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: Ankhsenamen was the wife of King Tut. The Queen Ankhsenamen Room 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...Ankhsenamen Room. You don't have to travel far to be in a whole other world, time and place!
**NOTE: The Ankhsenamen Room is across the hall from the Queen Nefertari 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!**

Quirky is a great way to describe our stay in the Nesu house. Because we were the only ones to be booked in that night, we had an entire house to ourselves. It was quite the experience to see the different rooms and the mix of decors.

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.
