THE MOON HOUSE : GORGEOUS, NEW, ARTISTIC RETREAT IN GLEN ELLEN

Glen Ellen House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Designed and hand built by professional sculptor, Bryan Tedrick, the Moon House is a sculptural jewel situated in the heart of historic Glen Ellen. Uniquely curvilinear in form, this intimate space is an ideal location for adventuring in the Valley of the Moon.

Restaurants, a gourmet grocery, and the Jack London Saloon are within one block of the Moon House. Take walks in the neighborhood’s regional and state parks and peruse Jack London’s Beauty Ranch. Wineries abound and the Sonoma Mission at the Sonoma Plaza is just 15 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We spent a relaxing long weekend at the delightful Moon House. It was very quiet, private, and peaceful. The kitchen was well equipped, and the small aerial reading area was a great place to sit and write on a raining afternoon. The rest of the house was clean and we really enjoyed its style and decoration. The overall design of the house gave a feeling of spaciousness and freedom. Terry's warm welcome and the invitation to visit Bryan's studio were much appreciated. One couldn't ask for a more convenient location in the center of the wine country. We look forward to our next stay ...

Bryan Tedrick and I, Terry Roberts, have been together for 30 years and have two grown children, Nathalie, 27, and Jakob, 24. I retired in 2013 after 27-years of teaching language arts, technology, and yearbook - mostly at Altimira Middle School in Sonoma. Currently, I am working as a an education consultant in the Valley. Bryan is a sculptor, beginning work on his latest Burning Man commission. To see more of Bryan's work, you can visit his website:

Bryan also designed and built the Moon House.

Terry Roberts purchased this house in 1990

Although Bryan and I both grew up in the Bay Area, we always loved visiting the wine country - both the Napa and the Sonoma Valleys. After our daughter, Nathalie, was born, we decided that it was time to move away from the city and settle in a more rural area. We picked Glen Ellen for our home because we love the small town feel, yet it has all the conveniences of a larger city...our fabulous grocery store is just down the street, along with some terrific restaurants within walking distance. (Not to mention, my bank, my post office, and my hairdresser).

We chose the specific location of our home and the Moon House because we are in the heart of the Sonoma Valley. Our home, and the Moon House, are on our quiet little street...but not far from the center of town.

TRANQUILITY IN GLEN ELLEN

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent 3 tranquil nights in the Moon House. The house was immaculate and had every amenity we needed. The owner, Terry, had provided a detailed list of sites, restaurants, and other suggestions for activities while in the Sonoma area. We went to 3 of the restaurants walking distance from the home and ate some of the best food we have ever experienced. It is also very close to some of the best wineries in Sonoma County, including Imagery, Arrowood, and Mayo just to name a few. If you are visiting Glen Ellen or even the greater Sonoma area, I highly recommend staying at the Moon House.

LOVED OUR STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the Moon House. Glen Ellen was just a short drive to Sonoma and many other towns and wineries. The Moon House was equipped beyond our expectations and close to a nice market and restaurants. The owners art being on display through out the property was also a pleasant touch. Terry was very easy to work with. We would definitely schedule again if we return to the area.

UNIQUE MODERN HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Staying @ the "Moon House" was wonderful. A modern/artistic home with all the comforts/amenities including two outdoor patios (one has a grill for outdoor cooking.) The owners were so accommodating and friendly. Complimentary bottle of wine and fresh flowers were a nice surprise upon arrival. Can't wait to come back again to enjoy this clean, comfy and great location house.

WONDERFUL GETAWAY! SO UNIQUE!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I absolutely loved our stay in the moon house. Everything was artistic, unique, clean, and attention to detail was like no other. They had anything we could have possibly needed prepared. The stay was so relaxing and fun. We loved being in walking distance to some good food and small tasting rooms as well in the charming town of Glen Ellen. I would definitely recommend this property.

PEACEFUL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
The Moonhouse is a perfect hideaway. It was just 2 of us staying here & we had plenty of room. Glen Ellen is a quaint little town. We will be staying here again on our return trip....loved it !! We preferred Sonoma over Napa..We wish we had stayed longer & you will too ;)

AMAZING RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Tom and I stayed at the Moon Houseand it was exactly what terry had said onthe vrbo site. Close to all of wine country, Glen Ellen market and restaurants are awesome! Centrally located to drive to Bodega bay, Nappa , Muir woods, Armstrong Park and of coarse Sonoma Wine Trail. The Patio in back was a nice retreat to sip wine and barbecue after all day on the road! Amazing Time!
