I would stay here again – and as much as possible use it as a home base for visits to surrounding areas. We rented a car and drove around. It was an oasis during our stay there.
It is a house of prayer and the first door when you arrive at Oasis Emanuel is a chapel.
The house itself is set up on a hill and the rooms and courtyard face down hill, across their large gardens and down to the Sea of Galilea - now called Lake Tiberias. We made a point of sitting in the courtyard each day to watch the sunrise & the moon rise.
It’s a Christian Guest House – so guests pitch in by taking their linens and garbage down on their last day, and clearing up after meals.
We stayed there in October 2010 and they were just finishing up a year of renovations – everything looks great. They have a large indoor dining area. They also have a nice stone courtyard to relax in. There is a shared kitchen area for guests (fridge, microwave, and sink) set up for general food preparation – just off the courtyard.
The home itself looks like an old time stately hotel – with a 2 story balcony stretching across the front of it. The rooms were simple, clean, spacious, with very high ceilings and a comfortable bed. They have airconditioning & ceiling fans, along with lockable (latch) screen doors and a window on the opposite side so you can catch a cross breeze if you like.
The hosts – Annick & George – are both wonderful. Kind, welcoming, intelligent people who are interesting to spend time with. They can also point your way to nearby spots to visit.
Many of the guests come in small groups on a pilgrimage. The atmosphere here is quiet and peaceful. It’s definitely not the spot for a BBQ or party – but if you like to sit, read, and relax it is great.
