  • When we went the elevator was out of order, so we walked all the stairs up. If you have a hard time climbing stairs, you might not be able to do it. If the elevator works, then once you get off there ...  more »
  • Be sure to add this gem to your day. It is a little out of the way but worth it. The view from the top of the tower is awsome. Be sure to visit during fall colors.

  • Nice view and not too bad of a walk up the stairs to the top. The elevator may or may not be working
  • Wow! The view from here is amazing!! The elevator was broken the day I was there, but the way up looks really cool. 101 steps on the large flight of stairs and 23 in a tiny stair case. A bit pricey I thought. Ruins of an outhouse and another house are right near the tower but they aren't labeled.
  • What a beautiful view. Although the elevator is out of service at the moment we wouldn't have used it anyway. Easy climb to the top.
  • Best view in the area! Five stars for the view. 3-stars for the relatively poor maintenance of the tower and surrounding area. If you're visiting the area and are looking for something to do besides shopping or drinking, the Tower is a great place to visit. It gives you a taste of the old Bucks County, taking you back to times past. The hike up the hill is a great workout, though you can drive it if you choose. The views change considerably throughout the year from the stark grays of winter, to the greens of spring to the yellows and reds of autumn. Whenever you're in the area, you'll get a different perspective.
  • Nice scenic view; quick stop. Too bad its not open past 5:00 even in summer. FYI, may be no or limited internet--I couldn't Tweet, Periscope, etc in the area & even lmtd radio signals in area. Did find a picturesque old covered bridge up past Tower off side road & it worth checking out along w/ great scenic riding area.
