I was lucky enough to stay at the domes last weekend when they first opened for this season. I have stayed there about 10 times over the last 10 years. It is without a doubt the best place to stay in the area. Always super clean and the owners are amazingly accommodating. I don't know for sure but I get...

I was most pleased with my stay. The Domes offer a unique setting not only from the outside but also from the inside. Everything was clean and well maintained. The bed was very comfortable and I really enjoyed the fact that there is a window on top of the bed. I love falling asleep with fresh mountain air blowing on...

Really novel, clean, spacious cottages, included excellent coffee. Joan (the host) was really helpful in pointing out neat things to see, places to eat, nearby hikes. Overall a great place and experience.

The lavender was in full bloom, sweet fragrance greeted us along with the friendly hostess more than accommodating to our young family...and on very short notice, as well. Complete tour of the super cute, functional 'hobbit' houses! Very comfortable for our family, and great atmosphere. Wonderfully void of a TV (but lots of reading material provided) to encourage the exploration...

Just one night but the reservation process was flawless, Joan was there to greet me and show me around, the location was perfect - walking distance to everything, a grocery store (open on Sunday) is right next door and several restaurants close by. The dome was a delight - fully equipped, right down to dish soap, anything you'd need in...

I have just returned from the most relaxing and refreshing trip I have been at for a long time. The destination was New Denver British Columbia, a charming village on Lake Slocan. The residence we stayed in was the Vila Dome Quixote. What a place, what a hospitality we received from the owner and the staff. We are looking forward...

This quaint dome cottage was just perfect. From booking to heading home, our stay was wonderful. The cottages are delightfully absent of technology and welcoming of pets. We had all we needed to dine in and if we needed some groceries- the store is right next door. Make Dome Quixote your home base for your New Denver adventures.

To be fair, we never actually got a chance to experience "cute & cozy" or "home away from home" because after weeks nobody returned our calls or emails concerning reservations. We appreciate this is not a winter operation but you shouldn't promise a timely response if you're not able to do it. Here's some news for you hosts: folks making...

We booked one night and stayed for two…and would have stayed longer but time dictated our reluctant departure. Our journey was to visit the places our 31 year old son had spent time in over 20 months of living in B.C. He tragically lost his life whilst hiking in the nearby mountains a year earlier and visiting this beautiful region...

New Denver is just a spit of a town and you can walk it all in short order. These "Dome" cottages are a unique opportunity. I had booked three well in advance for our trip and the staff was most helpful both in making and adjusting reservations and in check-in when we arrived. We discovered that food in town is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Domes consist of four unique dome cottages located in the heart of the West Kootenay, a short walk from the shores of pristine Slocan Lake. Each unit is self-contained, has relaxing curved interior spaces, a boutique decor and its own patio area with landscaped gardens. Set in the village of New Denver, The Domes are within walking distance of all village amenities: the network of hiking and cycling trails, kayak and board rentals, cafes, boutiques, galleries, museums and food stores. The property has beautiful views of the Valhalla and Selkirk Mountain Ranges, is central to three provincial parks and is located on two scenic loop drives. The Domes provide a friendly base from which to get out of the box and explore the historic West Kootenay region. ... more   less
