If you have always wondered what life in The Shire would be like, you won’t have to travel far to experience it.
The Halfling Hideaway, located on The Black Sheep Ranch just 30 minutes east of Osoyoos off of Highway 3, is the Airbnb of your dreams if you are at all a fan of the J.R.R. Tolkien fantasy universe depicted in Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
Quaint, cute and quiet this modern-day hobbit house lies tucked into the hillside of the ranch located in the Okanagan Highlands. The one-bedroom space is the perfect place for a two-person getaway, offering up magic throughout every nook and cranny.
From the classic “One ring to rule them all” inscription above the fireplace to portraits of key characters on the walls, the attention to detail is immaculate making this tiny earth house fit to neighbour Bilbo Baggins himself.
Listed at $275 per night, the hideaway offers a cozy, off-the-grid experience to travellers far and wide as the home does not come equipped with TV or Wifi, leaving time to relax with a book or play a board game.
In addition, adventure opportunities are in abundance with the entire 400 acres of the ranch open to hike and explore year-round.
The best part? The owner is a verified super host with 32 five-star ratings, giving some peace of mind to those who may be a bit apprehensive of the whole Airbnb thing.
