Each year when we go to North Rustico, when I see the lighthouse, I feel relaxed knowing our vacation has begun....last year I even bought a large framed print of the NR harbour with the lighthouse in it and it hangs in my livingroom.

We chanced upon this tucked away little lighthouse when we went to view the house nearby that spins 360 degrees. The house was curiosity peaking, and this lighthouse was a sweet little delight to hang out around. The view off the cliff is pretty. I wished I had brought a picnic to enjoy there as there was no one else... More

I got to see this beauty while vacationing with the NJLHS. It was in pretty good condition. If you like lighthouses this won't be a disappointment.

We saw a lot of lighthouses this one was unique. Nice inlet you could walk out into the boards and see the channel the boats must navigate to get out of the inlet . They have to beat breaking waves to get out. I'm a fisherman and can appreciate the gamut they run each time they want to fish .... More

We liked this little Lighthouse. There is nothing there, but the Lighthouse...but we had a good time taking pictures of it to add to our collection. It's right at the end of the road in North Rustico, basically on someone's property.

Some of the nearby buildings are more shabby than characterful otherwise I would give 5star. Access is easy from the town and there are great beaches and restaurants nearby

The lighthouse in North Rustico is a nice place to visit and had a great little gift shop in the main floor. The area around the lighthouse has some lovely views and be sure to head out to the back deck to get a picture of a million dollar view. At low tide you can drive in to the beach... More

It's a great photo op--not just the lighthouse, but the structures around it. We drove all the way to the point, parked on the sand, and then walked along the waterfront road to the breakwater. Then had lunch at the Blue Mussel. All in all, a lot of fun.
