An incredibly popular Airbnb among Lord of the Rings fans is one of Canada’s most wish-listed unique stays.

Airbnb recently announced a list of 26 unique wishlisted destinations, ranging from a lighthouse in Nova Scotia to a treehouse in Chilliwack, in time for the peak tourism season.

Second Breakfast Hideaway, an Airbnb-themed after J.R.R. Tolkien's hobbit homes on the side of hills, is a roughly 25-minute drive east of Osoyoos.

Travelers are taking advantage of unique Canadian properties like tiny homes, treehouses, earth homes, barns and boathouses like never before, according to Airbnb. Airbnb data shows that nights booked at unique listings in Canada increased by almost 70 percent last year compared to 2019.

Second Breakfast Hideaway, with room for two, is a roughly 25-minute drive east of Osoyoos.

Owner Christina Le Comte had no idea her Airbnb hobbit hole made the list but said it was “amazing.”

“You’re a little bit away from the world, so you forget a bit about the outside world,” she said.

The Airbnb attracts all sorts of visitors, mostly Lord of the Rings fans who even don costumes after they arrive, she said.

“The guests are a lot of fun,” Le Comte. A secret wedding was even done last year at the hobbit house and engagements are quite popular at its location.

Le Comte has read The Hobbit and she’s become versed in Lord of the Rings lore since she and her husband took over the property in 2020.

For the 2022 season, Second Breakfast Hideaway is mostly booked but some spots are still available due to cancellations, she said.

The hobbit hole will likely be closed from mid-November to early February next year for the season but until then, take a trip to Middle Earth by visiting the Second Breakfast Hideaway Airbnb's website.
