This is rated Trip Advisor number one location - a MUST see. There could have been some information somewhere or online to say that it was currently (and for some obvious time) surrounded by scaffolds and netting. A wasted trip.

We always love to visit this location when we are in the area. Didn’t know the lighthouse was encased in scaffolding. Wasn’t like the normal beauty we are used to seeing. Maybe it will be nicer when they are finished with the remodel or whatever...More

As others have commented, it is under renovation at this time. It still was an okay view of the Captain's house adjacent. From here head to Fox's Lobster house. Great food.

Always make the trek to the lighthouse and was surprised to find lots of scaffolding there. However, that is a good thing so that when we get to see the results next year we can be impressed all over again. The views are is magnificent.

Could not see lighthouse because it was under construction and covered with construction netting. Seascapes were beautiful but viewing the lighthouse was a disappointment.

My husband and I visited here on a blustery day in September. There is plenty of parking and a lot of space to sit and watch the waves and take in the smell of salty air. Because of the wind, the waves were huge and...More

Wish we knew this before driving here- especially on a 53 degree windy day. Lighthouse is under construction/renovation. I wouldn't recommend going here during a vacation or long weekend right now.

You can't go inside the lighthouse. There is a really nice visitor center. Buses are Welcome. Large amount of restrooms modern. Outside area great place to take Pictures. Wear sturdy shoes on the the rocks around the area. Restaurant nearby.

Yes, the scaffolding is still up but it only covers a portion of the site. It’s still worth visiting, but if you like taking lighthouse pictures more artistic than snapshots, then it may not be the best time to visit.
