This is one of the most realistic Hobbit-inspired homes we’ve ever seen, bar none. It was built by tiny-house entrepreneur Kristie Wolfe, and you’ll be glad to know that you can rent it.
The house stands above the gorgeous uplands of Orlando in central Washington and is just 288 square feet large. Make no mistake, though: this humble abode has all the necessary amenities every hobbit would ever need. J. R. R. Tolkien would be proud.
What Hobbit house would be authentic without the signature circular door? That’s included, of course. Inside, you’ll find barrel-like rooms with round entryways, porthole windows, and an oversized stone fireplace. But the best part of the interior is the views you get — with the portal wide open, you can gawk at the rolling hills and be astonished by its beauty. For a moment, you’ll feel what it’s like to be part of the world Tolkien created.
If you get sick of staying indoors, you can go outside to enjoy the little front patio, complete with a wattle fence and a rickety gate to boot. In any case, you’ll be ensconced in this ultra-private, ultra-isolated wonderland, with the birds serenading you in your quiet times, and the wind violining across the trees.
The Hobbit Hole is available for booking online, but since the demand is insanely high, you’ll have to make an advanced reservation to score a stay. Also keep in mind that if you plan on going there during winter, the snow gets pretty deep.RENT IT NOW
