You can stay in Hobbit homes near Shawnee National Forest in southern Illinois Can't Post


"The Cove was inspired by our own whimsical design and the desire that you will feel immersed in the home of a hobbit. With luxurious simplicity to soothe the mind, what could be better than a hobbit styled, cozy earthen shelter in the Shawnee National Forest?

Guests of The Cove have a secret trail through a short stretch of woods to Blue Sky Vineyard."

This looks glorious! [In reply to] Can't Post

If I can't get back to NZ, maybe this would be a close second ;) 8-hr drive as opposed to 20+ hrs of travel... one way!

Thank you for this!! :D


We have been there and back again.

And I live about 15 miles from Makanda. No idea how I missed this.

While you live, shine
Have no grief at all
Life exists only for a short while
And time demands an end.

Great stuff. Sadly, I am not sure I will ever have reason to go that far west.

I am in fact a Hobbit (in all but size). I like gardens, trees and unmechanized farmlands; I smoke a pipe, and like good plain food (unrefrigerated), but detest French cooking; I like, and even dare to wear in these dull days, ornamental waistcoats. I am fond of mushrooms (out of a field); have a very simple sense of humour (which even my appreciative critics find tiresome); I go to bed late and get up late.
