Did you know you can stay at Hawk Hollow overnight!? You can! In one of our Hobbit Houses!
Where did the Hobbit Houses come from?
We bought them from Melissa and Rocy who live in Maine. They came down to Hawk Hollow and built them. Check out their website!
"We had a wonderful time at these hobbit homes! We got very prompt responses and it was very private and peaceful! The giant tree swing, creek and fire pit were great surprises! They supplied us with the extras we needed to have the best time we will never forget!! We will definitely visit this magical hobbit land again someday soon!"
“So. Much. Fun!! We will do this again when it's warmer so the kids can play in the creek all day! Thanks for a great time!”
“We stayed the Hobbit Houses with our two kids (9 and 13). The location and experience are great for anyone who wants the outdoors-y feeling of camping, but the comfort of being in an urban area. The location is a lovely small nature preserve nestled in a quiet neighborhood. The place was just large enough for our boys to feel "adventurous", yet small enough for us to feel comfortable letting them explore on their own. The houses are very cute and unique. The larger house fits a full-queen size mattress or mat with room to spare; the small house fits a twin size mattress, but was big enough for our boys to share.
"Note: if you have a full size blow up mattress, you will need to inflate it inside the house, as it will not fit through the door fully inflated, so you will need a battery-powered pump...or a great set of lungs! Tamara was a great host, who communicated with us in a timely way and provided all of the necessary information for us to prepare for our stay. She also provided a bucket of small items to make our stay more comfortable (lamp, bug spray, lighter for the fire pit...), which we really appreciated. I highly recommend staying at the hobbit houses as a fun and different family experience!”
Hawk Hollow is a great place to become an explorer. It is home to many birds, a family of turtles, frogs, and owls. Hawk Hollow is one of Atlanta's unique urban/wild interfaces, and we at the Wylde Center are excited to be stewards of this property.
Hawk Hollow is a natural setting with a woodland Tolkien feel. It is a place to explore habitats and ecosystems. There are woodland paths, a butterfly garden, a creek, and two Hobbit Houses that you can even stay overnight in! Hawk Hollow’s purpose is to restore as much native habitat as possible while removing invasive species.
New native species are introduced on an annual basis. Some are easily placed in open spaces, but some must be strategically planned to compensate for the removal of invasives while leaving as much habitat intact as possible. In some cases, long term non-natives are left to keep the native wildlife in place.
With its streamside location and its vital micro-ecosystem, there are opportunities galore to explore how we can help native plants and animals thrive in these little habitat pockets. Our focus at this greenspace is invasive plant management and reintroduction of native plants and pollinators. Where does the name Hawk Hollow come from? On the property grows a tree with a hollow base that is fun to explore. Don't worry, the tree is still healthy! And above, hawks make the treetops and the surrounding area their home. Read more.
