I don’t know what it is about round homes, but I adore them! This particular octagonal structure was inspired by a triad of home designs: the Mongolian yurt, Navajo hogons and Native American hidatsa lodges. The result is a perfect vacation spot in Colorado dubbed the “Solargon.”
The interior has a studio-style setup, complete with a leather sofa, comfortable queen bed, and functional kitchenette. Then there’s a separate bathroom complete with a shower stall with “barnwood” tile.
But you really can’t beat the location — tucked in a corner of 40 private acres which abuts BLM land on two sides with mountain views. Book your stay here.

Would You Live in This Round Home?
The lovely home blends in with the surrounding nature.
I like the way they used to bathroom to create walls for the bed and kitchen.
French doors let in lots of light.
Skylight is an awesome touch.
I might want a sneaky loft above the bathroom.
A compact stove/oven, perfect for eating in.
The place really does come fully-stocked.
They really figured out how to situated things well in an “odd” shape.
Flush toilet and toiletries included.
Love that tile in the bathroom.
View from the front deck.
What a private location!
Oh man, that view!!
Pinch me! It’s like a dream.
