Shire-Inspired Accommodations

This Treehouse by Gordon Mack Embodies the Lord of the Rings Films

— September 24, 2015 — World
This Middle Earth-themed tree house by Gordon Mack is the ideal place for Hobbit and Lords of the Rings film fans to take a relaxing vacation. The cozy accommodations perfectly mimic the homes that were made by hobbits in the adventurous film series.

The tree house is located directly behind the Chateau De Soleil as part of the country house that is actually owned by Gordon Mack. The luxurious retreat is large and can house about 16 people. It features elegant decor and authentic characteristics. The use of round doors and stained glass windows presents a truly unique home away from home.

Additionally, the vacation facility is stacked with "memorabilia, green and blue accents, a mask worn by Sauron and a massive eye created by Gordon himself." For those who still need the luxury of urbanization, the unit also features "running water, a TV, a fireplace and air-conditioning."
