The dOMelands are located on 5-acre tree-lined property in the CT river valley, snuggly nestled in the woods, off a private lane. There is plenty of peaceful privacy, yet we are just a few minutes away from "downtown" an adorable, progressive town, with some cute shops + amazing restaurants [River Tavern, Grano, Otto's Pizza, Riverside Thai]. For a killer cup of coffee, head to Sprouted downtown, where they brew up our own freshly roasted beans or for delicious breakfast, check out our friend Hedy's place, the Whistle Stop Cafe in Deep River. Cockaponset State Forest, the second largest state forest in Connecticut, is also just minutes away. The shoreline is about a 10 minute drive with beaches stretched along the coast in either direction.
Pitch a tent out in the meadow or along the shady tree-line. Enjoy a fire in our bonfire pit complete with a ring of wood stumps for hanging out or maybe even an stump dance party [weirder things have happened]. Lay out by + swim in the freshwater pool, jump on the trampoline, visit the backyard chickens, pick fruit + berries when in season, make pizza in the outdoor brick oven or play horse shoes. We offer a large shade structure with a picnic table + a few chairs. Alternatively, the shade tent can be used to erect your tent under for extra protection from the elements.
We have lots of wildlife that comes through including owls, hawks, turkeys, ravens, plus over 100 other birding species sighted on property. Deer, chipmunks, fox [don't worry they're afraid of people] + many more wander through from time to time.
Get away from the hustle + grind of the daily life. Come relax + chill at our mystical nature playground in the woods.

Great space. Pool to swim in, trampoline to jump on and fire pit to cook on. Plus a pizza oven. We had a great time. Our kids loved every minute and despite the rain on our last day didn’t want to go home. Will definitely come again.
Our group of 8 had an amazing time at the Domeland camp site. The property was beautiful, and we had so much fun channeling our inner child by jumping on the trampoline, riding down the zipline, and swimming all day in the freshwater pool. This is definitely more of a glamping experience, which we were definitely all about. Access to the guest bathroom/showers were a plus, and kept us feeling comfortable throughout our stay. Also the fire pit is huge and well kept. Wood and fresh water was provided throughout our stay as well. Melissa was a great host, and kept in contact when we needed her (like when a bunch of us couldn't figure out the pizza oven, she let us hop onto her grill to finish up our meal). Overall it was a wonderful stay, and we all hope to return again.
We had a great time at Melissa and Chris' place! In addition to the ample camping space, fire pit, and pool, they even had a nice sheltered area with picnic table and chairs, which came in handy when it rained. Definitely felt more like glamping :) Thanks for having us!
My family and I had an awesome time here. It was more of a glamping experience, something that we did not expect but turned out to be very fun. Although we were in a backyard, it was spacious enough to be very private. The brick oven was very convenient, and made great pizza! The pool was wonderful to swim in. I swam in the middle of the night, and the stars shined oh so brightly! Look up at night to count the endless stars! The trampoline channelled our inner "child."
The indoor bathroom was very convenient. The host was very respectful and nice.
