“Nice stop along the way...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We stopped by the Nobble Lighthouse in York on the way to Kennebunkport, ME. What a beautiful lighthouse on a secluded little wedge of land. The winds were kicking in while we looked around and it made for for great water shows on the rocks under the lighthouse. We had. A guide that knew the history of the lighthouse and the people that tended the house. This was a great little stop along the way and worth the time.

Perfect view of a New England light house. Nice area to relax, fish, walk around with a little restaurant and gift shop located on the premises.

“Gorgeous photo opportunity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

What a gorgeous picture this made, but what a sad little town. It seems that the entire town was built in a Jersey-shore/budget carnival style around this main attraction, and now it's desolate. It was a very depressing drive to the site, only stopped for a few minutes, but the view and the pictures we snapped are incredible.

“can't beat this view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Glad we brought a small tripod so we could take pictures with us in them! The views are gorgeous, the grounds well kept and clean. We climbred around on the rocks and enjoyed ourselves. You don't tour the actual lighthouse since its on a separate island.
