“Most beautiful spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

This location never fails to inspire me. It's lovely and has great history. B&B is very nice, if spendy.

“Famous Oregon Lighthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

One of the most photographed light houses on the west coast.
Best shot is from the pull out south of the light house looking back across the bay! Keepers Cottage is also a B&B with gormet 7 course breakfast! Nice beach and hike to the light house.

“Watch whales passing by”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

Not too steep walk up to lighthouse. Guides are there once you have rested a bit. During right season, you can watch whales passing by. Unique stuff in the gift shop cottage.
