Hobbit's Nest Treehouse in the Shire at Lost Pines

Cottage in Paige with balcony
Come and visit our enchanting Hobbit's Nest treehouse! Enjoy a romantic getaway or a fun family vacation resting in the tree tops of Lost Pines Forest. The Hobbit's Nest is a unique glamping experience offering the serenity of nature with some of the comforts of home. We are dog friendly and the owners' two friendly large dogs roam the property freely and are likely to stop by for a play visit!

The tree house has a comfortable queen size bed with a gorgeous treetop view. Two cots and/or two air mattresses are also available upon request with room to set up tent camping for the family. Clean linens, towels, K-cup coffee maker and coffee are all supplied for you.

We have recently added electricity, an air conditioner/heater mini split, as well as a small refrigerator with ice trays. There are lights throughout and below to enjoy the recreational spaces late into the evening. The bathroom features a sink with cold running water as well as an incinerating toilet. An outdoor shower provides both hot and cold water and a relaxing bathing experience.

A propane grill, propane, pots, pans, cooking implements, and dishware for four is supplied for cooking with a portable camping sink below for washing up. Guests may want to bring an additional cooler with ice for drinks.

Guests will share 42 heavily wooded acres in the Lost Pines Forest with the owners and two short term rental guest houses. There are shaded trails for walking and observing wildlife. The tree house overlooks a small pond filled with lily pads and frogs. The west facing balconies are a great place to watch sunsets and listen to the frog orchestra.

The property is about 8 miles from Bastrop State Park's trails and swimming pool, 10 miles to the Colorado River and kayak rental and Bastrop's restaurants. We are near many antique stores and the Round Top antique fair. The Sherwood Forest Faire site is only 6 miles away.

Be aware: Please be on the lookout for scorpions and snakes during your visit. Though they are less active during the cooler months, there are still snakes and scorpions on the property so please be aware, keep a close eye on children and pets, and most importantly -- watch your step.

For larger gatherings be sure to check out our two other short-term rental houses in the Shire at Lost Pines.

Relaxing/Unique weekend getaway
This was an awesome experience. My husband and I went here for our first anniversary and it was very peaceful. The craftsmanship of the treehouse was amazing and the host gave us a tour of the property when we arrived which was pretty cool learning the history of everything.

Most Unique Visit
The treehouse is indescribable because the exterior is larger than pictured and is a true treehouse, not a house just set among trees. The interior has elements associated with Hobbits that make it endlessly interesting. The owner met us and even showed us around the remainder of the property. While we did not cook, there was an outdoor grill and a fire pit with cookware necessities. This is well worth the visit!

Perfect holiday in the woods
I stayed with my fiancé and the treehouse was more than spacious enough for a relaxing stay. The nearby town of Bastrop has more history and local culture than I ever realized and we loved visiting Maxine's Cafe, the Roadhouse Paige, walking the historic downtown, and the Riverwalk. The treehouse, despite not being sealed up like a house, was always cool and felt very clean. The decoration is fun and whimsical, just what I would want in a LOTR treehouse.
