It’s Only 850 Sq Ft, But When You Step Inside, It’s Like Something From A Fantasy…

You can find tiny houses perched on coastal cliffs, nuzzled between tall urban buildings, and if it has wheels, even zipping down a highway.

Yet, the most charming of tiny houses are those that are buried deep in the woods.

Woodsy dwarf-like dwellings not only encompass a Thoreau-esque vibe that appeals to many tiny house fans but they also seem like they’re straight out of the pages of a fairy tale picture book. Just look at this A-line cabin, it’s design is so magical it almost looks as though it’s sprouting from the earth like Jack’s beanstalk.

This micro caste nuzzled in Asheville, North Carolina’s stunning stretch of the Blue Ridge Mountains boasts the best of both worlds and is available to visit through Carolina Mornings. It looks like a castle and a cabin.

Yet, the very best part is that it is actually inspired by a fantasy tale — and just like the story that was its muse, its design is truly magical…

The three-story castle, called Hobbit House, is only 850 square feet. It is situated in the Blue Ridge Mountains, 4,000 feet above sea level.
