We offer one romantic tree house like cottage at our mountaintop retreat in Sonoma's wine country. Privacy and natural beauty surround this exquisite property. Take advantage of the many regional parks, one within walking distance from our retreat. All the amenities of a five star hotel in a simple studio cottage in the trees.

This romantic Treehouse like cottage is located on 5 acres in the mountains above the Valley of the Moon in Sonoma County. 

Ideally situated between the towns of Kenwood (15 minutes from our retreat) and East Santa Rosa, our retreat is in the very heart of Sonoma's wine country.

The Bella Luna Retreat features a waterfall, that flows winter thru spring and a suspension bridge and a star gazer dwelling on a cliff. It is often used by honeymooners - for anniversaries and birthday celebrations. See more photos at Bella Luna Retreat. we use org url.

The retreat is only 15 to 35 minutes to some of the best wineries and dining in the region.

We prefer to give our guests complete privacy, so it is rare that we see guests except when checking them in. 

We are sorry we cannot accept pets - as so many of our guests have allergies.

This Treehouse like cottage has scores of followers. We have had many people propose marriage at the star house (a small dwelling for star watching and sunset views).

Please note you do not need to cross the bridge to get to cottage.

We do not have wifi - but we do offer high speed internet access via an ethernet cable is in the cottage for direct access to our high speed internet connection. Guests with newer macbooks will need an adaptor.

There are two cats that live in our main house and do room the property. We make sure they are NOT allowed in the cottage.

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING BIG AND SPACIOUS this is NOT the place. The cottage is a small studio with a large wrap around deck. There is a kitchenette in the cottage as well as a jacuzzi tub for two people.

In our 4-5 years of travel together, no experience has impressed us more than the Bella Luna Mountain Retreat. On a sunny Friday in spring we escaped about an hour north of SF to Santa Rosa, made a few turns off the more traveled streets and found ourselves a world away traversing the canyons in the Valley of the Moon. It was there we found our treehouse bungalow quietly tucked away in the greenery. Carolyn and Gary were there to meet us, were available for anything we needed, and were super friendly and really cool! Hot tubbing under the stars, hanging with their two big kitties on the rocks of the waterfall, and a reading session at dusk before stargazing are memories we won’t soon forget. The walking proximity to trails, and the 5 minute drive down the road to the main street means you’re never too far from any activities (we saw Jack London’s property, and enjoyed a few wineries). This will not be our last stay at the Bella Luna Mountain Retreat, maybe next time we’ll go on the full moon to get the most out of the telescopes in the Starhouse or enjoy one of the hiking trails in walking distance of the treehouse. Thank you again Carolyn and Gary for sharing your truly magical property with us.

This was the perfect setting to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Carolyn and Gary were gracious hosts and obviously are devoted to providing guests with an amazing experience. I hesitate to leave such a great review because we are already plotting our next visit and don’t want to see this place become too popular :)! The location was great, beautiful surroundings and the treehouse was stunning! Will be back!

Response from Carolyn, the Host, on July 1st, 2018

Response from the Host, Carolyn, on July 1st, 2018 It was a true JOY to host Amy and her hubby. Gary took them sailing and we made them dinner last night and really loved spending time with them. I was deeply touched by Amy's gushing over our retreat. I have never met anyone so overflowing with praise and delight in our mountaintop oasis. Super great people - we highly recommend to other hosts.
