• Tiny. Space to think, sleep, be.
• Quaint. Built into a prairie hillock, could just as well be called the hobbit hole!
• Comfortable. Wired. Resilient to heat and cold.
• Customized. Hand built down to the bed, desk, skylight, stove.
What a unique experience! Kyle's Gnome Dome is in the middle of a burgeoning 'eco-village' in NE Missouri. It's a little out of the way, which was exactly what I was looking for. The village was busy with activity, both socially and with natural building projects, and the Gnome Dome allowed me to interact at my own pace. It was clean, comfortable (even as the mercury reached into the 90s) and very quiet (even in the middle of a thunderstorm). Plus, Kyle was super helpful with information and orientation. This was more than just lodging; it was an "eco-adventure!" No extra charge.
Kyle made me feel very welcome, and was very accommodating. He offers a great tour of the ecovillage for any guest who is interested. A few cautions I would give to guests are that this is definitely a space for only 1 guest, and come with a plan for adventure and learning. The ecovillage is a fascinating place to learn and meet some very creative people and a very different way of life.
Kyle was an incredible host. He welcomed us to the Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage with an in-depth tour and delicious meals with his Critter kitchen community. The other residents of the Ecovillage were extremely hospitable. During our short stay, we learned so much about how Dancing Rabbit is reducing their environmental impact and building community in an intentional and alternative way. We ate and slept well and had beautiful weather. I can honestly say this airbnb was unlike any other experience I've had. Thank you, Kyle!
