Nestled among trees in the Black Hills of western South Dakota is a wooden house that looks straight out of the pages of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. Aptly called the Hobbit treehouse, this Middle Earth-esque dwelling is part of a holiday home, owned and operated by Gordon Mack. Sitting 16 feet above the ground, its exterior features rounded doors and windows, typical of a hobbit hole. Step inside, and you will be mesmerized by the almost-whimsical interior, complete with ornate Elvish signs, a mask worn by the Dark Lord, a gauntlet with the “one” ring and an artwork featuring the “Eye of Sauron”.
Additionally, the interior contains charmingly-rustic furniture (look out for the chairs with adorable monowheel base!), and a rolling ladder that leads to a loft bedroom. The structure is actually an extension of Chateau De Soleil, a sprawling country house that can accommodate up to 16 people, at any given time. Unlike the quaint treehouse, however, the main building is equipped with all forms of modern luxury, including a giant TV, air conditioning, fireplace and so on.
