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. Note: Nefertari was the wife of Ramses The Great Pharaoh. The Queen Nefertari Room is very spacious, has a Queen sized bed, a walk-in closet, and a private bathroom. To view pics of the entire house, take a look at the numerous photos posted on my other listing titled 'Nesu Retreat House.' You will have access to a fully equipped kitchen, a hot-tub, and a wood-burning pyramid shaped cob oven. Note: If another/other rooms are rented in the Nesu Retreat House during your stay, you will have to share these amenities. However, we have other hot-tubs and cob ovens on the property, as I will detail later. If you're all about staying connected, we offer free wifi-internet throughout the property. 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. 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 redwood theater. 'Mummy's Kitchen' on our beautiful garden pavilion is often available for dining out and 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 Hoffman House Restaurant' 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...Nefertari Room. You don't have to travel far to be in a whole other world, time and place!
**NOTE: The Nefertari Room is across the hall from the Queen Ankhsenamen room, so, if you want to come stay at the Nesu Retreat House with your friends, you can rent both rooms simultaneously. Check out my other listings!**

My girlfriend and I ended up spending Christmas here and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The property was the beautiful escape that we were seeking from city life, and were lucky to have the Nesu House all to ourselves. We had planned to prepare our own Christmas dinner, but were invited to eat dinner with the staff here by DeTracey, the director, and she prepared the most beautiful and generous Christmas meal that we shared with a warm room full of unique individuals. We had a beautiful experience here and can't wait to come back.
Isis Oasis is a great place to retreat back to after a hot day of wine tasting. Hung out by the pool, hot tub at night. Miguel and folks were very welcoming - our room was great. Would definitely stay again.
We had a quick stayover at Isis Oasis on our way to and from a wedding in Healdsburg. We were amazed as soon as we entered the premises to see beautiful white peacocks! It was exactly as it presented itself online - a little funky, a little exotic, and quite friendly.
What a wonderful experience! Loreon's rooms are beautiful and comfortable, and the grounds are a pleasure - the lovely Eve gave my friends and I a tour of the animals, and we got to hold a beautiful corn snake and some frisky bearded lizards. The pool and sauna are relaxing and refreshing, and we were able to use the outdoor pizza oven to make some tasty pizzas! Loreon was kind enough to lend us some cornmeal from the kitchen, which we'd forgotten to bring. We'll definitely return.
My boyfriend and I booked the Nefertari room at Isis Oasis for a last minute getaway from the city, and really enjoyed our stay. The property and surrounding grounds were an adventure to explore and our room and the house it was in had some years on it, but wore them well and was advertised in the photos. We slept comfortably and enjoyed the adorable restaurants downtown and surrounding wineries. If you are interested in an off the beaten path stay in a one of a kind place, this is it for you!
We had a good time even though we did not sleep in the right room (our guest mistook the bedroom and gave us another one...). But no big deal.
We appreciated Loreon's discretion as we were looking for quiet time. They agreed that we stayed at the pool on Sunday afternoon, which was really nice of them. We loved the pool!
Amazing place. So peaceful. If you are looking for private retreat style place where you will be undisturbed - this is the place.

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 by Miguel Elliott. Please come and visit us at our unique peaceful sanctuary...I look forward to meeting you.
