This is our second time at the Dream Domes, this time in winter and it was even better (more than in the summer, even though it still was great). An incredible couples getaway in nature. Tje japanese hot tub in the winter is simply WOW! Looking at the stars and listening to the birds and squirrels while sipping on wine...

We had a wonderful stay at Ridgeback. The domes are equipped with just about everything you will need and you can tell that the owners have put a lot of thought and attention into the design and purchases that have been made to equip the domes. We hiked the two trails on the property, which were beautiful and very much...

We stayed at Ridgeback Lodge for three nights in a Dream Dome. This lodge exceeded all of our expectations. The Dream Domes are cozy & warm, with fully equipped kitchens & a bathroom that screams "glamping" complete with a rain shower head. Cold February temperatures & even a snowstorm on our first night was not an issue - the propane...

Even if the temperature was too cold to use the Japanese hot tubs, this is a great place to relax, and wind down. The owners are great and the accommodations are more spacious than expected. The pellet stove gave more than enough heat even at -22C! Even with a storm outside we were warm & cozy inside. We'll definitely try...

Spent two nights and totally loved it. Comfort, romantic and all the necessities to make for a comfortable stay. Enjoyed a nice walk in the woods, followed by skating on the pond. To top it all off a soak in the wood fired hot tub. We will be back!

We were excited, but our visit to #ridgebacklodge and its Dream Dome exceeded all expectations. There is no wifi, be prepared disconnect, however reconnect with your partner. The hot tub (a gigantic bath tub) was truly unbelievable and worth tending too. We spend hours under the stars! It would be wonderful in the summer (canoes and kayaks to rent) -...

Ridgeback Lodge is my go to for relaxation! In December my husband and I stayed in one of the Dream Domes and "Dream" is an accurate description. Everything about the Dream dome screams relaxation and intimacy. 2 nights is never enough. This past weekend we stayed in the deluxe cabin and had a very nice 2 days of relaxing. The...

We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Ridgeback Lodge. The hosts were friendly, informative, and left you to do your own thing but were available any time for questions. The geodome was spotless (I expected more cottage/camping clean than hotel clean), and super comfortable. The kitchen space was nice and adequate, we also enjoyed use of the bbq....
