Interior Lighthouse Photos

These, with a couple of exceptions, are some images of the interior of the Big Bay Point Lighthouse where Connie and I spent three nights during our last vacation.  A beautiful location overlooking Lake Superior about 25 miles west of Marquette, Michigan.  The lighthouse sits near a 60 foot bluff along the lake and the light itself is about 120 feet above the lake’s surface.  The lighthouse is now a bed and breakfast with seven guest rooms.
