We loved it! The manager told us to expect winter opening in the future, so check it out for winter activities.
Architecturally unique and in a beautiful location. Due to heavy demand we stayed one night in a room in the main building and one night in a "cottage" so we can review both. Prices were very reasonable.
The room was small, extremely clean, and good value. Shared, spacious bathrooms down the hall - we never had to wait in spite of a full house. Bathrooms big enough for two to shower together - nice after a dusty day's hiking. Shared kitchen so you could cook for yourself, store lunch foods etc.
Cottage was much larger with good sized bathroom and a small kitchen area. Again, spotlessly clean and well equipped.
Note: neither room came with a TV. There is a shared hot tub in the garden. Each cottage has a small patio.
Next door is a brand new grocery store. Down the road a short way are restaurants, coffee shops etc.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Domes consist of four unique dome cottages located in the heart of the West Kootenay, a short walk from the shores of pristine Slocan Lake.

The property has beautiful views of the Valhalla and Selkirk Mountain Ranges, is central to three provincial parks and is located on two scenic loop drives. The Domes provide a friendly base from which to get out of the box and explore the historic West Kootenay region. ... more less
