Description

Circa 1917. Located on 35 acres on the Keweenaw Peninsula, including 3,000 feet of private Lake Superior shoreline, this yellow-brick lighthouse was constructed around a seven-story, steel-beam core. Inside the massive structure are carved oak railings on the staircase, plaster medallions around all the light fixtures and antique Victorian furnishings throughout. The parlor offers a fireplace and has walls with floor-to-ceiling English paneling. For a special anniversary ask for the lavish King Room which features 96 yards of purple velvet in a crown canopy that flows around the bed. The room also features a decorative antique fireplace and scenic water views. The inn is open year-round, and from mid-May to mid-August lighthouse guests enjoy the unique experience of both sunrise and sunset views over the water. Gourmet breakfasts are served, including melt-in-your-mouth English scones. A lovely homemade dessert is served every evening while Mary entertains guests on a 110-year-old parlor Grand piano.

If you need wifi to update your facebook page ... stay home!

I just read the last review and think I can help with this person's confusion. I think if all comes down to age, empathy and intellectual curiosity. If your favorite childhood movie involved a Disney Prince or Princess that was a mermaid, a beast or involved a genie... stay home .... If your parents could afford braces for your teeth without economic struggle .... stay home. If you've never worn hand-me-down clothes from a cousin ... or sibling .... stay home! If you think Cole Porter is a Christmas ale from a micro-brewery... then stay home! If you have no appreciation of history or rationing during war times .... stay home! If you have no empathy in your ADHD brain for the men who went to work on the great lakes and the women who waited ... hoping they would return to them with a pay check to feed their children ... Then stay home! If you vacation for the sole purpose of posting photos on your facebook page to impress your friends and followers ... then stay home! If you think Mary is 90 ... then you are obviously 30 ... so stay home unless you have a curious mind for the wonders that await you at 5 mile point road. If you did not grow up with a favorite grandparents home, or a beloved aunt or uncle's home that was filled with antiques and treasures ... then stay home! Please stay home and leave availability for those of us who have our calendars marked and are counting the days until our return to Sand Hills. The 90 year old as you call her, upon arrival takes her guests strait to the top of the lighthouse without even breathing hard. I'm 52 and had to stop and catch my breath half way. My daughter and I had intended one night at the Sand Hills and ended up staying 4 and gave up plans to push on to Mackinac because I couldn't imagine that island had anything more beautiful than the shores of the lighthouse with the colors of the fall leaves in all their glory. And quite frankly we stayed because we fell in love with Mary the Inn keeper. She opens her home to guests and treats you like a member of her family. During my stay I met couples who have been returning year after year and who knew and where cared for by Mary and her husband Bill. Bill was so beloved that their reviews still mention him, as does Mary because there would be no Sand Hills for us to visit without him. Oh and I forgot to mention above ... If you eat only kale for breakfast .... stay home! For those of us who can remember actual bakeries and pressing our noses to the glass cases in wonderment, Mary's breakfast is like that childhood delight for those of us without baking mothers who had time to bake from scratch. If you never had to use a pay phone ... stay home. I would make my few calls from the lighthouse by climbing the stairs (Mary gives you free run of the tower if you are sure to turn the lights off) and opening the heavy brass door. The top of the lighthouse becomes a very elegant phone booth for those of us who remember what those are. The previous reviewer was absolutely correct and the Sand Hills is not for everyone. Mrs. Mary's lighthouse is only for those with souls open to the wonderment of the world she and Bill have created on the upper peninsula of Michigan. If you want a cookie cutter vinyl Hilton Hotel then that is where you belong. I've been to Europe twice and seen the wonders of the world. If you've stayed in actual homes in Europe you will love Mary's home. If you stayed at the Paris Hilton ... you will not .... I hope this helps anyone confused by the conflicting reviews of the place to which I can not wait to return. There's one more ... if you were taught not to end sentences in prepositions ... then go see Mary at the Sand Hills Lighthouse .... she will keep the light on for you!!!!

