Today The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens in theaters everywhere. In honor of the movie’s premiere, I present to you some of my favorite real life “hobbit houses” (also known as woodland homes). Can’t you just see Bilbo Baggins living in one of these?

    Thank you for sharing! Great pix! I could definitely live in these, they look so charming and inviting! Plus, I'm about the same size as a Hobbit!

    I could totally live in one but my husband is 6'4" and may not fit. My kids are 5'9" and taller as well.

    Most people would say, if I ever won a "prize" I'd live in a mansion… no, I would want to live in a Hobbit Woodland home. Sigh.

    I would really like to see photos of the interiors of these houses and more pictures of the other sides of the exteriors. In the midwest we used to have underground tornado shelters with earth mounds over the top—no windows of course. Maybe I could build one in my backyard to use as a root cellar and/or storage.

    I had solar tubes put in my two windowless bathrooms and I love them. Wish I had installed one in my kitchen.

    Check out Sleepy Hollow Ent. (whimsicalfairygarden.com) They've had playhouses on HGTV My Yard Goes Disney. They have a Hobbit Playhouse for $4000 + delivery and setup.

    I could see myself living in one of these hobbit houses. I'm sure that they are cozy on the inside, feels safer and eco-friendly living there as well.

    You missed one…on Bainbridge Island WA

  8. One thing's for sure – you won't have to spend a fortune on furnishings and decor with houses this small. You could probably even get one regular sized curtain or shutter, then cut it up to cover all the windows.

    May I suggest that you add several homes in Charlevoix, MI to your pics of Hobbit Homes? They have been there long before Hobbiys showed up on our horizon. I'd call them "urban hobbit homes".

  10. Katie says:

    These homes look so cozy and safe. I am referring to the ones built into the hills. I would he happy living in one, so long as it wasn't too very far from shopping, etc. Me and my dogs and cats could like it. Oh, wait, does it have electricity? If not, I might prefer it as a get-away place.
