This is the first lighthouse I've seen up close and personal. It was a lot taller than I thought so I had to stand back to get the entire lighthouse in a picture. We were able to also view Lake Michigan from the seating area....More

What a beautiful, well maintained lighthouse. There was no tour available, but we walked the grounds down to the water.

The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because it is only open one day a month. But if you enjoy lighthouses, this is worth a stop. There is a nice little garden area with benches where you can sit and enjoy the...More

The tower is open for tours on the first Sunday of the month. There is a lovely park with gorgeous garden beds. Definitely classic views of Lake Michigan, the inland sea.

Interesting history and view. Tours are limited, and not sure I wanted to do the steps. Take time to read the plaques and bricks.

The lighthouse itself is only available for tours once a month during the summer, so we did not actually go in, but it is always available for a quick walk around. There's was a wedding taking place the day we visited--what a nice backdrop.

We heard just heard of the death of a friend in our home town and we so enjoyed sitting in then memorial-dedication garden. The plantings and the Lake access with the waves and little beach area was very soothing.
