Can you imagine a place more welcoming than the Hobbit House? Even someone who has never read or watched any of the Lord of the Rings series should have probably heard of it. A Hobbit House is where Hobbits (the little creatures that they are) reside. It’s quite small for the average human but supposedly quite charming. While the Hobbit House is purely fictional, somebody actually asked an architect to build him his very own Hobbit House. The client is a major Lord of the Rings fan and wanted a place to store all of his LOTR memorabilia. A personal museum of sorts. And what better place to store them than in a structure that’s out of the novel itself.
Another Hobbit House that made its way into reality is the Hobbit House Bed and Breakfast in Hawaii. This lodging is just 30 minutes away from Volcanoes National Park. It is located on the hillside above Waiohinu Village on the south side of The Big Island of Hawaii and is said to be quite the popular honeymoon suite. The living room bay window also gives guests a view of humpback whales during the winter. All in all, it has quite a cozy environment, inspiring cups of hot chocolate.
Another Bed and Breakfast Hobbit House is located at the Isle of Wight in a peaceful countryside setting. This place is more concentrated on country skills and woodland crafts, allowing guests to learn and appreciate them. Some of the activities in the area include: badger watching and carriage driving. However, there are some activities where children are not encouraged to participate because of the nature of the tools to be used.
These are only a few of the Hobbit Houses around the world. Each one is different from the other yet they all possess some sort of charm. And I’m pretty sure there would be more Hobbit Houses springing out in the future.
