Lord of the Rings fans, this is your dream come true. These little houses were built and designed most likely by creative and inspired Tolkien enthusiasts. You’ll feel transported to another world, one where hobbits roam Middle Earth and the quaint countryside is peaceful and tranquil enough to walk around barefoot and not have a worry in the world. Your adventure may not be as action-packed as Frodo’s, but maybe that’s a good thing. A little R and R never hurt anyone, and wherever you choose to settle down for a few days, the landscapes that surround you will draw you in and invite you to explore the wonders of nature that so often are underestimated and under-appreciated. Hobbit houses or earthen shelters are breezy in the summer, cozy in the winter, and protected from the elements all year round. They blend harmoniously into the surrounding landscape, taking advantage of the natural shape the Earth provides. So kick off your shoes and wander through your own Tolkien adventure.
