Glen Ellen House Rental Photos and Description

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.

About Terry Roberts

Bryan Tedrick and I have two children, Nathalie, 27, and Jakob, 24. I retired in 2013 after teaching at the local middle school for many years. Currently, I am working as an education consultant in the Valley. Bryan is a sculptor, beginning work on his latest Burning Man commission. If you would like to see more of Bryan's work, check out his web site.

Bryan also designed and built the Moon House.

We purchased the property in 1990.

Terry Roberts purchased this house in 1990

Why Terry Roberts chose Glen Ellen

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).

What makes this house unique

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.

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 ...

Magical Moon House

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fabulous! Amazing architecture; wonderfully appointed. A real gem, within walking distance to great restaurants and just a short drive to Sonoma. Jack London's State Park also close by, which is another treat. Terry is a wonderful host, and her husband, Bryan, is a brilliant artist and architect. It doesn't get any better!

Fabulous, artistic retreat that's close to lots of great places!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a few days here and had a REALLY hard time leaving; it was perfect! We were impressed from the moment we pulled in the driveway. There is so much artistic creativity in this house starting at the front gate and continuing all over the house! Terry was a fabulous hostess as well and her hospitality far exceeded anything we could have hoped for! The house was immaculately clean from top to bottom and very well maintained. The kitchen was stocked with lots of top of the line equipment and brands also. They literally thought of everything one might need to have a perfect stay. You could definitely cook an amazing gourmet meal here! There are lots of cute places to walk to from this house and Sonoma is around a ten minute drive to the town square. Napa's pretty close too; 20-30 min drive at the most. It's such a beautiful drive between Glen Ellen and Napa that it really is a pleasure. My husband and I will DEFINITELY stay here again; staying at The Moon House was the best part of our vacation! Thanks so much Terry!

It was absolutely perfect! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not stay anywhere else!

The house is close to restaurants and the owners are so helpful and it is fully equipped with everything that you could need.

Don't stay in Napa or Sonoma...stay here and drive! You will not be disappointed!

Loved it!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved the artistry and love that went into building this awesome house! Terry was awesome too, with all of the maps, booklets, personal suggestions on where to eat, shop, and visit. We felt right at home - many lovely personal touches, from great bedding to fully stocked kitchen. The location of the Moon House couldn't have been any better - we were centrally located in the heart of wine (and beer) country - we visited Lauginitas, Bear Republic, Russian River, & Mikkeller on one day, then Sonoma another, followed by Napa, we even found a half marathon to run while we were there - it was our first trip in this area, but certainly not our last!!!

Perfect for Honeymoon in Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

We can't stop smiling about our stay at the Moon House. My husband and I stayed for 3 nights while taking a Honeymoon in wine country, and everything exceeded our expectations. Terry was so helpful and accommodating throughout the entire process of planning our stay. We arrived to a handwritten note and a bottle of local wine! We loved the unique setting and proximity to town for easy market trips and dinner spots. The kitchen is fully stocked - even had coffee and tea! We also loved the outdoor patio area for evenings under the stars. We spent one day at wineries in Napa and another day at wineries in Sonoma, but the house is a great centralized location from which to explore both regions. Terry also provided maps, brochures, and suggestions for hiking and dining in the area.

We will definitely be back!! It's such a special place. It was the highlight of our week in California because it was a unique way to experience the life in wine country. We felt at home :) and well taken care of throughout the stay with plenty of towels, bedding, etc. We recommend checking out The Fig Cafe in town as well as the Glen Ellen Market to stock up on picnic lunch for winery hopping.

Loved everything about the Moon House and the warm hospitality.
