This special piece of land is over 3 acres and was one of the famous strawberry farms on beautiful Bainbridge island. West facing and full sun, this property is home to wildlife including bats, owls, coyotes, eagles, osprey, red winged blackbirds and deer.  Bordering a local 2 lane highway, the property has stunning territorial views of Meigs park.   Very private area where you have the run of the bottom portion of our property.  The Hobbit house was built by our family as a 5th grade project for our daughter Rose and her friends.  Now we have converted the cozy living space to glamping, to pay for her college in Worcester Massachusets! “In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.”-J.R.R. Tolkien You don’t have to go to New Zealand to stay in a hobbit house! Hand-built by our family, this cozy in-hill cabin located in the lower area of our property is something right out of a Tolkien novel. Very LGBTQ+ And BIPOC friendly. This one room Hobbit Hole has everything in it's  7.5x15.5' (cozy): Comfy convertible bed/couch complete with linens, a small table with 2 chairs for playing games and eating, puzzles, games, snacks, hot water kettle, coffee maker, bluetooth speaker, electric fireplace, books, sketchpad with colored pencils, and more!  A rustic wooden floor (with some paint splatters) and a braided rug give you a feeling of comfort and home.  On site we have a private portable bathroom complete with hand-washing station, and an outside combination fire pit and charcoal barbecue with a grill top and  s’mores sticks provided so you can cook over a wood fire or coals!  And an outdoor table and chairs that are super comfortable! The house itself is heated, insulated, and has working electricity/outlets for computer or phone charger.  Clean bedding and pillows provided, washed in fragrance-free detergent between each guest.  We provide a full water jug with spigot, hot water kettle, teapot, assorted teas, an empty growler to use, 2 pint glasses and 2 mugs.   Private area of the yard with plenty of room to relax.  We have a disc golf goal and discs to use as well. Firewood is available for purchase onsite for $10/milk crate full. This comes with a kindling kit. Territorial views of the tree line and sunset views to die for! We are located near Meigs Park as well as a 10-minute walk from Manitou beach and an easy bike ride to the ferry that goes to Seattle!  2 miles from the Grand Forest and 3 miles from Battle Point park.  We are exactly 3 miles from the ferry terminal in a convenient mid-island location. NEED TO KNOW (managing expectations):A note on the bathroom: the hobbit hole is small and will not fit a bathroom or plumbing. Your nearby private portable restroom is cleaned thoroughly between each guest and serviced (pumped out) weekly.  We consider our listing to be “glamping”. Also our property borders a local 2 lane highway and you can expect road noise mostly during the day and evening.  While it is a private setting you can expect to hear the road.   Weekends and evenings it is quieter, and when the door is closed it is quiet.   The Hobbit House is suitable for 2 guests or 2 adults and a small child that can share the bed.  The bed is a queen size, and we can't allow sleeping on the floor as the door opens inwards and is a safety concern.   However, additional guests are welcome to bring a tent and camp outside, for $20/tent, up to 6 additional guests or 2 tents, whichever is smaller.  Let me know when you are booking that you'd like to bring additional guests and we will adjust the costs accordingly.  WANT TO SEE MORE? We are on Instagram @ hobbithouse98110 and there are videos of the space to give you a solid look at what is in the space. On you tube we have a nice video giving a tour of the property and the hobbit hole.   Look for "Hobbit House Bainbridge Island". We look forward to hosting you!“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.

Cozy Hobbit House on Bainbridge
Great stay!
Host was great and very communicative. The porta-potty was very clean and pleasant to use. I like that fact that the is campsite felt very private yet was close to everything you need! My favorite part of the stay was at night when we were cooking over the bon-fire and night lights were on illuminating the hobbit house! This is a place that I would come back to.

A hobbit-hole mean comfort
We arrived a few days before our Alaskan cruise and found this as a place to stay. I honestly think mom will be talking about here to her friends more than the cruise we will go on. This is a rustic, charming, delightful Hobbit Hole spacious enough for two adults and a suitcase. Mary makes you feel right at home with perks such as home baked cookies, board games, extra blankets, tea, coffee, and small snacks. Inside you’ll have a comfortable futon , a table and chairs for two, and a plethora of objects to explore. The outdoor area with the fire ring and seating makes a pleasant restful space for star viewing or outdoor s’mores. There is even a frisbee golf basket. If you decide to go out on an adventure, on the island there is nearby shopping , wineries, and beautiful scenery to visit. This will be a return site for us even without a planned cruise. It is a destination in and by itself. I’m sure Tolkien would envision a snug little Hobbit Hole just like this.

Cozy Hobbit House on Bainbridge
The perfect cozy night away
I LOVED staying here! My boyfriend and I are both college students and I wanted to give him a Christmas gift that was a fun cabin-like stay where we could relax and get away. Needless to say I would stay here again. Very clean and cozy. It’s easy to warm up in the cold with the electric fire place and stays nice and warm once heated. I loved sitting at the fire and looking at the hobbit house! We used the board games they had and they were perfect! The lord of the rings themed trivial pursuit was fun and on theme. - porta potty was east to get to and VERY clean. The motion censor light in it made all the difference too. If every porta potty was like this I would have no problem using them!! They also had some personal hygiene stuff in there like tampons to use. - there IS A WINE OPENER - the bed is comfy

It was easy to find even in the heavy fog. The path down to the Hobbit house was clearly marked

So lovely. And yummy!
Come for the Hobbit Hole, stay for the cookies! My whole stay was lovely. I visited during the rainy season, so I had a mix of dry-ish days to wander the neighborhood all the way “down” to the ferry and the lovely brace of shops and eateries. It was also a short jaunt to Poulsbo with its own set of places to wander in. Oh, and the cookies. I suspect Sauron itself laced them with something Evil. But apparently I can be corrupted by such tasty evil!
