Piece of History - and still working!

We enjoyed our visit here - There's a beautiful rocky beach you can wander on, and a nice gift shop as well as the lighthouse.

There are a few other exhibits on the grounds that are worth seeing. The lighthouse itself looks cool and is worth the climb. Only bummer is that you can't go all the way up. The gift shop is wonderful and has many great postcards and other things as well. Also, the view of the Lake is fantastic from up there!

Excellent restoration of this 110 year old Lake Superior Lighthouse. Staff in period dress showed us around and actually gave us time to explore. Really glad we went.

Fun to see a real working lighthouse. The grounds are dotted with extra things to see including the wheel house from the Frontenac. They also have a B&B on site. Friendly staff and great views. Lots of history.

We stopped here while driving along the North Shore. Cute little lighthouse, and the grounds have picnic tables. There are trails around too. We walked to the end of the pier and watched a freighter come in, which was very interesting.

We travel a lot and it's fun meeting people. But the nice lady at Two Harbors is from Corpus Christi, Tx. I'm from Houston Tx, so it was great learning about Two Harbors from a lady with a Texas accent. I felt right at home. Two Harbors is a working lighthouse. The gift shop has a lot a great gifts...

Big sign.... Open year round, not! Closed and No vacancy. Beautiful spot but no access when we arrived. Recommend you call before taking this long drive here.

lighthousebb, Manager at Two Harbors Lighthouse, responded to this review

I wanted to let you know the "no vacancy" is regarding the Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast. We have four rooms in the B@B and have many reservations booked months in advance. The Lighthouse Museum and Gift Shop hours are 10-6 Monday-Saturday and 10-4 on Sunday. The Museum in not open year round but the B@B is. More
