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.

Beautiful yurt on a secluded foothill with beautiful fall colors! The wood stove kept the yurt very warm on the chilly fall nights.

The most amazing experience
My husband and I had an absolutely phenomenal experience at Elk Moon! The yurt is comfortable and adorable. Janna thought of everything her guests would need including providing firewood for the wood burning stove (which does a phenomenal job keeping the yurt warm at night), having water available and providing a charger box to charge phones and flashlights. The location is simply stunning. The view out the front door looks over a beautiful valley and out to Mt Hood. The property feels peaceful and secluded. It was a perfect halfway point between Portland and Tillamook National Forest for hiking and to the coast! We HIGHLY recommend booking at Elk Moon

Beautifully decorated yurt with games and books. Charging station and lanterns were nice after a long day. Cleanest outhouse I've used, but the wasps took over the rest of the outdoor area.

The yurt was everything we could have wanted and more, situated on a beautiful piece of property overlooking forest and hills. We went to sleep to the sound of crickets chirping. Loved the very clean outhouse.
