  • Unfortunately this time of the year the lighthouse itself was not open, but you were able to walk around , take pictures and enjoy the beautiful view from the beach.

  • This is a great old light house. The drive out from traverse city goes through some amazing vineyards and local orchards. In the summer time you will see many local fruit and vegetable stands as well as lots of activity in the fields. In the wintertime it is quiet and the views are amazing due to the trees with out leaves. The light house in the summer is great, But I actually like it in the winter time better. You stand on the shores looking out over the ice and it looks like the end of the world. If it is a good year the Ice will pile up and make some great caves and mounds, hard to believe the strength of the wind and waves to move such large pieces of Ice. Very cool place, very quiet in the wintertime.
  • We were here during the off season. This is an absolutely beautiful area. The lighthouse itself is very impressive looking. The beach is gorgeous. We really enjoyed the trail system. We hiked for about four hours and did a lot of geocaching. If you enjoy hiking and historical buildings, this is a fantastic place to visit.
