When guests arrive at the front gate to Hobbit’s Dream, there is no doubt what lies beyond the gate is a magical place.
The view from the front entrance of Hobbit’s Dream overlooks a pond and cottage that has been remodeled to fit the landscape of Tolkien’s The Hobbit. There is even a Buckleberry Ferry where guest can enjoy a drink or meal while floating across the pond.
All of this is experienced before even opening the round door to Hobbit’s Dream. Once guests step through the front door, they are transformed into a full Hobbit experience.

The dining table is set and ready for guests to enjoy a glass of wine or some coffee in a Hobbit Mug. There is even a Hobbit-sized loaf of homemade bread which is incredibly delicious!
It is the perfect place to enjoy some or all of the traditional 7 Hobbit meals.
No detail is left to chance. Hand forged swords, hand crafted brooms, and even a miner’s helmet grace the walls.
For the more adventurous guests, the hosts offer workshops on carving walking sticks, making wooden pipes, and crafting straw brooms in a nearby building. There is an additional fee, but well-worth the time invested!
This was the perfect place for us to read The Hobbit while immersing ourselves in the life of a hobbit at Hobbit’s Dream.
