The space

This listing is for Room # 3 at The Isis Oasis Lodge, The Goddess Nepthys Room. Nepthys was the ancient Egyptian Sister Goddess of Dreams. 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. If you need to stay connected, the entire Lodge has free wireless internet. 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. Also note that if other rooms in the Lodge are rented, then, you'll be sharing the facilities/amenities with other guests. 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 sanctuary, seeing all the birds and the alpacas. The views from the area are incredible, it's easy to get to town,t and the room is very comfortable. It's really a relaxing, lovely place to be.

WARNING: This place is not for everyone. Read plenty of reviews on AirBnb and Yelp to make sure this a place you would be comfortable staying. We had a great time looking at the birds and the other wild life on the property. They have many talking birds and some exotic cats. The property is large and has a very peaceful vibe. They do not have a formal check in process. I never met the host. I was able to find a nice guy who was able to find me the keys to the room and instruct me on how to find it. The room was pretty small, but it was enough space. The shared bathrooms were pretty clean. The bed is not a full or a queen, it is two twins pushed together. I wish I would have known about that. The bed was not very comfortable and blinds are pretty see through. The property is right next to the downtown (it is very small). There are two great restaurants within walking distance. There was no water in the rooms or around, so make sure to bring some. There is a corner store walking distance, as well. The pool is very nice and relaxing. The hot tub was a good place to spend some time. There is also a sauna, but I didn't have chance to figure out how to use it. The property is owned by the church of isis, based after the Egyptian god. There is a temple there and I briefly met one of the priests...I didn't ask any questions... During the night, twice people tried to get into our rooms. It was a harmless lady and her kid, who had rented out a bunch a rooms for the week...or something like that. Overall, we slept poorly, but enjoyed the animals, the location and the hot tub. I would come back to enjoy this property during the day after wine tasting, but I don't think I would want to sleep here again. It would be great for a group party of people who are interested in "Glamping."

We stayed here along with a bunch of friends for another friend's wedding. It was hard to figure out how to check in, but other than that we enjoyed our stay. The animal tour was especially nice.

Loreon was lovely and very accommodating. My husband and I were in wine country to pick up a few bottles at a favorite winery and found ourselves not wanting to drive back to SF. We used the AirBnB mobile app. to look for accommodations and happened upon Loreon's amazing place. It was clean, comfortable and beautiful. She made booking last minute a snap and warmly welcomed us. We have already told our friends about this gem of a property and hope to return soon. We highly recommend staying here if you find yourselves in Alexander Valley. Thank you Loreon, we hope to see you again soon.

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.
