“On the potato chip bag.”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

So we wanted to see the lighthouse that inspired a picture on a potato chip bag. A factory is right in Hyannis, MA but we digress. Easy to find, no free parking. If you are visiting the beach you may include but just for a photo op, you can take picture and drive slowly around the property. After this, if you drive a quarter mile, you will see the Three Sisters Lighthouses.
Coming from Falmouth, off of Route 6 at the Cape Cod National Seashore sign turn right and follow the road around and north and you will see the lighthouse.

“Beautiful beach, great shell hunting”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

My two young sons and I enjoyed our visit. Former beach goers had made a sand mermaid that we helped embellish with the great shells we found.

“Beautiful and Beach too!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

This house is just outside Nauset Light Beach - bring a suit and beach items and spend the day in the huge waves! We saw a seal swimming just 50 yards from the shore!

“One of mu favorite lighthouses in Cape Cod”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

We drove on ROUTE US 6 stopping at almost every lighthouse. This one is beautiful, easy to get, not as tall as we imagined. But its a great view, a great place for lighthouse lovers. One of my favorites in Cape Cod.
