Hobbit's Nest Treehouse in the Shire at Lost Pines

Romantic cottage in Paige
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.

Lovely Get Away in the Trees
The owners are lovely and gave us a walkthrough upon arrival. It's an easy place to spend all day relaxing, resting, reading, watching the beautiful sunset, or watching the water lillies open for the sunrise. There are just the right number and type of amenities. We didn't use the fire ring or the grill (we opted for mostly ready no cook meals on this getaway), but they seemed in good repair and the wood was well stocked. We stayed three days and the hosts checked on us via text about halfway through, which was perfect for us. We would love to come back!
