A cozy, private and romantic getaway in the heart of western Sonoma County!

The Space

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 (email hidden). 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.

Cheers,
Robin and Michelle

  • I loved this cottage - it was cozy and owners thought of all details. Comfy bed, nice couch, bathroom, bathtub with a view. I especially loved back porch with rocking chair where you could sit in the sun and look out at the oak trees, dry creek bed and tall trees blowing in the wind. It was an excellent retreat. Highly recommend it. Wouldn't change a thing.

  • This cottage experience was awesome. The pictures that we'd seen made the cottage look (email hidden) to stay in Sonoma County, but the actual cottage was much more impressive than what we initially thought we were getting. The wooden paneling and lighting in the cottage were well done and did a great job to set a romantic ambiance. Everything in the cottage was very thoughtfully laid out when we arrived and we were greeted with awesome lemon bars and a great bottle of wine. What's more, they had also a fully stocked selection of teas, drinking water, and bathroom supplies (like floss...floss!) that they'd given us access to.

    Location-wise, the cottage is only a couple minutes drive from downtown Sebastopol. My wife and i have become enamored with this place.

  • Lemon Moon Cottage was just lovely, cozy and quiet. I didn't meet Robin but I did meet Michelle who was delightful. In the morning before I left I enjoyed a nice long soak in the big bathtub, follow by coffee (email hidden) on the back deck. Robin and Michelle bake the lemon bars which are very yummy.

  • This was a nice getaway place and the cottage was well stocked with towels, toiletries, and bedding, as advertised, plus a couple of nice extras. We met Michelle and Robin and they graciously made sure our needs were met without undue intrusion.

  • Thank you to our gracious hosts. The red wine and homemade lemon bars were a delightful welcome gift. We saw deer in the backyard our first evening. Thanks again for a restful and memorable getaway.

  • What a sweet getaway!! We had a 'looked forward to' weekend that is now a 'looked back upon' fond memory. Lemon Moon is right in the middle of all the wine, art and beautiful country but tucked in a little fold that is so private and quiet. Robin and Michelle are great hosts: a little wine, fab lemon bars and all the comfy/thoughtful extras like a take-one/leave-one library that make an airbnb stay another whole part of a wonderful little vacation!!

    Hi Frances,
    Thanks for the suggestions, we thought the same thing and we just got two personal reading lights for the bed. No worries about the book- enjoy it and pass it on!
    Cheers,
    Robin and Michelle

  • We came to stay a the Lemon Moon Cottage to celebrate a special pair of days, and were rewarded with a special kind of place! Michelle & Robin have created a tranquil oasis. The best thing is that, not only have they made the cottage super cozy with their choices in lighting, bed, comfy couch, deep inset tub, etc., they also let nature be the real star -- they appointed their back porch with comfy deck chairs, an old lovely rug, and blankets for a restful view of a back yard full of luscious greenery (filled to the brim with sweet-sounding birds) and a perfect view of the starry sky at night. And skylights over the tub and a modest picture window next to it make it possible to enjoy these views from the comfort of a bubble bath! A relief to be here after too many months spent toiling in the city. Thank you Michelle & Robin!

    PS -- I should mention that M&R themselves were kind enough to give us absolute privacy during our stay but still friendly enough to come out & say hello as we were leaving...which to me is the perfect balance in a host!

  • Their plc are great. Very cozy n romantic ambience. Their electric heat blanket r superb! If you are a pinot noir lover, the vineyard they recommend are ideal. It a great experience for us.

  • Michelle & Robin were great to communicate with. Unfortunately, we did not make it to the rental as our friends who own a house close by invited us to stay with them. I would definitely rent from Michelle & Robin again. And, they were welcoming us with a bottle of wine or cider.

  • The hosts were very generous and even offered us afternoon check out. They answered all our questions quickly and we would recommend lemon moon to our friends.
