The lighthouse, along with the keepers cottage and out-buildings are on a small island just off shore. Sohier Park at the tip of the "Nubble" peninsula is where to view the lighthouse. When you drive in to the park from the street it looks like it is at the end of the parking lot. There is plenty parking, restrooms and... More

I love lighthouses and a visit here would explain why. Picturesque, Photogenic, Peaceful, Meditative. The cable car is gone and missed but that doesn't detract from the experience. The park is clean and well cared for. Parking is dirt but fine. Stop spend some time and enjoy. The small gift shop is worth a visit too.

I love south Maine and York in particular. Though the light house is the only attraction here, you can easily spend a decent amount of time on oceanfront here even when there is no beach. Local ice cream shops around this location are awesome. Great spot for pictures.

The light house is located in York, very close to Ogunquit. It is a beautiful place to take pictures - there was a wedding photo session the day I was there.

We were on our way to Bar Harbor, ME and decided to stop to see our first lighthouse. This isn't hard to find, but on a busy weekend parking is definitely at a premium. We did have to circle multiple times, but we finally landed a spot. It was nice to stretch our legs and get a beautiful view of... More

The views say it all! Restaurant and ice cream shop close by after photographing this beautiful light house. I brought my son on this trip and for a 12 yr old not that interested in lighthouses he is now open to landscape and photography. Can't wait to take him to explore more lighthouses!

Tucked away at the end of the road in an island is the Nubble Lighthouse. A quintessential piece of Maine History. There are several vantage points for the photographer with ares for the kids to scramble on the rocks. Like be the drive through the houses to get there.

This could be a drive by, but it is beautiful to see. Too much walking for an old lady, but beautiful to see.

What we love about Nubble is it is so close to shore. It is so peaceful during the winter months and I never tire of going. Because of the rocky edges, I recommend young children be in strollers.

Beautiful view of an old, but still working light house. Easy to drive to, gift shop, restrooms, and even a nice restaurant near by.
