The Dining Experience of a Lifetime

Welcome to Our Hobbit Houses

The two Maker’s Mark Hobbit Houses at the Preserve each offer a one-of-a-kind dining experience with an upscale grilled menu and fine bourbon pairings. The magical setting evokes storybook fantasy, inspired by the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien, making a lunch or dinner you will never forget.

Nestled into hillside boulders, our two Hobbit House getaways are surrounded by lush landscapes with tree trunks incorporated into the architecture. No matter which Hobbit House you dine in, you’ll feel like you’ve entered Tolkien’s “Middle-earth” as a well-worn path leads you to an intricate round wooden door that swings open to reveal an intimate interior with stone floors and artfully stacked stone walls. The flicker of candlelight and charming decorative details complete this transporting experience.

Whether dining for lunch or dinner, each course is thoughtfully prepared using Le Creuset, the original enameled cast iron cookware that remains an iconic tabletop style statement. Gather around a custom-designed Maker’s Mark wood table—repurposed from former whisky barrels—for dinner and pairings, then unwind around the fire pit under the stars.

About Maker's Mark Bourbon

In 1953, in Loretto, Kentucky, Bill Samuels, Sr., fulfilled his dream to create a handmade and delicious bourbon. He decided to make his whisky in small batches, using soft red winter wheat to enhance the softness and sweetness. He then rotated each barrel by hand for consistency, and finally, aged each barrel to taste. Bill Samuels, Sr., transformed bourbon from a “commodity” into a premium handmade spirit, and today Maker’s Mark continues to make its bourbon the same way. In recent years, Maker’s Mark has introduced thoughtful, super-premium innovations to its portfolio including Maker’s Mark 46, Maker’s Mark Cask Strength, and Maker’s Mark Private Select, the brand’s first-ever custom barrel program. In 1980, the Maker’s Mark distillery became the first distillery in America to be designated a National Historic Landmark and has also been decreed as the “world’s oldest operating bourbon whiskey distillery” by Guinness World Records. It remains one of the Commonwealth of Kentucky’s most popular tourist destinations, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors annually. For more information, visit
