Nubble Lighthouse reviews
A historic lighthouse on the rocky Maine coast. If you are in the area, it is worth a trip. The lighthouse is on an island, just off shore, so you cannot get there. more »
We visited this lighthouse on our first day in Maine and it was absolutely gorgeous. There was free parking available for visitors and it wasn't overly crowded compared to some of the other... more »
Beautiful lighthouse. One of the most popular throughout New England. Plenty of parking if you get there early during peak season, which is also free. The Nubble is on an island, so therefore is not accessible. However the photos from the rocks are great to even spectacular if you take your time to find the right spot.
Absolutely beautiful & well kept lighthouse. Lovely & reasonable priced gift shop. We were fortunate to be able to purchase a watercolor of the lighthouse for only $10, the artist was there raising money for the lighthouse and personalized the little skiff with whatever name you wished. Great day. Oh, we were so lucky there was hundreds of small butterflies on a beautiful bush of Daisies.
