Its very easy to get a look at the "Lighthouse right from the Habor parking lot. Pretty cool looking. Would be nice to be able to catch the inside sometime at one of the events.

We have been taking pictures of all the lighthouses along the Oregon Coast and have to say, Pelican Bay is truly unique. It is also a private home, like Cleft in the Rock near Yachats, and not open to the public most of the time. The building sits on a high bluff, overlooking Boat Basin Drive in Harbor (as in... More

I liked the fact that it was privately owned, that is so cool! The history was neat, as Bill Cady grew up in Lighthouses so his desire was to build this one. It is the newest Lighthouse on the West Coast.

The views of this lighthouse are okay, but not as spectacular as other lighthouses along the coast (especially Haceta Head lighthouse just north of Florence).

Wish we had paid more attention to the description. It is actually someone's home. They do open it up on occasion, but unless it is open for an event, you can only view it from afar. Get a local paper to find out when they are having an event. Would have rated it higher had it been an actual attraction.

We enjoy the old Pelican Bay Light house, never been before. the best part is being able to see far out to see the boats and meeting people who care for the Light House. We will won't to stop again when we pass through Crescent City, CA
