About Terry Roberts

Bryan Tedrick and I have two children, Nathalie, 29, and Jake, 26. 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, working 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.

Why Terry Roberts chose Sonoma County

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 ...

A Piece of Art

  • 5 of 5

The Moon House is a piece of art designed/sculpted by Bryan Tedric. It was not only beautiful but is also comfortable and well supplied with utensils and appliances. It is located in in a quiet neighborhood and very close to Sonoma regional park. Although we never met Terry (the owner), she quickly responded to the questions I had. We loved our stay and highly recommend it.
