It's been quite a few years since we've witnessed The Hobbit or Lord of the Rings on the big screen, but the long-lasting legacy that the franchise created is still in effect today. Taking a trip to New Zealand to visit the film sets might be a little far fetched, but there's a hidden gem just as great that's a little closer to home. This unique Hobbit-themed Airbnb near North Carolina is every superfan's dream come true.
A Hobbit's Dream in Fairfield, VA really whisks you away from the East Coast to Middle Earth. You might be able to book other themed Airbnbs, but the attention to detail here is really impressive.
The one-bedroom, one-bathroom property can comfortably sleep two people, but you can squeeze a total of four people in the cottage for an added cost. There's also a full kitchen and backyard for added convenience.
Once you step inside, you can swap your everyday outfit for some of the cosplays, provided at no additional cost. Once you're suited up, crack open the complimentary bottle of wine and really get your night started.
What sets this property apart from other Airbnbs is how immersive it gets. Outside of having a completely enchanting place to stay, you can really get into the character by booking one of the experiences provided by the host.
Some of the guest favorites include the "Buckleberry Ferry," where you can envision that you're floating down the Brandywine River to Bree. You'll actually be on a boat ride on the lake behind the property, but one can imagine.
To bring it full circle, you can kick back with an Old Toby tobacco pipe, or simply down a boozy drink.
If you're eager to channel your inner artisan, you can book one of the vintage broom, pipe making or wood carving workshops. Ranging from $45 to $75 a person, it's completely worth it to bring a completely one-of-a-kind piece home.
It might be hard to find a reason to leave the property, but the house is right outside of Lexington, Virginia. You can stop by the breweries and experience the quaint town that's famed for its music, brews, and hospitality.
If you're looking to get away from civilization the entire trip, there are plenty of trails with ample hiking opportunities.
