Private Lodge in SLO, King Bed, Sauna, Rural Living"

Bedrooms 1
Space 1,500 sq. ft.
Property type lodge
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Rural San Luis Obispo. 5 minutes from Pismo Beach, SLO and A.G. Custom built to be a wellness centered getaway. No EMFs or carpet. Filtered & Ozonated air, Spring Water, Zero Gravity chairs, full gym, hiking, yummy treats, eggs, and great views!

We spared no expense in customizing this garage retreat. We built it tall and the views from each of its 4 windows are breathtaking. Relaxation comes naturally inside the building since we had an electrician run every outlet, switch and fixture in its own conduit so there are no magnetic fields. As far as I know its the only building like it in this part of California.

About Tobin Risner

My wife Natalie & I are self employed parents of 2 young daughters. We live on a beautiful 22 acre ranch in San Luis Obispo, California. We have horses, dogs and chickens. In 2012 we built a custom garage with an 800 sq/ft space above it designed to be my office. However, I found it to be important to have my office in downtown SLO so I stopped using the home office. I spared no expense in making the space the healthiest and most relaxing environment possible to eliminate everything from stress to electromagnetic fields. The space is an oasis of wellness and is still my little meditation retreat on occasion.

Tobin Risner purchased this lodge in 2011

What makes this lodge unique

I recovered my health naturally following a 5 year long battle with multiple autoimmune conditions, hormone issues, toxicity issues and multiple infections. No doctor could help me and I spent BIG money chasing a solution to my illness. In 2015 I founded the Chronic Wellness Club and I spend a good amount of my time consulting with folks who have chronic health issues ranging from obesity and allergies to Autoimmune diseases, Lyme's disease and everything in between. My protocol has been used to help thousands of people recover their health and as a guest of mine you may like to hear about my story and how I recovered my health. I am passionate about helping people feel their best and would be happy to share with you!

This charming retreat exceeded all of my expectations creating a shining memory for my granddaughter and me. It is difficult to express just how unusual this place is. The surrounding views are incredible - made even more so by the family farm that surrounds you. The owners live nearby, and couldn't be more hospitable - even providing fresh eggs for us to enjoy. My granddaughter stayed with me for the entire visit, and she was excited to live so close to horses and check on the kitties and pet the family pets (who are not in any way intrusive, but so friendly, if you want to be.) I've got pictures to fill an album displaying the joy of country living.

But beyond this, the retreat is within a 15 minute or less drive from all of the wonderful coastal activities you might want to enjoy. It is only 15 minutes from modern shopping. It is a short drive to entertainment of all sorts, and every inch is beautiful! If I ever need a place to stay on the central coast again, this will be my choice!

great weekend get away!

  • 5 of 5

a wonderful property! we attended a family wedding at the Green Gate winery across the street, and this was the perfect place for my husband and I . everything was cleaned and well maintained, I wish we were able to take advantage of the fresh eggs, but family time kept us pretty busy. the beach isnt too far away and downtown SLO is near by as well. only 5 mins from the airport. would highly recommend this spot. my only caution would be if you had issues with climbing a flight of stairs, this might not be the spot for you. Bathroom is down, living space is up. Would love to come back and explore this area more! thanks Tobin for the hospitality!!

Serene and clean

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the lodge for two nights. Everything was spotless and it was very peaceful and in a lovely setting. The location was perfect for us and the owner was attentive to anything we might need but also gave us a lot of privacy. I would recommend the lodge to friends and family as a nice place to stay on the Central Coast.

Beautiful, clean property.

Had a wonderful stay with my family of 4. The house was great, comfortable beds, and great amenities. Loved the sauna, work out area, and anti gravity chairs. Lovely, relaxing time.

Everything it was advertised to be.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location. less than 3 miles to half a dozen wine tasting rooms. Extremely clean. Friendly hosts.

All we expected. Great price.

Kitchen lacks a few essentials. Bring you own sharp knife for chopping vegetables.

Very peaceful.... highly recommend. I will go back.
