Experience a one of a kind stay in our floating, star gazer geodesic dome on beautiful Fox Creek! This 4 season, glamping stay is only steps away from wineries, breweries, beaches, shopping and much more. Our unique reservation provides you with a calm floating experience, leaving you rested, reconnected and ready to explore incredible Essex County, Ontario. We look forward to meeting you and sharing this creative space!

The space
Nestled along the creek bank with a pleasant outdoor sitting area you will find our one of a kind floating dome. From your parking spot you will be given a private 2 seater gator to transport yourself for the 1 min ride to the other side of the creek where your unit is located. Spaciously spread out with a BBQ, love seat with centre ice cooler, picnic table, fire pit and outhouse, you’ll have everything you need to enjoy yourself on your glamping vacation. While sitting outside with vineyard and water views you can also take in the array of wildlife that surrounds you, geese, ducks, bald eagles, fish, herons, turtles etc. Inside the dome you will find it equipped with everything you need for a convenient, peaceful stay. The small kitchenette includes all kitchen ware from forks, knives, plates, bowls, pots/pans etc. Small conveniences such as shampoo, soap, towels, coffee, coffee press, etc are also provided. A hand pump sink is available for washing dishes and holding your shower water that is then pumped from a lithium battery pump shower. The shower is an off grid shower that provides you with an air temperate rinse. If you desire a hot shower you can boil some on the BBQ or leave some in the sun to warm. There is a large outhouse right outside the dome with a chemical portable toilet that is switched between guests. The shower basin inside was also designed to fit the portable toilet. This allows you to keep it inside if you are staying in the middle of winter and do not wish to walk outside at night.

The dome also has a provided cooler to keep any food or drinks cold (please note there is no longer a fridge, but a large cooler), air conditioning for warmer days and a romantic and suitable wood burning stove for the cold nights. The mini fridge and lights in the dome run on 12volt batteries, providing a beautiful mood setting, and the air conditioning and 42inch television (only for DVD use) run off a gas generator located outdoors with a remote control start for your convenience. The power bar has space to charge your phones or other electronics. Also provided are electric space heaters to assist the wood burning stove at night so you won’t necessarily have to get up in the night to throw more logs on the fire.

A comfy queen bed with star gazer windows above you allow you to look up at the country night sky while listening to the surrounding wildlife at night. If weather keeps you inside you can still enjoy your meals or afternoon wine located beside the panoramic window looking out over the water.

Please note, even though the dome has been built and designed for a convenient stay, it is still is a glamping experience with a camping feel/qualities to it. If you are a fun, outdoors, adventurous person or couple, you will love your stay in our floating, geodesic star gazer dome!

All wood for the campfire, as well as the wood burning stove is all complimentary. The gas for the generator is also provided.
