If you’re looking for a lighthouse with a short and easy hike, Owl’s head makes a perfect (and kid-friendly, pet-friendly) outing. There is a half mile loop that leads you right to the iconic lighthouse along the beautiful coast! It’s an excellent way to see Penobscot Bay and take in amazing, expansive views of the ocean.
There is also a visitors’ center and gift shop where you can learn about and see a map of all the Maine lighthouses (there are 66 in total)! It’s well worth the visit, especially on a clear, sunny day. After visiting, make sure to look at the map of lighthouses in our Captain’s House – if you’re lucky, you might be able to stay in Room #27, inspired by the Owl’s Head lighthouse.
