We stayed one night at the Denali Dome Home, on our way to a lodge in the backcountry of Denali. Our hosts were busy with a full house but were courteous and helpful, eager to impart useful information. We were accommodated with a fresh-cooked breakfast even though we returned a little late from our morning run. We rented a car from our hosts also, so we got a ride to and from the rail station.
Our first-floor room, with ensuite bathroom, was comfortable and pleasant. The bed was particularly comfortable. The water in the bathroom is somewhat soft, so it can take a while to rinse off soap. Not a big deal.
Outside of our room, we enjoyed the unique design of the home, with its dome shape and unusual windows. We arrived after a long train trip, so we were not up for much adventure that evening and appreciated the DVD library.
The grounds around the Dome Home are pleasant but a lot of mosquitoes were out when we were there, so we didn't explore much.
This was a unique place to stay, about a half hour's drive from the Denali RR station.
