We enjoyed coming to see it - the first of several lighthouses that we would see on our self-guided tour of New England. It was very atmospheric and surrounded by nice views of the coastline. Only needed 10-15 minutes.

Historic Lighthouses dot the NorthEast coast and this is one of the great ones. We were here during a beautiful foggy morning lending beauty to this historic spot.

Amazing views of the water, refreshing sea breeze, and a beautiful light house just a ferry ride away from Martha's Vineyard. Awesome way to finish an afternoon.

We missed the first cut off road to the lighthouse but found the other side of the loop to get down to the lighthouse. It was after season so everything was closed but we snapped photos from the outside and read the plaque. Nothing bad,...More

A delightful lighthouse to view from the water and from down the road a bit. You will have to be real fortunate to get a parking spot up close as only about 1/2 dozen parking spots are available. We parked on the road and snapped...More
