South Manitou Island Lighthouse reviews
Get out here on your own boat if you can. Beautiful and quiet. Great views of the mainland and the dunes out here are double the size. more »
Vistied the Lighthouse to gain information to make a model of it. Parks Service Volunteer Docent Mark was very knowledgeable and helpful. It's a short walk from the boat dock to the lighthouse... more »
Amazing place. After staring at this place from Homestead and Glen Arbor for years, I did finally make it awhile ago. Wish I could live in the lighthouse. Definitely work a visit. One of my favorite lighthouses in the country. Been over 20 years, but I'm seriously considering moving back to this area.
I had an amazing experience with my family. We had a volunteer tour guide take us up to the top and she has to be one of the best guides I've ever had. Had lots of information on the history of the lighthouse and stories too! I also took a trip to a cliff overlooking one of the shipwrecks and the cedar forest on the island. Beautiful scenery and amazing weather!
