The Greenhouse is located in a serene ecological preserve that is limited to just a handful of residents. The area is full of vibrant flora and fauna and perfect for stargazing and bird watching. While there is complete privacy and seclusion, amenities are just a short drive away. Crest is home to many families as well as artists, writers and other eclectic souls. The geodome has stylish amenities and the Scamp trailer provided fills in the gaps such as kitchen, bath and additional sleeping areas. There is a lovely small firepit along with seating for 2 on the outside deck that is perfect for late night chatting. It's intentionally a small intimate area but there is room for others to gather at the firepit. This is propane that we provide and there are no open fires allowed. Please be reasonable with the propane as it can get expensive but we do want you to enjoy yourself. This area is great for hiking, rock climbing and nature walks. The dome does get pretty chilly at night and can be very warm in the late afternoon. Please remember this is glamping and we are not asking $350 a night like the ones that are basically like a house. We want you to have more of an off-grid experience in a beautiful setting at a modest price. We do have a few propane camping heaters inside, a heated blanket and several nice throws. The windows in the dome do open up to let a breeze blow through and we also have a solar vent fan and a regular fan to help with the afternoon heat. The ceilings are 16ft tall. There are 2 solar generators in the dome and one is a Jackery that provides 1600w and we have an EcoFlow Delta that provides 3600 watts. These alone would supply energy for almost a week a but an electric space heater would kill them in hours so we try to avoid it. The 2021 Scamp 16" Deluxe is a nice unit that has barely been used. These fiberglass trailers are designed compact for small families and evolve around efficiency. It has sleeping for 2(full) with a memory foam mattress but a 3rd(preferablly a child) could sleep on the small dinette area. There is a small refrigerator, microwave, 2 burner gas cooktop, sink, dishes, pans, Kuerig, coffee provided, etc. The bathroom is small and has a toilet that flushes, hand sink and a small shower. We do run power(extension cord) and water to the trailer but PLEASE don't run all of the big electronics at once as it's a bit too heavy of a load. This is a 4 acre property and we do live about 100 yards away but we prefer to have zero interaction so you can have your own space. I can do a quick walkthrough of everything though if the time frame allows. You can roam the property or walk deep into the preserve if you like. We do have ducks, guinea fowl, and English Bulldog and an obnoxious Border Collie/Healer Mix. The property is down a long dirt road and it is a bit easier to get to during daylight hours but totally manageable at night.

The Mountain Dome
This place was awesome! We wanted a relaxing meditation-style retreat and this place delivered. Daniel was a great host, very helpful and responsive! The dome / camper setup is a winning combination. Very well stocked with power, heat, fans, and blankets. We spent hours with the record player at night. Sunlit yoga. You’ll find yourself wanting to spend time in the dome throughout the day because it just feels so awesome to be in there. There are maybe 2 adjacent properties, but you still feel retry secluded and private. Walking back up the road is a challenging hike unto itself and rewards with some spectacular views. Everyone we came across was nice as could be. We felt very welcome. 10/10 would book again.

We had an amazing time at this spot. Daniel did a great job at giving detailed instructions and making sure we had everything we needed. Between the dome and the trailer, they provided everything we needed for a great time. The dome is spacious and comfortable and the view is incredibly beautiful! We would definitely recommend and will be visiting again.

First time Geo Dome
Daniel's Geo Dome is inspiring. The decor is thoughtfully done and it has everything you will need for a nice relaxing stay. The dome itself is built very well and everything inside is very high quality. The trailer where the bathroom and kitchen are is sufficient. A little tight but it's better than doing your business in the woods. Its supplied with bowls, etc if you want to cook in there. If you're staying during the cold season, make sure to bring warm clothes for the evening. It's very cold inside the dome at night. Overall great experience. Daniel was very detailed with instructions and accommodating.

Daniel hand crafted a beautiful piece of property. He thought of everything when it came to glamping and more. He personalized the dome with a record player, classics records and amusing books. The bed was extremely comfortable and the view is memorable.
