Rentals & Guides:
Imagine renting out an authentic, historic, cozy Forest Service Lookout Cabin nestled deep inside of the forest. Visualize and experience what life would have been like if you were a fire lookout living in this isolated location from May to October. No modern Day conveniences, just the smell and sounds of the forest. As you write your notes, it is so quiet, that you can hear your pen glide across the paper. The cabin and detached garage sit on a ridgeline above Beegum Gorge. One quarter of a mile down the road, at Post Creek, is the old swimming hole. This lookout offers you complete privacy, quietness, solitude, and a totally relaxing atmosphere.
