This was such a cool place to stay. The dome and bathroom were immaculate and modern. Lots of places to hang out and thoughtful little touches throughout. (really, a s'mores kit! board games! the Lonely Planet guide!) It's definitely off-grid and rural--USB charging only, and If you're not good at tuning out roosters, bring earplugs.

We used this as our base to see South Point (really close) and Volcanoes NP (about an hour), and were really happy with the experience. Super convenient check-in/check-out. Thanks Ilya!
