About this listing
This uniquely constructed Gingerbread House at the Isis Oasis Retreat Center is very cozy inside. Two can sleep downstairs and one can comfortably sleep in the loft. It is decorated with stain glass windows with LED lights inside the glass and uniquely sculpted by Miguel Elliott of Living Earth Structures. Earthen trees are wrapping around the hut making it feel as though it were being embraced by the trees. It is next to the Hobbit hut, and has a wood-fired oven outside, with a picnic table. Close access to the pool, sauna and hot tub. Tours of the exotic animals on the property available.
Just a 3 minute walk to a great café called Geyserville Mud, and a 10 minute walk to the river.
There is a bus stop right outside the property for easy access to public transit.
Come ready for an Earthen adventure!
No smoking indoors
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.
