This listing is for Room # 11 at The Isis Oasis Lodge, The Goddess Wadjet Room. Wadjet was the ancient Egyptian Cobra Goddess of Healing. For photographs of the entire Lodge, please take a look at my listing titled 'The Isis Oasis Lodge.'
The 12 room Isis Oasis Lodge is a unique place to stay if you are visiting the wine country and want to have a spiritual experience. Drive in to our retreat center and park at the office. There you will see a small ornate Temple dedicated to the Goddess Isis. You may enter and offer a prayer while honoring the four directions. Get your room keys in the office off the spacious dining pavilion. Then you can drive up a hill where you will find the Lodge. Park behind this edifice and enter this historic building built circa 1932. None of the rooms have a private bath, TV, or air conditioning, however the lodge always stays cool. Each room is designed to reflect a different Egyptian Goddess and holds a description of the attributes she represents. All have ceiling fans, exotic netting over the beds, and artifacts representing each particular Goddess within. You can enjoy the safari lounge with fireplace that overlooks the sparkling swimming pool just outside the lodge within a secluded garden. There is a hot spa and a sauna as well as a wood burning oven in this area. Upstairs in the lodge is one gigantic room with a rug on one side where you might like to do some yoga, or watch TV. There is also a ping pong table and pool table for your enjoyment. The lodge has two dorm style bathrooms, one for women and one for men. The upstairs has more bathrooms plus a spa tub room.
There are fine dining options within walking distance from The Isis Oasis Lodge 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.), 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 a 5 mile drive away. If you are coming as a couple or individual, you will find Isis Oasis Lodge a refreshing change from the everyday hotel or motel. Please come and visit the unique...Isis Oasis Lodge. You don't have to travel far to be in a whole other world, time and place!
**Note: If you're coming as a group, multiple rooms can be rented out simultaneously OR, the entire Lodge can be rented out for large groups/events. Check out my other listings. I also have other rentals on my property e.g. a secluded cottage for couples 'The Cabernet Cabin.' Again, check out all my other listings! **
We had a great time at the Isis Oasis- Loreon was very helpful and responsive to questions I had when booking and even when I messaged that we were arriving even later than expected on Friday night. We were greeted promptly upon arrival by Miguel, the primary caretaker and sustainable builder/artist at the retreat, and he was all too happy to show off his handiwork to my partner Jay who is also a sustainable builder. I surprised my partner with the unique destination and had a feeling he would appreciate the unique cob-structures on the property. We were lucky enough to get to stay in the Hobbit House on Friday which was a real treat!
Our main goal was to get away somewhere quiet and away from our busy lives for a short trip and we were able to maintain our little personal space even amidst a very busy weekend at Isis Oasis. We were out on our bikes or tubing on the Russian River (Saturday in Forestville/Guerneville area and Sunday in Cloverdale) most of the daytimes and came back in the evenings for a dip in the pool and hot tubs, which were WONDERFUL....we thoroughly got good use out of them and a cool reprieve from the almost 100 degree temperatures.
On Sunday, Miguel was kind enough step away from his busy schedule to take us on a tour of the aviary and cattery. Jay was literally glowing that he spend some moments up close and personal with an ocelot. A wonderful experience overall- our only regret was that neither Jay nor I got to meet the elusive Loreon! Though I do expect there will be a next time- it's close enough from Santa Cruz and a sweet getaway....I know we'll be back!
My five year old son and I stayed in this beautiful, warm space and had a wonderful time. Children are warmly welcomed, which is not always the case, so I am grateful for this sweet opportunity to go swimming in the beautiful pool, see the amazing animals (wow!) and hike around. Very charming accommodations, child-friendly, natural and luxurious and very unique at the same time. The price is really low. Great restaurants in the neighborhood (walking distance), advance reservations recommended.
