Unique New Denver Accommodation
If you have been following along with us for a while now, you know that we absolutely adore unique accommodations. A couple of years ago, we randomly came across The Adventure Domes in New Denver, BC, and knew that we had to make it there. The Adventure Domes consist of four unique dome cottages located in the heart of the West Kootenay, and also are only a short walk from the shores of pristine Slocan Lake. 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. It was a great home base to get out and explore the area and a great choice for New Denver accommodations. The domes have become quite the New Denver tourist attraction, too!
The Adventure Domes
Adventure Domes In New Denver were such a fun place to stay and have such a great personality to them with their unique architecture. They are simple inside, but you have everything you could possibly need. The beds are comfortable and we would wake up refreshed each morning. The domes had so much charm and character, and are definitely a unique option for New Denver accommodation.
From the outside, the domes are deceiving. The domes do not look that big, but once you step inside there is a lot of space. We stayed in dome cottage #2 and two adults and four kids six and under fit comfortably for three nights. The other domes have will sleep a maximum of three to four people, depending on the dome.
The kids were so excited to be staying somewhere that is “SO COOL!”, as they said over and over. They had a great time with the acoustics from the top level. The outside look of the domes really adds the extra appeal; it was such a quiet and calm little dome village. Each of the adventure domes also has its own little outdoor patio and the gardens surrounding the domes were lovely. We had great timing as the garden had the lavender in peak bloom!
