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!

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.

Lovely getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful! The lodge is incredibly comfortable and every window has gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside. The farm around the lodge brought an added element of peace and tranquility to our visit, as did the wellness amenities (e.g., sauna, zero-gravity chairs, etc.) in the lodge itself. When I asked my 5-year-old what he enjoyed most about our trip, he said "meeting Tobin and his family." So that gives you a pretty good idea of how welcoming and thoughtful our hosts were. I highly recommend this place to all families -- especially if you have young kids.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a quiet weekend at this home. It was very clean and perfect for what we were looking for. We enjoyed the walk around the farm and the private workout equipment downstairs. The sauna was a nice treat. Tobin and his family were very nice and helpful. The pictures on the web site were accurate.

Great Stay

What a cute place and such nice hosts. We would definitely book here again. It was nice to be out in the country but still close to everything.

Private loft with ample living space. All of the accommodations of home with gracious hosts. Ultra relaxing zero gravity chairs (I want one), large gym, and a bonus surprise - SAUNA! Sweat out those toxins! The bed was ultra comfy with warm snuggly bedding. Four large windows which we left open to feel the wonderful summer breeze. Our hosts were very cordial and gave us info on a beautiful walk around their property. Even one of their dogs came with us, who was more or less our guide! You feel isolated and relaxed, however, the towns are all very nearby with anything you might need. You can cook in the cute kitchenette or go out to nearby delicious restaurants. We were there for an orientation for our son, who is attending Cal Poly SLO in the fall, and it was about a 15-20 min. easy drive. I woke up one morning to the sound of a rooster crowing and a horse naying - what a relaxing sound, something that I'm not used to! We can't wait to go back and visit. Hopefully, next time we will be able to stay longer. I forgot to mention how easy it was to make the reservation, and the immediate replies I would receive with any questions.
