Watch Tower Cabin in Terebonne

This is a watch tower cabin in Terebonne, Oregon. Outside, you’ll notice a three story square structure with a fun cupola-style green metal roof. Around the third floor wraps a large deck where you can stand and take in the beautiful surrounding landscape. The third floor has bays of windows on all four sides, which allows for wonderful natural light in the main living area of the house. The “body” of the house is shingled with cedar shakes.

When you go inside, you’ll find the interior is all stained knotty pine. The upper level is 20 X 20 feet and includes two couches and robin’s egg blue cabinetry in the corner kitchen. A wood-burning stove heats the area from the center of the main room. Cook BBQ on the deck or go downstairs to the two bedrooms and 1.5 baths. You can go to the ground level and hop in a hot tub and enjoy views of the mountain range.

    This is a nice solution in a great location. The top level is 400 sq. ft. So I wonder what the two lower levels are used for. Is it a 3-unit B&B?

      Bedrooms and bathrooms plus an office are located on the lower levels.

    They need to install a dumbwaiter in a shaft that loads on the outside, but empties on the upper inside. This way, you don’t have to lug groceries up all those stairs. A washer and dryer would be nice, too. 😉

    Nice that could be a fantastic cabin. Bedroom top deck, kitchen, living, bath on second deck and garage shop on bottom deck. could be a perfect house.
