  • Nothing to see here folks. The reviews below are not about this lighthouse. The best you can do is see the top half barely visible above a house on a private street. No access​. Go to the nearby Portland Head Lighthouse.
  • Seen pictures of this place online and knew I wanted to visit, planned the trip and when I arrived, truly was not disappointed the beauty of this magnificent cape was amazing, I could set on the rocks for hours watching the waves crash into to shore, unbelievably tranquil and serene spot, loved it and will return in the future!!!
  • The lighthouse was not as much fun as i had thought but the park is big and nice if you are planning for some outdoor fun.
  • The Cape Elizabeth Light (formerly, Two Lights Lighthouse East Tower) is visible from the parking lot at the end of Two Lights Rd. You can also see the East Tower from the end of 2 Lights Terrace. Turn around to get of view of the West Tower, then drive over to Beacon Lane... the decommissioned lighthouse is right next to the street. It's easy to view (and photograph) both towers from this location. The unfortunate thing is wealthy folks have built too many large homes here. It would have been nice to be able to experience the area the same way Edward Hopper did when he painted "The Lighthouse at Two Lights" in 1929. Avoid paying to get into Two Lights State Park (glad I did) if your goal is to see the lighthouses. They aren't there. The park is poorly named, and the name should be changed, but I'm sure they're wanting to make money off unsuspecting tourists. That's too bad, but it doesn't detract from the great views of both lighthouses (especially if you avoid the park!). I feel bad for tourists who didn't make it to see the lighthouses because they were confused by the name of the park. Clearly, from some of the ratings/comments below, there people who did get duped by the park's name.
  • Beautiful lighthouse but parking is not good! I enjoyed Portland light house more!
