Other things to note
Welcome to Square Bed - Round House
Where you will never be backed into a corner!

This home is the oldest geodesic dome in Minnesota, located in Center City, the state’s oldest and continuously inhabited Swedish settlement. Swedish immigrants travelled here during the 1850s directly from Ellis Island, the United States’ busiest immigration station located in New York Harbor, where the Statue of Liberty now stands. A photograph of the large Lutheran church constructed in 1882, (standing at the turn onto North Main Street) is displayed within the halls of the Statue of Liberty to commemorate these early settlers.

This home was constructed in 1964 by Rollie Westman, a native of the community. As well as being recognized as a professional water skier, expert snow skier, and northern wilderness explorer, he remains a locally recognized personality and creative craftsman. The home’s foundations are two grain silos constructed out of banded concrete blocks, and he constructed the geodesic dome, above the silo that now provides the main communal living space. The circular platform covers the swimming pool that he first placed there, converting it later into the sauna room you see today. His memoir of the extensive paddling trips he undertook during the late 1960s, from Lake Winnipeg to Hudson Bay, is titled The Gods, Churchill, and Yukon by Canoe and is on the bookshelf in the master bedroom.

Square Bed - Round House is located along a narrow isthmus with lakefront on both Center Lake and Pioneer Lake! At over 3,200 square feet it's perfect large groups and multiple families.
This home is only available as a vacation rental for a limited time.

They invite you to explore Center City’s unique history, premier outdoor recreation, and local artists.
