Big Bay Point Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast
For over a century, mariners have relied on Big Bay Point’s light to guide them along this remote and rocky stretch of Michigan coastline. Although automated in 1941, the romance and lore of the site are undimmed.
Sit before the fire in the living room, and recount the lighthouses you have seen and plan to see. Hike, bike, Ski, or snowshoe along the shore, or on the many trails in the area. Experience the deep solitude and unspoiled beauty of nature at the lighthouse inn.
In 1986, the two story brick building and its adjoing 60-foot-high, square tower were converted into a bed-and-breakfast. The 14-room inn has seven guest rooms with private baths, a common living room, and library, as well as a sauna. Guests enjoy all the conveniences of modern life with the exception of individual television and phones. In addition, more than three acres of lawn, 40 acres of woods with trails are at the disposal of guests.
Climb to the lighthouse lantern, 120 feet above the lake surface. From this vantage point, visitors can survey open fields of native grasses and wildflowers, dense hardwood and pine forests, the majestic Huron Mountains looming in the distance and the ever-changing face of Lake Superior. The drama of offshore lighting-bolt dances, ice kaleidoscopes and dramatic gales, as well as the spectacle of the night sky and Aurora Borealis are breathtaking.
Visitors can retreat below to the intimacy of the light house interior where everyone is encouraged to relax in front of the living room fireplace. The atmosphere is friendly, relaxed and casual.
Guest rooms located on the first and second floor all afford a view. A good night’s sleep is guaranteed, but early risers may be rewarded with close-up view of deer, raccoons, rabbits, foxes, wild turkey and other assorted wildlife feeding in the meadow at daybreak.
High atop a cliff jutting into the clear, deep waters of Lake Superior, the Big Bay Point Lighthouse beckons adults in search of a secluded retreat from modern life. This unique bed-and-breakfast inn is one of the few surviving resident lighthouses in the country and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
