Relax and rejuvenate your senses in a comfy, cozy and spacious 20 foot off-grid yurt. Wake up to the sunrise out your window and the site of Mount Hood and three other mountains on a clear day. Fall asleep to the site of the rising moon and the stars, enjoy the sounds of wildlife mixed with interesting sounds from the farm. Even the clouds feel dynamic and special here.

This space has everything you need to enjoy time away from the city. Elk Moon has a secluded feel in a meadow at the top of a mountain surrounded by forest, but w/ neighbors not terribly far away. Enjoy coffee and meals inside on a basic two-burner camp stove or drive a short distance to town. 

A charming and clean composting toilet is located a few yards from the yurt. It is always cleaned in between campers. 

With hiking right outside your doorsteps and fantastic mountain views, Elk Moon is ideal for nature lovers.

Elk Moon provides peace, comfort & absolute beauty to it's guests. Our yurt at Elk Moon offered a nice sized comfortable bed with many blankets, a wood burning fireplace that kept us very warm throughout the night, even with the low reaching 34. a fully stocked cooking area (propane stove, cooking utensils, pots, pans, water kettle, etc), 5 gallons of potable water for drinking, cooking, and cleaning, plenty of books and boardgames, a super clean compost bathroom only steps away & a hefty sized portable battery to charge our smaller electronics. Janna & company made sure we had no issues getting to our site safely & enjoying our time while visiting. We'll be back soon, as Elk Moon is a really wonderful place.

Staying at Elk Moon was an absolute dream. I booked my stay as a reward for a successful wedding season and went off the grid by myself for 3 days. There was not a soul in sight. Every once in a while you could hear a car coming up the gravel road. But, other than that it was completely silent. The outhouse is just a few steps from the front door. It's about 20 minutes to the nearest store, which is nice because I ran out of wood for the wood stove. It got REALLY DARK pretty early. They have a couple super bright lamps for you to use, but they were way too bright for me. So, if you are light-sensitive, definitely bring candles or your own lamp.

Stayed here with my daughter in October and had a really great time. It was just for one night but we'd definitely stay again. Had great luck the day/night we arrived with the fire, but for some reason, we couldn't get one to stay lit the morning after, so we were pretty cold and stayed in bed all morning doing crafts together.

Very nice, not to far from town but far enough to feel out in the country. Nice views and the yurt was clean and cozy and not too old. The bed was not to my liking, my only complaint.

Elk Moon feels amazingly secluded and disconnected from the busyness of city life... it feels like it's MUCH further out in nature, away from any city, than it actually is, but with the convenience of not actually being that far out.

The yurt is fantastic, well set up with everything you need. It's secluded enough that you essentially feel like you're all alone. In fact, if you don't need anything you won't even need to interact with the owners. The view is amazing, and walking around the gravel roads in the area is absolutely beautiful.

I was looking to get away from people, technology, and the busyness and distraction of daily life, and Elk Moon was exactly what I hoped it would be. No internet access (though I still had great cell reception, in case you need to be reachable), no hum and glow of city noises and lights. (Also no fridge; plan accordingly!)

Actually, it's a pretty great mix of camping and glamping... the rusticity of camping, but with a comfortable bed and a wood stove, for those of us whose bodies can't handle sleeping on the ground anymore.

The air is clean and fresh and cool, and every breath feels healing. It was exactly the rest and restoration I needed. Thank you!

Absolutely gorgeous scenery! The yurt was very comfortable and the hosts were great at communicating. Washing dishes was quite the adventure but we were able to muddle through. Amazing stay, will be back!

My Girlfriend fell in love with this place 😊 it was a perfect gift! Despite the bad directions that Google map gave us.

Thank you so much for coming! Good to know about google maps-we'll add that to our welcome instructions! When you come back (and for others reading) Apple maps has always been reliable. :) Thanks again for being great guests, we hope to see you again!
