  • Stayed in the little apartment right next to the lighthouse. It was so cute, very clean, and very quiet at night. The lighthouse and gift shop are very nice and the view from the top is breathtaking! Trail down to the water if you want a quick hike or can just drive down and park basically right at the shoreline. Will definitely plan on staying there again!
  • Such a beautiful light house. The house keepers were friendly and shared the history of the original owner, wife and 9 children. The museum tour was $3. $1 donation for the stamp for the light house passport book. Across the street there was a picnic area with portable toilets and hand washing station. There was a dog potty area and trails nearby.
