The Dome
A perfect slice of nature in a city
Dominique and the whole family were so welcoming at check in, the dome is a perfect glamping get away - even during a city break!! The bed was really comfy, wifi great and well located.The secret garden and fire pit are beautiful full of thoughtful touches. Dominique is also a fantastic communicator, with recommendations and quick reply’s. We’d love to stay again on a future trip to Portland.

The Magical Secret Garden
What a delightful spot tucked into a great neighborhood in Portland. Nestled in a piece of land tucked off a discreet side road, it feels like entering a secret garden when you arrive. The property with an orchard, fire pit, and hammock is a dream to hang out in, and you'd never believe you were in the middle of a city. Additionally, Mt Tabor (an incredible local park with a substantial off-leash area if you have a pup) and many great restaurants are within walking distance. The dome is perfectly placed on the property, so you can keep the blinds open (although there are blinds if you want strict privacy) and gaze out at the orchard, treetops, and stars all night long with no one able to look in. Because it is nestled in the trees with perfect angles to avoid direct sun and still have an incredible view, it kept a pleasant cool temperature all day, even when it was 80 degrees outside. The WiFi also worked great! Dom was so friendly and super responsive. A truly great host! I ended up extending my stay. I would give this my highest recommendation!

The Dome
It was very welcoming and cute! Although, the door to dorm is clear, so it’s not totally private. Still a sweet time!

The Dome
It was a very cozy and fun place to spend the night. Dominque was very welcoming and was easy to communicate with. Very quiet area, to get away from the city. The Dome wasn’t too warm despite the hot weather outside, it was insulated enough that it kept us relatively cool and allowed us to sleep easy. The seating area was very nice for relaxing in the evening, and reading a book or working on a project. Overall it was an excellent place to stay for a night, and we would highly recommend the experience!

The Dome
Super cool dome, made for a lovely experience and escape from the city. The host was very communicative, and ensured the dome was heated upon arrival. It was raining the night we stayed, but the heater helped to maintain optimal coziness, plus the sound of the rain just added to the experience!

Awesomeness in the Secret Garden
I loved The Dome in the Secret Garden. It felt private and very peaceful back there. Everything was perfect. Loved the little touches. Just a minute walk to the bus which will take you downtown. The bed was sooo cozy. There is a little window. You really don’t have to use the heater much. Next time in Portland I would definitely stay there again.
