A very pleasant and interesting surprise
Aug 2021
What I thought would be a quick photo stop ended up being a Wildwood highlight. The gardens are beautiful and the signage inside is very interesting. Be sure to make the easy climb to the top for a great view of the gardens and the waterway.

Absolutely gorgeous
Jul 2021 • Family
Hereford inlet lighthouse is absolutely stunning! The harden and all of the flowers are just gorgeous. The path leading up to the path by the water has a railing, and notches on the incline to have grip on your feet, and there are boats at the top with cutouts on the back for easy access to get inside for a fun photo op! You can walk pretty much the length of the water on the cement walkway. It’s very beautiful and relaxing. I enjoyed our visit and will be coming again! A definite stop if you’re on vacation or a local!

Gardens!

We stopped on a rainy day, stood under the pavillion and loved seeing the beautiful gardens! They are stunning.

Beautiful Garden!
Jun 2021
My friends and I came for the history, and stayed for the garden! There is also a beach walk around there that is also beautiful, so take time to do that too. You do not need a lot of time in the lighthouse itself.

no longer worth the time to visit
May 2021
the structure itself is as lovely as ever, however the gardens are just a mere shadow of their former beauty. The stunning, award winning plantings in the cottage garden style that complimented the architecture of the lighthouse so perfectly have been replaced with unimaginative, ordinary bedding plants.
Breaks my heart to see all the beautiful work Steve Murray and his friends put into the garden destroyed.
No more Maritime Festival....the N.J. Lighthouse Society dropped the site in the annual Lighthouse Challenge!
Way to go Mayor Rosenello!

Ok visit

Ordinary garden. Colorful with some non exceptional planting. Quite good for the shore, but not elsewhere. For those easily impressed by a splash of color. Too much noise from the surrounding condos

Beautiful Lighthouse
Jun 2020
Found this little gem a couple of years ago while taking an early morning walk while in North Wildwood. I haven't been inside yet, but the grounds are just beautiful. I make sure I walk to at least this point every visit.

Stunningly Beautiful Lighthouse
Feb 2020 • Couples
Gorgeous Victorian house with a Lighthouse on top. Check for hours. Very close to beach. Unique style but worth the trip for lighthouse lovers.

More than just a Lighthouse!
Jan 2020
Unfortunately, their website said it would be open daily during the winter months but we found that to be untrue. Being that it is a Lighthouse you can still appreciate it form the outside, the gardens are dormant and still are maintained and beautiful ~ walking through the back leads you right to the beach!
there is a small parking lot right on the side of the lighthouse and borders the police station.

Beautiful light house and garden
Oct 2019
A must do while in North Wildwood, New Jersey. It was a short drive from our hotel at Esplanade suites. The lighthouse is opened to public. As you explore the house so much history is seen by photos of the families who lived there with the keepers. Beautiful garden on the grounds and behind the garden leads to the seawall area which was so surprise. The woman at the lighthouse was so pleasant and knowledgeable. Definitely would recommend a visit.
