  • Beautiful views from top of the lighthouse. The legacy of the house and inn keepers was very interesting. I loved the wooden planks all along the lighthouse as well to Lake Michigan it was fun see all the loving words written along the waters and you can even do your own memorial plank for $100.00. Again Beautiful A Must See !!
  • There is a 1.8 mile walk to the lighthouse, but the path was easy. There are lots of dunes on each side of the path. There is a short film before climbing the tower, and a few artifacts to see on the way up. The view from the tower is beautiful, and a sense of direction is written on the rail. It is one of the tallest lighthouses in MI. It was very windy when we were there.
  • Literally one of the best lighthouses in Great Lakes area! The building itself is nice and tall and the scenery around is amazing
  • Went on an expedition a few years ago during a balmy October and found this gem. Great hike to there and back! Very scenic and photogenic! Climbing to the tower and seeing the lake and landscape around is breathtaking! You don't want to miss this lighthouse!
  • Beautiful lighthouse which is open to the public. Volunteers are knowledgeable and friendly. Lighthouse is surrounded by many hiking trails through the sand dunes and surrounding forests.
