Guestbook comments from the owner

We brought our boat and had a great time fishing, swimming and tubing. This unique house was a perfect fit for our unique group! We also found the town of Littleton to be just too sweet. Everyone knows everyone and is very welcoming. Thanks for letting us enjoy the Dome Home for a week!

Amazing house, MUCH larger than it looks!

  • 5 of 5

This house was beautiful, it will sleep 11 but it was perfect for our group of 7. There is SO much room inside! There are 3 different "living room" type areas for comfortable conversation, but also plenty of open space with very high ceilings for whatever activities you can think up! The location is fantastic, right in the middle of the lake while at the same time quieted away in a private cove. Fishing was good, I think a lot of fish hide out in the shaded cove while everyone rips around the lake on boats and jet skis. We caught some pretty big catfish right off the boat deck! I would definitely recommend this house to any of my friends, but the walk down to the water might be difficult for a person with limited mobility.
