This Hidden 'Hobbit' Airbnb In California Comes With Lush Outdoor Soaking Tubs

Welcome to your personal Shire near the Redwood Forest.

If you've ever wished you could transport yourself to J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth, now's your chance. Nestled deep in the land of the Redwoods, you'll find an unexpected gem. This hidden Hobbit house in California will transport you straight to the Shire.

Narcity may receive a portion of sales if you purchase something from this article, which was created independently by Narcity's editorial team just for you.

Here, in your little hideaway, you can explore forests of ancient redwood trees, wild running rivers and secluded beaches. 

You'll be staying between two of the largest old-growth forests in the world, with Redwood National Park just a half an hour north and Humboldt Redwoods State Park 40 minutes to the south.

The rental cost is $264 per night for up to three guests. If you split the cost with friends, that's only $88 each before taxes and fees.

Since the residence is pet-friendly, you can bring your dog for an additional $15 per night fee that covers cleaning and maintenance.

The welcoming brightly-colored exterior has a cheeriness that extends inside. Colorful tapestries adorn the walls and quirky decor sets the mood. 

Each of the two beds is fitted with hypoallergenic linens and has an award-winning mattress to make sure you get the perfect night's sleep.

If you need an incentive to pull yourself away from the plush paradise in the a.m., there's a kitchen waiting with breakfast essentials inside. 

There are two farm-fresh eggs in the fridge, steel-cut oats on the counter, coffee, tea and popcorn. 

You're even welcome to harvest some of the freshly-grown kale from the outside courtyard.

All the comforts of the cozy abode make for serious relaxation but it's the outdoor space that will truly transport you to the Shire. 

Two rustic tubs welcome visitors to soothe and soak outside among nature.

This one-of-a-kind experience is included in your stay and the hosts welcome you to take full advantage of it.

Since your cottage is one of several on the private property, the tubs are available on a first-come, first-served basis. With a number of private spaces, you're sure to stumble on something magical.

The custom cedar sauna has a circular river stone facade and a cute little door that looks like Frodo Baggins could walk out of it at any moment. 

We definitely recommend stargazing in the tub and then winding down with a warm sauna session.
