Facial Coverings Update: The CDC has made an announcement that fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to wear a mask in public. The State of Oregon and the County of Lane have additional restrictions and requirements that apply to our business practices. As long as Lane County stays at any risk level, Heceta Lighthouse B&B, Gift Shop, Interpretive Center, and Event Venue will continue to follow those guidelines and enforce the wearing of facial coverings by ALL guests, visitors, and staff while in a public space. Thank you for your patience, respect, and consideration while we continue to navigate through these unprecedented times.

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.
Last year the Heceta Head Lightstation was 126 years old. This year the Keeper’s house is celebrating its 25th year as a Bed & Breakfast and interpretive center. We should be throwing a big party to celebrate our decades of accomplishments in restoration, hospitality and education. This pandemic has other ideas for us. We’ve headed into a perfect storm of restoration demands and operating costs when Covid regulations have eliminated events, restricted travel, and increased labor needs. Can you help us ride this out?
