Dream about a Lightkeeper’s life on your nighttime walk to the lighthouse. Away from the cares of the modern world, experience the vast starscape while you gaze at the beams from the sparkling first order Fresnel lens!

Wake to a decadent seven-course breakfast and taste the riches of Oregon and the Northwest.

Year round the Heceta Head Lightstation offers a Bed and Breakfast for the romantic and adventurous traveler.

Heceta Head Lighthouse

Pronounced “Ha – SEE – Ta” by most, “HECK – ah – Ta” by others, yet everyone agrees Heceta Head is one of the most beautiful lighthouses in the world. The Heceta Head Lighthouse and Light Keeper’s home are circa 1894. Both are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The lighthouse is a working lighthouse. From a height of 205 feet above the ocean, its “first order” Fresnel lens, casts it’s beams some 21 miles out to sea. It is the brightest light on the Oregon coast. It is said to be the most photographed lighthouse in the United States.

The Heceta Lighthouse B&B, in the Light Keeper’s home, is perched on a cliff with a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean and the beach below. Paths from the Light Keeper’s Home lead both to the beach and to the lighthouse.
