About the property

Perfect for large groups, corporate retreats, family reunions (no big events)

With spectacular mountain-top views overlooking vineyards, this wooded, hillside resort on over 150 breathtaking acres offers utter privacy, relaxation and solitude. Relax on the wrap-around deck or float in the pool overlooking beautiful Sonoma Valley.

Gorgeous outdoor pool (not heated) is lovely during the warmer months.

The estate is large, with plenty of space for everyone to curl up with a book or splinter off to enjoy talking over a glass of wine.

Some favorite spots to spend time:

- Curling up by the fireplace in the great room

- Lounging in a wicker chair on the deck wrapping the house on 3 sides

- Swinging in the hammock or sitting in the Adirondack chairs on the large lawn

- Lounging by the outdoor pool (unheated, open for swimming Memorial Day - Labor Day)

- Enjoying quiet time in the Owners Unit (optional & additional), which has its own private deck

Furnished in warm yet sophisticated 'Sonoma Style,' the property features a dramatic great room including living, dining and kitchen in one large, open space, with panoramic views of the entire valley below. All seven bedrooms are appointed with the finest linens, down pillows and luxurious comforters. Each bathroom has its own character, each with lots of charm.

This home is perfect for large groups; from celebrating family reunions to corporate retreats to housing everyone in a wedding party under one roof. There is no other place like it on Earth.

***FIRE STATUS: We were very lucky and the immediate property and structures were untouched. There is no smoke smell, and the views are still lovely. I added some photos of the scenery post-fire, since some fire damage is still visible. Each time it rains it gets more and more green! ***

About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2000

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We can't thank-you enough for allowing us to use your house this weekend for the family to stay at during the wedding!!

Awesome views! A true amazing retreat 😎🍇🍷

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Moon Mountain is Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this amazing estate. We were a large group and it had everything we needed. We felt we weren't too far away from the wineries we were visiting and the grounds were just stunning. Pictures don't do it justice. I left the home wanting to plan my trip back. I HAVE to go back. The view and grounds were just too amazing. This home will always hold special memories to our group of friends.
