"Experience: that most brutal of teachers. But you learn, my God do you learn." -C. S. Lewis-
None so far have got very close so I'll go ahead and drop a hint...
You have probably heard the saying about my enemy's enemy...
Today is a good day for Pie.
Do not meddle in the affairs of Burglars, for they are subtle and quick to shank you.
Next: Crystal hair
"I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend," Faramir in TTT by JRRT.
my guess is the strands of hair that Galadriel gave to Gimli, which he was to set in imperishable crystal.
sorry, not remote enough.
Amon Rudh, refuge for Turin and his band of outlaws and former home of the Petty Dwarves.

I lol'ed at your first response. Very clever.
On the second, afraid not!
Is Gondolin remote enough?
sorry, too old.
Valinor maybe? That's a refuge for elves and its remote. My second guess is Rivendell.

I can honestly say that Valinor never crossed my mind as a possible answer, good one. I'll remember that in the future, but it's not the one I'm looking for. Nor is Rivendell - far too long lasting. I'll start narrowing it down further in the next day or so. Keep up the guesses!
Lothlorien where the fellowship stayed for a while? Or maybe the Gray Havens.
no to both. I will say you're in the correct Age of Middle Earth, but neither location is the event or locale that I'm looking for.
Frodo's new house at Crickhollow? Described as a refuge from the bustle of Brandy Hall, not really remote though?
Forochel, where King Arvedui hid from the Witch-King?
afraid not. you're thinking too recently. The event that spawned this riddle did occur in the Third Age, but further into the past.
