Breaking the mold of cookie-cutter hotels, this futuristic dome house is a relaxing retreat. Tucked away in the mountains, enjoy the sounds of nature while taking in some of the most scenic views of the county from the observatory areas at the top of the house. But just because it feels like an off-grid oasis, doesn’t mean there aren’t any modern amenities. The vacation rental comes equipped with a full kitchen, two bathrooms, central air conditioning and heating, WiFi and more. Spend your time exploring the 10-acre property or take advantage of the rental’s close proximity to all the Mercer County adventures like skiing, hiking and mountain biking.

All three vacation homes are situated on a 53-acre property that features walking trails and a small pond.
