If you're a Canadian fan of JRR Tolkien's epic fantasy adventures like The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings, New Zealand might be a bit too far to visit. Luckily, Good Knights Entertainment is in the midst of completing their own project called “The Burrows” — they will be underground dwellings for rent with round doors, round windows, barrel ceilings and all the distinctive elements that you imagine from Tolkien's world!

If you’ve ever wanted to live like a Hobbit (without the big hairy feet, of course) then this is your chance. Each burrow will be its own self-contained home with in-floor heating and a fireplace so you can stay cozy.

Good Knights has a medieval-encampment experience right now that's kind of like something out of Game of Thrones and it's totally immersive. "The Burrows" will be similar to their current offerings and your stay will include costumes and activities to help pull you into the fantasy world. It's almost like Calgary is getting its own version of Hobbiton.

Here's what you can expect from "The Burrows" when they open:

  • A private luxury underground burrow tucked into the hill built for two

  • Round doors and windows

  • Richly decorated interiors

  • A bedroom, hall, bathroom, and sitting room in each burrow

  • Private outdoor garden for each burrow

  • A cozy fireplace

  • Themed costumes for your stay

  • All breakfasts, first and second and elevensies served in the dining hall

Check out these drawings of what the interiors will look like! Construction should be wrapping up this year and we can't wait to see what these Burrows will look like.

Good Knights Entertainment hopes to complete "The Burrows" construction and launch their unique experience for the 2020 season. They're not taking bookings yet. You can visit them now and stay at their luxury Medieval Encampment glamping tents while you wait for the project to finish!
