We have visited lighthouses all over the country and this one has to be in one of the most picturesque settings we have seen. The views of it from the bluffs across from Heceta Head are beautiful, as are the views from the lighthouse itself.

Touring the interior of the lightkeepers residence is not only enjoyable but thoroughbly educational. How they live. The 'Resident Ghost' and other little known bits of lighthouse keepers. Great view from the tower.

The tour definitely sets the experience apart. There is one for the old lighthouse keeper home and one for the light house itself.

Iconic, beautiful, the type of a scene that usually is only seen in photos or imagined paintings. Nothing in the world is as beautiful as the Oregon coastline.

Was lucky enough to win an overnight stay at the Heceta Head Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast in a silent auction and it was an experience I will never forget. The Lightkeepers House is a historical gem. Your choice of rooms include views of the ocean or the lighthouse itself. The multi course breakfast is a complete treat. Would not hesitate... More

I enjoyed delicious a seven-course breakfast here and toured the three bedrooms. We were not able to climb to the top of the lighthouse, unfortunately, but the setting is breathtaking. If you want a special couple event, I can't imagine a better place for it than the Heceta Head Lighthouse B&B. :o)

Can get crowded in the summer. Best time to visit is the shoulder season--especially in the fall months.

It's a 1/2 mile trek to the lighthouse from the parking lot but just a gentle slope and nicely shaded. Access the outbuildings and lighthouse. Toura ever hr. of so. Nice location.

We walked 1/2 mile from the parking to the lighthouse, and a bit further up the hillside on a trail that offers a view of the lighthouse, level with the light. It was a rainy, windy day, nearing sundown, with amazing, ethereal lighting that made the grass and other greenery glow as if fluorescent, the roar of the waves crashing... More

The day I visited, the light house was not open for tours, but I could tell just walking up to it, and around it, and reading the information displays that this is a great place to visit. The beach is very nice, with picnic tables and a set of toilets. The bridge is very pretty, and there is a green... More
