The Geodesic dome being hosted by Lindsey is absolutely gorgeous and endearing. Everything mentioned in the listing and in the manual is totally accurate. Not a single detail is missing which makes the stay all the more adventurous as if you’re solving some puzzle in the off-grid setting! The sauna, shower, BBQ, fireplace facility- everything is beyond perfection!

This place is worth every single minute of your time, guys! Be here on time! We’re looking forward to exploring this yet again during summers!!It’s a 10/5 stars kinda place! Thank you Lindsey and team! :)

The place was really magical and romantic, me and my boyfriend went for a weekend away the city and we enjoyed the peace and quiet. It’s nice that it’s an hour away from our city edmonton. And it was really secluded so felt like it was just us. Everything that we needed was complete from all the utensils and cooking stuff and even portable chargers. Wish we stayed longer, would definitely go back and recommend. Thank you to the host ❤️

What a wonderful experience! Lindsey & Chris you thought of everything. Your property is so beautiful, restful, cozy and peaceful. It was the perfect little getaway. It’s amazing how much rest and connection can come from one night away!

Lindsey was a great host, very accommodating, and this place was kept in spectacular order.Pretty much everything you need is here aside from food and clothing. It was way more convenient to plan and pack for our stay versus the usual tenting.

The dome is super neat and we loved the sauna at dusk for the views we got in September.Highly recommended staying here. We were only able to do a single night but next time we definitely want to have a little longer rof a stay because "time flies when you're having a good time".

An incredible experience. The time inside the dome felt so cozy and luxurious. The surrounding area is gorgeous. All of the amenities were as described, and Lindsey was quick to respond to any questions. We spent our days outside, watched the sunset over the lake, and then had a wonderful time watching evening storm showers from the comfort of the lovely bed. I’m glad that we ordered the charcuterie plate to be there on arrival. It was delicious and set such a great tone for the weekend. We loved it as a summer getaway, and we will definitely try to return for a winter adventure one day.

We never thought that we could have a night so secluded and peaceful away from the city. We had such a romantic night and would recommend this for any couple looking to escape and enjoy a peaceful time segregated to unwind and enjoy a private area together
