Geodesic dome on wooded lot, 20 min. from downtown Anchorage. Private room/bath with tub/shower, double sinks, queen bed. Shared amenities include kitchen, dining room, living room, deck, grill, washer/dryer, WiFi, cable TV, dog. RV & car parking.

The space

We live in a geodesic dome on a quiet mountainside in Eagle River. The home is architecturally interesting, eco-friendly and energy-efficient. It has lots of natural light, open living spaces, and nooks and crannies for reading, puzzles, board games, or quiet activities. We are a mile drive/walk from the Mount Baldy trailhead, 5 minutes from downtown Eagle River, and 20 minutes from downtown Anchorage.

Guest access

This listing is for a private bedroom (queen-sized) and bath with a tub/shower and double sinks on the main floor of the dome. The main floor has a washer/dryer, kitchen, living room, dining room, sun porch, and eat-in kitchen. Downstairs, we have another available airbnb guest bedroom and bath (listed separately), another living room, and a full kitchen. Guests are welcome to use any of these common spaces on the main and bottom floor. The large driveway has parking space for multiple vehicles and RVs. The home would be a good option for two couples traveling together. We have WiFi a large television on each floor with cable TV and a large selection of DVDs.

Interaction with guests

Please let us know what works for you as far as interaction. If you want suggestions for hikes, restaurants, or things to do, let us know! If you would like to just relax on your own, we won't disturb you. The house has quiet and common spaces, and we figure that if you're in one of the common areas, you're up for conversation. We live in the home and use the kitchen and main floor living room, so you’ll see us in the house and working in our offices. We sometimes have additional airbnb guests in the downstairs apartment, so you may meet some additional travelers as well. Our dog Chaco is a friendly border collie who stays in the house all day. She seldom goes downstairs or into the bedrooms (unless invited), and she will leave you alone if you wish, but if you like dogs, she will give you all of the attention you could possibly desire.

Other things to note

We collect rocks, minerals, fossils, antiques, and the house has an eclectic style.

Wireless Internet
Free parking on premises

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Not safe or suitable for children (0-12 years)

The home is non-smoking. Chaco (the dog) lives here and will be in the common areas on the main floor; we are unable to accommodate additional pets in the house. We usually go to bed around 11 pm, and because sound carries in the dome, we ask that you use the television and living spaces downstairs for late-night activities. We ask that you respect our privacy in the loft and in our offices, though we are happy to give you a tour of these spaces – many people are interested to see the unusual architecture.

Dayna was welcoming and ready to help despite our later than expected arrival. She could not have done anything more and nothing was any trouble. Directions to the house were fantastic and Dayna was quick in replying . The location was so pretty up on the hill just outside of anchorage and perfect for a start to a drive up north the following morning as you do not have any city traffic. Would stay again .

Dayna is a very nice host. She gave a lot of suggestions for places to check out in Ak. And we are very happy to know that Dayna and us graduated from the same university! The house is so special, the dog is so adorable.

We enjoyed our short stay at Tom’s and Dayna’s. They hosted us on very short notice and were very gracious. She even supplied little extras, toothpaste, chapstick, and other personal items. They were more than willing to provide input as to places to hike, restaurants, things to do or whatever you may want to know. We definitely would stay here again.

Dayna, Paul and Chaco were phenomenal hosts. Their place was a great base for my day trips. It was clean and in a beautiful location, close to JBER where I needed to be. Dayna was a wealth of information regarding the area of Anchorage and beyond. Very helpful tips and was excellent with her communication.I stayed in the second floor room and it was cozy and very clean. The kitchen and laundry access was convenient as well. I would definitely stay here again. Very nice family.
