Take a step right into a fairy tale on this enchanting short-term rental.
Nestled within the foothills of the agricultural foothills of Mount Ben Rinnes in northern Scotland, this small Airbnb offers guests the chance to take guests from the online to a fairy tale.
Bilbo Baggins’ hobbit-worthy hideout provides guests with a captivating retreat in a wooded circular “living home” in an apartment set in a lush estate. Two bedrooms and one bathroom have views of the mountains from every window, with additional sunlight streaming in through a skylight within the lounge. An additional set of bunk beds and fold-out futons increases the “Earth House” to 5 beds and may accommodate as much as six people at a time. Pets are welcome.
The 3 acres feature a gurgling brook, mini waterfalls, ‘Fairy Glen’, private garden, outdoor games, picnic tables, pizza oven, BBQ and access to a wider garden – which incorporates a fireplace pit, swings and a “sensory play cave” by Airbnb list.
“It is really unique, magical and architecturally designed to offer a fun and nurturing escape from the pressures of on a regular basis life. Compared to a big embrace,” boasted the biography of the bizarre seat.
Aside from the twee aspect, the address also provides an actual escape from the overly connected world for anyone craving a while away from technology.
“For indoor entertainment, we provided free unlimited Wi-Fi, a Bluetooth speaker, and a big number of books, games, puzzles, and soft and wood toys, including a train set and an enormous Jenga. If you would like a tech-free break, just turn off your Wi-Fi or ask us to remove it,” the host explained within the letter.
Those who go offline during their stay can as an alternative enjoy star scrolling with a homemade Dobsonian telescope. Wildlife might be seen rather a lot while touring the property, as are the three resident geese and a community of free-range chickens.
The price for 3 nights (minimum per visit) at Earthen home varies depending on the season and starts at $181 per night.
