From a lakeside corner of the two-story frame house, the square, wood tower rises just eight feet above the roof line before supporting a square walkway that provides a wide border around the narrow, octagonal lantern room.  Attached to the back of the house is a one-story addition with its own chimney protruding from a dark red roof matching that of the main building. An even-smaller room off the end of the addition completes the long house. Tall cedars shade one side of the building, and down to the shore are thick bushes mixed with a few tall birch and cedar.  The inside of the lighthouse has been converted into a museum with replica furnishings in each room giving an authentic 19th-century feel to the lightstation.
