  • It costs $6 to climb the tower, but it's worth it on a nice day. The tower is not for anyone unable or unwilling to do the long haul up the stairs or those afraid of heights. The store itself is right beside the tower, and the drive out through the mountains is beautiful. The amount of reasonably priced food (ice cream, fudge, hot dogs, etc), great local and tourist gifts, and the general atmosphere make for a fun visit!
  • Visiting family in Wythville. We traveled from West Texas. This place is absolutely beautiful. I don't remember the lady's name that was working, however she was so pleasant and friendly. Made the whole experience of being a tourist wonderful for once.
  • The views of the surrounding mountains are majestic. The ownership of the store were friendly and made the stop well worth it.
  • This place is wonderful, everything you could want from a country store. I wish they would rethink the lookout fees since we didn't want to climb the tower and the drawbridge wasn't worth 4-6 per person, but even still, highly recommended if you like country stores
  • This uncrowded attraction has great views. It is close to I-77 on US Route 52 - once the main road. Years ago it was much more crowded. The store has excellent ice cream made in a local creamery. On Sunday afternoons, they often have live music.
