About Property Manager
I'm honored to manage this beautiful property. It is quite possibly the loveliest place in all of wine country, and I love helping guests experience it. This estate has been owned by the same family for several years. It is exquisitely maintained and professionally managed.

What makes this Villa unique
The 150 acre property is truly unique. You feel you're worlds away, but we are within short driving distance of several wine country towns.
Pool / Spa
PERFECT SONOMA GETAWAY
We stayed at the Moon Mountain Retreat for a 3 nights for a bachelorette party and had the most wonderful time! We rented the main house as well as the Sunset Suite to accommodate 19 people. We could not have asked for a better time. The house has breathtaking views with a gorgeous wrap around porch. We were able to enjoy the pool, hammock and played games in the yard. It was the perfect place to stay and we could not recommend it enough. Plus the Property Manager, Rebecca, was incredibly responsive and easy to work with!
Awesome views! A true amazing retreat 😎🍇🍷
We rented Moon Mountain Retreat with the cottage and owners suite for a college reunion, had eight couples/ families comfortably stay. Well appointed kitchen and bedrooms bathrooms with appliances and dishes. We walked down the road for our workouts and quite close to vineyards . Awesome experience a must repeat for another reunion.
Amazing house for a group
We celebrated our friend's birthday here with a group of 13 of us in late November, just a month after the Sonoma fires. While there's some evidence of fire damage on the hills, it didn't detract from the amazing view from this beautiful home. The sunsets on the deck were incredible, and the house was perfect for hosting a large group - everyone has their own rooms, but plenty of common space indoors and out for us to gather. We had a great time visiting nearby wineries. I will definitely be going back!
Moon Mountain was amazing! #SonomaStrong
Thank you for a magical weekend in wine country. The home was large and well appointed and absolutely perfect for our couples trip away. We visited several wineries, restaurants, and shops and although we enjoyed every stop - nothing was as beautiful and peaceful as the views from the deck at Moon Mountain.
We're so happy we decided not to cancel our trip after we heard about the fires. Everyone in town was so appreciative and thankful for our visit.
We're already planning a return trip to Moon Mountain!
We had an amazing time at Moon Mountain! It is an incredible house perfect for groups of friends or family. We had a group of 14 and had plenty of room and everyone felt very comfortable. The views are breath taking! We watched the sunset every night. We all fell in love with this house and are already planning our next trip. Driving up to the house is even an exciting and gorgeous experience. Hiking around the grounds, grilling and eating dinner out on the deck, and just relaxing in the yard were all just amazing. In our mind, there was only one problem with this house, you had to leave it.
Unique, beautiful, and private
14 family members in 3 generations from 2-70. Non-stop fun in pool, on veranda, water balloons on the grass, meals together, TV, board games, s'mores in the fire pit, ping pong. Huge house has plenty of room for each person to get away or be with others. Modern amenities but not so fancy that you can't relax and be comfortable. Unbelievable view! Warm, with amazing fog patterns and breezes. Only downside was weak wi-fi and cell phone service.
Overlooking a world-class winery, the property is conveniently located minutes from over 40 wineries in the Sonoma Valley, yet close to town. Enjoy easy access to wine tasting, sight seeing, shopping in the beautiful Sonoma Square, restaurants from 5 star cuisine to local burger joints, The Sonoma Mission Inn's world famous spa (at the bottom of our hill), the Sonoma Golf & Country Club golf course, Jack London state park in beautiful Glen Ellen, and much more!
