Dome Airbnb in Ontario.

There's a unique new spot for getaways in Ontario, and you might have to look twice in order to find it. Highlands Hideaway is an Airbnb that just opened on October 19, and you can fall asleep in a dome beneath the stars.

Located in Algonquin Highlands, the rental comes with a 4-bedroom cottage and geodesic dome, allowing for a grand total of 10 guests to stay.

The cottage has a modern interior, with floor-to-ceiling windows, a full kitchen, two bathrooms, and modern decor. There's a movie room complete with a projector, a games room with ping pong and a Pac-Man machine, and more.

The geodesic dome can be found in the backyard, and it makes for a unique glamping experience. Two thirds of the dome is mirrored, so it almost looks invisible and camouflages with its surroundings.

The transparent part gazes into a forest, so you can enjoy nature views from inside. The dome is fully insulated with heating and cooling and can be used year-round. To make your stay even more relaxing, you can warm up in the 6-person hot tub and unwind in the 8-person sauna.
