This truly unique modern house was recently built around an original 30' geodesic dome nestled in rock outcroppings and overlooking acres of lovely open fields.
The Dome houses the kitchen, dining, woodstove and a living room/entertainment center with a 6' projection TV with cable, DvdR and Bose sound system plus more within. The house wing has a Great Room with a fireplace overlooking the fields and 3 bedrooms laid out on 2 levels, accessible by a beautiful stair case. The master bedroom has soaring ceilings and windows, a fireplace, a steam shower and a large walk in closet.

We provide all you need for a comfortable stay: linens, teas, oils, spices, paper products and wood for the woodstove.
The property is so well-appointed and inspiring you may never want to leave!

We had the pleasure of visiting the Dome House last Fall and have already booked to return again! This house is perfect - the architecture, the setting, the details of the home and the location. We could not have asked for a better weekend in Woodstock! There is such a great vibe in this home, so many great thing to discover. The pictures capture a beautiful home, it so much better in person! This is such an incredible space with the combination of the Dome and the newer addition. The bedrooms are comfortable and spacious, especially the master bedroom upstairs. The kitchen is well equipped and has everything you could possibly need. The steam shower was fantastic and was so relaxing. We enjoyed cooking feasts in the kitchen, watching movies on the projector screen, relaxing in the backyard with the fall foliage and taking walks into town. I would highly recommend this home to anyone, we cannot wait for our next trip.

A fabtastic location and house. My wife and I spent two wonderful weeks here. The photos do not convey how good this house it - truly exceptional in terms of design and layout. From the floor to ceiling windows letting in bright sunshine each morning to the exquisite dome housing the kitchen and living area. We liked it so much we planned to return, but it was already booked out. I could not recommend it enough

Best Vacation House Yet
Best Vacation House Yet
I have stayed at a handful of vacation homes these past few years and this by far has been one of the best, if not the best! To me the quality of a home (i.e. build, modern, decoration, furnishings, cleanliness etc.) is equally important as the type of person whom owns/manages the vacation home. For me this dictates the overall vibe I get from the home and can really increase the experience for me when owned/managed by people whom really seem to care, enjoy life and have a free spirit. Kim, the manager of this home was amazing from start to finish and made my group and I very happy and feel completely welcome. I did not meet the owner but I can tell by the feel of the house that they are kind and interesting. This house really blew us away from the large beautiful master bedroom, large steam shower, large Jacuzzi and most amazing Dome living/dining/kitchen area. If you want a treat of a lifetime in the Catskills, come stay at the Dome House! We hope to come back again in the near future. Thank you Kim!!

This house is amazing! Simultaneously roomy and cozy because of the different spaces and architectures. FLW fans make sure to pick this home to read the Owner's cool collection of literature on his architecture. Woodstock is a fun place full of interesting people and shops and great places to eat and the Catskills are beautiful year round. The manager for this home was awesome to work with.

Ode to DomeGuest comment entered by manager
Ode to Dome
I have found myself in a strange and wondrous place, reminiscent of another time. A Dome, where delicate fairy-lights suspend from above, and echoes bounce through the air such that reclining on the couch, my companion cooking at the stove can still whisper gently in my ear, all while rosemary potatoes produce whirls of fragrance that fill the Dome, and warm it from within. I have come to this place thanks to a woman with fine taste in cheese plates and questionable humor. She has reached the tender age of thirty, and unbelievably, we have been 'buddies of the bosom" for over half that time. All women of thirty should be so fortunate as to enjoy frosted spelt-flour cake in the company of friends in a Dome, difficult paper decorations sitting quietly above, and absorbing laughter and breath. After cake, it felt like a pleasurable duty to sprawl myself out on the the thick carpet, woven of the hair of twelve to fifteen aging troll brothers of the nearby woods. I am grateful. Thank you.

Amazing and beautiful home
Amazing and beautiful home
This house is even more beautiful than the pictures and is even bigger than I thought. Everything is represented accurately in the listing for sure. It was perfectly prepared and Jana was very helpful and responsive with questions. The flaws were very minimal (the bed in the master bedroom is harder than I prefer, there are no blinds in the master bedroom, it is hard to see the tv in the sunlight if you want to watch tv) and should really be ignored given how absolutely amazing this house is.

Manager response: Thanks for the great feedback Amanda! It was a pleasure having you. My apologies for the master mattress comfort. We actually have a feathertop that is heavenly, but the renter before you had a feather allergy so we had removed it for them and then overlooked getting it back in place. As noted in the houseguide, the master windows are simply too large to cover so we provide complimentary sleep masks for late sleepers and the Domes 6' projection TV is best viewed later on a sunny day. As an alternative, the master bedroom has a 30" standard screen there.
My husband and I take weekend trips to the Catskills a lot. We keep coming back to Woodstock and have rented the Dome House several times. It is our favorite and whenever we come, we wish we never had to leave. It is always clean, comfortable and beautifully maintained. The giant yard is always filled with deer and the gazebo is perfect for hanging out with friends. The whirlpool tub and shower are great and the beds are very comfy. We have brought our friends and our dog and never had anything but a great experience. We got "snowed in" there last Halloween, and with all the fireplaces, projector TV, full kitchen and relaxing setting, we were glad we had to cancel our plans and stay in entertaining. I really can not say enough good things about the Dome House. For short stays or long stays, it is really hard to beat. -Robyn Pring
