“My favorite lighthouse...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

Whether from the sea, or from the land, Nobska is a quintessential lighthouse. You must look online and find the dates and times for tours, usually in the summer. The view from the lantern room is a stunning 360 degree panorama of Buzzards Bay, Vineyard Sound, and Nantucket Sound. Martha's Vineyard, the Elizabeth Islands, and Woods Hole are laid out like a toy village...

“Beautiful view of it in a snowstorm!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013

Not much to see over the water, but the lighthouse itself is very picturesque. Very nice view from the road looking up the hill to the lighthouse.

“Nobska Lighthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Breath taking views of vineyard sound and martha's vineyard. A great place to just sit and 'rest" and just soak in the view. A few minutes walk (or bike) from woods hole center.

“Historical Landmark”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

Lighthouses are a fascinating part of history, and this one was fun to see, although we weren't able to go inside. It provided the culmination of a nice drive on a beautiful day in Cape Cod.

“Nice quick stop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

My husband and I and 2 children stopped to see this lighthouse on our drive into Woods Hole. It's a pretty little spot with a scenic overlook of the ocean and Martha's Vineyard, especially if you walk across the street. It's just a lighthouse to walk up to so it's about a 5 minute stop max if you include crossing the street.
