“Breath taking views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

I kept my feet firmly planted in the soft white sand while the rest of the family climbed to the top. The grandsons, who normally tire after a short walk while "exploring", were very excited and took the 130? steps with excitement. My wife said the views were breathtaking of the lake and the beauitful while sandy beach.

“Hard to Find; Great to See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Not all GPS seem to have this site listed and I can sure tell you that many locals don't know where it is! But once you get there it is all worth it. The structure is colorful, graceful and isolated from the background. When I was there the second time, it was open. ONLY 130? steps to the top. If you are a photographer, the best shots seem to be from the north and the west. The stormier it is, the better the sky background. The beach is open, clean and deserted....perfect for kids and dogs.

“What a Beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Wonderful beach at he lighthouse, very well kept landscaping. A gentleman was sweeping sand the morning I was there, making it very tidy for the day's onslaught of visitors.
Lovely beach to walk, many birds and the sky was amazing the day I was there - off season.

The drive could be a bit tricky if you don't have GPS I think, but worth the effort.

“Great beach awesome lighthouse and pet friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Well worth the drive out to this great light! The beach is spectacular and dog friendly. The lighthouse is beautiful. We didn't climb to the top but I'm sure the view is worth the climb. We hung out on the beach and let the dog swim. :)

“Very pictureque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

One of the most picturesque lighthouses on the Eastern shore of Lake Michigan. Not a bad climb even for a senior like me. It was 130 steps to the top on a winding iron spiral staircase. At the top there was a guide to tell you about the lighthouse's history and you can wolk outside on the balcony encircling the lighthouse. A definite must if you enjoy lighthouses
