The Chateau De Soleil (House of the Sun) is a four bedroom country house situated in a whimsical local in the Black Hills of South Dakota. This gorgeous, spacious vacation home sleeps up to 16 people, offering plenty of room for you, and your friends and family.
But for Middle Earth Fans there is one feature that that makes it stand out from other vacation homes. The Hobbit treehouse, an elevated rental property inspired by Lord of the Rings.
Other than not being built “under a hill” where any self-respecting Hobbit would live, this treehouse is designed with rounded doors and windows, and features an interior that makes guests feel like they’ve just stepped inside the pages of a Tolkien book.
The treehouse includes details like Elvish-language signs, a gauntlet with the gold ring, and a mask worn by Sauron. As a special touch there are even Hobbit-feet slippers specially tailored for all age groups.
Chateau De Soleil
Aside the charming Hobbit treehouse, the Chateau De Soleil offers 3700 sq. ft. of professionally decorated living space exquisitely furnished for both comfort and style.
The house offers expansive decks which drink in views of the National forest. They make for the perfect place to socialize as you BBQ or enjoy the hot tub that you won’t have to share with people you don’t know.
Things to Do
Along with the country house and Hobbit treehouse accommodations, the area out back of the chateau offers endless miles of trails ideal for photographers, nature lovers, and fitness enthusiasts and for those looking for a little extra excitement, be sure to bring (or rent) mountain bikes or ATV’s.
The Hobbit treehouse and chateau are located just minutes from Deadwood and surrounding communities, and makes a perfect hub to visit area attractions and still feel like you’re in Middle Earth, too.
Those who’d love to stay in the Hobbit treehouse must book the chateau, too. It really is an ideal choice for a family vacation, and whether you are an adult or child promises to be a magical stay. There’s a three-night minimum.
