The Hollow - Romantic Getaway in Makanda

Welcome To Your Shire

Availability/Reserve Here

Our newest hobbit inspired House, The Hollow, is nestled in the hollow on the eastern side of the ridge.

The Hollow is, for the most part, exactly the same as The Cove, our first hobbit styled house, maintaining our original design with a few adjustments working with the shape of the land and interior additions, such as the kitchen peninsula under a arched wall. Of course, all the amenities are the same, including the hot tub on the covered private patio outside the bedroom, luxurious robes, fresh whole bean coffee.

With the fully equipped kitchen, you can enjoy a romantic dinner at the beautiful bar height table in the alcove, or savor a glass of wine at the peninsula where you can see the fireplace, TV, and catch glimpses of the woods and wildlife through the windows.

Ultimately the Hobbit styled Houses were designed to balance the unique whimsy of the Hobbit House portrayed in the "The Hobbit" and to provide luxurious surroundings and amenities for a spectacular getaway. When guests arrive they can walk through the round door into luxurious, uncluttered simplicity, and let the rest of the world disappear. Bonus - walking distance to Blue Sky Vineyard. If you remember, when offered a cup of tea, Gandalf declined and asked for a glass of red wine. A lovely Blue Sky Cabernet Franc? :)

Craftsmanship and detail are what we do.
So, if you would, step through the round door and walk with me.

"As I roam from room to room...

with the 9 foot curved ceilings, I run my hands along the rich and elegant wainscot, letting the gentle flow of the house bring serenity to my mind. The fireplace is already telling stories of proposals, laughter, new loves, and the rekindling of old loves. The natural glow from the sun tunnels gently touches the walls while the whimsical sconces whisper promises of romance and soft music. My eye is continuously drawn to the unique windows that provide glimpses of the woodland, occasionally privileging me with its inhabitants. Today, a doe appears with her two yearlings; the squirrels unbothered. Outside the bedroom door, the towering patio brick wall evokes thoughts of a luxurious private soak in the exquisite hot tub, enveloped in soft, warm bubbles on a cold winter's night; the forest's night time song providing a magical, mysterious backdrop. Anticipation."