Parallel Universes

There must be, in fact, parallel universes or at least parallel Sand Hills Lighthouses. My wife and I commiserated over this review for 2 months and almost just skipped it thinking we must be the "odd man out" here. Still, after conversations with other guests while the hostess (Mary) was NOT in the room with us (VERY rare) I know that we are NOT the odd man out and may be one of the only reviews that is not seemingly paid for (based on our 3 day stay) (Note that some of the "recent" reviews - supposedly this year - refer to Bill as though they just saw him - that's Mary's husband who passed away last year - makes those reviews a bit suspect). At a B&B the stay and experience are, obviously, greatly effected by the host/hostess; sometimes more often than others. In the case of this place the hostess IS the B&B so it is important to at least have a clear unsolicited look at this before you book here. Mary is a hoot. She is a fairly spry and fairly alert 90 year old woman (educated guess made by our group of guests one evening) who tries VERY hard...too hard. As we have read other places, this is, in fact, all about Mary and that fact is very difficult to miss. The breakfast is not about you, it's about her and you are supposed to pick up on that and rave and rave and applaud. The piano concerto every night is about applause and not your enjoyment (great if you get that, and you can). So what about the "place" once you get by the hostess who is exhausting in our experience. The rooms are, in fact, filthy; they are, and that is a fact. The dust is THICK everywhere and the drapes haven't been vacuumed or cleaned in decades, the floors may be broom cleaned at best and the shower(s) are mildewed grout and not clean. Our mirror was filthy with water spots all over it that we easily cleaned ourselves. Yes, it is cluttered and some of the clutter is antique and interesting but, like Mary herself, it's just too much. Breakfast...someone wrote about 5 star? They've obviously never actually stayed in a 5 star and that line alone makes the review suspect. It's egg casserole and a LOT of starchy sweets and literal canned fruit with a "fresh" strawberry slice on top of the canned fruit cocktail. It's just sausage patties and biscuits (scones?). I will say that the danish puff thing was good but 5 star??? No, that's not what you're getting here. Is it good? Well it's not the way we eat, even on vacation so I'm going with no, but if you like those items then you will be thrilled. I'd skip it personally; though that will meet with some ire from the hostess and a lecture as though you are ten years old (we tried this). It is an interesting place to be sure and it's a bit like staying the night on a 60 year old movie set complete with the star of show still doing the movie? So everyone writes nice things in the book you must write in on the way out and we all did say we couldn't wait to come back, but we were all just being kind (at least most of us). Like all guests, we talked about the place and our hostess and we all agreed that the tiny elderly lady scurrying around was sweet and nostalgic, but was also almost sad as she runs around living in an out of time deteriorating castle with no touch with what's really happening. So go...it's interesting and if you are old enough you may recognize the old movie set. It's not a "bad" place, but it's nothing I would recommend to you or acquaintances without a LOT of fine print.

Rare Gem

We were at the Sand Hills Lighthouse Inn Ahmeek, Mi. in Sept. and found a Rare Gem . not a spit- shined spotless Inn but the most wonderful old lighthouse charm, fantastic view of Lake Superior, quiet peaceful setting where you can hear the wind and waves, and most of all a wonderful gracious hostess who went over the top to please her guests. Our hats off to “Merry” Mary. We will see you again and we are telling others about such an outstanding place. Thank You from the bottom of our hearts - David and Sharon Van Dis

A Unique Treasure on the Shore of Lake Superior

We enjoyed a 2 night stay at Sand Hills Lighthouse Inn September 8-9, 2017. The setting on the shores of Lake Superior was spectacular, and the view from the top of the lighthouse was amazing. But what really sets apart this inn is the charm and hospitality of "Lighthouse Keeper" Mary. In an intimate setting, she goes all out to welcome you and make your stay comfortable. You start your day with a gourmet breakfast buffet, and after watching the sun set into Lake Superior you can enjoy Mary's dessert, conversation with other guests and live piano music, if you so desire. We left refreshed and relaxed.

A National Treasure - Sand Hills Lighthouse Inn

The Keweenaw Peninsula is a spectacular area in it's own right. But Sand Hills Lighthouse Inn is truly a gem. Mary and Bill poured their souls into the renovation of this historic monument. It is a museum and a National Park all in one setting. Mary loves to tell of the history of her home and delights in the response of her guests. It is a wonderful escape from everyday life - no cell service, no Wi-Fi and no television. Only gourmet breakfasts and coffee, and in the evening, a decadent dessert, accompanied by Merry Mary on her beautiful piano. She enjoys telling stories of the past keepers, and, sometimes, past guests. If you are looking for a remote get-away with splendid sunrises and sunsets with the full glory of Lake Superior laid out in front of you, this is the place for you. If you want to explore the Keweenaw Peninsula in all its glory, this is your place. If you want to lay around all day and watch TV, go stay at a hotel. This is Mary's home, where you will be warmly welcomed, given reliable recommendations for restaurants and not-to-miss sights, and fed lavishly. This is one of the loveliest places, run by the most lovely lady you will ever meet. Our only regret is that we waited thirteen years to return. You will either get it, or you won't. We love you, Mary!

