AMAZING SOLAR POWERED DOME

Albany House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

If you’re interested in exploring the “green” side of the Green Mountain State, this solar-powered geodesic dome is a completely different Vermont experience. Of course, you’ll still have privacy and the quiet serenity of nature surrounding you. Four downhill ski areas will still be within a forty-minute drive, and the Craftsbury Nordic Center will be ten minutes away with its miles of cross-country skiing.

In the summer, you’ll be a short distance from lakes, rivers, the Canadian border, seven golf courses, the Long Trail for hiking, road biking, mountain biking, fishing, boating, and any outdoor sport you can imagine. Stowe, St. Johnsbury, and Newport, Vermont are all just a short drive away.

Suitability:
  • Events Allowed
  • pets considered
  • Low Allergen Environment
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible

THANKSGIVING AT THE SOLAR DOME

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely perfect time at the Solar Dome. The dome itself is spacious, comfortable, and charming - it made it hard to leave. Had everything we wanted for cooking and a great getaway. Area is simply beautiful in and of itself; for a longer stay, it's convenient for day trips to Burlington and Montreal. The owners are lovely, thoughtful people who helped us with anything we needed. In short, we'll be back.

BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
The photos do not do it justice! We walked into the dome and were floored by how beautiful and well kept it was! The vines and plants inside, the color scheme, and THE MASTER BATHROOM - wow! This was absolutely the perfect romantic, relaxing getaway we were looking for. On the first night we used the grill and lit a fire to watch a movie. The second day we explored Albany and ended up at the Parker Pie Company for the most delicious pizzas (a must see!). The owner Bill was so helpful and left a bottle of VT maple syrup that I am still enjoying with my breakfasts.

We would definitely come back, next time in the fall to see the foliage.

Thank you!

SOLAR DOME VT

  • 5 of 5
This is an amazing house, both the structure itself and the landscape that surrounds it. We stayed in the Solar Dome for 3 nights - myself, husband, toddler, and dog. Reasons to rent this place:

- The owner, Bill, is wonderful. He is easy to get a hold of and went out of his way to make us feel comfortable without being intrusive. He sent us a packet of information about the area ahead of time and when we arrived, there was a bottle of wine awaiting us. Place was in pristine condition and the pictures don't do it justice.

- This home is in the middle of nowhere, which was perfect for us. BUT, It only took about 10 minutes to get to a general store down the road. It was a nice, central location to see may of the sites in the NE kingdom - Newport, Cabot, etc.

- Along those lines,easy to get to - as in our Civic made it up the gravel road, even on the rainy days.

- House is well equipped with the essentials - towels, linens, etc. The kitchen was great - it had spices, sugar, flour,coffee filters, etc. Unsure if those would always be there, but for us, we really needed very few things to buy at the general store aside from the groceries with which we made our meals. Huge 6 burner grill as well and a beautiful view to have a morning cup of coffee to. Never felt cold in the place with the way that it is heated.

- Piano, ipod hookups, flat screen tv, Wifii, wood burning stove. Enough to keep you occupied when indoors!

- Great way to learn about green living!

We loved our stay there. Would highly recommend.

WONDERLAND ABOVE THE CLOUDS

  • 5 of 5
Hoping that the house was as nice as it appeared in the photos... we were taken by surprise as we rounded the last corner. It is beautiful - and Huge -- surrounded by flowers with a backdrop of aroboreal bliss looking down on and across a bucolic scene which could have been pulled straight from a movie set.

The first night we sat at the table on the deck with glasses of wine and watched in wonder as the sun set and wispy clouds filtered in across the valleys below us and the distant lights slowly came on in the towns to the south and east. Quickly, the clouds became a storm and lightening flashed through the clouds in front and below us. It was amazing to watch it play out from above.

We picked fresh raspberries to have with breakfast, watched the birds fly from tree top to tree top at eye level, and listened to the bronze frogs call to each other near the pond.

We traveled to a few of the the nearby towns and had a good time exploring and shopping. Warning - if you stop to buy ice cream at the little place near the hardware store in Newton - get a SMALL - the Large cone was probably 10" high. Some of the locals were actually laughing as we walked away trying to figure out how to balance, eat them, and walk at the same time. Thinking we'd walk across to the beautiful lake that is shared between VT and Canada, within about 10 steps (way before we got to the park benches by the lake), my partner - looked like a 4 year old ith ice cream everywhere down her shirt even in her shoes. Wish I had a picture of that.

The last night - Saturday after 4th of July - the two towns below us had simultaneous fireworks shows. We were delighted to watch both sets of fireworks from our own private viewing platform.

We originally rented the house because we'd like to build something similar on our property. Bill spent a good deal of time going over how the alternative power systems work together and what we could expect, etc. Having stayed there for 5 days, I know what's involved really and that it's doable. Now, I'm really excited to get started on our project. I have no doubt that I would be comfortable living full time in a dome house. Next time we visit, we will bring friends. This house is made to be filled with laughter.
