Cape Elizabeth Light (also known as Two Lights) is a lighthouse in Cape Elizabeth, at the southwestern entrance to Casco Bay in Maine.

Only the eastern tower of the two that made up the light station until 1924 is active. The western tower is deactivated, but it is still standing and is privately owned.

The facility is adjacent to Two Lights State Park, a 41-acre (17 ha) state facility which allows a view of, but not access to, the grounds of the lighthouse. Until recently, the light used a second-order Fresnel lens.

Cape Elizabeth Light, designed in the Gothic Revival style, was added to the National Register of Historic Places as Two Lights on December 27, 1974.

  • If you know about the The lighthouse at two lights painting at the Met in NYC, you should definitely check this place out! This off the beaten track place is beautiful and only half of an hour from the city of Portland. The scenery is gorgeous that could take anyone’s breath away. I highly recommend anyone to visit this place.
  • Stunning! This is one of the most beautiful and charming places to walk back to simpler days and feel the stress of our busy lives melt away. There is nothing like imagining a life in that house to take one back to simpler and more serene times. To wake up and see a sunrise here or sit on the patio or front lawn and watch it go down would be the ultimate!
