Behind the Scenes: A Day in the Life of Dome Hosting

Greetings from the heart of our ranch, where the day unfolds with the rhythm of hooves, the warmth of woodstoves, and the dedication of meticulous cleaning. Join us on a realistic journey behind the scenes, as we share the raw and rewarding moments that shape our day in the life of dome hosting.

Rise and Shine: Tending to Ranch Companions

Our day doesn't begin with the aroma of coffee; it starts with the sounds of the ranch coming to life. Before the sun fully rises, we're out tending to our animal companions. From feeding ponies to ensuring the goats are ready for their daily mischief, the ranch hums with life as we connect with our four-legged friends.

After the morning chores with our beloved animals, there's a quiet pause. We indulge in a well-deserved coffee break, savoring the first moments of the day's tranquility. The aroma of freshly brewed coffee mingles with the crisp morning air, offering a brief respite before diving into the bustling day ahead.

Woodstoves and Hot Tubs: Hubby's Morning Ritual

As the ranch animals settle into their day, my husband takes on the responsibility of igniting the woodstoves and prepping the hot tubs. Ensuring that each dome is cozy and inviting, he transforms these spaces into sanctuaries of warmth that await our guests.

Cleaning Chronicles: My Picky Passion

Now, the real work begins. Armed with my cleaning supplies and an eye for detail, I delve into each dome from top to bottom. I'm not just cleaning; I'm ensuring that every nook and cranny meets my high standards. It's a labor of love, but the satisfaction of stepping back to see a spotless dome is worth the effort.

Hiccups and Fixes: The Stressful Reality

Reality check: not every day is seamless. There are hiccups—fixtures that need fixing, glitches that need unraveling. That's where my husband becomes the hero, swiftly attending to the unexpected challenges to ensure everything is in perfect order before the next guests arrive. It can be stressful, but overcoming these hurdles is part of the job.

Personal Touches: Crafting Memorable Moments

With the domes pristine, it's time for personal touches. Whether it's a bouquet of wildflowers, a handwritten note, or a special surprise for anniversary bookings, we relish in creating moments that make our guests feel truly at home.

Ranch Duties: From Laundry to Lawn Mowing

The day doesn't end with clean domes. Laundry demands attention, and the ranch requires its own share of care. In the summer, hours are spent on the lawn mower, and shoveling poo becomes a task of both necessity and humor. It's gritty, but it's the reality of maintaining our beloved ranch.

Reflection and Reward

As the sun sets on our bustling day, there's a sense of fulfillment. The stress, the challenges—they fade away in the glow of a job well done. Knowing that our guests will step into a space filled with warmth and personal touches, we find solace in the rewarding nature of our work.

This is the reality of dome hosting—messy, challenging, but undeniably beautiful. Thank you for peeking behind the curtain and sharing in the authenticity of our daily life.
