Indulge yourself and escape the crowds with a getaway in the tranquility of the Sierra Foothills. Brand new, disinfected, and sun-filled, Roya studio is the perfect place to relax, recharge, and reconnect with nature. We greet our guests from a six-foot distance.

The space
Roya Studio—The spacious, open layout interior is furbished with Italian marble floors, venetian plastered walls, granite countertops, and furnished with elegant antiques and Persian rugs. The queen size sleigh bed is fitted with organic mattress and sheets for a comfortable rest to the chirping of crickets. The granite shower and the rainfall shower head assure a soothing and refreshing morning experience.

Enjoy breakfast at the bistro table for two on your own little deck outside your front door. The studio faces a small permaculture orchard of nine fruit tree guilds thriving with flowers, herbs and organic vegetables. Daily visitors include hummingbirds, red and yellow finches, flocks of quails, and our cat, Diana the huntress, who thankfully so far has only brought home gophers and moles (she is never allowed inside the studio). And on sunny days, you’ll hear the bees hum through the English lavender.

Roya studio is an elegant, intimate space for a couple or one person wishing to take time for themselves to write, make art, meditate, and enjoy the gifts of a rural setting, the fresh air and the starry sky.

About Us
Tan and Rooja are travelers who have finally settled down and love to provide the hospitality they wished they had always received on their travels. Tan, from Taiwan, is a E/RYT500 certified yoga teacher, and Rooja, originally from Iran, is a poet working on her first manuscript. To see Tangkao's movement-based style of yoga (an offshoot of Yoga Synergy) go to ArtAnvaya website. You are welcome to take a yoga class with Tangkao and/or use the yoga room for self-practice when available. If you are a poet, you are welcome to attend Rooja's Monday night writing workshops.

Location

Dobbins, California, United States

You are a five-minute drive from our local charming lake, Lake Francis, surrounded by Ponderosa pines and a 20-50 minute drive from larger lakes (Sardine Lake, Salmon Lake, Gold Lake, Collins Lake), as well as many hiking trails and swimming holes of the South fork of the Yuba River. Our next-door neighbors run a boutique winery and offer wine-tasting. For a city experience, you are a forty-minute drive from Nevada City, the quaint gold-rush town, now a hub for the arts, and home to the annual Sierra Poetry Festival, and a two-hour scenic drive to Lake Tahoe. The area is rural but many services are available, and we are happy to connect you with the local resources such as olive oil tasting and massages if you would like to stay put and not venture far out.
