Summit Prairie is a one-of-a-kind stay built in 2009 that is modeled after fire lookout towers built by the US Forest Service in the early 1900s. It’s a magical, stay near Tiller Oregon that you won’t soon forget.
Summit Prairie sits 40 feet above the ground accessed by a staircase that gives you stunning views of the surrounding 160 acres of private land the higher you climb. It can hold 4 guests with 1 bedroom, 3 beds, and 1 bathroom. Unlike other older fire lookouts, it also has a full kitchen with running water, a propane stove, refrigerator, heater and lamps, and an exterior shower.

The main floor has wrap-around windows to let in summer breezes and breath-taking views. It’s the perfect place to relax, read, journal, and more. You can also enjoy amenities like hammocks and a secluded wood-fired, spring-fed hot tub located on the property. Not only that but you’re within driving distance of places like Crater Lake, Ashland, Rogue River Rafting, the South Umpqua Falls, and more.

Additionally, you will need to pick up groceries before coming as you’ll be deep in the wilderness. Finally, the bathroom is located at the base of the tower and is a pit toilet although the outdoor shower is located on the deck surrounded by breathtaking views.
If you’re looking for a catch here there isn’t really one except for the booking process. Due to how spectacular Prairie Summit is, it books up fast. Be sure to carefully read the Airbnb listing before booking to know exactly what the process is. Enjoy folks!
