If you're a fan of J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, perhaps you've dreamed of visiting a magical hobbit house, like the Bilbo Baggins' one that still exists in New Zealand. Its famous circle door and short ceilings partnered, with an enchanted garden draw people from all over the world. However, as New Zealand is pretty far from Texas, this Airbnb might be the solution.

Way out in Middle Texas is the Lonestar state's very own tiny hobbit house complete with all Hobbiton charm you'd expect.

Tall people beware, though, the ceilings are only six feet tall.

This mythical Airbnb outside of Dallas fits only two guests: perfect for a romantic getaway or for two movie nerds looking to experience the Texas-style rendition.

You'll feel like you've stepped out of the real world and into the Shire the second you see the round bed, carved wooden furniture, and the map of Middle Earth.

Greenery drapes down the walls, and a handcrafted stone fireplace welcomes all the LOTR cottage core vibes. There's even a TV atop a cozy stone fireplace for all your hobbit-watching needs.

The magic doesn't stop at the bathroom: just look at the counter that's literally made out of a tree, and the rugged stone-covered walls of the bathroom that surround you while you soak in the deep barrel tub like it's the Third Age.
