At home in the Shire... er... Montana

We activated this fantastic listing the other day – it turns out you don’t have to travel all the way to Middle Earth to visit the Shire and its inhabitants, you just need to go to Montana. The Hobbit house is a 2-bedroom vacation rental located in a remote valley in Trout Creek, MT. In the property description, owner Steve Michaels writes:

Surrounding the hobbit home is a village that comes to life at night with the magical display of lights from the cavalcade of mushrooms that line Hobbit Lane to the lighted mural of a whole Hobbit Village. The excitement is heightened when these fairy structures begin to light up one after the other at dusk. If you are really lucky…and quiet, you may see the shadow of Bilbo Baggins or catch a glimpse of him at home as he likes to stay up night drinking ale and entertaining his friends from The Shire.

This Hobbit house comes complete with everything from basics like WiFi and a gas grill to magical mountain views and visits from a resident bald eagle. Bring your own imagination!
