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.

This was very beautiful and was a joy to see. My 4 year was so amazed!

This was a fabulous tour. After a tour of the home we were able to actually go up into the lighthouse tower all the way to the top. The kids were very excited! Our tour guide was quite knowledgeable and very friendly. Surrounded by a beautiful lakefront park but be careful if you stop to picnic, the gulls get a little crazy. Overall well worth it and a great stop.

Nice tour. Remember not to wear flip flops if you're climbing the lighthouse.

Love their gift shop and feel like when I make a purchase there I'm helping the light house. Lots of good photo opportunities
