The drive up here from Traverse City is lovely...beautiful scenery and lots of little farm stands along the way selling apples, pumpkins and other fall delights. The lighthouse itself is small and charming with some great water and woodland views. I also really enjoyed all of the hiking trails heading out from the lighthouse area...more good water and forest views.

The lighthouse was small but we had a great experience. They also have a small cabin that you can see. We did have a lot of black flies all around us.

The guides at this lighthouse were so friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the exhibits, and learned so much about the rigorous lives of lighthouse keepers.

Reasonable priced tourist attraction with a great view over the lake. Small, but informative. Very narrow steps to climb to the top of the lighthouse.

Very clean area and easy to walk around. It had a little log cabin next to Lighthouse you could check out. The lighthouse was clean and very nice, the grounds and view of the water was pretty. The gift shop and museum would have been nicer if not so crowded. They should put a limit as to how many can go in there at a time.
