If alcohol is ordered, all guests in the igloo must present proof of age.  Underage drinking is prohibited.  Any guest found to be underage drinking will be asked to leave immediately along with their entire party, with no refund granted.

What does “Family Friendly” mean?

Family Friendly means that there is something for everyone!  We offer:

  • Non-alcoholic drink options such as hot cocoa, soda and water;
  • Food options for those picky eaters like cheese & sausage, medallion sandwiches and assorted cookies;

Is smoking allowed?

Absolutely not. It is prohibited by Wisconsin State law. Any guest found smoking or vaping will be asked to leave immediately along with their entire party, with no refund granted.  Designated smoking areas are found by the hotel main entrances.

Is The Dome heated?

Yes, it is heated, but you will be on a concrete patio, during the winter season. In Wisconsin.

Please come dressed for a winter activity; hat, gloves, boots, and a few layers so you can self-adjust to your personal comfort level. There will be blankets and one space heater. The Dome will be pre-staged with the heater turned on pre-arrival.

Will The Dome be closed for inclement weather?

In the event of extreme cold, blizzard or dangerous, icy conditions, we may need to cancel a reservation to ensure the safety and comfort of our guests, including if you are a guest of the hotel. You will be notified via a phone call about rescheduling your booking or receiving a full refund.

Are pets allowed in The Dome?

Pets are not allowed in The Dome.

What happens if we damage The Dome?

The Dome can be damaged by impact, direct heat or puncture. We ask that you take precautions when moving in The Dome and refrain from touching the walls and structure.

We inspect, clean, sanitize and reset The Dome after each use. A damage fee may be added should any evidence of damage be found after your visit.

What is the restroom situation?

Hotel Marshfield, Libby McNeill’s and The Dome guests are welcome to use the indoor restrooms available in the foyer of both main entrances. We do recommend utilizing the facilities before entering The Dome to avoid unnecessary opening and closing of the door.

What is there to do inside The Dome?

Relax. Take in the peaceful surroundings. Share stories and laughter with your companions.  Enjoy one of our food experiences.  Listen to music using the provided Bluetooth speaker.  Read a book. The Dome will also have a coffee table big enough for food and drinks, but not a Monopoly game, too.  Please leave the board games at home or in your guest room.

Can we bring our own food and drink?

No. We do have several food and drink options and experiences on The Dome menu.

Alcohol must be purchased through Libby McNeill’s restaurant. Those caught carrying in alcohol will be asked to leave immediately with no refund granted. Wisconsin State law determines the sale of alcoholic beverages and jeopardizes our liquor license…please don’t.

How do I order food and drinks or the available experiences?

Items from The Dome Menu are pre-ordered at the time you make your reservation.  While in The Dome, there is an alert light for The Dome Host should you need additional items.

Are there servers to get more food and drinks when needed?

We try to limit the number of times we open The Dome as a way to keep the heat inside.  Our Dome Host will be by to check in on you and your group once or twice during your reservation.  You may also use the alert light in The Dome or call 715.387.2711 and ask for The Dome Host.

90 minutes is not enough, how do I book more than the allotted time in The Dome?

We allow ample time between bookings to clean, inspect, sanitize and reset between reservations. If you would like to add additional time slots, you can do so at the time of making your reservation.

Can I cancel or change my reservation?

Yes, our cancellation policy is 100% refundable before 48 hours (2 days) prior to your reservation.

You can also change your reservation if the change occurs within the 48-hour cancellation window, provided there is available time slots to do so without penalty. Cancellation within the 48-hour cancellation window will result in forfeiture of the rental fee.
