Owner description: A point in the storm and a guiding beacon since 1889, Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse helped passing ships navigate through the treacherous waters of the Straits of Mackinac. There's just as much to see from the top of the tower as inside the original buildings. Authentically restored quarters and exhibits, including the original lens and the Straits of Mackinac Shipwreck Museum, this "Castle of the Straits" is a true gem of the Great Lakes.

“Lovely Lighthouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

We were so happy to hear that this lighthouse had been restored and open for tours. It was closed when we visited the area yrs. ago. It is a lovely lighthouse and the tour guide did a great job. The view is beautiful from the top.

It is a very small lighthouse... the tour was very narrative.
