    Gorgeous spot
    We loved the view and the spot was amazing. Access is to be noted because it’s a half mile hike up hill and half mile back down. The trail is well maintained but not for those who can’t manage the uphill walk. No accommodations for handicapped. I made it up to the house/B&B. But needed to stop there. It was well worth the walk and the view was amazing due to the fact that we had gorgeous weather that day.

    Wonderful views from this lighthouse
    This lighthouse was on my list of lights to visit for about 20 years. So glad I finally got to see it. The views from behind the lighthouse were spectacular. The climb up wasn’t too strenuous for this senior citizen and it’s worth going up behind the light to see it from that perspective. Great lighthouse to visit.

    Pretty views!
    The lighthouse was very pretty and there were good views all around! We parked by a beach in a lot that was $5 and Hiked the trail up to the lighthouse. There are a lot of resting areas and picnic tables and a gift shop halfway up. When staffed, you can go in the bottom of the lighthouse. It's a very small area but you can see the spiral stairs and learn some information.

    Nicest lighthouse in oregon
    I was told this is the most photographed lighthouse in the world. I would say in Oregon 4 sure. The hike to the top of hill is very scenic especially the views of the beach below. Make sure you go all the way to the top, here you can see the top of the lighthouse. I would definitely spend time at the beach after. Note: you can only visit the 1st floor but you can go in the care takers house. I didn't have the time

Beautiful lighthouse with magnificent views of the ocean and beach. Great gift shop, the old generator room. I bought several items for myself and as gifts. It was a shame that the volunteer ranger did not show up that day, so we could not visit the interior of the lighthouse or hear about its history.

The lightkeeper’s cottage is so quaint and it’s now a B&B. It would be an awesome place to stay.

Definitely a must see when you are traveling up or the down the West coast via the 101.

Stunning. We enjoyed the whole area -- a beautiful bridge, a wonderful sweep of beach, incredible caves on the beach, the lighthouse on a cliff. And the light is so bright.

The sound of the ocean and birds is very peaceful.

The many blackberries along the walk were delicious.

The trail above the lighthouse provides a lovely view.

Beach to enjoy during low tide, quick little hike up to the light house and a gift shop. There are bathrooms at the parking lot. $5 to park.

Amazing and surreal! You only have to pay $5 parking. The trail leading to the lighthouse is at the end of the parking lot and is not challenging at all, and is totally worth the small hike. The view is amazing. If you're up for it you can give the 'hobbit's' trail a go, which is more challenging but even more breathtaking. Definite bucket list site!

You have to pay for your stay when you book and if you need to cancel you do not get a refund so make sure nothing goes wrong in your life 🤦🏼‍♀️
