We stayed at the Big Idaho Potato airbnb last year, which is owned by Kristie Wolfe. She does an amazing job with unique airbnbs and other unique places to stay around Idaho, and has launched a brand new property. MoonPass Lookouts is made up of fire lookout towers near Wallace, Idaho, and is a great day trip from Boise.

MoonPass Lookouts are located on a 55-acre property, and each tower is 30 feet tall, with 360-degree windows making for a great experience.

MoonPass Lookouts Property

At MoonPass Lookouts, there are five custom-built fire lookout towers, and each includes a kitchen, a bathroom, a private sauna, a wood-burning stove, and a glass roof for stargazing; as well as a museum that will take you through the history of the Great Fire of 1910. You can also bring your pet to MoonPass Lookouts.

And there are so many things to do while there, including hiking, fishing in the on-site pond or Placer Creek, sitting by the fire, or staying inside and stargazing.

Great Fire of 1910 History

Along with the five towers, Wolfe has also created a museum that will take you through the history of the Great Fire of 1910. Wolfe is hoping the towers will help pay for the museum, something that is clearly close to her heart.

“Indulge in a historical and bucket-list-worthy experience by visiting the city of Wallace, Idaho,” said Wolfe. “This city holds significance as the starting point of the Great Fire of 1910, also known as the ‘Big Burn,’ which remains one of the largest forest fires in U.S. history. As part of the MoonPass Lookout property, you will have the opportunity to explore The Fire Lookout Museum, which showcases the history and impact of this devastating event.”

She added that, “one of the notable figures from the Great Burn is Ed Pulaski, a hero who led his firefighting crew to safety in a mine shaft. You can embark on a beautiful 5-mile hike from our MoonPass property to visit this mine shaft, paying homage to Pulaski’s bravery and the historical significance of the event.”

“I’m hoping the tower rentals will fund the Fire Lookout Museum. In doing so, we can create a space where folks can learn about our forests, fire history, and pick up some important fire safety tips” Wolfe said.
