Point Betsie Lighthouse

Point Betsie Lighthouse

Standing tall and proud along the shores of Lake Michigan, Point Betsie marks the southern entrance to the Manitou Passage. Located near Frankfort, Michigan, its light has been protecting sailors, and ships, from the many maritime dangers that exist since its construction in 1858. Timeless charm and easy accessibility help explain why Point Betsie is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the state of Michigan. Parking your car just yards away from this beauty, you'll be welcomed by the sights and sounds of Lake Michigan
