The space
The Hobbit House is the one of the first Earthship ever built back in 1979 and is now being refurbished for use as a nightly rental.

It has a studio size with kitchen/living/dining and greenhouse with shower and toilet.

There is a wood burning fireplace and gas back up heater to keep it very cozy as this was an early design we had not yet figured out how to heat the house with the sun alone as demonstrated in our newer models.

We provide kitchen cookware, place settings, coffee pot with coffee and tea, salt and pepper and olive oil. The beds are made and we offer towels, shampoo, soap, and lotion.

Daily maid service is not available, but additional linens are available for stays of one week or more upon request.

Guest access
Self check-in. Please let us know when you will be arriving.
Check out is by 11AM. Simply leave the key on the table or in the door and walk out.
