The Hobbit Hole is a cozy, comfortable sculpture to live in during a memorable visit to Portland. It's a quiet and beautiful oasis that's steps from one of the best shopping, eating, and people watching streets in the whole city.
We are around the corner from an organic grocery store, iconic restaurants, shopping, bike share programs and entertainment on perfectly Portland Hawthorne and Division streets. This is a walking, biking, and transit paradise with easy curbside parking.
"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole ... it was a hobbit-hole and that meant comfort."
This handcrafted, sustainable Hobbit Hole is a unique and inspiring place to call home in Portland! Inspired by the Lord of the Rings, our earthen home provides insulation, sound barrier and loads of charm. We painstakingly reclaimed the clay produced from the excavation for our precious Hobbit Hole and turned that into the tree roots that form the ceiling.
Reclaimed and sustainable materials are throughout the space including a beautiful arched former church door located near the kitchenette. Local artisan friends poured their hearts into the cabinetry and woodwork. We want this to be the most memorable Airbnb experience you've ever had!
Adventurous travelers will have access to the entire 470sqft Hobbit Hole.
