UNIQUE DOME IN THE MT EVANS WILDERNESS

Idaho Springs Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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. 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 and Water and Electricity....no tv...no internet, but phones work well (3G network). In winter November thru May a 4wd car with good tires is required to reach the Dome. Rides can be arranged by the neighbors in advance if you would rather not deal with driving. The dome is luxurious in some ways, and rustic in others and its an all around a good value and unique place to stay.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • children welcome
  • pets considered

We are scientists and musicians , we've lost the manual for this dome rocketship-recording studio! Come help us find it! In the mean time we're using it as a guest house. Please let us know if you would like to make a record! Some instruments are available if the muse is with you....:)

I was in search of a K9 Shangri La...and I found it.

In the Mountains, but very close to everything you want to do, whether its in Denver or Further up the Hill!

Great place to stay! So unique! This rental can be sure to be a place to create so many memories. I definitely would recommend this place to anyone and have already begun talk with friends about another trip up to Colorado to stay in the Dome.

UNIQUE PLACE!!!

  • 4 of 5
This was just as described and really nice in the fact it was secluded-- I LOVED that aspect of it! I would recommend with small children that you do consider there is a steep staircase.

The owner was extremely nice and helpful, and really am glad we go to stay here!!!!

NEEDS A DEEP CLEANING

  • 2 of 5
Although this was an interesting property, I will have to say I was slightly disappointed in the fact that there is clutter everywhere and it is less than clean at sooo many levels. I felt like I was intruding in someone's personal space because there was a lot of things laying around that should have been thrown in a dumpster years ago. Also, I was not told to not lock the door and we got locked out after a pretty strenuous hike. The pictures posted of the deck and stairs do not illustrate how dangerous this property really is. I am surprised that it is not in violation of some housing codes of some sort. It also said that it sleeps 6-10 people. That is clearly not 6-10 adults. There are only 4 beds, and one hardly fits one person, and I personally do not pay to sleep on the floor. The stunning view, games and record player were definitely the highlights. Overall, I would say that half of the stated price would be fair, not the requested price.

Be sure to stop at Beau Joe's Pizza while staying here. Delish!!!

CAMPING WITH WALLS

  • 3 of 5
Recommend property for individuals not looking for creature comforts and who want access to a bathroom and kitchen vice relying upon the great outdoors. This property serves the purpose of meeting lodging requirements if you have activities planned in Idaho Springs and/or Mount Evans but any significant amount of time spent inside this property with a group larger than four people will potentially test your patience. Particularly since the architecture lends itself to hearing everyone and everything in the dome. I encourage the property owners to continue their renovations while investing some time/money into professional cleaning since you never know what a previous guest has left under kitchen appliances, even though some activities are legal in the state of Colorado, you probably have a variety of guests who are not as "liberal" with their lifestyle and habits. A very interesting space but you truly get what you pay for so manage your expectations...

RELAXING, PEACEFUL AND FUN

  • 5 of 5
This is such a cool place. My husband and I had a nice getaway weekend here, and very much enjoyed the peaceful surroundings. We bought some bird-seed the first day, which attracted several kinds of birds, as well has a large group of deer -- very fun to watch from the lowest level where the windows are great. We were glad there was no TV - the recorder player was perfect for us, with many great albums to pick from. Thanks for a very nice time!
