  • Easy walk up and not crowded when we were there late in the afternoon — wonderful views of course. Little gift shop at the house was nice

  • The view from the lighthouse is really spectacular and you can see for miles. Easy walk from parking lot. The museum was closed. Very picturesque.

  • It's a fairly short walk, .25 mi, from the parking lot to the lighthouse. But be warned, there are quite a few stairs to climb if you want to get up close to the lighthouse. You can view it without climbing the stairs though. There is a small museum and gift shop that was open when we visited on a Thursday afternoon. Expansive views of the bay await you from the grounds surrounding the lighthouse and from the small beach that can be reached by taking the left fork in the path.
  • Absolutely stunning. I was in shock at the beauty of this place and the views it offers. Be prepared to walk a little bit to get the lighthouse, but it is totally worth it. It's not far from where you park. There is so much to explore and many opportunities for really good photos. My husband and I found a little beach area and enjoyed the peace and beauty. There is a grassy area and a few benches to sit on as well. This is worth the time out of your day to visit.
