For anyone tired of the traditional ceiling in their vacation home, these geodesic dome homes offer a retro alternative.

Most of these domed homes were built in the 1960s and 1970s, especially in ski and resort towns. And according to Curbed, a few have recently popped up on Airbnb and VRBO.


This dome is set on a secluded farm in the southern Catskill Mountains. It features an outdoor kitchen, grill, fire pit, outdoor showers and a claw-foot bathtub.


Dubbed “Cedar Creek Hideaway,” this 2,000-square-foot home near Mt. Hood, Oregon, features a vaulted great room, wrap-around deck and a pool table, according to Curbed.


This relatively smaller dome only has one bedroom and one bath. But it’s located on five acres and next to thousands of acres in Colorado’s Mt. Evans Wilderness. [Curbed]Christopher Cameron
