Only in Your State found cabins you can rent in Shawnee National Forest in southern Illinois that are built to resemble a hobbit’s house. They are rented through the Rocky Comfort Cabins that are within the park.
They rent for roughly $170 a night with a two night minimum. They have all the creature comforts of home and more including a private patio with a hot tub for 4, a fully equipped kitchen and more.
Plus, the cabins (there are 3 of them) are a short distance from the Blue Sky Vineyards and right along the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail.
Think of it this way, you could have a nice getaway tasting all sorts of fantastic wines while exploring nature as there are many trails to enjoy within Shawnee National Forest.
It’s about a 5 and 1/2 hour drive from Rockford but honestly for any hobbit lover it would be well worth it to stay in this cozy cabin and have a really unique experience.
I mean it’s not everyday you get to stay let alone see a hobbit home.
