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.

Simply heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot thank Bill and Terri enough for opening up their beautiful "dome" away from home. From the views, to the furnishings, everything was amazing. It was hard to leave, we kept looking back up the hill to get one last view. Thanks again, Bill and Terri.... we will definitely be back!

Beautiful place

Our second stay at the dome - such a great place. Peaceful and cozy with everything you need.

Close to Craftsbury for skiing. Definitely need 4 wheel drive in the winter! Great host!

warm dome is very cool

  • 5 of 5

We had a long-weekend stay at the Solar Dome. Host Bill was very attentive and accommodating. The frigid Vermont winter, beautiful and snowy, stayed outside: inside, the radiant floor heat and comfortable couch and chairs made our stay feel luxurious. The kitchen is one of the best-appointed of any rental we've visited. Leaving a sampler of Vermont cider in the fridge was an especially nice touch! We'd definitely come back.

Gorgeous Location, Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

I booked the solar dome for a weekend long photo shoot with multiple clients. Every single client thought the dome was gorgeous and all of them managed to find it with the excellent directions we were given. When a client got stuck in the driveway one evening (note: no other clients got stuck, this one just happened to park in a bad spot), Bill came up to help get the car out and was very sweet about the whole situation.

This location was ideal for the shoot and I'm so thankful to Bill and his wife for allowing me to use the dome for the photo shoot!

Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

Bill's place is amazing-warm and bright, well furnished kitchen and everything else. He is not kidding about the snow/tire issue in the winter. Several inches of fresh snowfall meant our non-snow tire AWD found it challenging. Next time I will have chains at the ready. Bill was hugely helpful and I would recommend this place to anyone interested.
