  • My boys and I loved checking this lighthouse out. At first I thought the price of admission was steep but that's what they need to keep the place open and staffed.  more »

  • We love Michigan's historical lighthouses and this one was beautiful. Unfortunately we couldn't tour the living areas because it's currently privately owned. However, you can go up the lighthouse tower. There's a small gift shop and you can also purchase tickets for two other lighthouse tours at a discount.
  • Loved the tour of the light house, also went fishing on the channel, very nice place.Lots of places to rent from cabins to beautiful motels, access to lake Michigan, it warms up in July and August so swimming is fun, but be careful of the undertow. It comes when the waves are big... Some beaches don't have life guards so be careful.
  • I Love this lighthouse. The staff is kind and courteous, and the museum is really interesting. Love the location too!
  • Nice employees. Nice lighthouse.
  • A lovely lighthouse museum, obviously cared for lovingly by a team of volunteers. It's in a beautiful location, and the views from the tower while climbing are lovely. This is a charming place to stop if you are interested in history. My boyfriend and I adored this place. However, if you are not able bodied this might not be the place to visit. You have to climb several steps to get into the lighthouse, then the official museum displays are on the second floor, and then you still would need to climb the lighthouse tower to get to the top. There is a paved, accessible walkway next to the water that give you a good view of the lighthouse but just know that if you can't climb stairs you will miss out on a major part of the experience.
