Spectacular Dome House
Spectacular Dome House
This place is excellent for a group! With 4 bedrooms and a dormitory, 4 full bathrooms, hot tub, sauna and ping pong table - it's hard to beat! The kitchen and living area are spacious enough to accommodate a big group eating or hanging out. We've stayed there since 2007 for our annual ski trip and truly enjoyed ourselves. The acoustics of the dome are endlessly fascinating. Stand at the top of the stairs and you can hear people in the kitchen below as if they were standing right beside you. No secrets at the Dome! Not far from the house is a great hiking trail. Up the road is Bear Valley for skiing and boarding. At times the maintenance/cleaning has been inconsistent. If there is an issue, we just contact the property manager and get it resolved. Our group really looks forward to our annual stay at the Dome! We love it!
