Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

If you’re interested in exploring the “green” side of the Green Mountain State, this solar-powered geodesic dome is a completely different Vermont experience. Of course, you’ll still have privacy and the quiet serenity of nature surrounding you. Four downhill ski areas will still be within a forty-minute drive, and the Craftsbury Nordic Center will be ten minutes away with its miles of cross-country skiing.

In the summer, you’ll be a short distance from lakes, rivers, the Canadian border, seven golf courses, the Long Trail for hiking, road biking, mountain biking, fishing, boating, and any outdoor sport you can imagine. Stowe, St. Johnsbury, and Newport, Vermont are all just a short drive away.

Peaceful get away with a great view and all the amenities a family needs.

  • 5 of 5

Bill is the ideal host for a vacation rental. He allowed us to bring our dogs along and was immediately responsive to any questions we had. Bill even towed me out of a snowbank that I got myself stuck in! The dome has every amenity that a family needs. We had no issues with power even though we had mostly overcast weather for 6 out of 7 days. Using the outdoor woodstove was a breeze that any one can handle. If you are looking for a peaceful place for your next getaway you won't be disappointed with Bill's unique solar dome. Just go and you'll know!

Hospitable, generous hosts - perfect secluded retreat

  • 5 of 5

Bill, Terry, and Connor were perfect hosts and the dome far exceeded anything I could have imagined! Perfect snowy getaway for myself and a number of friends. We had everything we needed (though we could have used some more snow!) and were incredibly comfortable and swooned by the sun through the windows and the warmth of the dome. Highly recommend. Thank you!

Warm and toasty. Plenty of room and a well equipped kitchen made for a very comfortable stay.

  • 5 of 5

our group had a great time staying at the amazing solar dome. The directions made it easy to find. When we arrived the place was warm and was nice and comfortable after a day of skiing. The well equipped kitchen exceeded my expectations for a rental and I now know when I come back I won't need to pack my own knives for cooking. There was plenty of room. Warm floors from the radiant heat kept our feet happy getting out of bed in the morning. I would definitely rent this place again

Immaculate and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This place is so clean and new looking inside it was like we were it's first renters!

Just off I-91 suddenly you feel completely away from it all but anything you need is nearby.

So much stuff to do and places to visit , but when you are at the dome you feel completely AWAY.

Modern kitchen and huge outdoor grill, everything you need to cook what you bring back from the store.

Owner responds quickly to emails and questions. Comfortable beds, toasty radiant heat,hot showers, modern washer/dryer.

The dome is huge with plenty of places to settle down alone with a book but we spent most our time on the deck with it's ever changing mountain views, Milky Way and countless stars.

Watching the constellations slide by, snow falling and sun rises from the master bed was Amazing!

My four-legged friend was overjoyed with all the space too...

I have never rented before and this place was perfection.

I loved Geocaching and driving long beautiful dirt roads around the area- SO beautiful!

In one word..... amazing.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing time at the solar dome and we can't wait to come back. The dome and the surrounding property is beautiful. The views are just spectacular. We can not speak highly enough about Bill and his solar dome. We will be planning another trip here soon.
