Dome Of Your Dreams!

Family-friendly vacation home in Harpers Ferry
Located just a little over an hour from DC, 3 hours from Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, and about 5 from NYC, the dome is only a half mile from the beautiful Shenandoah River and less than a mile from the Appalacian Trail. Historic Harpers Ferry is just four miles away, and Charles Town's Hollywood Casino is less than a ten-minute drive. 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths, a huge pullout couch, additional couches and air mattresses allow the place to accommodate anything from a romantic weekend for two to a house party of a dozen. Previous guests have included families, couples, eco-women retreaters and century-ride bikers. Kitchen is not only fully equipped (pots/pans/dishes) but also stocked with spices, dry goods, and sometimes even beer - take what you need and leave your contribution for beverages and ingredients when you check out. As mentioned in the title, this house is truly unique - its a geodesic dome house (bucky ball), with a beautiful full-wall mural, spiral staircase, and wrap-around deck. Just like a regular house but better! New HVAC is keeping the dome cool at the tail end of the summer and warming the place quickly in winter. The central fireplace can get the place really toasty (and romantic :) as an alternative to the fancy new heating/cooling. Dogs OK with permission but they must be VERY housebroken and stay off the furniture. Sorry, no cats (allergies :(). For dogs there is a $50 additional pet fee payable by check. Little kids are great too, but it should be noted that the house is not child-proofed, and has an exposed spiral staircase (so recommend no pets or small kids on the second floor). Feel free to contact me with questions about the place or the area - I wish I could get out there more often!
Air-conditioned accommodations at this vacation home offer fireplaces and DVD players. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and separate dining areas. Bathrooms include showers and hair dryers.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

Kids Loved It!
What we loved: floor plan, kitchen was well-equipped, décor, comfortable beds and couches, deck, plants, interesting books, tv’s and access to streaming services. Not so great: the upstairs shower began dripping after we flushed a toilet and didn’t stop. We also killed two cockroaches. The basement lights in the main room didn’t work. Other details: I think with a little more work, this would be a great place for a family getaway, like a family Thanksgiving or Christmas in the mountains. Just be advised: this place is OUT THERE! if you’re wanting seclusion, you got it! If you want to pop in and out of Harper’s Ferry, this may not be the best option. I also wouldn’t recommend it for kids under 6 due to large gaps between the bars in the spiral staircase and the entry to the basement being a hole in the floor. Overall, my kids thought it was the coolest place ever and it was a great place for our family to crash after some hiking and sight-seeing.

5/5 Excellent

Dome da-dome dome DOME!
This was such a cool experience for us. We live near D.C., and during the pandemic, we just wanted to drive somewhere nearby where we could get away from it all and have something like a vacation for a couple of days. This definitely did the trick. The dome house is so unique! The location in the woods was nice but still in delivery distance to great pizza and restaurants. And it's so close to Harper's Ferry, where you can hike to beautiful peaks or walk around the adorable town. We highly recommend the dome house!

5/5 Excellent

Refresh and recharge
This quaint dome was just what we needed! Well stocked, charming and secluded. We enjoyed birdwatching from the back deck ! It's like being in the treetops. A lovely place to recharge

5/5 Excellent

Great weekend spot
It was a great, unique place to spend the weekend.

3/5 Okay

We had fun but there were some pest and furniture issues
Main complaints: We saw two mice and heard many more from the upstairs bedroom. Their chewing and scurrying kept woke us up at night and when we’d flip the light on, mice would scurry away. Luckily neither of us is scared of mice but it surprised us, that’s for sure. Neither couch in the living room is up to par. One dips down significantly in the middle and is quite old. The other is a futon with a metal mesh base, which is sagging. We played board games for several hours and could not get comfortable. I ended up sitting on the floor, which was somehow more comfortable. Lastly, there is a clicking in the basement that prevented people from falling asleep or staying asleep. We aren’t sure what it was.
