Hobbiton is the movie set of The Hobbit. People travel to New Zealand from around the world in part just to walk past the little Hobbit holes of the Shire, which are only facades... ‘The Hill’ however, is not! This earth-sheltered, fantasy architecture home is one that you can easily drive to and for a wee adventure. Charming Tolkienesque styling, filled with antiques and special touches that will transport you to a time away. This design/build project combines old-world charm mixed with all modern conveniences. The cottage has a great view of the valley from the walk-on roof and is only a 5-minute stroll down meadow paths to Sissy's Take-Away Kitchen voted a top gourmet cafe in Vermont open Thursday - Sundays B/L/D. Order online and enjoy a picnic in her gardens. Our Pub and Kitchen freezers have Sissy's dinners to purchase in case she's closed when you come. There is a queen bed in the master bed nook which adjoins a full bath with a claw foot tub on the 'Baggs Inn', which is the living side of the space with full kitchen. In the ‘Double Dragon Pub,’ there is a Murphy bed and the Pub has a full bath with a shower. The garden includes a claw foot tub for a hot soak and stargazing as well as an outdoor hot/cold shower. A fire-pit for sing-alongs is outside the pub. There is a landline as phone service is spotty...best service is AT&T...but WiFi calling will work. Fiber optic wifi, smart TV...but consider treating yourself to a tech-free weekend. There are darts and board games in the pub, frisbee golf, archery, quoits, corn-hole, bocce. Swim in a spring-fed pond, May, June & July...floatation devices provided.
Well-behaved, non-shedding dog under 25 lbs. welcome with a fee/refundable deposit. NOTE: Guests who are large in size will not be comfortable...the toilet stall is very narrow, antique chairs smaller and more fragile, tight spaces include: bedroom nook...pass-through bar...kitchen cooking/seating area & dining area. So sorry! We do have another unique stay/ listing at 'Post & Beam Beauty on Higher Ground' that can accommodate 2 couples as well as extra guests including infants not walking (full nursery includes baby bath, changing table & crib).

Location

Middletown Springs, Vermont, United States

Middletown Springs is a quaint village of 800 about 30 minutes to Manchester on one of the loveliest routes through Vermont. Middlebury is 45 minutes away... the half-way point to Burlington. The town has all basic amenities; fire dept, small general store, post office, library, churches, historical society and Sissy's Kitchen...Voted Best in Yankee Magazine: Best NE Picnic Cafe (cash & check only), all just steps from the property...a lovely 5-minute walk away through our meadows. Step back in time... cell service is spotty in tows. Coverage in the town of Poultney (8 miles west)... so enjoy life the way it was before the madness set in. Little Flower Farm, just 4 miles west has fresh organic veggies! There is high-speed fiber optic internet. Golfing and boating nearby on Lake St. Catherine!

I am a jack of all trades/engineer/building science and my wife Cynthia is a designer, who as an idea person keeps the projects big and small coming... luckily we enjoy our time working together to make some of our dreams come true. Cynthia is no longer a traveler after being in one too many flying 'mishaps' and so now we look forward to meeting travelers from near and far by hosting with Airbnb. We are looking forward to hosting your Hobbitish Holiday...what we hope will be an adventure of special magnificence!
