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.

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 4 of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed at the dome for his bday weekend. It was perfect! We didn't leave for anything, and that is exactly what we wanted. The dome was cozy, but we spent most of the time outside enjoying the views and the fire pit. The only reason for the missing star was that there was some stuff laying around outside that took away from the outdoor environment a bit.

Fun Geodesic Dome

  • 5 of 5
What I expected considering the extremely reasonable price. Nothing fancy, but it made for a great vacation. The location is 3 1/2 miles (2,000 foot rise) up a fun-to-drive dirt road (having AWD is a plus.) Very scenic, secluded, and quiet. Great location for day trips through some of the most spectacular mountains to Denver, Vail, or Breckenridge. It was a bit difficult to get used to the altitude of the dome house. It was difficult to descend the spiral stairway because the wedge shaped planks were much smaller than my size 12 foot. Overall, the dome proved to be comfortable and unique. It is also pet friendly. I would recommend this property, a bit rustic, but the setting can't be beat!

Wonderful escape!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our mountain escape. The drive/climb alone let us know we were destined for amazing views as well as supreme privacy! The chairs on the deck/lower roof became our home base. Watching the weather ebb and flow was fantastic during the hot summer. My FLA friend from out of town was thoroughly impressed and I couldn't have asked for a better vacation experience. Eclectic, roughing it, with a flair of artistic genius. Thanks Van Dome for the cherry on top of the best Colorado getaway :)

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!!!!
