About the Property
Dome Home Very Close to Paradise
This 3/4 Dome is on 5 Acres adjoins BLM and USFS lands totaling in the hundreds of thousands of Acres. It is 3.5 miles up a dirt road. A 4WD CAR IS REQUIRED IN THE WINTER. It is a cabin in the woods with heat and electricity and running water including free laundry. It is however somewhat rustic and there are no maids, you will be expected to clean up after yourselves AND take your trash with you at the end of your stay. Basic cooking supplies are included but you will need to go grocery shopping. The home has 1 BR and 1 BA and has a total of about 1100 sf. There are three beds in ONE common room w/ loft. It has Heat ( controlled by thermostat) and Water and Electricity....no tv...no internet, but phones work well (4G network) so you can still post to your fave socialist media page. There is a stereo with a radio ( you can listen to football games) , a RECORD PLAYER from the last century, and a jack for your phone music. In winter November thru May a 4wd car with good tires may be required to reach the Dome. The dome is luxurious in some ways, and rustic in others and its an all around a good value and unique place to stay. It is close to both Denver and to the mountains but does require some work to entertain yourself in an old fashioned way.
