This fire lookout would be an awesome hunting getaway.

Looking for a one-of-a-kind place to get away from it all? This may be it. A decommissioned fire lookout tower is for sale in Benewah County Idaho.

Built in 1959 and relocated to its current location in 1985, the real estate listing for the tower shows what appears to be some pretty awesome views. No plumbing available of course, but there is a log outhouse.

I guess if you’re in the market for a fire lookout tower, you’ re probably used to roughing it anyway, right?

The lookout sits on 13 acres and the listing says big game have been seen in the area. It even appears part of the Osbourne fire finder lookouts used to call in a blaze is still at least partially intact in the photos on the listing.

The only downside we see is the price. $67,000 seems pretty steep for an old tower with no utilities. One must be paying for the scenic views.

Still, I know I want one. Anyone want to give me a loan?
