Visiting Maine Lighthouses – Cape Elizabeth (Two Lights)

May 14th, 2013 by Scott Gile

Cape Elizabeth Lighthouse (Two Lights)

Not nearly as well-known as its nearby cousin, Portland Head Lighthouse, Cape Elizabeth Lighthouse (called Two Lights, as it consists of two light towers aligned so the two lights make a range, and mariners can easily identify their position as a result) sits at the end of a road, near a wonderful lobster shack (The Lobster Shack at Two Lights), and not far from Two Lights State Park (which affords a good view of the lighthouse towers).

Aside from the view in the state park, if you go to the end of the road, there is a small, dirt parking lot, from which you can walk out on the rocks and get a good view of both towers. On a clear day, from the end of the rocks you can also see Portland Head Lighthouse, a few miles away.

Two Lights was depicted in artist Edward Hopper’s painting, “The Lighthouse at Two Lights”. The keepers house is not accessible, as it is now a private residence.

Stop by the lobster shack. It sits on a hill, and affords a great view of the lighthouse, as well as out to sea.

Two lights is only about 45 minutes from Brewster House, and we include it in our Lighthouse Tour.
