Lighthouse summary

Big Bay Point Lighthouse stands on a rocky point halfway between Marquette and Keweenaw Portage Entry. The establishment of a lighthouse at Big Bay Point was recommended by the Lighthouse Board in 1892, as coasting steamers had to change course at the point and there was protected anchorage on either side of the point.

Big Bay Point Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast is one of the last resident lighthouses in the United States. Relax by the fire in the living room, go hiking, biking, or skiing along the coast, or take on the many trails in the area. But most of all, enjoy the quietness and virginal beauty of nature around the Big Bay lighthouse.
