Hestia is a 10-acre retreat sanctuary is located near the sacred Mount Shasta, one of the most potent healing vortexes on earth.  We are on the land of the Karuk and our magical, flowing creek hosts a rare convergence of deeply purifying red and white minerals.

We listened to the land and consulted fengshui experts to design the most optimal spaces to rejuvenate, dream, meditate, play, connect and gather.  We are just a 5-hour drive from Portland, Oregon and San Francisco, California and are also accessible by plane, train and bus.

Hestia is the Greek Goddess of the sacred fire, of the hearth and home. She represents the center of our inner and outer worlds.

As the flames glowing from the hearth soothe us with their warmth and glowing light, the goddess Hestia gives us security, peace, and comfort in our home and community space. She helps us access our inner wisdom and accept the truth of our lives with grace.

“Our arts and cultural center rented Hestia to host our team retreat and vision planning. It was the perfect place to do so. The home accommodated our group perfectly. Before we arrived Belinda went out of her way to set beds/rooms to accommodate our large group. The home has many beautiful details that highlight nature and she has a small library of wonderful books. The living room, kitchen and outdoor areas were perfect to gather, converse, and reflect. Parks Creek with its healing waters runs through the property. It was in a great location for hikes, swimming or heading to Stewart Springs. I look forward to returning!”


“Wow! We have such immense gratitude for Belinda and the folks at Hestia. They truly provide an experience for visitors that is grounded in peace and love. The home is surrounded by the natural gems of the Mount Shasta region. The home itself is reflective of this beauty, and is a PERFECT fit for larger groups. We visited with our family, including our 11 month old son, and everyone was very happy with the stay! Thank you for such clear communication, Belinda. We now know we have a second home in Weed!”


“This was by far above what I could have imagined! Belinda’s land is magical, we could all feel it. I had a group of ladies joining me for a retreat and this place was the perfect location. The house was extremely cozy and warm, we all felt at home. The furnishings were adjustable in the living room for all our different activities. When I crossed over the bridge of the Mt. Shasta river to get to the property, it felt as though the old world fell behind and I entered into pure magic. The sounds of the river were so soothing, everyone slept well and had fascinating dreams. There were hidden gems all over the forested property to discover.
