This part of the central Texas pine forest, that once stretched from Austin to Louisiana, was spared in the 2011 wildfires.  We bought the original 22 acres in 2009 and built our retirement home in 2012.  Since then we have added an additional 20 acres and 2  short term guest houses.  In 2018 we hired a wonderfully creative wood worker, Mark Korzeniewski,  to build a tree house overlooking our lily pond so we could watch sunsets and listen to our bird and frog orchestras.  The result was so magical that we decided to share with others.

Perfect weekend getaway!
We loved staying in this beautiful hut! So much creativity and seclusion in a beautiful place. The pine trees made me feel a little less homesick & the deck was a perfect place for my studies. All the amenities one would need for a weekend getaway. James was very welcoming & a great host.

Fantastic Getaway
The Hobbit’s Nest was a fantastic getaway. You can see the level of love and attention to detail in every aspect of the tree house. The owner, James, and his daughter were beyond accommodating for any needs or assistance (ie. our car battery died and we left some items behind). Our Golden Retriever had the time of her life :) We’d highly recommend.

I really enjoyed our short stay on James’s land. The views from the treehouse are amazing and the paths to walk on are easy to follow without loosing that feeling of being out it the wilderness. Hope to stay again in the spring to see what the place looks like that time of year.

Magical!
2nd trip even better than the first if that’s possible! I brought a burner with me and loved cooking outside! The heater kept us toasty inside and James and his family were loving and kind to my pups, who absolutely loved treehouse living. Thank you!

Beautiful and relaxing
Jim made sure you had everything you needed. The area is beautiful to explore, and you always have a comfy bed and clean bathroom to go back to. We brought tons of books to read while watching the lily pond, our dogs laid on their beds and we just enjoyed the peace. Jim even gave us a tour of his other treehouse he’s building nearby. It was a great experience and I’ve already recommended to my friends as the perfect get away close to Austin.

The directions to get there were quite helpful. This place is a bit harder to find in the dark once on the property. The attention to detail was super cute inside. We loved the space heaters, all of the signs, and Tolkien memorabilia. The bed was comfy and cozy. The space was charming and well thought out. We thought the space was perfect for two people plus a pup. We appreciated the tools for cooking that were there along with the small fridge. People should know to bring their own cooking knives, olive oil and seasonings if cooking. The grill was quite helpful.

The hobbits nest is a great unique property. It’s private and has a great pond view from the balcony in the trees.

My husband is a huge LOTR fan. We chose to stay in this magnificent treehouse to celebrate his 50th birthday. We were amazed by the craftmanship and details all around. Jim drove us around the property on his ATV and gave a quick, fun tour. Our stay was magical and memorable. We give the highest marks possible. We will definitely be back.

Magical tree house
We love staying at tree houses and so far the Hobbit's nest is our favorite. We love the little details and design of the tree house, we enjoyed the view of the pond in the morning and at relaxed evenings. We love cooking and relaxing by the fire. The host James is very nice and accommodating. We were able to unwind on our 10th year anniversary and plan to come back soon with our kids.

We had such a relaxing time at the Hobbit’s Nest. It’s really a beautiful and thoughtful work of art. It’s also nestled in the perfect spot in the woods. Sitting outside by the fire in the morning was wonderful. Beautiful sights and sounds!

Cozy cabin with kids
My two young kids, husband, and I really enjoyed our stay in this gorgeous, comfortable, cozy cabin that was just enough off the beaten track and so dang cute. My kids slept comfortably all night on the provided cots & linens. It was easy to cook a simple dinner with the provided firewood and dishes. My kids loved trying an outdoor shower for the first time and falling asleep to a frog chorus from the nearby pond <3 I recommend for sure!

The Hobbit’s Nest is the perfect place to rest and relax. We were constantly noticing the many details that made the treehouse special. It was fun having a bird’s eye view and listening to the outdoor sounds. I would highly recommend staying here.

I cannot recommend the Hobbit’s Nest enough! One of the most beautiful and magical experiences. The hosts are down to earth people, who immediately welcomed us in person and gave us a tour around the property upon arrival. They didn’t miss a single detail, it had all of the comfort creatures of camping. Definitely will be coming back soon!

Hobbit’s Nest is Awesome!!
The whole experience was so amazing. We got off the grid and had a beautiful time in the room. We just had a night but it was what we needed. They were so hospitable and the room was very clean and way more than we expected. We WILL be back.

Absolutely gorgeous tree house with beautiful little details and personal touches. I could just see all the work that went into crafting this space and I kept finding hidden extras that blew my mind. From the stained glass to the woodworking to the decorations, the space was beautiful. I wish I could have stayed longer!!

Simply enchanted! Gorgeous craftsmanship, thoughtfully and intuitively appointed with everything we needed to glamp in style and comfort. The outdoor shower is definitely a highlight! We will be talking about this adventure for a long time to come and can’t wait to return to try out the new treehouse when it’s ready! Thank you for everything!

A dream come true for LOTR fans!
Absolutely beautiful. My husband and I are huge fans of LOTR, so we simply had to visit this amazing creation. It exceeded my expectations, the hosts were incredibly friendly, as was their sweet pup who visited and got along just swell with our two doodles. We were very thankful for a pet friendly stay, as well as a comfortably cool air conditioned room despite 100+ temperatures. We plan to visit again hopefully in the fall when the weather is cooler. ❤️ Thank you soooo much!

The Hobbit's Nest is a unique and whimsical getaway. The treehouse is beautiful and the attention to detail is incredible. My family and I enjoyed our time there. The Nest is extremely well stocked and equipped and the interior is air conditioned. We didn't need most of the supplies we brought with us.

The stay at Hobbits nest was absolutely beautiful. Our little boys loved exploring the tree house to find all the special hobbit Easter eggs. The AC made it extremely comfortable in over 100 degree weather and with all the trees it was extremely shady. It was so special, we'd love to visit again!

Beautiful house! Private lot and my dogs can run around without leashes. Clean rooms. It is very hot summer, but I think the tree house is a few degrees cooler.