The Hoovers

Our first bed and breakfast experience was Sand Hills Lighthouse and we are now spoiled. Mary and Bill invited us into their home to enjoy the history and beauty of this unique place. The rooms are warm and display little pieces of history everywhere. Mary even makes sure the music box is set to play right on cue for each guest. Mary prepares hand made dessert each night for her guests to enjoy as she plays a very special piano. Home cooked breakfast was a treat and had more choices than one could eat in a sitting. And as far as romance, the grounds are timeless. There are many places to wander in solitude and enjoy the beauty of Lake Superior, from the beach to the tower. Staying at Sand Hills Lighthouse makes you a part of the light's history and Mary and Bill's family. We continue to visit every chance we get.

UP Lighthouse Get-away

My husband & I just returned from a 2 night stay at Sand Hill Lighthouse Inn! Our stay was wonderful! Mary is a terrific innkeeper! She is a fantastic cook...breakfasts & evening desserts were outstanding! Listening to Mary play the piano in the evening, as well as during breakfast was enchanting! The view from the tower was breathtaking! Thank you Mary for providing this opportunity to us...we felt like family! We will plan another stay in the near future ❤️

A Pleasant Visit

My friend and I were on our lighthouse vacation trip in June, 2017 in upper Michigan. We were hoping to get to climb the lighthouse but as we pulled down the lane, we saw "by appointment only". We called the number and Mary, the lighthouse keeper, asked us to give her 30 minutes as she just returned from the grocery! She brought us inside and gave us a tour of the rooms and the tower, including taking our picture as we stood outside the lantern room. Mary was so delightful!! So very full of energy and such a welcoming spirit! This is a beautiful inn and we so much enjoyed our time with Mary. She said she wished we could stay longer and visit with her for the evening. She and her husband have invested a lot of years in this magnificent structure and hearing her tell about this was heartwarming. Our only regret was that we could not book a room and stay here due to our schedule. However, we do plan to return and spend some nights at the inn and with Mary!

Breathtaking Views

One of my life's bucket list items was to spend the night in a lighthouse. My family surprised me with a two night stay at Sand Hills Lighthouse Inn. My sister-in-law niece and I were thrilled beyond words at the grounds, the accommodations and our host, Mary. The breakfast was equal to a 5 star resort with a private chef and the desserts in the evening were to die for. Her piano playing was so heartfelt and beautiful. The views from Lake Superior were breathtaking. Every guest other than ourselves had been there multiple times and vowed to visit again. After being a guest there I understand why. We are already planning a trip back with our husbands. Just delightful, peaceful and downright wonderful.

Always love coming back to this place. Such a friendly and personalized atmosphere. Even a music box in every room to lull you to sleep. The food and piano playing by Mary's magic hands is better than ever! So happy I was able to experience it again and again!

Can't wait until our next visit

My wife and I, together with a long time friend, have been guests at Sand Hills Lighthouse Inn B&B on six occasions. Each time we have left with fond new memories and pleasant anticipation of our next visit to come. To reiterate the words of other reviewers, the experience at Sand Hills is indeed unique. Mary’s scrumptious breakfasts alone would legitimize the word. And her nightly piano recitals (requests taken freely), paired with a delectable “desert of the evening,” provide the perfect ending to any day. “Merry Mary” is an inimitable personality. A bundle of energy who never slows down, is exceedingly accommodating and endowed with many talents.. A remote setting on the shores of Lake Superior, Sand Hills is the perfect getaway location With regard to those very few reviews of Sand Hills I have read that proffered a negative spin, all I can say is that ours is a world of great diversity, evoke the adage “different strokes for different folks,” and lament the loss for any who could not appreciate and enjoy the bountiful experience available to them.

Once Again A Wonderful Visit

We have stayed at Sand Hills six or seven times and always have had a marvelous, memorable stay. Entertainment is provided each evening by Mary at the antique grand piano while guests enjoy her home-made desserts. Breakfast is bountiful and scrumptious. We always feel at home at Sand Hills and certainly will return.

An Awesome B B Adventure

My wife and I,(and 15 other close friends and family), had a very unique stay at Sand Hills Lighthouse Inn!! This past June was our 35th anniversary. I was looking for something unique and different to help us celebrate the event. Having a love for lighthouses I found this one and called to make an inquiry. That was back in January 2016. Mary was quick to agree, with a little begging! She spent the next 5 months helping me plan a surprise 35th anniversary for my wife. Which, by the way, included a large number from our wedding party as well as their spouses. Mary was spectacular, she helped plan the event complete with a local florist, minister and a 5 star local restaurant as well. When we got there and saw the lighthouse with all of it's history and all the renovating Mary and Bill have done we were way beyond impressed. Then the awesome treats, breakfast's and even a dinner really topped the cake! Mary's piano playing and hospitality are second to none. We had a vow renewal out in front of the lighthouse that was also unforgettable. Needless to say I have found new friends in both Mary and Bill. You will not find a better B&B to visit and make your own memories. The only negative to be found from our stay was that we had to leave too soon! If you want a B&B experience without being pampered and catered to, well, stay at a hotel. But, if you are looking for the perfect B&B experience complete with an awesome atmosphere and an Inn keeper who will pamper you, this is the place. All I can say though, is, well, get in line because all from my group will be booking this Inn before you. Many thanks to Mary and Bill for a 35th anniversary surprise that none of us will ever forget and will forever cherish!!!! Dave & Monica Lawrence

