About This Listing
This Earthen hut was built using Adobe bricks from the property. It has a living roof with grass and herbs growing to make wheat grass juice. This round hut has beautiful stain glass windows, an earthen floor, and a rocket stove which provides a heated bed.
It was built by sculptor Miguel Elliott of Living Earth Structures, and is a one of a kind structure. The thick walls provide natural air conditioning, and feels very good inside.
It is located just minutes away from excellent restaurants, wineries, and the Russian River. Access to the pool, sauna, hot tub and kitchen available. The hut has an adobe oven outside for baking pizzas or for an outdoor fireplace.
Also on the property, is an exotic animal sanctuary with Ocelots, Servals, and a bob cat which you can pet. We also have Emu's, African Crown Cranes, Peacocks, Alpacas, Parrots and a Cockatoo you can hold.
Pictures don't do this structure justice. You must experience this for yourself. You are sure to have a magically memorable experience.
When you stay in the Hobbit Hut, you will have access to the hot tub, sauna, pool, game room with billiards and ping pong. We can offer you a tour of the exotic animals as well. You can use our kitchen to cook your meals if you like. There is an outdoor shower very near the Hobbit Hut. The bathroom is next to that. They are less than a minute walk from the hut. You can use the fire pit as well and the wood fired oven outside the hut.
Interaction with Guests
We usually show the guests to the hut, as it is a little tricky to find, being in the woods. We also offer a tour of the grounds once the guests have settled in, often the following morning.
The town of Geyserville is very small and quaint, everything is within walking distance. There are 2 great restaurants in town, a little cafe, the best old hardware store ever and 2 little convenience stores. It is just minutes away from the Russian river. There are wineries all over to enjoy wine tasting.
There is a bus stop right outside which takes you down to Santa Rosa or north to Cloverdale
Other Things to Note
The Hobbit Hut is definitely one of a kind. For those of you who are familiar with the concept of Earthing, the mattress is on an Earth pad so you are being grounded as you sleep, which is very healthy.
No fires allowed in huts and we are pet friendly with supervising owners. We require owners to pick up after their pets and supervise their animal friends. We have exotic cats and birds at Isis Oasis and offer free tours.
Absolutely beautiful! The hobbit hut was outstanding! Extremely clean and comfortable. The outdoor shower was amazing! :) Tracy was a very kind host. There are so many fun things to see and do around the property. Beautiful pool and spa to relax in. Exotic cats and birds to view. I really loved it there! Thank you Tracy for your hospitality! Can't wait to come back!
They did a great job showing us around and shared the history of the place. They made us feel really at home and welcome. Great place and would recommend it to others
Great stay in the Hobbit Hut, such a unique cozy room. The Oasis is the perfect place to relax and stretch the legs after days in the car. We met De Traci and a baby emu, and got up close to some cats and a very friendly cockatiel ?
The whole place has a very relaxed, healthy and friendly vibe.
We felt very welcome and everything was as promised. The location was great, ver close to town. We like having all the animals around, and our hut was cozy and nice.
Loved staying in the Hobbit Hut. It was cozy and awesome. Hostess was great, and showed us around and we met the animals on the property. Only complaint we might have had was the bathroom located near the Hut. It was a little dirty, but everything worked fine. It appeared that the property is in the process doing some needed maintenance. All in all, I would recommend a stop here if you are in the area.
Fantastic - exactly as advertised. Rustic with a great vibe. I'll be back!

About the Host, DeTraci
I'm the director of the Isis Oasis Sanctuary, a beautiful and magical retreat center and lodge in the heart of the Alexander Valley wine country in Sonoma County.I worked very closely with Loreon Vigne, who owned the Retreat Center for 35 years, and who unfortunately recently passed away. She was a San Franciscan where she created a line of giftware and jewelry and came to the country to retire in 1978 on a 10 acre plot of land in beautiful Alexander Valley. She spent this time creating art and beauty on her property which has a number of interesting buildings of historic significance including a 600 year old heritage tree. She dedicated the land to the ancient Egyptian Goddess Isis, otherwise known as Mother Earth. Instead of retiring, she used her time making her property a living art project. We are a non-profit organization housing exotic cats and birds of many species including a vivarium of interesting insects and small reptiles. There is also an art gallery for her artwork on the property as well as a gift bazaar offering ancient Egyptian altar pieces. There is a permaculture garden and labyrinth on the property to enjoy. We have a pool and spa, Isis meditation temple and a redwood walled theater where concerts/plays/films are showcased, plus some cob structures built of local earth. Please come and visit us at our unique peaceful sanctuary...I look forward to meeting you.
