I had the wonderful opportunity to spend the night at the Sandy Hill Light House this summer. From the minute I arrived until I left, Mary and Bill treated me as family. What a wonderful history the lighthouse has and Mary loves to share it. They have definitely put their heart and soul into restoring Sand Hill.
After we arrived, Mary gave us a tour. In the evening, she served us homemade dark chocolate brownies with raspberry sauce and ice cream as she played the grand piano. She is an accomplished pianist.
The sunset and sunrise on Lake Superior is beautiful. We were up before dawn to walk the shore line and watch the sunrise.
Breakfast consisted of strawberry preserves made the day before, homemade English muffins, a baked egg dish, turkey ham, a potato dish, and the most incredible danish I have ever had..
The lighthouse is filled with wonderful antiques. The rooms are spacious, decorated with interesting antiques, and each room has a private bathroom.
Sand Hill Lighthouse is just one of those little pieces of heaven still left on this earth and Mary and Bill are the loving keepers
If you have the opportunity to visit the UP, which is some of the most beautiful country I have seen in the US, make plans to spent some time at Sand Hill. I definitely plan to return..
