“Beautiful!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

Just a few stairs up to the most amazing view. Certainly worth the $7 and the steps up. The view is
absolutely spectacular!
Don't believe CJ though about food recommendations in the area. Uncle Ike's is really bad food and atmosphere. That was the most disappointing part of the lighthouse visit!

“Best light house ever”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

I love light houses and have visited quite a few. This is my favorite so far. They have done a wonderful job with presenting the history of this lighthouse and displaying on large wall displays at each level within the light house landings allowing you a place to catch your breath and see interesting info on the history and mechanics of a light house. The grounds are well kept and the staff is eager to share their knowledge.

“Original & Beautiful Lighthouse”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

The lighthouse is breath taking and you can actually walk to the top at your own speed. This is a beautiful place to just set and take in the craftsmanship of the lighthouse itself. They have done very little to take away from the originality of the house. There are several shops surrounding the lighthouse that you can enjoy. Many of them little jewels that add to the experience of the lighthouse (little coffee shop, book store, etc). We also had lunch at one of the local shops. Really enjoyed and will return.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

We just went to the lighthouse to take a quick picture before heading home. It was very beautiful. One of the prettier lighthouses that we saw because it is unpainted.
