I love the chance to connect in so many ways. History, nature, weather, photos. It was foggy on our visit, it added to the sense of purpose to the lighthouse. It was great lighting for typical Maine photos. There is a $3 fee to enter...More

This was a highlight of our trip! Loved the rocky coastline! We were able to photograph the reflection of the lighthouse in the small pool. Enoyed going up in the lighthouse and the history in the keepers house. What a beautiful spot!

We visited six lighthouses in this trip, but we like this one the most. A beautiful lighthouse with amazing rock layer, and you can go up to the top too.

I've heard this was the most photographed lighthouse in Maine, I'm not sure about that. However, you can tour the house and the lamp during operating hours. Good pictures from north or south, with the awesome rock formations. Nice little old hotel near I recommend....More

Since we were "tourists", I am not aware of a season. I believe the lighthouse to be open all year around. Of course, some winter storms may cause a temporary closure. Hours are "day light" hours.
