Overview

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.

  • Events Allowed

An absolutely phenomenal place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this dome home! It's truly wonderful, and Bill is a terrific host. There's plenty of room (there were 5 of us), beautiful views, everything works wonderfully. A+!

Vermont Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Solar Dome, and it never loses its charm and serene perfection. Gorgeous views, fabulous, open and airy, beautifully decorated home that somehow manages to be comfortable and family-friendly. Great location - easy to get into Stowe and Smugglers Notch area or Canada. Outdoors is paradise - blueberries and raspberries, fire pit, and (new) giant chess board which occupied out kids for hours. Bill (the owner) is a terrific host. We'll definitely be back.

Unique and fun experience

  • 5 of 5

The Solar Powered Geodome was amazing. Never stayed in anything like this before. House was clean and had plenty of dishes and cooking equipment. Owner Bill even stopped by to show us how to work the cast iron stove for heat on a chilly night. Visited some attractions and museums on the Northeast Kingdom. Really enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful and Fun Place to Stay

Enjoyed our stay at this unique destination. Very private, with beautiful views and gardens. The dome offers very comfortable, well equipped accommodations, with a fun vacation atmosphere. Convenient to Craftsbury Outdoor Center, and other NE Kingdom attractions. Would definitely stay here again.
