30 acres nestled among trees in the foothills of the Cascades, The Aerie is fittingly named after the nests of eagles, who roost by the hundreds during winter at the adjacent Bear Valley Bald Eagle Refuge. The Aerie offers endless quiet, innumerable great places to sit/contemplate/meditate, hours and days one can walk through mixed forest. Half way between San Francisco and Portland, city dwellers looking for their rural retreat where one can rest, re-set, and regenerate need look no further.
Developed as a spiritual retreat property, solar-assisted The Aerie offers itself to many uses.
Abundant space provides room to entertain small and large groups. Up to 40 people can be seated comfortably for celebratory dining in both the Main House and the Gathering House. Each house is supported by its own solar array.The Gathering House, with large sauna, soaking tub, and plumbed space for a large hot tub hosts the romantic couple as well as a reunion of friends and family.
The grounds at The Aerie have ceremonial and sacred sites. The land itself is a healing field. The property has been archaeologically surveyed. Vision quest cairns and thrones remain on the hill above, the sites facing Mt. Dome, the northernmost point of the Modoc world.
The Aerie is a gardener’s dream with glass green house; fenced organic acre with in ground irrigation; fenced orchard with a dozen fruit trees; fenced spiral garden with roses, flowers, food, spices, culinary and medicinal herbs. The south facing 8 acre field is an isolated flow of sandy loam waiting for winter wine grapes, lavender, or ? The field is also the perfect location for a paddock and stable.
Additionally, The Aerie can serve as a base for musicians – there is ample room for instruments and closest neighbors are 1/2 mile away.
