Magical Adult-Sized Tree House That Looks Like a Hobbit Hole


Published -

Scott built a magical, adult-sized tree house in his backyard using mostly reclaimed materials and spare wood.

Instead of drilling into the tree, he built around it, using it as a centerpiece for the interior design. This project was a true labor of love, and every item sourced in this 400 square foot Tree House has a special story.

What kind of bedroom does the treehouse have, and what amenities does it offer for staying overnight?

Nestled among the towering trees of Vancouver Island, Canada, lies a magical treehouse, which looks like it has been plucked right out of Middle Earth. The whimsical abode, aptly named the “Enchanted Forest” treehouse, stands tall above the forest floor, decked out in earthy tones and intricate details that make it look like a hobbit hole from J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings.”

Built by treehouse architect and builder Joel Allen in 2012 as a personal project, the Enchanted Forest is a feat of creative vision and skilled workmanship. The adult-sized treehouse is supported by a combination of stilts and platforms, which allow visitors to climb up to its entrance door, perched ten feet above ground level. The main entrance is a small arched wooden door that opens up into a snug living room, complete with a circular sofa that hugs the wall, a log-burning stove, and whimsical fairy lights that cast a warm glow around the space.

The living room leads into a cozy bedroom with a comfortable queen-size bed adorned with soft linen sheets and fluffy pillows, and a skylight above that lets in the dappled sunlight filtering through the trees. The bedroom has a small closet tucked under the eaves and a partial wall that separates it from the living area, providing a degree of privacy for the occupants.

The Enchanted Forest treehouse has no electricity or running water, but that doesn’t take away from its charm. Instead, visitors are invited to disconnect from technology and experience a simpler, more authentic way of life, surrounded by nature’s beauty. The treehouse is heated by the log stove and has a composting toilet outside, in a separate structure, designed to blend in with the forest setting.

Outside, the treehouse boasts several decks that provide breathtaking views of the surrounding forest, and a small kitchenette with a propane stove and basic utensils, allowing visitors to prepare simple meals while enjoying the serenity of the wilderness. The decks are furnished with comfortable chairs and a wooden swing, where you can while away hours reading, playing board games, or simply soaking in the natural beauty around you.

The Enchanted Forest treehouse is a remarkable testament to the power of imagination and creativity, not to mention the ingenuity required to design and build such a magical structure. It has become an icon of the Vancouver Island region, attracting visitors from all corners of the world who marvel at its unique charm and whimsy. For those looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, this treehouse is the perfect escape into a fairytale world that feels almost too good to be true.
