Explore Maine's Lighthouses

Maine lighthouses are a passion with us at Brewster House – so much so that we’ve named our rooms after some of them. We created our Maine lighthouses map (below) to make it easy to visit the lighthouses you are most interested in visiting. Our Lighthouse Tour Package allows you to visit at least 7 Maine lighthouses.

Please read our blog post, “5 Maine Lighthouses You Can Visit (within about an hour of Freeport)”. For more Maine lighthouses information and tours, you may wish to browse our series, “Let’s Look at Lighthouses.”
