Do you have adventure in your heart? Perched atop a cliff, this nostalgic fire tower lookout home is for those that want to explore the mountains, stargaze at night, and unplug from the world. Nestled at the base of Schweitzer Mountain, this home’s modern design was based on National Park architecture. This one-of-a-kind structure rises more than 60 feet above a granite cliff that captures the captivating views of the Cabinet Mountains, town of Sandpoint, and Lake Pend Oreille.

The space
This home will still give you all the amenities you enjoy such as a Smart TV in the bedroom, wi-fi, wood burning stove, wood pellet grill, and a telescope to check out the stars, planets and International Space Station as it rotates around us. We also provide a record player with 60's and 70's classic albums to mellow (or rock) out to after a long day of hiking or mountain biking. This home is truly special!

Did I mention adventure? Due to the steep driveway you will need a 4x4 or AWD in order to reach the fire tower. You may park at the lower driveway and hike up to the home (2 minute walk) if it looks too daunting. But we promise it is all worth it once you take in the views! Especially sitting in our two person hot tub that overlooks the valley.

The city of Sandpoint is known for trains so you'll hear the train whistle from the valley below. Personally we enjoy trains so it hasn't been a concern for us but if you're not used to it you can use the "white noise" player or ear plugs in the bedroom to muffle the train whistles at night.

Sorry no pets or children as there is a tight spiral staircase between the two floors. There is a wider exterior staircase that can be used as well.

Where you’ll be

Sandpoint, Idaho, United States

Quiet neighborhood of primarily retired professionals. Homes are built far apart so you'll feel you are part of the mountain and not in a neighborhood.
