Bass Harbor Head Light

X

Built in 1858, the Bass Harbor Head is one of the most frequently photographed Maine lights. It sits atop a rugged, pink rock cliff surrounded by dark evergreens. Located on the southern end of Mt. Desert Island, it's a cylindrical tower attached to the keeper's house by a short, enclosed passageway. You can visit the grounds year-round—but a Coast Guard family lives in the keeper's house and asks that their privacy be respected. You can view the light from the end of Lighthouse Road in Bass Harbor or by cruise or plane.
