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!

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!

This lighthouse is a private residence. We were in town so we drove up the road to get a few photos. You can take photos from the street but can not visit. Gay Head lighthouse is across the island but worth the beautiful drive to...More

We pulled up and took a couple of photos but there are two residences here for the Coast Guard and you are not able to walk out on the lawn to view. But you get a good look from the street or on the ferry...More

Not sure what the last few reviewers were seeing; there is not ONE "no parking sign" in front. You can most certainly park your car & get a picture from the street side of the picket fence and there are many different angles to capture...More
