    About this property

    Dome Of Your Dreams!

    Vacation home in Harpers Ferry with kitchen and patio
    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.

    3/5

      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.

      5/5 Excellent

        There's no place like the dome!

        No complaints, just praise! This was such a perfect place for our group get-away. Billy was the ideal host too, well-prepared and so communicative. If you're going to Harpers Ferry with a big group, this is the place for you!

        5/5 Excellent

          Great place

              The cabin was great! Less then 20 minutes from Charlestown and fit 8 comfortably.
