“Enchanting Experience ”
Reviewed 27 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This is an enchanting getaway to unplug from the world and recharge your batteries. My friend and I had a whole mountainside retreat to ourselves to explore. While limited beverages and fun snacks are provided, meals are not, so bring your own fixings. You can eat like a hobbit, using the beautiful full service kitchen to prepare food or whip up something on the grill overlooking the trout pond below or head into town for a bite to eat.

The guest home is comfortable no matter what the outside temp is since it is nestled into the hillside. The beds are comfortable with fluffy pillows. No expense has been spared when it comes to the details. Even the electrical outlets are painted to blend in with the lovely walls and custom juniper wood furniture. There is satellite tv, music, movies, books and free internet if you cannot bear to be disconnected from the outside world. You can see some of the hobbit movie props as well like Bilbo's contract or snack on popcorn while you watch the saga. There are all the comforts of home and nice lighting.

Outside is an enchanting wonderland day or night. Enjoy a cold one next to the babbling brook. Cross the bridge and hear the intriguing sounds of wee ones laughing. Explore the hobbit village and a charming miniature world with detailed paintings and fairy houses around every corner. Peek in the 600 year old juniper stump troll house. At night the entire hillside lights up making you feel like you are part of this magical place. You can enjoy a s'more around the fire pit or BBQ in our case due to the high fire danger right now.

The owners are friendly making you feel right at home when you arrive. They respect your privacy leaving you to enjoy your personal experience one of a kind experience but are only a cb or phone call away if you need something.

I would definitely stay here again if I have the chance to get away. There are many outdoor activities in the area but with even two days I barely had time to take in all the beauty right outside my door. Enjoyed a lovely hike outdoors among the white pines where I found the largest pine cone I have ever seen in Montana.

I thank you for your kind words but a lot of a person's experience is what they bring with them. You two were so giddy and loved to play - even cooking some dragon meat over the fire pit. (Fake Dragon). I'm glad you enjoyed the Shire. Bilbo says hi!