Guest-centered, Romantic Inn: Experience Caring and Beauty

My husband and I recently spent two lovely days and nights at Sand Hills Lighthouse Inn. The history of the building is SO interesting and the décor is wonderful, The VERY best thing about the inn, however, are the innkeepers, Bill and Mary. From the time we arrived to the time we departed, we felt loved and cared for, and even at age 70, we felt spoiled! Mary is a wonderful cook and desserts and breakfasts were delicious and served beautifully. Mary plays the piano for about an hour each evening in the comfortable living room - we went to our bedrooms feeling joyful and calm. Tours are available through the inn and through another building on the property. Bill and Mary made suggestions for places to visit during the day, as they both know the area so well! We are home now (for about a week) and we are still basking in the glow of the friendliness and caring of these innkeepers and the beautiful inn they saved for people to see. I am SO thankful to Mary and Bill!.

Stunning Property - Home-Like-Atmosphere

I believe last week was about our 40th stay here. There is so much to do and see in the area, and the innkeepers here are passionate about their home so it all adds up to a lovely stay. The view from the tower is not to be missed and the grounds themselves are beautiful...grab one of the benches and sit awhile...rest, and listen to the waves and watch the sunset. We'll go back... One final note; might want to be sure to come to the breakfast table hungry!

Unforgettable

My partner and I were recently reviewing B&B experiences we've shared over our 24 years of traveling the world together and decided that our stay at Sand Hills fit the category of "strangest". The place is not clean, it's convenient to nothing, it offers few amenities to make a stay comfortable, and the kindest thing we can say about the proprietor, Mary, is that she is unique. If you stay here, you will not own your vacation, she will. You will have little privacy, you will be publicly reprimanded if you opt out of the nightly piano recital & dessert, and you will drop a hefty amount of cash for the privilege.

lighthouse inn tour

This review is only to cover a tour of the inn that my husband and I took. We were greeted by Mary who took us in to the living room. We noted the delicious aroma of the dessert that she was baking for the guests that evening. She explained the whole process of them obtaining the property to ALL of the renovations that were done. Hard to believe what it must have looked like when they bought it! Then we visited each room, one more extravagant then the other. Finally, we climbed into the tower to see the magnificent view of Lake Superior. It,luckily, was a beautiful day and a beautiful scene. The instant we got up to the outside of the tower, Mary took several pictures of my husband and myself. Finally, when we returned downstairs again, Mary played us a piece on the grand piano in the living room. It was a wonderful experience that all should see someday. Take the tour or spend the night; your experience will be unforgettable!

Not your average B&B

We have stayed at many B&B's during our 31 years of marriage but none compare to the uniqueness of this property! I read about Sand Hills several years ago but we finally got there this year and were enthralled with the location, history and serenity of our stay. The vision that Bill and Mary had brought the lighthouse back from the brink of destruction and the attention to every detail is truly remarkable. We were awed by their experiences, Mary's wonderful piano playing AND the guests we met there. We were fortunate enough to be there at the same time as Don, the 91 year-old gentleman who was stationed at the lighthouse during his Coast Guard bootcamp days and returns every year. History come alive and an experience that will not be for us once-in-a-lifetime! We will be back!!! ;-)

A gem to be appreciated

Sand Hills Lighthouse is a lot more than what meets the eyes. The inn owners Bill and Mary are warm and sincere, they really go out of their way to make your stay memorable. Your eyes will be delighted by the scenary, your taste buds will marvel at Mary's tasty desserts and homemade breakfast, your ears will appreciate the waves crashing against the rocks, and your nose will enjoy the fresh lake air. Make time to talk to Bill and Mary, their stories are not to be missed.

A Wonderful Experience

This place is amazing, largely in part to the warmth and kind hearted owners, Bill & Mary. Piano playing, antiques, artwork and delicious food will have leave you wondering why you didn't stay here sooner. The grounds and view are like nothing I have experienced - A M A Z I N G!!!!

Quiet and Romantic

To know the "Sand Hills Lighthouse" is to love it! Bill & Mary are an inspiration showing passion toward their guests and the Inn. Mary is the most energetic host ever, making sure everyone is comfortable and familiar with all the historic lighthouse has to offer. We plan to return again and again for more enchanted moments.
