About this listing
A cozy, private and romantic getaway in the heart of western Sonoma County!
We welcome you to beautiful Sonoma County and Sebastopol, California. Land of plenty, and famous for our once prosperous Gravenstein apples and our overflowing vineyards. Western Sonoma County has a wealth of both natural beauty and intriguing activity.
Our separate and private guest cottage is a cozy, rustic-chic space that will make you feel miles away from the business of everyday life. It has a four poster queen size bed and a living room area with a flat screen TV, DVD player, microwave and mini refrigerator. Coffee maker with local organic Taylor-Made coffee provided, as well as herb and black teas, and popcorn for your movie watching pleasure. Also full bath with sunken tub and sky lights.
Sit under the stars on the back deck and watch the moon rise above you in this serene country setting. We have an acre to roam with a stream in the winter months and a wood bridge that crosses it. Lots of lemon, apple, persimmon and oak trees.
Downtown Sebastopol is 2 miles away with numerous delicious restaurants, a fabulous indie movie theater, thrift stores, antique shops, music venues and brew pubs. Now open is the brand new Barlow Center. A mecca of food, drink and the best local wines and coffee houses you'll find anywhere. We provide names and addresses of our favorite places for you. We are also available to answer any questions you have about our lovely piece of California. We are happy to share, and are dedicated to the Airbnb way of travel and adventure.
There is even an old train depot with a train car converted into a wine bar. A truly eclectic, artistic and diverse community awaits you in Sebastopol California and you are only 20 minutes from the beautiful Pacific Ocean & Bodega Bay. Come stay in the Lemon Moon Cottage and relax and refresh.

We are locals in Sonoma County; Sebastopol in particular, and have been for over 40 years.

Robin now spends her time homeschooling their son, and running the Lemon Moon Cottage. Michelle has been in the banking/financial industry for 28 years, and runs the Sebastopol branch of Community First Credit Union. We love raising our 8 year old son in such a diverse, accepting, and beautiful place.
