This unique Dome House feels like being inside a giant tree. It was built by civil rights attorney Sherwin Shayne and his friends over several years beginning in 1970. You will occupy the upper two levels, an expansive open floor plan with no interior walls (other than the lower level Bath) finished entirely in wood. Large windows provide views of the forest and birds. Skylights for stargazing & moon beams, and a private deck for listening to soothing owl song.

I am so pleased to welcome guests to stay here at my "Jewel in the Forest" with choices for several very "glamorustic" magical houses and cottages. It is so rewarding to know that people can come here to stay for a vacation, business trip or even a retreat for healing and leave…
