The name Rivendell comes from Tolkien and The Hobbitt or Lord of the Rings books. In the books he says, "That house was a perfect house, whether you like food or sleep or story telling or singing, or just sitting and thinking, or a pleasant mixture of them all. Merely to be there was a cure for weariness, fear and sadness." That about sums it up for what we have created here at Rivendell for your time out pleasure. We include board games and books and stereo, and too much more to mention. We love when you return and tell us how much your vacation meant to you and your family while you were here.
