Winger: "Sturdy design."
Cutter: "Good sight lines"
Burple: "Oh, it's so cool. Can Haggis sleep over?"
Dak: "It does look pretty great."
Duggard: "Then it's decided. The lighthouse is the new home of the Rescue Riders."[src]
   

The Roost is a converted lighthouse used as a home base for the members of the Rescue Riders.

Physical Appearance

Exterior

The exterior of the Roost consists of a wide base constructed of wood and stone, with a central white-painted stone tower rising about four stories high. The top is capped with a conical, sloping red roof. The top story has a wooden wrap-around balcony. Tall arching window are interspersed around the tower. Below the ground floor is a large, cavernous basement of sorts. There is a double-doored entrance beneath the hill to this basement area. The Rescue Riders have installed a zip-line from the top of the lighthouse to the ground, in order to quickly descend without having to use the stairs.

Interior

The interior of the lighthouse proper is very open with shelving and a winding staircase leading to the top of the building. Presumably the sleeping area for the humans Dak and Leyla are on the top floor. The ground floor also has a large fireplace. On the floor is a trapdoor, leading to a cavern beneath the structure, which the dragons refer to as their 'sleeping cave'. The cave is unfinished, with a depression in the center where the dragons keep red-hot heated stone for warmth.

Functions

Shelter

The Roost serves as the home and base of the Rescue Riders. It is a place where they can sleep and eat, as well as play games and train for rescue missions.

Nursery

The Rescue Riders bring home and raise lost and orphaned dragon eggs at the roost. They have equipped the building with supplies such as small hay nests, warm fires, bath tubs, and toys.

Training Grounds

The Rescue Riders use the area adjacent to the Roost as training grounds for target practice or scenario training.

History

Dragons: Rescue Riders, Season 1

In "The Nest", the Rescue Riders saved the Chief of Huttsgalor from a shipwreck and took him home. They also helped with repair of the village after a terrible storm. After some hijinks, the Chief asked the Rescue Riders to stay in Huttsgalor. He offered the old, un-used lighthouse as a home for them.

Dak set up a training area just outside the Roost to practice 'fast blast drills' with a large number of brightly colored bullseye targets, in "Deep Trouble"

Burple encountered the Phantom Fang outside the Roost's sleeping cave in "Boo to You".

In "Where There's Smoke, the Rescue Riders brought a Fire Fury named Aggro back to the Roost and showed her around. They invited her to join the team and she accepted.

Aggro was left alone to watch a fire just outside the Roost in "Iced Out", making her feel isolated and un-needed.

Most of the dragon Rescue Riders were grounded at the Roost due to being ill with the Dreaded Dragon Flu in "Sick Day". They inadvertently cause some minor damage due to their inability to control their abilities.
