                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Greetings! My name is Wendy and I had a dream to create a space where you could enjoy nature, dream and think. A place where healing occurs and kids run free to explore the world around them just like the good ol' days. Spent much of my career in the investment business in SF, grew up outside Chicago and I enjoy yoga, travelling and learning. I've travelled extensively worldwide and must say, Mt. Shasta ranks at the top of my list of places I could settle down and enjoy life.

                      Why the Owner Chose Mount Shasta:
                      Growing up in the Mid-west, I missed the change of seasons and Mt. Shasta is glorious thoughout the year. The people are so friendly and warm, the quaint mountain town is quite 'hip' and it is an easy, four hour drive from San Francisco. The area is ripe with outdoor activities all year long and it is not crowded like other California mountain towns!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The property was set up for small or large groups to enjoy. Sit and gaze at the mountain or enjoy the sounds of Wagon Creek flowing by while breathing the fresh air from the forest. Plenty to do and see right on the property. Swim in the pond, ride the zip line, hike the trail, have a ping-pong tournament, fooseball or dance under the night sky. Read, meditate, play a game or catch up on some much needed rest. It's all here and avaiable! We can also help with other outside services if needed. Have a warm dinner waiting for you upon arrival or a massage appointment scheduled. You name it, we'll try and help! I've had such wonderful feedback from all of our guest so far as to what a special place Bodhana is and how the pictures do not do it justice. Many have said it was their best vacation that they can remember. There is plenty of space on the property so you do not feel crowded and have room to roam. You can do as much or as little as you'd like. Town is a couple of miles away and has plenty of services, restaurants, stores if desired. If you are interested in unrehearsed living, come explore Bodhana!
