You found it! The one and only 'Flotation B&B'!
For us, Flotation in the Sensory Deprivation Tank is a Life Style that makes our B&B a Destination Retreat for people who seek Transformation.
Our "Womb-Room" has a state of the art PathFinder Flotation Tank for your journey into inner space ... the infinite frontier! It is a warm, safe and quiet space to get in touch with your Self, to think things through, to meditate or simply catch up with your sleep ...
We prepare you WELL for your "All Night Vision Quest Float" and take at least one hour time before and after your journey into inner space to answer all your questions regarding your Flotation eXperience.
We suggest that you arrive a couple hours earlier for your Q&A and your choice of one FREE 1hr session in either one:
The FAR Infra Red Sauna to relax your body ... or
The "LifeMapping" tool to relax your mind and set your intention for your "ALL Night Vision Quest Float".
The "Womb Room" is yours from 9pm - 9am and we set up a sleeping space for you as WELL... just in case that you want to spend a few hours out side of the Flotation Tank. The length of your float depends on your personal eXperience: X marks the spot for Body, Mind & Soul to arrive at Homeostasis... the balance from within! Most people take up to 6 hrs for an uninterrupted float or split their float time in half, 4 hrs in the evening and 4 hrs in the morning.
Your breakfast is included and prepared to your wishes. Our kitchen is available to you all night long though for water, tea, juice and munchies! (Please let us know about special diet needs the day before your appointment)
Please clarify your arrival and your departure time with us before you make your reservation.
Although you are not alone in our house and we will check in with you in case of an emergency, there won't be any "Womb-Service" from 9pm-9am. We suggest "All Night Vision Quest Floats" only to people who have some eXperience already with Sensory Deprivation.

All Night Vision Quest Floats can be shared by two people . But they are going into the Flotation Tank and/or Sensory eXaltation Tank alone, at different times.
I had an amazing experience staying at the Womb-Room. As context, I've had some experience doing floatation therapy before but never for more than an hour and a half. I wouldn't say that I was nervous about doing an overnight float but I certainly didn't know what to expect.
When I arrived Jai and Shanti were wonderful hosts. You don't have to talk with them for very long to see that they are both committed and compassionate people who are interested in helping others find what they are looking for. Shanti and I talked for about an hour before I started about the float itself but also about my intentions in life in general. Shanti were really personally invested in making sure that I had all the mental tools and preparation that I needed to get the most out of the experience. The next morning after the float I had breakfast with Shanti and Jai and we talked about the experience again to tie it in with the conversation we had the night before.
I totally recommend this experience to anyone who is open-minded and willing to take a step outside of their comfort zone for the sake of growing spiritually or emotionally. It was at times intense, at times just plain odd, but Jai and Shanti were wonderful guides, just wonderful people in general. I'd definitely repeat it :)
Jai and Shanti were such warm and welcoming hosts! I felt at home since the moment I arrived at their front yard. Everywhere I looked, their house was set up beautifully - the garden, their campers, and the abundant, fascinating projects all around.
I arrived a little earlier than planned, yet Shanti took time to introduce me to their house and to the Womb-Room in detail before offering me some warm tea and a hammock to take a nap. I woke up at dusk, and spent the evening with Jai, Shanti, and three traveling girls who were staying inside the camper rooms. We shared great conversation and a tasty potluck dinner before I retired to my room, and spent a very restful night floating in warm, saline waters.
In the morning, Shanti prepared the infrared sauna for me to use, where I dried out, and allowed the remnant salt to be absorbed through my skin. A refreshing shower and a DELICIOUS breakfast later, I felt blissfully grateful to have found Be & Be Well.
Jai and Shanti's is a place filled with joy, harmony, comfort, wellness, beauty, color, and creativity, as are they. Whichever of these you are looking for, you will have been grateful to have met them and their wonderful haven.
First word: Enlightening.
Shante and Jai are fantastic hosts and the retreat was everything I hoped for. Play their game with Shante while your there if you get a chance. Game changer. Pun intended
We had a great time at Jai and Shanti's place. They were amazing hosts making us feel at home immediately we arrived. In the morning, we had delicious breakfast wiith them and and their guests whom we found really interesting.
It was our first time floating and it was a pretty relaxing and meditative experience.
Hope to stay with them again soon.
So sorry this has taken so long, I have been traveling for the past two weeks and just got home tonight. My time at the Womb-Room was great, I have to admit I did not have an epiphany of any sort I was to busy being totally amused by the feeling of the tank, like a kid, as close as I will ever get to being in space. Everyone at the house was accepting and very nice, and having the ability to use the sauna multiple times was great ( I want one! ). I am looking forward to my next visits when I can settle into the experience of the float tank and see what comes. I highly recommend checking it out and seeing for yourself!!!!!!
What an awesome, inspiring and relaxing time we had. One can be found in Synchronistic Bliss here! Shanti is now on my top 10 massage therapist list:) Looking forward to spending more time in the tank and wow that Sunday brunch frittata with friends was quite memorable.
Thank You and See you both soon!
Thank you for that awesOM review! Jai and i are very much looking forward too to be seeing you again :-) Are you coming down in your new Tesla Mobil ;-) And let us know when as soon as possible so we can hold a room for you :-) And yes, lets try out that milk chai and see how it does 3
