Had a wonderfu time very surprized at what i saw was expecting the tower only a big thanl you to all involved in bring crisp point lighthouse back
A beautiful lighthouse located in a remote place. The drive was a challenge but we'll worth the effort. The hosts were wonderful, they pointed out the tracks of the moose that just left.
We went there in the summer of 2015. The drive is 17 miles long to get back to the lighthouse, and is mostly a very bumpy dirt road. It winds through a beautiful thick forest, and is worth the drive. It took us approximately an hour to get back to the lighthouse from a main road, even though it is only 17 miles. It was also an hour to return to the main road from the lighthouse.
It was a cold November late fall drive my son and I went together and we had such a good time, getting there was half the fun the road has about 8,000 pot holes and 21 miles long, we never seen another soul until we got to crisp Point Lighthouse and the caretaker was just getting in the car and leaving so we wandered around the lighthouse and took photographs and started a fire in the pit they had available and we had a late lunch, some whiskey and a little smoke, that is a lifetime memory my son and I will cherish for all time.
Tough to get to and remote....and worth the drive! Beautiful and isolated.
