I helped Jon a little while on a jet ski he was working on and I enjoyed talking to him and helping him. Maggie... More

We were looking for a spur of the moment place to go overnight. We had no idea this was nearby. The lighthouse is so unique and the other room with screened porch was very cozy as well. We took our 18 and 13 year old daughters and they thoroughly enjoyed staying in the lighthouse, riding the paddle boat and getting... More

A very relaxing place to stay. Tug and Maggie were excellent hosts. The breakfast and the view were both awesome. The ride on the tugboat to the marina for supper was a very unique experience. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this experience.

The is one of the most relaxing places to stay. The lake is beautiful and clean. There is a paddle boat to have fun in and you get a free ride on the tug boat. The ride lasts for an hour or so and is just wonderful. The owners are the best. Tug and Maggie are so nice and feel... More

My wife and I found out about this B&B while surfing the 'net for a place to stay over Veterans Day weekend. I'm glad we chose to stay at AnchorLight because it was a once in a lifetime experience. This couple has built their lifelong dream and now shares it with others. We enjoyed spending the evening in the top... More
