Solar-Powered Dome in Kennebunkport, Maine


This dome isn’t tiny, but it’s amazing! The three-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath structure sits on 42 acres of private woodland in Kennebunkport, Maine, and looks like a true retreat from it all.  The structure is all solar-powered and offers a hammock forest, fire pit, and beautiful forest views.

Inside, the open-concept dome has a living room, dining area, and kitchen that flow together seamlessly. A staircase goes up to the “loft” bedroom, where two twin beds rest side-by-side near a reading nook. There are also two queen bedrooms, and a full bathroom with a two-person shower stall. Could you live there?

Details:

The Dome is an open, loft-like structure with no doors. In the main structure, there are three bedrooms (two queen & two twin beds). The beds are well hidden behind walls, so there is visual privacy for sleeping and changing, but when everyone is in their bed, you could easily have conversations with each other. One bedroom on the second floor has a curtain door that allows you total visual privacy. Be sure you’re friendly with people you are booking with!

The bathroom does have a proper door, a large two-person shower, and a sunroom that gets nice and toasty when the sun is out, winter or summer.

The Dome is completely off grid, but is no different than a normal home. It is powered by solar energy and propane and has regular toilets, sinks, and showers.

The propane tank will always be full upon arrival, however, the solar energy cannot be controlled. In the summer when the sun is strong, you shouldn’t have any issues with power. If you are staying in the winter you may need to be more conscientious of your power consumption especially if there are multiple cloudy/snowy days. If the Dome loses power, there is a generator that you can turn on that runs off of the propane tank.

There are 120V outlets throughout the Dome that will power your personal devices, but we ask that you only use the appliances we supply for you and do not use or bring high-use appliances like electric tea kettles, crock pots, hair dryers, straighteners, irons, etc.

    Yes, it is uniquely beautiful and has some wonderful design ideas. But, I couldn’t even begin to fathom the cost of just the land alone in Kennebunkport (as someone who grew up in ME) much less this unique home built on it…which clearly has to be in the 3%’ers realm. The summertime daily Airbnb rates also reflect that.
