Experience the unusual architecture that Taos is famous for in this charming, light-filled geodesic dome. This beautiful, artistic space is located 3 miles NE of town, with easy access to all areas of Taos-The Gorge Bridge, Taos Pueblo, Taos Ski Valley, The Plaza, and Hiking. Open sky walking trail out the door! It is about 12 minutes from downtown.

The space
The dome is a 30ft accross, with a bedroom loft space, an old clawfoot bath tub, a composting toilet, a little kitchen and open floor plan. It is best for a solo journey or a couple, but the twin sofa bed for a third guest is quite comfy. It sits on shared land, although access is totally private. We have a lovely walking trail right out the door. Enjoy big open sky! Be sure to note our directions instructions, as Airbnb link doesn't work in our town. Welcome!

Guest access
Guests have private access to the dome. We live on the property and are available in emergencies, but generally guests will have complete privacy.

Other things to note
The dome is wonderful, but not without its Taos quirks. We use ecofriendly, non-toxic chemicals to clean. We are critter friendly- we take living creatures outside rather than kill them and do not use pesticides.

The dome has an composting toilet. With a little instruction this toilet is easy, ecofriendly, and should not have a strong smell. If you get an odor, please let us know, as it may mean the temperature needs to be adjusted. The directions are posted in the pictures so you can get an idea of what to expect. It also has a beautiful clawfoot bathtub for bathing, but the kitchen sink also serves as the bathroom sink for teethbrushing, etc.

The Dome is a special place, and feels like a home, not a hotel. If you find anything uncomfortable or not to your liking, I encourage guests to let me know directly, so we can communicate and resolve the matter. I care deeply about everyone having positive experience, but if I don't hear anything, I can't make it better!

Location

El Prado, New Mexico, United States

The Dome is located in such a manner that just about any direction you head it is close to all that Taos has to offer. It is perfect for a little solitude from the "city" bustle of the Plaza, yet it is only a 12 minute drive to downtown heading South. In addition, heading North, it is 3 minutes from Highway 64 which provides access to Taos Mesa Brewing Company, the Taos Ski Valley, Arroyo Seco, the Gorge Bridge, and other site-seeing adventures. We are excited to share the beautiful walking trail and the huge sunsets and sunrises. Restaurants and shopping are 5-10 minute drive.

Hello. I was born and raised in NM and I love living in such a unique and beautiful place. I like to walk and ski and swim in the river. I am the Program Specialist and an Instructor for the Taos Education and Career Center. I enjoy working with people who are learning how to learn! I like to decorate and create spaces, which makes the Dome a wonderful outlet for me. I generally keep quiet after long working days, so it's not often that I meet my guests. Yet, I love knowing the people are enjoying the space and getting a true sense of the unusual architecture that Taos is known for!
