SANTA FE SUPER DOME, SANTA FE
A single-room dome perches on the rim of burnished red hills, just south of Santa Fe, in a sun-soaked basin rimmed by blue peaks. “Being a part of the landscape is why most of us live here,” says owner Trey Corkern. The dome is effectively a tent, so glampers best pack a sweater for cool desert evenings. Splurge on a private dinner to up the level of luxury here—Corkern is a former personal chef and will prepare and deliver your meals. nmmag.us/sfsuperdome
OFF-THE-GRID DOME AND PRIVATE HOT MINERAL SPRING, TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES
Wendy Tremayne built this solar-powered dome from reclaimed rebar and recycled paper, then decorated it with handmade, natural, and revivified items in a years-long art project she documented in a book, The Good Life Lab: Radical Experiments in Hands-On Living. “These beautiful, round spaces don’t feel like anything else because they aren’t,” says Tremayne, of the property designed in concentric rings to promote a sense of harmony. nmmag.us/torcdome
DESERT DOME AT BNC FARMS, CHAPARRAL
Sunlight streams through a skylight into this dome in Chaparral, southeast of Las Cruces. The interior offers homestyle comforts: Cook dinner in a full kitchen and crash on the couch to recoup after day trips to White Sands National Park or Dripping Springs Natural Area. Evenings outdoors can be spent snuggled up to a firepit and scanning the skies for the occasional tracer missile drawing a flaming line through the sky from White Sands
Missile Range. nmmag.us/desertdome
