Its a 10 out of 10 hands down!
It is a very nice place to get away from it all. Located half way between Stowe, Newport, Jay, and Troy it is in a perfect spot. The house was clean and quite roomy for a round house. The water was filtered so you can drink it. The views that you have are amazing, in the early morning and when the sun goes down at night. The stars are bright and by 10 pm you can see the Milky Way. Quiet, very green trees all around you. Yes I would re-rent this property if I go back to Vermont again. The only downside to this ... I had to leave to go back to work.
The amazing solar dome is, indeed, amazing! We enjoyed everything about our stay... the property, the wonderful hosts, the house itself. It really could not have been a better family getaway in the mountains of Vermont. The Northeast Kingdom is beautiful and this is a great place to explore the surrounding beauty. Bill is a knowledgeable and responsive host. We highly recommend this wonderful place!
Very nice place.
The house is off the beaten path, but we were happy with that. My only recommendation would be to add another couch. There weren't enough comfortable seats for 6 of us to watch TV.
Spacious and unique property in Vermont
We really enjoyed staying at the Solar Dome for a weekend getaway while our son attended day camp nearby. There was plenty of room for our whole family (including our small dog), and we especially enjoyed being surrounded by nature (we saw fireflies and heard owls). Everything was very clean and well maintained, and the kitchen was well appointed for the cooking we did at the property. We will definitely hope to return in the future!
We had a blast. The dome was clean, owners pleasant. We are planning to return later in the summer/fall as soon as I get the time approved. My dogs came home exhausted from playing outside so much.
Amazing Winter experience!
The Solar Dome provided us with a wonderful home away from home for a week. Our family of 5 -- parents, adult kids plus dog -- thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the hospitality provided by Bill and Terri. We loved the design of the dome, the amount of space it provided, including for our large (Bernese Mountain) dog, the comfort and warmth, as well as the view and the fresh snow. Watching the star-filled sky at night was truly amazing. Bill and his tractor/plow made sure our car could manage the drive up to the dome under the heavy winter conditions.
