High atop a cliff jutting into the clear, deep waters of Lake Superior, the Big Bay Point Lighthouse beckons adults in search of a secluded retreat from modern life. This unique Michigan bed-and-breakfast inn is one of the few surviving resident lighthouses in the country and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For over a century, mariners have relied on Big Bay Point's light to guide them along this remote and rocky stretch of Michigan coastline. Although automated in 1941, the romance and lore of the site are undimmed. Sit before the fire in the living room, and recount the lighthouses you have seen and plan to see. Hike, bike, ski, or snowshoe along the shore, or on the many trails in the area. Experience the deep solitude and unspoiled beauty of nature at the Big Bay Point Lighthouse Bed & Breakfast.

Welcome! We invite you to visit our bed and breakfast inn in beautiful Marshall, Michigan, and enjoy every aspect of our "home" with its heritage and tradition that has welcomed guests for 170 years.

It has been designated as a State Historical site and is also listed on the National Register of Historical Places. The Inn was built in 1835 by Colonel Andrew Mann who used lumber from the Ketchum sawmill and bricks that were molded and fired on the site to construct what has endured as the oldest brick building in Calhoun County. It is believed to have been a stop on the Underground Railroad. Come to our Marshall, Michagan bed and breakfast and see why those who stay once return again and again.
HistoricStay.com Has Launched!
HistoricStay.com is a human-curated, invitation only
presentation of select historic lodging accommodations,
including bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges worldwide.
Historic lodging facilities (Stays) are demonstrably
significant to world history with respect to their architecture,
engineering, archeology or culture, as well as their location,
design, materials, workmanship, feeling or association.
Historic bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges offer
travelers a truly unique and memorable lodging experience.
They provide visitors a genuine opportunity to
connect with the past, while enjoying restful lodging,
excellent cuisine, gracious hospitality and more.
Sadly, countless historically significant structures
have been (and continue to be) lost forever.
Many of those that endure, do so largely because of the
vision, passion and dedication of devoted and enterprising
proprietors, companies and others, who (usually after great effort
and expense) offer them as living, interactive lodging facilities
reflecting the rich historical fabric within which they are woven.
