The grounds are closed off to the public as is the lighthouse. There is no parking. The keeper's house is privately owned and the owners make it very clear they don't want ANYBODY even going near their property. Avoid.

Beautiful area. Be sure to eat at the Lobster Shack. You won't be disappointed. The whole area is very beautiful and scenic.

Nothing to see here folks. The best you can do is see the top half barely visible above a house on a private street. No access​. Go to the nearby Portland Head Lighthouse.

Not much parking, and you can't get close to the lighthouse without trespassing on private residential property. Stopping on the dead end street for a quick photo is ok, but walking around seems to make the residents nervous. Apparently an arson incident has made the...More
