Winter Harbor Lighthouse has a small white-brick light tower with an attached Victorian keeper's dwelling. It is located on Mark Island, just to the west of Schoodic Peninsula. This lighthouse served from 1856-1934, and has been decommissioned. The lighthouse is now privately owned and maintained.

***Directions: From U.S. Highway 1 follow Route 186 through Winter Harbor to the Acadia National Park entrance--passes are required during the summer season. Parking areas about a mile south of the entrance have an excellent view of the lighthouse.
