Gifted designer Kristie Wolfe reinvented a fire lookout tower from the 1950s, turning it into a humble abode piercing above the tree line. Located in Fernwood, Idaho, the Crystal Peak Lookout is a peaceful place to free your mind and leave your problems at ground level, at least for the time being.
Previously a hunting lodge before being acquired by Wolfe, the 196-square foot refuge is a single space with a double bed, kitchenette complete with a cooler, indoor fireplace, wood-burning stove, and a sink. The off-grid rustic Airbnb haven is built on a 40-foot frame and also as an accompanying woodshed. You’ll be surrounded by windows in the lookout, allowing the sun to gently wake you up to enjoy the view. Note that you’ll need a 4WD vehicle to get to the property or a snowmobile if you decide to sleepover during the winter. Live out your treehouse dreams and expand your horizon by staying at this cozy Airbnb for $200 per night.
