Elk Moon is a single yurt perched in a open clearing above the forest. Overlooking Mt Hood, Mt St Helens, Mt Adams and on the clearest days-Mt Jefferson. It’s a lovely open space where we’ve been joined by deer, elk, bald eagles, osprey and more. There’s an intimate relationship with the clouds here-sometimes wrapped in them, sometimes sitting on top of them-but everyday is dramatic and stunningly beautiful. Learn more about this land: 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. Relax and rejuvenate your senses in a comfy, cozy and spacious 20 foot off-grid yurt.

Elk Moon is a beautiful Yurt. Equipped with everything you need to cook, super comfy futon and bed inside. You can't see much of a view from the yurt anymore due to tree growth, but Janna told us we could walk around and we got some great ridge views from that. You can see the main house from the yurt but it's far enough away to feel private and secluded. Thanks Janna!

We loved staying here! The out house was so cute and super clean! The yurt was so beautiful inside! We absolutely loved how private it felt but also safe since we knew the house was just a few miles away. They had dogs that were running around. I was a little afraid of them cause they seemed a little aggressive but that could be cause I’m just not really a dog person hahaha however they where INCREDIBLY good guard dogs and made us feel super safe when it came to wildlife out there. They ended up barking in the middle of the night and I assumed they scared something off that potentially could’ve been dangerous hahha. I would definitely stay here again!

We had a great stay! It was pretty hot when we went and the yurt definitely heated up, but cooled off decently at night. The bed was really comfortable and it was great having a small table and chairs outside where we could cook and eat.

We stayed here for a couple of days with our two little boys. They loved seeing the stars and staying in a "real roundhouse". This out of the way site is warm, welcoming, and fun. The boys found all sorts of mushrooms and learned about local flora and fauna. Mama of our crew traveled into Tigard for work (traveling veterinarian) and found the commute beautiful and mostly traffic free.
