On a day trip to Rochester, we headed east and visited Sodus Point. The staff at the lighthouse could not have been nicer, even though we arrived right at their closing time. They graciously still gave us a tour and allowed us to take our time. Great, historic place to visit, and the views from the lighthouse were terrific!

I am by no means an enthusiast when it comes to sailing, or ships, or anything nautical really, but if I was this museum would have been an absolute delight. I however went for one reason, to see the views from and the ability to climb up an old lighthouse. It did not disappoint. For a small fee you can... More

Our trip home to Mass. from Rochester, New York could have been just a 7+ hour drive (with stops) along Rte. 90 seeing only cars, trucks and rest areas, but we decided we'd do some sightseeing along the way. Sometimes the journey is just as important as the destination, so, about an hour from Rochester, we took take a sharp... More

If you go to the light house you will find beautiful grounds, a well maintain light house and lots of interesting history. What you wont find is a bathroom and don't make the same mistake I did by thinking the sign means it is for museum visitors. I went to use the outside bathroom which did have a sign on... More

Very interesting tour. Fun to climb to the top of the Lighthouse and to see out on Lake Ontario and Sodus Bay. Lots of history and guides made it enjoyable.

Spent the day in Sodus Point. Sat outside the lighthouse on the nicely landscaped grounds. A wedding had just taken place- the weather was perfect. Will have to go inside next time.

We liked the guides choice of long or short version of the history lesson. Also, liked the view from the top of the light house.

My husband and I stopped here to just relax and enjoy the view. There wasn't anybody else around so it was really peaceful. The day was gorgeous. The view spectacular. Coming back here again

We recently visited the Sodus Point Lighthouse. It was our last Lake Ontario Lighthouse to see. The sun was shining, the water was a brilliant blue, and the lighthouse is the perfect addition to such a beautiful spot. There is a museum with a guide and a small gift shop, too.

This day they had a wedding party on site and the ceremony in front of the arch with flowers and the water, truly a special place to start a relationship. As lighthouse fans, we were there for the tour, and enjoyed the climb to the tower and all it held. Nice gift shop and friendly volunteers make the place a... More
