“Pretty minus the construction”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Loved the lighthouse unfortunately went while some renovations were taking place so couldn't enjoy views from the inside. Nice walkway to observation area for those who like to bird-watch. Grounds well maintained.

“Bodie and Birds”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Visited in January, and the number and variety of birds was astounding. Nice viewing area. I think the lighthouse is going to be available for climbing when renovations are completed tho. not positive about this. Lovely site.

“My favorite lighthouse”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Love Bodie . . . don't miss it! It's a handsome, sturdy lighthouse that shines out for 19 miles. And there's a boardwalk and observation tower for great bird-watching. All free and beautifully-maintained. The site will become even more interesting as restoration on three more structures from the OBX past are restored.
