Off-The-Grid Living With A Couple of Modern Conveniences… All That And More In A Home 40 Feet Off The Ground!
If you’re looking for a place to get away from all the noise of the busy world; a place where you can rejuvenate your tired body and mind then look no further cause all you have to do is look up! The Summit Prairie in Douglas County, Oregon is an off-grid home modeled after fire lookout towers only slightly bigger for more living space, and with a couple of modern conveniences but is still mostly catered to those who are looking for something new in their off-the-grid living experience.
The overall build of the home is one big room with an ‘attic’ bedroom, which is accessible via a foldaway ladder. Guests will be treated to beautiful views of the Umpqua National Forest as they sit back and relax in the 40-foot high tower. Though the shelter already comes with modern facilities such as a full kitchen and a solar power grid, there is no TV or Wi-Fi access; the various options of off-grid style toilets is one of the great highlights though. The tower sits on a 40-acre meadow on 160 acres of private for those who wish to explore and immerse themselves in the surrounding wildlife.
Unfortunately, the Summit Prairie is fully booked for the 2018 season, so be ready to start making reservations for the 2019 season starting mid-April to mid-November; the nightly rate is about $175.
“Kind and amazing hosts, fun to talk with, amazing tranquility and peaceful space, gorgeous views, FUN LUXURIOUS lookout structure/treehouse, 40 feet up and at a higher elevation than Pickett Butte Lookout nearby. The meadow is divine with gorgeous delicate wildflowers, wild turkeys, a deer antler, surrounded by National Forest lands. We lucked out with perfect weather. But this place would be restful and beautiful even in harsh weather.”
