CRISP POINT LIGHTHOUSE EARNS 2017 TRIPADVISOR CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE

NEWBERRY, MI – July 4, 2017   Crisp Point Light Historical Society today announced that it has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence. Now in its seventh year, the achievement celebrates hospitality businesses that have earned great traveler reviews on TripAdvisor over the past year. Certificate of Excellence recipients include restaurants, accommodations and attractions located all over the world that have continually delivered a quality customer experience.

“This is now our third year in a row receiving the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.  The Crisp Point Light Historical Society Board of Directors cannot thank our volunteers enough for all of their hard work and dedication to Crisp Point Lighthouse and her visitors.  Through the many donations, memberships, and the Michigan Lighthouse Assistance grant that we received last year we have been able to make some huge strides in progress in the tower restoration.  This year will be another big year for the lighthouse as we are planning on adding more stone for erosion control, an interior tower restoration, as well as boardwalk improvements that were already completed earlier this year.  We would like to thank everyone who helped make all this work possible,” said Cameron Lovett, Board Member of CPLHS.

“TripAdvisor is excited to announce the recipients of the 2017 Certificate of Excellence, which celebrates hospitality businesses that have consistently received strong praise and ratings from travelers,” said Heather Leisman, Vice President of Industry Marketing, TripAdvisor. “This recognition allows us to publicly honor businesses that are actively engaging with customers and using feedback to help travelers identify and confidently book the perfect trip.”
