Hobbits have a pretty sweet setup. Their houses have a very lived-in vibe. They're warm and inviting. Lots of drinking happens there, along with the many sequels to breakfast.
So who could be blamed for wanting to live as the Hobbitses do? The only real issue with that desire is that it's not terribly realistic. But it turns out the option has been under our noses for a while, since even before Peter Jackson made his epic adaptations. No, really. It's on Craigslist.
It's called "The Hobbit House," and it was created by artist Joseph Lawrence, who worked for Disney for nearly a quarter of a century. And, most importantly, it's available for rent. Here are the full details.
