Welcome to River Forest Lookout, a one-of-a-kind off-grid oasis perched on 14 acres of secluded land deep in the enchanting Cohutta Wilderness. This unique destination offers an extraordinary opportunity to immerse yourself in the beauty of remote, mountain nature at its absolute finest.

The lookout tower is a testament to the splendor of the great outdoors, offering breathtaking views; River Forest Lookout commands spectacular views over the Cohutta Wilderness.

Rising 60 feet above the forest floor, this extraordinary structure is crafted from two shipping containers, referred to as "cabs". Inside, you'll find all the comforts you need, including a kitchenette, a cozy living area, a comfortable bed in the main cab, and a full bathroom thoughtfully housed in a second cabin. The Lookout is equipped with running water from a well, propane wall heaters, and even a mini wood burning stove to keep you warm during those cool mountain evenings. For eco-conscious guests, electricity is supplied by a solar panel system, ensuring a minimal environmental footprint.
