Wonderful hosts; the orientation to the lighthouse and breakfast were great. The rooms and lighthouse are beautifully restored and maintained. We hiked along the bluffs, and watched the sunset from the lighthouse tower. Comfortable common areas to talk with the other guests. I would love to return! Wish we could have stayed longer.

Our first 6 hours here were tense; we all felt as though we were invading Jeff's space; but in the end, we pushed past the alienation and found ourselves genuinely liking him and learning about the area from him; however I don't believe anyone should be made to feel unwanted in a B & B. Ok, the lighthouse is amazing... More

Very nice rooms, great food, cookies in the evening. Jeff and Linda were very informative about places to see in the area, including the fire works show that occurred while we were there and we enjoyed listening hearing their stories. Close enough to Marquette to visit museums, etc. Facilities were very clean and there was a nice screened gazebo.

We recently stayed at the Big Bay Lighthouse and had a fabulous time. I was surprised to see the posting titled "Tense Atmosphere." All I can say about that review is how rude. They had mentioned that they don't like to talk but they sure did have a lot to say on this website about perceived lack of attention. My... More

I don't usually write reviews, but I feel compelled to warn other potential guests about this seemingly delightful B & B. Big Bay Point Lighthouse is beautifully preserved, and offers an incredible opportunity for guests to have free reign of the tower, including at sunset. The grounds are also lovely, and the view of the lake--including from some of the... More

The drive to Big Bay from Marquette is rather lovely, and I bet it is spectacular in Fall. I wanted to see this lighthouse, now a B&B for many years. There was a man working in the garden near the back of the lighthouse, next to the parking lot. I parked in their small lot, and waited for him to... More

Thank you for your review. I have talked to our gardener about being more responsive to visitors. Our lighthouse has tour times posted as Sundays and Wednesdays at 1 & 2. The rest of the time is reserved for our guests. More

Had a wonderful time. Highly recommend. Food was great. Jeff and Linda were wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home. Plenty of things to do in the area and the grounds are beautiful if you want to just hang around the Lighthouse. Even got to see a bear!

Don't let the cold nor snow keep you away from this awesome bed and breakfast. It is beautiful! We stayed in the Keeper McDoanld room for two nights. We found the room to be very cozy, clean and appreciated the towel warmer. The innkeepers John and Linda were very nice and understanding when we arrived past check in time due... More

This lighthouse is a beautiful bed and breakfast. I highly recommend a room on the first floor, although we stayed in Asst Beamer's room with the lake view and loved it. We toured all the rooms before people checked in. Get there early to do that! The food for breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Be sure to climb up to... More

In the late 1990's hubby, the kids & I toured the light house on one of the weekly tours. Our kids were young at the time but we wanted to come back to Big Bay some time to stay. Fast forward to 2014, kids are grown, we are empty nesters, we finally get the chance to return to Big Bay... More
