This is by far one of the coolest places I have stayed! Secluded on the top of Gem Peak, nothing beats the 360 degree view! Be prepared to climb many steps often, as the outhouse is located on the ground a ways away from the tower. Also, for the same purpose, don't forget headlamps and lanterns! The view of the night sky is unreal from the tower. I didn't want to leave! There are two separate single beds, table and chairs, and a counter space. Don't forget to sign the guestbook and to use the cleaning supplies to pick up after yourself for the next lucky person!
