Trout Creek, MT- In a remote valley in Northwest Montana stay in a cabin patterned after the houses described in the Hobbit. More than a bed to sleep in and a stove to cook on, the Shire offers visitors a luxury lodging experience full of imagination, magic and yes, a truly unique retreat away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Surrounding the home is a village that comes to life at night with the magical display of lights from the cavalcade of mushrooms that line Hobbit Lane to the lighted mural of a whole Elven Village. The excitement is heightened when these fairy structures begin to light up one after the other at dusk. If you are really lucky...and quiet, you may see the shadows of Fairy creatures or catch a glimpse of them at home as they like to gather in a special pine tree near the creek and chat the night away...
The owners have made it a point to share a special treat with each guest upon their arrival- a very large and distinctive Trollhouse cookie made with special fairy dust! They also made sure that the kitchen is well equipped including a barbeque grill located on the deck outside. The entire Shire overlooks their scenic Whitepine Alpaca Ranch which boasts an old fashioned, red barn built in 1918 and a pond that brings in a myriad of waterfowl including Baldwin the resident Bald Eagle, blue herons and many diving osprey who dine on the Cutthroat trout living in the pond. Guests might also see deer, elk, and moose swimming in the pond, coyotes, and mountain lions along with the occasional bear or wolf.
The 1,000 square foot guest cottage comes complete with one king bedroom and a very small, guest bedroom. It has XM Radio, HD-Satellite flat screen TV with a Blu-Ray CD player with a library of books and CDs. There’s even a wood burning stove for those rare chilly nights; however the cottage stays a constant 55 degrees because it’s entirely underground. Phone service is available as there is NO cell service in and among Whitepine Shire.
The Shire of Montana is available for rental for $345 per night with a two night minimum and must be guaranteed with a major credit card. Because of the intimate details and hand crafted displays, no pets nor children are allowed. Advance reservations are required.
Enjoy the unique features of this magical dwelling, with an added twist of imagery and sophistication. The enchantment is almost spiritual and unlike anything you have ever seen before because it is such an uplifting experience... makes you feel like a kid again!
