Guests must please note that the fireplace is for ambiance and will not heat the space in winter. A French press, an electric griddle, and a toaster oven are provided for cooking. Guests can also use the flat-screen television for playing movies through the provided DVD player. An aptly placed hammock offers stunning views of the property while glampers relax in style.

A charming repurposed corn crib outhouse remains open for use during winter months. The hosts are thrilled to have guests any time of year, but guests who plan a trip during winter months are kindly asked to come with the mentality of winter camping with a few frills.

Location + Surroundings

This dramatic tower sits in rural Helenville, Wisconsin, at a beautiful wedding venue. Guests can breathe in the fresh air, see billions of stars spread across the night sky, and hear local wildlife throughout much of the year. Fireflies flit over the gorgeous fields in July. The tower is halfway between the bustling cities of Milwaukee and Madison, so glampers can easily access city life. Glacial Drumlin Trail is nearby, which is one of Wisconsin's greatest biking trails. Guests can also check out local snowmobile trails, or visit one of the many rivers or lakes nearby. The serene Bark River is just a quick eight-minute drive from the tower, and it is perfect for a calm day on the water. The Rock River and the Crawfish River can also be accessed within 15 to 20 minutes.


  • Biking
  • Wildlife watching

Glampers will adore sitting in their hammock swing and surveying the gorgeous grounds with a hot cup of coffee from the French press. There is a delightful fire pit with seating, which is ideal for storytime in the evenings. Glacial Drumlin Trail, one of Wisconsin's very best biking trails, is extremely close to the tower. There are also trails for snowmobiling and even cross-country and downhill skiing options less than an hour away. Just eight minutes from the tower sits Bark River, where guests can go kayaking or canoeing on its calm waters. Since the tower sits between Milwaukee and Madison, big city restaurants, movie theatres, bars, cafes, and more are all within an easy distance.
