, too.I am anxious to go back and bring the entire family! Highly recommend! Kathy & Sarah

Perfect B&B in every way

5 on May 03, 2016

Cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed staying at Sunrise Farm Bed and Breakfast. They have thought of everything. Anything that is not already provided will most likely be taken care of upon request. We spent a week there with our entire family and cannot think of how the experience might be improved. Julie, Jeff and staff made everyone feel right at home. Will definitely stay there again when in the area.

None better! Quiet farm with friendly people and animals.

WOW! Have we found our perfect get-away spot? Yes, we have. The Sunrise Farm B&B is the most comfortable and delightful places we stay on a regular basis. Our family has stayed in B&B inns on three continents, 14 or 15 countries, and at least 35 states in the US and have found none better than Sunrise. The rooms are comfortable and cozy, the breakfast to die for, and the hosts among the most personable we have ever met. Top it off with llamas, fat-belly pigs, horses, goats, cats, birds and more birds, and being in the country, away from city sounds and lights, and you're near to heaven. David and Madonna Athens, GA

Home away from home...

My friend and I were involved in a fishing tournament on Lake Jocassee last weekend and wanted to stay someplace comfortable and within a short drive of the lake. Julie and Jeff provide the perfect spot for us. The location is perfect for the lake area and the local boat landing. The house was spotless and very well suited our needs. We were not able to eat their great breakfast due to the time of our tournament but, Julie had a perfect meal ready for us to take with us when we needed to leave that morning. These are two great people with a great place to stay. We will go back there again! My buddy and I are now wanting to take our wives to see it is well. They will love it!

Innkeeper Response
Goodness! Thank you! Thank you for spreading the word about your experience here at Sunrise Farm. We look forward to meeting your wife soon! :-)

Wonderful family getaway

5 on October 04, 2015

My whole family had a wonderful vacation at sunrise bed and breakfast. The animals are very friendly and my 2 year old son had a blast feeding them!! He's still talking about the animals and looking for them here at our house. Julie and Jeff were v eu friendly and gave us superb serve! The breakfasts were also delicious!! We stayed 4 nights and had a great time in our cottage! We felt very welcome and comfortable. The town is super small but very close to other towns and they will print out directions to wherever you would like to go. We drove about 20 minutes and had a fabulous hike to a secluded waterfall. It was so peaceful!

Sweet retreat

5 on August 04, 2015

I booked a one night stay for my mother, daughter and I as we traveled in the area. We were so warmly received and immediately felt "at home." Julie is the most gracious hostess: sweet, kind, welcoming. She showed us around, explained all the amenities, and made sure that all our needs (and wants!) were met. She provided snacks, beverages, and a continual supply of delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies. She gave us great recommendations and directions for restaurants. On the farm are lots of animals, and my daughter spent time with all of them while Mom and I sat on the charming porch and read. It was the respite that we needed. Julie blessed us by sharing herself and her home. We had a wonderful stay at Sunrise Farm and can't wait to go back.

This b and b is the perfect place for relaxation and romance. The corn crib cottage is absolutely adorable and perfect for a romantic evening. The breakfast at the main house is delicious. The property is beautiful and the farm animals love visitors. The owners are so sweet. They made our anniversary extra special with personal touches. Can't wait to go back!

I would recommend this place which is in beautiful condition of a late 1800's farm home that has ALL the comforts of HOME and MORE! I LOVE their setting with the trees surrounding their gorgeous wrap around front porch which just asks you to sit and relax and enjoy the surrounding scenery and sounds. Breakfast was like eating in a 5 star restaurant!! Down to the details of the breakfast looking to exquisite to eat!

Innkeeper Response

Great place!

I am so glad we found the Sunrise Farm! The June Rose Garden Cottage was perfect for our family of four. Everything exceeded our expectations. The location is perfect for day trips to the area waterfalls. We added the picnic lunch for our excursion, and loved that as well. We've many pleasant memories from this stay, and hope to return again, and again.
