Lovely place to embrace both nature and history at once. It is well maintained and the lake front is welcoming all visitors to plunge feet into the water. It's nice to know that the very place also Mark's the 45th north parallel. Which makes the...More

Easy access. The road to go there is really beautiful as well. Parking is small. The place makes you want to spend some time there and just relax.

This is a very scenic, quiet place. The lighthouse is very small, but surrounded by TONS of scenic opportunities. There is a beach right in front, so you can catch some quiet rays there. I believe I saw some walking trails, as well???
