Best Time To Visit
This is a four seasons accommodation option. It would be a gorgeous place to stay throughout any season.
However, when winter comes to the Hobbit house, it brings with it snow and ice. This can make getting to the house difficult, especially if you’re not used to driving in winter weather. However, if you take some precautions, you should be able to get to the house without any problems. First, make sure you have a set of chains for your tires. This will help you get traction on the icy roads. Second, drive slowly and carefully. Winter weather can be unpredictable, so it’s important to take your time and avoid sudden maneuvers. With a little preparation, you’ll be able to reach the Hobbit house safely in any weather. Snow is likely from December – March.
You are provided with all the essentials you need for your stay. There is no cooking area, but you can bring a camp stove to cook a meal outdoors. There is a coffee maker provided.
You’re in the middle of nowhere, so there is no tv or wi-fi, and being disconnected felt SO good!
Pre-Download A Soundtrack
The Hobbit house may be off the grid, but you will want to bring some pre-downloaded Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit soundtracks or movies on your phone or tablet. It really adds to the experience, and we honestly felt like we had stepped right into the Shire.
We had an incredible and lazy morning sipping coffee on the deck, admiring the breathtaking scenery. This is a truly special place that would be perfect for anyone who loves nature and desires a tranquil retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
There are a couple of small houses in view, but it still felt like we were the only ones around. However, we did notice a partially built Hobbit hole. The guestbook mentioned future plans for three Hobbit houses, including a community kitchen, that would make it a fun Shire to rent out with friends to share in the experience.
