The Shire of Montana

Trout Creek, Montana, USA

The Shire of Montana is a well appointed hobbit hole of which even Bilbo Baggins would approve.


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. The Shire of Montana is a well appointed hobbit hole of which even Bilbo Baggins would approve.

This unique Guest Resort features spectacular views of Cougar Peak and Whitepine Alpaca Ranch. The Hobbit House lies in the colorful forested foothills of the Cabinet Mountains up in the Shire of Whitepine Valley approximately 8 Miles SE of Trout Creek, the huckleberry capital of Montana and 16 miles N.W. of Thompson Falls.

This lushly appointed tourist home is tastefully furnished with a crafted king size bedroom, HD-Blu-Ray Color TV, Phones for guests use since cell service in non-existant and Wi-Fi, XM Radio and a designer’s kitchen furnished with customized granite counters, and all the appliances and tools a chef needs for gourmet creations, including a deck with gas barbeque.
