Beautiful drive & scenery bring you to this "off the road" little piece of history. Delightful & educational. Explains lighthouses, their important need and place in our history and how they worked. I plan to return when the Museum is open. Check their website for times and scheduled trips up the 140 steps to the top. There is a per... More

This was our second visit. We had a lot of time to kill, but hate the cold weather. Although we only spent about five minutes on the pier outside the lighthouse due to the lake winds, it was so worth it. It was very cold, foggy afternoon.

One of the most picturesque places in the area. Great views, landscaping and history. I would recommend a trip up the stairs to the top for the incredible view.
