Three Washington State Spots to Soothe Your Hobbit Soul

...and two of them you can rent!

I lied, just a bit, about this post. It did cover three Washington State hobbit houses…but I added a fourth that’s on my hobbit house bucket list. If I find any others that fit, I’ll add them as well. Most are places to stay; one’s at a nursery and it’s a bit too small for even an actual hobbit to feel comfortable living in.

“You had me at hobbit.”  I wish that this is what I had said, but Jerry Maguire was several years away. Shortly after I met my husband, I remarked on his large, hairy feet.  A Lord of the Rings nut who claimed to have first read the book at age seven (It seems to get earlier in some of his stories…I swear pretty soon he’ll have emerged from the womb having read all of Tolkien, including the Silmarillion!) he did a little hop and said, “I’m a big hobbit!” If you’re also a big hobbit and your version of travel lust includes a pining for the Shire, these three spots in Washington State will temporarily satisfy your hobbity cravings until you can get to Middle Earth or, at least, New Zealand.

The Brothers Greenouses

Set out on an adventure to the back of this Port Orchard nursery to find a house so tiny it doesn’t even have a bed.  You can’t rent it and stay, but you can go inside and check out the little fireplace. Check out the rest of the nursery as well for their castles, fairy garden supplies, and an incredible mini shire fairy garden complete with tiny dwellings and a train set. Sadly, the mini shire is not for sale, but it inspired me to start trying to make my own.

The Forest House

The Forest House on Orcas Island

I love this place so much, I wrote about it in TWO posts.

Near Eastsound, on Orcas Island, this magical (And I don’t tend to overuse words like “magical”) dwelling was formerly called the “Hobbit House” until the owner received notification that the word was trademarked.  Now called the Forest House, it’s available for rent on FlipKey by TripAdvisor. The book itself starts with “In a hole in the ground lived a hobbit.” While this house has features that would please any halfling, its location is among the trees and might satisfy some of the citizens of Rivendell. I think The Forest House might be a better name.

Underground Hygge

Of the Washington State Hobbit Houses listed in this post, this is the winner for most-Hobbitish. Nestled in the hillsides of Orondo, WA, overlooking the Columbia River Gorge, it’s extremely private and has all the right features for living as a Hobbit…

…except that kitchen to make second breakfast or elevensies. We visited Underground Hygge — click here to read my post specifically about this Hobbit House.

For a closer look at the making of this enchanted hobbit dwelling, here’s a video:

In the snow this looks even more like a little chalet…but the interior features are Hobbity or, rather perhaps, gnomish. I added this one because it’s adorable (even more inside than outside) and is going on my to-do list. It rents on VRBO .
