Wouldn’t it be nice if we could spend a weekend getaway in the Shire like Frodo and the other Hobbits? Thanks to Montana couple Steve and Christina Michaels our dream of visiting Hobbiton may soon become a reality.
The Michaels have built a life-size Hobbit house and a miniature Shire to match, but it won’t be the rustic stay most of us are expecting. The house is filled with modern amenities including HDTVs, satellite radio, WiFi and Blu-ray players.
The Hobbit house and mini Shire cost the couple around $410,000 and a one-night stay will set LOTR fans back about $245. It may seem a little steep (and it is), but I guess that’s the price we have to pay for a geeky retreat this awesome.
If you do plan on making a trip to the Hobbit House of Montana don’t bring your pets. Apparently bears and other wild things are known to frequent the area and your pooch probably won’t get along with them.
