  • We always make it a point, (pun intended) to visit the Betsie Point Lighthouse. We picked up several bags of Lake Michigan rocks for our Park Model in Florida; to bring a little piece of Michigan to F...  more »
  • Did not get there in time to tour lighthouse but caught a beautiful sunset with beautiful views of the lighthouse and blooming lilacs!  more »
  • Just beautiful! We've been several times. A must see when in the Frankfort area! Late spring, when the lilacs are in bloom, is a bonus!  more »

  • Point Betsie Lighthouse was the perfect stop for a cool and windy day. You can buy tickets (adults $5) that allow you to go up in the lighthouse and also visit a museum and the lighthouse living quarters. This would be the perfect place to bring a picnic lunch as the grounds are gorgeous!
  • One of the most beautiful lighthouses in MI! Point Betsie is beautiful to visit in every season. Summer is great - the beach is a small and little rocky but nice to swim at. Winter makes Point Betsie look completely different - I'd definitely recommend a visit at least once in winter. The light is open during the summer for tours.
  • Beautiful light house not too far off M22. Closed for season, but you can still get a good view from the coast side.
  • Beautiful sight but lacking a good vibe for tourists. Looks like there are apartments you can rent in the lighthouse. If you happen to be passing by check it out... otherwise don't make a special trip for it.
  • Beautiful! Even in the winter.
