Adorable lighthouse with plenty of history. You can actually go up to the landing (only 3 people at a time, for a nominal fee). Great view of the bay!

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.
