When someone tells you that something is a must-see and in many calendars, you would think that visiting the site in person would blow you away. Well, this was the exact opposite. While it was nice to see it from a distance, a private residence...More

Historical, brings back a lot of childhood memories for me, and just a nice place to get out and enjoy on a rare hot sunny day in Maine along the coast. Beautiful scenery, love the smell of the ocean rolling in off the ocean, and...More

Came here years ago via a cruise, but this was much better because there was no time crunch. The lighthouse itself is beautiful, but the grounds, including the cliff walk, are very beautiful and relaxing. There is a small gift shop on site, and a...More
