Who hasn't wanted to live in a house high up in a tree? How about living in a shack that looks like elves should be there baking cookies around the clock? These 17 residences are straight out of Lord of the Rings, storybook legends, and science fiction, or perhaps they were just creations of folks with a really twisted sense of humor. Either way, they are really cool, each with an aura of magic that those on this side of the realm would be lucky to ever experience.

Are you brave enough to stay in any of these places? Some of them (like the one up in the tree) might be a little extreme, but the hobbit house looks like a ton of fun. Feel free to share the magic of these fairytale locations with your friends.
