“Historic Place”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Great place to visit and has a great view of the lake! Make sure you go in the daytime to see all the history so you can look inside the house.

“Lighthouse”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

In a lovely setting, this building is architecturally interesting, but the inside is only open 2 afternoons a week, which was disappointing. But it's still a peaceful place to sit and enjoy the water.

“Beautiful location”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

The light house was not open during our visit. The building and grounds are a wonderful place to sightsee. We sat on a bench and viewed the lake which is a delight. This light house and grounds is a perfect place to just stroll around and take pictures.

“Great Photographic Opportunity!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

The grounds for this lighthouse are lovely, and perfect for a photo shoot. Both the lighthouse and its outbuildings are nice, and the views of Lake Erie and islands are fabulous! The lighthouse has somewhat limited hours to tour, so be sure to check ahead of your visit so you're not disappointed.

“Peaceful location”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Great view from the southwest corner of the island. While the grounds are clean and the outside is a neat take on the lighthouse, much of this attraction is the quiet view along this edge of the island. Within a few hundred yards of the main Miller Ferry port on the island, the lighthouse grounds are a great finish or a great start to touring the island upon arrival.

Only drawback is the view includes the cooling tower and billowing vapors from the nuclear facility across on the mainland, but there are plenty of views angled around it there.
