“Great light house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Nobska is located on a high point overlooking Nantucket Sound on a beautiful drive between Woods Hole and Falmouth. It is a great place for pics of the sound and the lighthouse. The view is spectacular. Not to be missed if you are in the area.

“Always wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Lighthouses are wonderful and this is no exception. I went some years ago, but would go again in a second. Great views and lovely old lighthouse.

“Classic Lighthouse Overlooking Martha's Vineyard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Idyllic waterfront setting for a lighthouse. Exactly what you envision a lighthouse to look like. High on a hill overlooking MV. Park your vehicle and wander around. Great picture taking site.

“Nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We walked from our inn over to the lighthouse. The day was beautiful for November. Warm, sunny. It was a nice walk, by the beach, up to the lighthouse and you can look over on the ocean!

“First Cape Lighthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We went when it was dark out, and this was our first cape cod lighthouse. We loved it! It was so beautiful and there is a grassy area that is fenced off so our 2 year olds ran around for about an hour! My husband and I loved learning about the history and the beautiful view was worth the drive!
