We were on a tour with Martha's Vineyard Private Tours & Excursions. Our driver Jim got us a great vantage point for the photo, which is a bit of a chore since the light is on private property.

This charming lighthouse is the only one on the Vineyard manned by a lighthouse keeper who lives on the property. It's a short driver from Vineyard Haven and worth the trip. Just beautiful.

Cute lighthouse to add to your list to visit while in New England. Quaint, but nothing exciting. We parked the car and were done viewing in 10 minutes.

A great view from the lighthouse if it is open. The lighthouse is attached to the keeper's house. It is a charming private residence. We were lucky enough to be invited around for dinner. Not everyone is so lucky. If you stop by, I am sure you will get a peek. Even if no one is home, the view from... More

Lighthouses are great to see and photograph, except this one you can only do that from the road as it's closed to the public. It doesn't take away from its beauty, just from the overall experience.

Not much to be said for this lighthouse. Pretty boring. You can't go inside or anything. Good for a couple extra pictures, that's about it.

This is a pretty lighthouse, very close to UPPER Main Street in Vineyard Haven in a very nice residential area. Needless to say, the views are magnificent and the lighthouse with its adjacent lightkeeper's house is just lovely.
