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.

Lemon Moon Cottage is incredibly adorable and I loved staying there. Robin and Michelle were very accommodating and while I didn't get to meet them in person, every interaction I've had with them has been nothing but pleasant. The cottage is surrounded by nature on all sides, and is perfect for a little getaway.
The Lemon Moon Cottage was perfect for my needs...a four night stay while attending a workshop in Sebastopol. It is exactly where they say it is---Sebastopol...which was 5 minutes from center of town. It was a lovely, perfect stay! Robin and Michelle are super-accommodating to one's every need. I loved Ruby the cat. The bed was very comfortable too! Peace and quiet, wonderful nature sounds..chickens next door, birds, even something like a peacock in the distance. I would stay there again, most definitely! Thanks so much, Robin and Michelle, for your hospitality.
What a lovely, comfy space! We met Robin & Ruby the calico, and both were friendly and welcoming. We city people appreciated the calm and quiet (we heard so many birds!), as well as the wine and lemon bars. And oh, the bathtub under the skylight! The perfect place for our 24 hour honeymoon. Thank you, Robin & Michelle!
Lemon Moon Cottage is great - looks just like the pictures and once you are there super comfy (plush carpet, plush bed, plush towels, high-quality coffee). Michelle and Robin had that perfect balance of being very friendly and available; yet absolutely allowed me to do my own thing. I was looking for a very tranquil, "recharge" type of weekend and that is exactly what I got. When I fantasize about having my own little place in Sonoma county - this is exactly what I think of!
Thanks ladies - it was such a treat - one I am hoping to do at least once a year :)
Lemon Moon Cottage ended up being THE best possible place my girlfriend and I could have found in Sebastopol possible. The space matched the photos and description really well. If anything, it was nicer than the photos! A big open room with an electric fire, beautiful back yard, and a huuuge bathroom with a great soaking bath tub. As soon as we came in we found a note with two wine glasses letting us know there was a bottle of white in the fridge (Michelle and Robin checked ahead of time to see if we preferred red, white, or a non-alcoholic cider), two lemon bars that had been baked with ingredients from their own garden, and a really well thought out list of places to eat, things to do, and local info we wouldn't have known otherwise. All this, plus the fact that it was a quick drive to down town Sebastopol makes it a spot i'll definitely be recommending to my friends in the future.
This place was FANTASTIC. It was a cool and homey cottage that wasn't attached to their home. It was good sized, and had all the amenities you would expect (TV, Wi-Fi, etc.) had a nice large bathroom area, etc. It had nice rustic charm with wood paneling throughout. The pictures are exactly what the main room is like, and they left us nice information listing some of their favorite places in the area. I don't want to make future people expect the same perks, so I will just say that Robin and Michelle gave us several treats to make us feel very welcome. If we were coming back sometime, we would definitely stay here again! The one thing I will say, only because others have said it, is that the bath/shower room doesn't have blinds. It isn't a big deal because the back of their property is all woods, and actually it feels nice to have a big skylight and window view of the woods while you shower, but if for some reason you find that off-putting, you should know about it.
