There's only a few fire towers left in Wisconsin, and now you can stay the night under one that has been preserved and even go inside it.

Before we get into the nitty gritty of the cabin. Let's talk about that historic Gordon Fire Tower. It was originally built in 1935 and is a 100-foot Aermotor. I tried looking up what exactly is an Aermotor, and all I could find was information on windmills. It also features a US Forest Service-style stairway. Bonus for the nature lovers, it overlooks the St. Croix watershed and very scenic views. The listing even says it has the most scenic view of all Wisconsin fire towers.

The cabin dates back to the 1930's, but it has been well maintained. It is a single room cabin that has some pretty cool features; including an old time radio, classic wood paneling, snowshoe rocking chairs, and an open ceiling.

As a guest, you'll have access to the entire property. That includes the cabin, the historic fire tower, and all of its immediate area. There is also a RV electric hookup available. There is also a cleared area through a short trail for tent camping as well. If you're wondering about a bathroom, there is a self-composting toilet on site.

The cabin and fire tower is located in Gordon, Wisconsin. Which is about a 50 minute drive from Duluth, depending on where you are. You can reserve the cabin on Airbnb and you can check some pics below:
