A beautiful redwood home with stained glass, beautiful decor and two fireplaces, plus a full kitchen with marble prep table, and two outdoor deck areas, one with its own large hottub. Close to wineries, restaurants, and tasting rooms.
Imagine staying in a historic turn of the century farmhouse with redwood walls, 14-foot ceilings and tall many paned windows. Each room is outfitted to reflect Queens of ancient Egypt. There is the Ankhsenamen Room, the Nefertari Room, and the Hatshepsut Room.
There is the 30-foot long living room, with gas fireplace, air conditioner, and 2 ceiling fans. It is named for Cleopatra and has four couches that may be used for beds or just lounging. The room off the living rooms through sliding wooden doors is the Hatshepsut Room, and may have twin beds or 1 Queen sized bed as needed. Then there is the loft up winding stairs and named for Queen Nefertiti. It can sleep 5 in twin beds or be for a couple in a queen as needed. It has a half bath and there are two full bathrooms in the house downstairs, one with a bathtub the other with a shower. There is also Queen Ti’s Tearoom having another gas fireplace adjacent to the dining area with a long table for 15 people to dine. Then there is a kitchen outfitted for cooking, with a pantry with plates, wine glasses etc. required for serving. The house has wall-to-wall carpeting except in the kitchen and dining area. If you need to stay connected, note that the entire house has free wireless internet.
There are two decks. The one in front looks out on Geyser Peak off the living room and the one in back is off the kitchen and dining area. This is where the hot tub and barbecue grill are available to enjoy. There are tables and chairs for a fun party to be held in this area under a giant fig tree. There is parking right along side this house, which is set apart from the 10 acres that comprise the Isis Oasis Sanctuary, a spiritual retreat center dedicated to the ancient Egyptian Goddess Isis also known as Mother Earth.
As guests on the property, you would have access to the pool/hot tub and sauna onsite (Reminder: the Nesu Retreat House has its own private hot tub). Additionally, you could view all the exotic cats and birds at our zoological sanctuary and partake of the events (films/plays/concerts) in our Egyptian temple themed temple theater. There are fine dining options within walking distance from The Nesu retreat House e.g. 'Catelli's Italian Restaurant', 'Diavola Pizzeria.' Additionally, there is 'The Geyserville Mud' coffee and pastry shop, which is a popular spot, and 'The Geyserville Grille' on the north end of town, which is a terrific spot for breakfast.
We are close to many renowned wineries (Francis Ford Coppola, Trentadue, Trione, Geyser Peak, Clos Du Bois etc.), which offer wine tasting, and the Russian River is within a short walking distance for kayaking/canoeing. Lake Sonoma is about 6 miles away, and is a popular spot for boating and hiking. Additionally, River Rock Casino is close by! Please come and visit the unique...Nesu Retreat House. You don't have to travel far to be in a whole other world, time and place!
***NOTE: The Nesu Retreat House can accommodate up to 18 guests. There are 3 private bedrooms and two areas with 5 twin beds each, plus a couch bed. There are 3 bathrooms and two fireplaces. We can sometimes make special offers for smaller groups and families with children. Love & Blessings...Loreon***

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.
