This gorgeous, geodesic dome sits right on the North Fork of the Gunnison River. There's over 1/4 mile of river frontage for you fly-fishermen out there - GREAT trout fishing for rainbows, browns and cutthroat! The Dome is surrounded by a 20+ acre playground for your family to explore, fish, swing, play in the sandbox or just sit and listen to the river and watch an array of wildlife from our huge deck. We often see deer, elk, ducks, geese, bald eagles and wild turkeys sauntering by. An occasional black bear, too!
Make sure you wave to the engineer on the train that occasionally passes by -- he'll blow the whistle and wave back!
There is one, full bathroom and a spacious kitchen complete with all the amenities for cooking along with a large counter space for prepping & serving your meals.
Enjoy feasting while on the deck, or inside at our tall, square dining table that seats six to eight, or by the fire pit at our extra-large table that can seat 10+. Logs will be split for you to enjoy a nice campfire in the fire pit (s’mores!) or for a cozy fire in the fireplace inside.
The Dome has a studio-feel that accommodates up to 6 people with 1 queen-sized bed and 1 full-sized bed in the loft and 1 queen pull out sofa.
Ask us about The Homestead cabin on our property, too! Combine both cabins for large groups and have the entire property for your event! Accommodates up to 19 people (6 max at Dome and 13 at Homestead!)
Thanks for looking and happy travels!
(From The Dome's Guest Book):
Thank you so much for the peaceful and beautiful time we spent at that amazing place! We really loved and enjoyed the North Fork Valley, the hiking trips around Crawford and along the riverside!!!
We really loved the cozy and clean Dome, that everything we need was there, the awesome view during breakfast, the "hot-chocolate-time" at the porch, the quality-time in front of the fireplace, the awesome starts at night, the snow and the sunny blue sky!!! Rita and Jim - thank you for the lovely Christmas decorations and the always filled up firewood. It's for sure that we will be back some time (we hope soon)!!! Maybe around springtime or summer to enjoy the difference at that time!
This is our home away from home. We've created many, wonderful memories here with our friends and family. Looking forward to sharing this beautiful property with you, too!
We absolutely love Paonia and all it has to offer. The people are warm and friendly, the food is amazing and it has a small-town feel. There is so much to do here and if you're an outdoorsy-person, you'll be instantly hooked!
The peacefulness, the solitude, the whole property and space, and the soothing sound of the occasional train at the top of our property passing by.
