Adults Only Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)
Steve & Chris Michaels are owners of the Shire and share their special place with Trolls, s, Elves and Fairies... and a whole lot more!
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Owner chose Trout Creek
Whitepine Valley has always been a special place visited by American Indians, Ravens and Wizards so the idea of a Shire was only natural.
What makes this Cottage unique
While visiting the Shire you are able to take some wildlife photo right out your front door due to the Michaels 2 acre pond which attracts bald eagles, herons and osprey who come in to dine on the many cutthroat trout. You are also able to sit along the River Shire and listen to the babbling brook, visit with Bilbo at his home or visit the many occupants of the Shire to share this magical experience like nothing else in the world.

We cannot say enough about our stay! Steve & Chris have done an amazing job in making us feeling like kids again! The Hobbit House is top quality with lots of wonderful treats! And as soon as you walk thru the door you are transformed into a kid. The Hobbit houses, the wee folks who live in the woods, the trolls and goblins are truly outstanding!! I love the sound affects at night! 20 acres of fantastic fun and as they say "the adventure begins here"! We are so excited about returning we are already planning our next "adventure". Thank you Steve and Chris for creating sure a beautiful and exciting place to "become a kid" again. One last note...at sundown the real adventure begins, it is absolutely stunning!! There are also a bazillion different colored fairies that are fluttering all over the twenty acres. It's so enchanting you'll never want to leave!!
Thank you for your kind words. I let my imagination go full bore when designing and building the Shire. It really pleases me to see my work appreciated.
Hobbit House is Magical!
Enjoyed two days at the Shire, and since returning from my trip I can't stop thinking about how amazing and magical it was. From the moment I stepped onto the property, I was awestruck by the detail the owners put into this creation. I think this place is without a doubt one of the most incredible places I've ever been to. There is truly no comparison.
Magical and Wonderful!
We had an absolutely wonderful time! Wish we could’ve stayed longer. Everything was perfect...clean, spotless, beautiful and the Shire was even more magical than expected! The owners were very friendly and hospitable and truly put their heart and soul into the creation of it all. Highly recommended!
Spotless and high-end. Would recommend this hobbit house highly. We stayed for two of the most wonderful days, coming home very relaxed. Complimentary gift basket, wine, beer and s’mores. I think I found heaven. The king bed was ultra comfortable. The grass was meticulously mowed, BBQ, fire pit, Go now!!
Thanks - and that was on a bad day (Chuckle)
Unique! Super attention from owners. Also left us to do our own thing. Balance-A+
Best of both worlds! Real & imaginary!! What a treat! No comfort item left out! Steve & Chris perfect hosts. Can't say enough about the attention to details! Perfect!!
You were so ready to relax and leave hurricanes and fires behind. It looks like you enjoyed your visit with feeding the fish and alpacas, trips thru the troll woods and sipping in the quiet and peace. Come again - loved having you. Bilbo
Exceeded all expectations
The attention to detail is amazing and we appreciated all of the small touches that made our stay especially welcoming. Our hosts were so kind and sharing with their time and their knowledge of the area. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

John & Kelly,
I'm so glad that there are those out there who appreciate fine detail. The trolls are slobs but the rest of the Shire is very neat. We hope to see you both again in the near future!
Visitors to the Shire of Montana will have the entire 20 acre's to themselves. Very Private.
