Now wouldn’t this be a great place to start an adventure?

A couple in Three Hills, Alberta is planning on converting a few of their own hills into hobbit holes as part of their medieval-themed destination venue.

Linda and Daniel Smith own Good Knights Entertainment Ltd., a glamping site offering guests the option of staying in a medieval pavilion, complete with tents, feasts, and archery.

The plan is to build two to three luxury burrows that will be outfitted just like Bag End is in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. 

Each burrow will feature the signature round doors and windows, a sod roof, and a private garden. They are calling them the Bagg Inn Burrows.

The burrows will be able to fit two adults in the bedroom, along with a pullout bed in the sitting room for up to two children.

The Smiths are hoping to have the new additions completed in 2018, and have created a crowd-funding page to raise some of the funding needed. Launched earlier this month, the page has already reached its goal of $10,000, and there are still 24 days left to go.

Along with the accommodations, the “stay and play” experience will offer guests a hobbit-sized breakfast (and no, that definitely doesn’t mean small), access to the archery range, and participation in the various events throughout the “encampment.”

You’ll even be provided your very own authentic “halfling” costume to wear during your stay.

*Disclaimer: There is no guarantee that you won’t be swept off on an adventure to deceive dragons, navigate mountains, traverse forests, or destroy evil forever.
