Archer & Buchanan Architecture has designed this enchanting getaway cottage in the spirit of a J.R.R. Tolkien Hobbit House, nestled on a sprawling 27-acre countryside property in Mosier, Oregon. The resulting project, the Hobbit House at Dragonfly Knoll, is positioned on the edge of a steep hillside with sweeping views over a serene pond framed by a lush woodland backdrop.

Entering this cozy cottage of just 1,200 square feet, one passes through a small entryway via a round Hobbit-scale door that opens into a cathedral-like timber framed living, dining, and cooking space. Nestled to one side, a bedroom, and bath offers a cozy respite, while on the opposing end, a human-scale door leads out to a garden retreat.

The narrative woven by the Hobbit House at Dragonfly Knoll is one of true artistry, echoing the spirit of the Arts & Crafts movement and the evocative imagery penned by Tolkien himself. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the residence stands firm upon the foundation of structural timber framing, its exterior adorned with playfully intricate stonework. Crowning its form is a clay tile roof, sheltering within its eaves a series of mahogany windows with unique patterns.

Stepping inside the cottage, most of the interior selections were lovingly made by the homeowners, who tirelessly pursued their vision. With unwavering commitment, they sought out finishes and fixtures, collaborated with artisans, and even took on the personal task of conceiving and crafting a gracefully curved tile mosaic ceiling in the bathroom.

Having been a vacation rental host for two houses, I can’t believe they are opening this work of art to guests. Many of our guests left no trace but there those who ripped doors off hinges, broke bathroom and sink faucets, chipped woodwork, and of course, broke things. Tourists also leave way more trash than we ever thought possible. I thank them for employing such amazing artisans!
