Great place, incredible views from the tower rain or shine! I’d recommend bringing some extra water as the spring is a ways away, but all around a great stay and a great cozy setup in the tower.

Heather is the BEST host. She is very friendly and was more than responsive to our needs, and we were very needy this trip. Her property is gorgeous and well cared for. The views from the fire tower are amazing and it's a great spot to sit and read. We loved it so much we never left the property. This is the perfect place to retreat!

Ringing in the new year in solitude

We thoroughly enjoyed ringing in the New Year at the firetower. What beautiful craftsmanship of the firetower and the outhouse was super cool too. Heather was a great host. She gave us info on directions to the firetower and to the farm. She checked in to make sure we were all set. The firetower was spotless as well as the outhouse. The solitude was just what we were looking for after the crazy holiday. Brizo, our dog could explore the fields (and found plenty of deer poop even though we didn’t see any deer). The weather wasn’t the best for sunrise or long distance views of the surrounding mountains. But the heavy fog and misty clouds gave this place a special feel to it. We felt so lucky to be able to stay at this hipcamp, hearing the story behind the area of Slatesville and how her husband and her have been working this farm is very interesting. We were able to explore the trails over by the main farm the day we left and checked out the quarry pond. Frozen, no polar plunge for us. :). But I can only imagine what it would be like in the summer. Heather listed this as a place to bring your van in the winter. And it worked out just great!

the property is a little tricky to get to, but once you do find the space, it's 100% worth it. you get unbroken views at the top of the tower, 1 floor below is a second platform with a table and chairs. the whole property was super clean: outside, inside, and even the out-house, everything was kept very clean. very quiet, large, and private space with great views. heather was very accomodating!

Heather was so accommodating! Definitely worth bringing a small propane heater in the winter but it wasn't too cold with sleeping bags. Beautiful view of the stars!

The tower was stunning with by far one of the best views once inside. Cute and cozy and just perfect for a weekend getaway. We absolutely loved cooking breakfast on the fire and when we mentioned we had forgotten to pack coffee Heather made us a fresh pot! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience

Heather was an amazing host and the lookout tower was truly a dream! We enjoyed every second of it. We where greeted by her two turkeys, which promptly followed a scenic ride up to the tower. The views of the changing tress we immaculate and we could not have asked for a better trip!

If you need a break from your daily lives or want to just be around nature, choose Heather’s 360 tower!
Huge property, well maintained and beautiful views !
Heather is a welcoming host superb to work with. The highlight of our trip was definitely the ATV ride with Heather around her property! We had a great time seeing everything and learning more about Heather and her husband’s visions for the property.
We had been eyeing her property on hipcamp for almost a year and I was finally able to book one day on the day before my birthday! And it really made my day!!
