Funky, cool, and made for relaxation

If you’re looking for a bit of architecture with your
vacation, forego the traditional cabin or seaside cottage and try
staying in a
geodesic dome
. Part kit-house and all retro, domes flourished
with the counterculture and “return to the land” movement of
the 1960s and 1970s.

Now, the interlocking triangles are making a comeback on
vacation rental sites, where their off-the-grid amenities, secluded
locations, and funky styling make them top picks for architecture
nerds in need of some R&R.

We’ve found domes in deserts, forests, and everywhere in
between. From a
geodesic tent on a farm in upstate New York
to a
bohemian-chic retreat in Joshua Tree
, here are the seven best
vacation domes you can rent right now in the U.S.
