According to ABC 7 News, a "Lord of the Rings" inspired home will be available for rent starting next month on Airbnb. The "Hobbit House" as it will be listed, will run renters $500 a night. The Pawling, NY home has a plant covered roof, round door, two bedrooms and two baths.

The Airbnb listing description reads:

One of a kind, unique cozy hobbit house. A beautiful, private bucolic setting offering you the ultimate getaway. Located 5 minutes from the quaint village of Pawling with direct Metro North railway access. 2 bedrooms each with king size bed. 2 bathrooms each with walk in showers. A queen size pull out couch in living room. Electric fireplace in living room, as well. Perennial gardens, 3 patios, babbling brook, bbq grill, hot tub, hammock, and outdoor propane fire pit.

No offense to the folks who built this fantasy dream palace, they did an amazing job, but why do we even bother buying houses of our own? What is it about humans that we will do anything to get of our houses, including renting other people's homes?

I gotta keep my wife off the scent of this one because she will drag me out of my home in Danbury, CT to travel twenty whole minutes to Pawling, NY to rent someone else's house. On second thought, maybe I will tell her, this place looks like it is so much fun. If we dress the part, it could be a lot of fun, but now I need to figure out where people buy capes.
