Property description

Welcome to the Dome Zone. Once you arrive, you'll know what we mean... This geodesic dome cabin is like no other, nestled in Blue Lakes Springs Resort. You enter into an Ahwahnee-like lodge, 35 foot ceiling with a large triangular skylight & oversized windows streaming nature and light throughout and transporting you into the Zone.

A great room opens to the kitchen, where memories are made. Comfortable bedrooms invite peaceful rest (Bear’s Cave, Wolf's Den, Dear Hollow, Lion's Lair, Eagle’s Nest), and then there's Moose Lodge where you can relax, enjoy games, play ping pong, sweat your way to health in the resort style Dry Sauna room or soak in a brand new hot tub under a canopy of redwoods and evergreens. Kick back on the upper deck while dinner cooks on the BBQ. Enjoy the shaded downstairs deck when the summer heat is at its peak. That's the Dome Zone. There is plenty of room for large families with kids. Ten bunk beds populate the adjacent dormitory across from the dome. The dormitory is complete with it’s own bathroom, shower, TV and VCR where the kids can chill out after a long day of outdoor activities which are numerous.

This property is a 5-minute walk to great wilderness trails for hiking, or, if you want to go to a place reminiscent of the 1950's, you are minutes away from Blue Lakes Springs Resort. The resort has everything- a pristine lake for swimming, a swimming pool, tennis courts, beach volleyball, basketball, ping-pong, night-time movies under the stars, children's activities, snack bar, restaurant and more!

Are you into downhill or cross-country skiing, snowmobiling? Bear Valley ski resort is 40 minutes north. Wine tasting and great food await you in the gold country town of Murphy's, a 15 minute drive west where Ironstone Vineyards puts on out-door concerts. If you want to go to a gold-rush town frozen in time, Columbia is a beautiful 40-minute drive southeast. Everything there is original 1840's, including bars, shops, theater, gold panning, and people! Theatrical performances are both scheduled and spontaneous. On the way, hit Moaning Cavern or Mercer Cavern where you can choose the zip line, climbing tower and/or walking tour. Fish, boat and swim at Alpine Lake near Bear Valley and several other fishing holes along the way (check in at Ebbetts Sporting Goods for the skinning). Also, Melones Lake near Angels Camp has great fishing, boating and jet skiing.

Is golf your thing? Sequoia Woods is in walking distance from the Dome. Forest Meadows is 15 minutes down the road. Greenhorn Creek Resort in Angels Camp is a 30-minute drive and Saddle Creek Resort in Copperopolis another 20 miles west of Angels Camp.

You can be as active as you wish or simply relax in the dome zone under the stars that sparkle through the skylight ceiling. Enjoy.
