About This Listing
A great daylight space nested on the edge of the woods. Be close to nature but also close to our house for modern convinces.
Just built - our new 165 sq ft Geodesic Dome - Day light with beautiful pine floor. Built from wood growing 10 feet away. 65 feet away is the main house where there is a great country Kitchen and bathroom for your use. The Dome has no power or heat - so it is like camping. We have a great LED light for it.Very peaceful space where you can get in touch with nature and yourself.
You are also welcome to tour our Organic Farm and during season, even help out and enjoy some fresh organic produce.

Other Things to Note
We also have a small organic farm and welcome visitors to come tour it and even help out.
Just treat the place like it was your own - no smoking.
Robert is wonderful, warm and welcoming. We had a fantastic time at the dome, which is perfect for anyone who wants to be in the woods but hasn't brought a tent on their travels! The dome is beautifully constructed, with windows and a skylight full of woodland views. We woke up in the morning surrounded by birdsong: Perfect!
Staying here, escaping busy NYC, was a very special and great experience. We stayed in Roberts Dome together with our two kids who also really liked staying here. Robert was very friendly and cooked us breakfast and gave us a lot of god tips for things to do in the Litchfield area. We would love to come back!
I loved staying at Robert's farm. I felt welcome and the cabin was exactly how it was described on the listing. I loved waking up with the sound of woodpeckers around and the rustic cabin fit my needs well.
Robert was a gracious and wonderful host. We shot the majority of a low-budget short film at his sprawling organic produce farm. My cast and crew all stayed on-location at the main house, geo dome, and beam barn.
Since there was no heat, it was very cold there at night and sometimes during the day, but Robert offered the main house for nighttime and gave us plenty of blankets. He even gave some of our crew a ride back to the train station.
He was very accommodating and kind.
Robert was a great host! We arrived while he was out, but he'd left a note with all the pertinent information. The dome was exactly as described, and we loved it! Spacious but also cozy, and there was a bench right outside, as well as an outdoor table and fire-pit closer to the main house.
It was a bit chilly at night (expected, the only problem was that I'd forgotten a hat to wear while sleeping), but the bed was very comfortable and Robert had provided very warm blankets. The skylight was beautiful (sleeping under the stars is always nice), and the lantern and flashlight Robert gave us for the nighttime came in handy.
In the morning he made us blueberry pancakes and coffee (delicious!), and gave us some great advice for where to get lunch that day.
We only stayed one night, but would gladly return for a longer stay in the future.
Robert was a wonderful and very generous host. He recommended places to hike that he enjoys, told us about a local flea market, and made us delicious blueberry pancakes for breakfast! The dome was a really cool space and just as beautiful as the photos. It was very comfortable and a unique place to stay. We really enjoyed staying in the dome and would love to come back to visit again!
Robert was an absolutely amazing host who went above and beyond for us; the Dome was amazing, even better than in the photos, and his cooking was sublime! Can't recommend highly enough
