About the 30-foot River Overlook Dome

30' Dome - Cedar Bloom Farm

One of a Pacific Dome’s amazing qualities is its large bay window, which is perfect for solar passive heating, especially when facing south. The clear marine vinyl allows perfect light transfer, while the luminous architectural fabric cover lends a Zen-like ambiance while allowing for maximum heat gain. With the addition of winter liners in snowy winter climates, many clients have reported that they don’t even need to light their woodstoves when the sun is shining.

The 30-ft. Pacific Dome can comfortably accommodate up to four guests. Although the dome is ideal for two to four people, bedding is only included for 2 people – so, if you have children or other guests, feel free to bring extra pads and bedding for the floor area. Please, no shoes in the dome, though

Internet is available yet limited. Cell phone service works great if you have AT&T or Verizon.

While the River Overlook Dome does not have indoor plumbing, the shower and bathrooms at Cedar Bloom are centrally located and offer a relaxing, spa-like experience. The dome includes electricity along with a charming kitchenette. Cedar Bloom hosts invite you to use their lovely, spacious communal kitchen, whenever possible – it’s equipped with everything you need to cook your meals!

The dome includes a clean, queen-sized mattress outfitted with a touch of elegance. There’s a comfortable lounging couch – the couch is an additional sleeping option.

The 30-foot River Overlook Dome offers plenty of space to securely tuck away camping gear and valuables.

When it’s cold outside, the dome has a wood-burning stove, where you can cozy-up and take in the forest views. That said, Cedar Bloom cannot guarantee the stove will always keep the dome warm – due to its solar passive heating, the dome doesn’t require insulation during optimal seasonal temps.

However, for your comfort, there are electric blankets inside – and, you can always grab hot-water bottles for extra warmth. If you’re looking for added warmth during cooler weather, The Gnome Dome, which is a separate listing, does have an electric stove inside.
