You can't get into or even close to the light house. Someone lives here and it's guarded like the private residence that it is. Very understandable. But you can see it from the road and it's charming and nearby there's a bay with great casual...More

Although the weather was rainy and cold, we enjoyed our visit to the Cape Elizabeth Lighthouse. Beautiful rocky beach and ocean views. Very nice place for a visit.

This was the first lighthouse we visited while in Maine. Although you cannot visit it since it’s a private residence, we thought it was beautiful and well worth stopping by. We enjoyed climbing around on the petrified rocks and the picturesque views.

This is such a pretty light house but unfortunately you really can’t visit it. It’s a private home at the end of a drive that is marked “no lighthouse access.” I’m sure the owner and neighbors are tired of tourists driving down the street to...More

0 Votes No the lighthouse is closed. You cannot go in. However it is a beautiful area. Great for a picnic or just to spread a blanket & relax
