From Highway 132, take Perron Blvd. to the Centre. Ample parking available. The lighthouse is located at the opposite end of the site from the reception building – a distance of about 1.5 miles. Visitors can stop at various heritage buildings by walking along a well-marked road or a path in the woods, or cover the distance by taking a horse-drawn cart that leaves the reception building every hour and ends its run at the tea house (a few hundred feet from the lighthouse), returning about 15 minutes later.
