There is no public access, you can only drive-by. It offers great views of Vineyard Sound. Has been occupied year round until recently as lead paint was found in the ground surrounding the lighthouse and residence. In a very upper scale neighborhood.

Getting there takes you through some beautiful neighborhoods. Not a lot to see, but worth it. Cannot get onto the property.

Just one of many picturesque stops along the trail. One of 5 light houses on MV. You can see it from the ferry coming in and leaving. It is also close to town (Vin Haven).

WE stopped to look at the light house just as a ferry was going by. So scenic but not able to go into the light house. A picture worth painting.

Certainly not our favorite but it's always fun to visit any lighthouse. Best to view from the ferry actually. We took a little different angle with our photo below. It doesn't have too many utility lines or cars.

Great view but you can’t go up to it as it is on private property. We just pulled over snapped a few pics and kept it moving.

It has a breathtaking view, BUT couldn't get too close because it is on private land. Be careful not to miss it as you are driving along, it's right behind the residence with a U.S. Government sign right in front of it!

Light #2 on our trip around the island. This was a very cute one. The only reason I gave 4 was because you can't get near the Light. It is a private residence, with no trespassing signs. But, the view you can get from the...More

This West Chop lighthouse and grounds is the perfect place to go inner spiritual with one self. The view of the ocean and the many boats sailing to and fro is just breath taking too.

Worth making a pilgrimage to this lighthouse perched on the north side of the island. Peaceful feel and lovely view. VIsit all of Martha Vineyard's lighthouses - each one has a different and special character!
