  • Beautiful spot. Well taken care of. Great gardens in the back. Walk way to the cement boardwalk. You can walk a small quiet stretch of beach.
  • Gorgeous gardens, great photo op! You can walk down to the sidewalk beside the water and it’s beautiful. Also the lighthouse was super cool to see all the old furniture and different bios of the keepers over the past decades. Because the lighthouse is still active, you cannot go all the way to the top (but you can go up to the landings). The steps are steep and narrow. We took engagement photos here with a tripod. Love that they allowed us to do that. Thank you!
