The Rising Moon Yurt is a one-of-a-kind vacation rental set in the West Sonoma County wine country backroads. Located a short distance from downtown Sebastopol, California, perched atop a hill at the end of a quiet residential lane, on a small family homestead and farm. It is truly a place to commune with nature, enjoy modern conveniences, and indulge in an unforgettable travel experience!

“In every walk with Nature one receives far more than he seeks.” ― John Muir

The space
Welcome to The Rising Moon Yurt!

Yurt living encompasses a calming, light-filled space, inspiring and guiding those who are seeking a different kind of trip... the kind of living that encourages a deeper engagement with one’s surroundings.

The Rising Moon Yurt is perched on a southern facing hillside with sweeping views of redwood trees and vineyards. Located at the top of our property, The Rising Moon Yurt exudes the feeling of solitude. Furnished with all of the modern conveniences, and a California Modern vibe, we set out to create a unique yurt experience which has every single comfort of a boutique hotel; from making locally roasted organic coffee in the morning, choosing the perfect record to put on as the sun sets, practicing some morning yoga on the deck, or by soaking in the outdoor cast iron tub surrounded by a starry night sky. Designed with country living in mind, our hope is that you enjoy being surrounded by nature!

*Complimentary Taylor Lane Organic Coffee and Traditional Medicinals Wellness Teas*

The Rising Moon Yurt is best suited for a couple. There is a super comfy queen size canopy bed with privacy curtains, and a sleeper couch that can be used as a queen sized guest bed. Linens (and guest bed linens), sleeping eye masks, ear plugs, iron, and umbrellas are all available for your convenience. There is AC/Heating, wifi, bluetooth radio, and a smart TV (with Apple TV & Netflix).

*Tuft & Needle Mattress*

There is a full kitchen complete with an island and barstools, dining table and chairs, a new gas range, cookware and utensils, filtered drinking water from the kitchen faucet (sourced from our property's well), toaster, electric kettle, coffee grinder, coffee maker, french press, pour overs... everything needed for your morning ritual. And, of course wine glasses and barware... everything needed for entertaining your own wine and cheese happy hour!

*Heath Tile and Smeg Refrigerator/Freezer*

The yurt has lots of natural sunlight, hardwood floors, and beautiful french doors. All windows and doors have roller blinds and curtains for complete privacy. There is a ceiling fan which helps with keeping the yurt cool during hot months, and keeps the heat down during colder months. The yurt's central ceiling dome remains closed and allows sunlight in during the days and night sky views during the night. There are board games, cards, books, a turntable with records, and yoga mats.

The bath house is located outside, set upon the private deck. It has a toilet, sink, attached outdoor shower, and an outdoor cast iron soaking tub tucked under a beautiful Oak tree. In the bath house, there is a wall heater that can be turned on with a timer dial, warming up the bath house within minutes. Organic hand soap, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, towels, hair dryer, robes, and outdoor slider shoes are available for your use.

The back sun deck is a wonderful place for lounging and enjoying sweeping views of one of Kendall Jackson's Pinot Noir vineyards; observing the birds soar; watching the occasional fog rolling in over the distant hilltops; listening to the sounds of our seasonal creek; dining al fresco; or, simply watching the moon rise into a starry night.

Where you’ll be

Sebastopol, California, United States

The Rising Moon Yurt rests out in the country, and is conveniently located only a few miles (10 minute drive) from the town center of Sebastopol, which is known for it's laid-back community, natural beauty and rich agricultural heritage. Popularized by hippies during the 1960’s, a sign declaring Sebastopol a “Nuclear Free Zone” still stands downtown. Farmer's markets and independent shops all add to the community's sustainable lifestyle. Originally an apple orchard town, Sebastopol is now primarily a grape-growing region. The wineries, craft breweries, micro-distilleries, tasting rooms, and farm-to-table restaurants in the area have made Sebastopol into the sophisticated wine country destination that it is today!
Stay local, and explore all that Sebastopol has to offer...

- WINE TASTING. Too many wineries to name, but one of our favorites is Iron Horse Vineyards (take in the views and sip on some bubbly).

- Visit the downtown Barlow, a 12-acre industrial-chic outdoor market district featuring local food, wine, beer, spirits made onsite by Sonoma County artisans (including Golden State Cider, Taylor Lane Organic Coffee, Crooked Goat Brewery, Woodfour Brewery, Guayaki Yerba Mate, and Community Market).

- Hiking or visit the annual Gravenstein Apple Fair (in August) at Ragle Ranch Regional Park.

- Hang out and enjoy coffee at Hardcore Espresso, just a short drive away.

- Attend a show at the downtown HopMonk Tavern music venue.

- Hike the miles of freshwater wetlands in the Laguna Wetlands Preserve which offers trails and ample birdwatching.
For visitors looking to enjoy the wilds of the region, guests can explore all that the Sonoma Coast has to offer...

- Oysters at Hog Island Oyster Co. on Tomales Bay.

- Seafood and chowder at Bodega Bay eateries.

- Fresh bread at Wild Flour Bakery at Freestone.

- Take a stroll through the small town of Occidental and enjoy a craft beer at Barley and Hops Tavern.

- Don't forget dinner, drinks, and Bocce at the Underwood Bar and Bistro in the nearby town of Graton.
Spend the day kayaking or tubing the Russian River. Grab a Pliny the Elder at Russian River Brewery. Visit the majestic trees at Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve. Or, travel east to the Sonoma and Napa Valley regions, known for hundreds of hillside vineyards. It's all within close proximity!

Living in San Francisco we could never get bored of all of the endless possibilities of city life to be seen and explored. But, somehow we always found ourselves venturing out of the city and up to Sonoma County. We instantly fell in love with the tiny town of Sebastopol because of it’s natural setting, sustainable living, artistic community, and creative atmosphere. We are a Graphic Designer and Carpenter by trade...homesteaders, gardeners and parents by heart. Every day, we feel lucky that we get to enjoy the nature that surrounds us. A place where we can catch a breath of fresh air, admire the redwoods, listen to the animals, and care for our children. We enjoy hiking, birding, fishing, crabbing, beach going, biking, swimming, sunning, art galleries, baseball, camping, dogs, farmers markets, wine tasting, brunches, vacations, travel... you know, the usual! - Ashley & Justin (& Morgan & Ryder)
