Heceta is not to be confused with Hecate, who was the goddess of the witches back in the day, but this lighthouse was built in 1894, long after the 17th Century. Today the light shines across the Northwest Pacific Ocean, rescuing ships from hugging the jagged rocks below.
Comprising of the lighthouse itself and an attached cottage, Heceta Head offers you the chance to sleep in the historic lighthouse. From your luxury bed and wide-angle window, you feel the sleepy effect of sea air on your spirits, combining with the deep inspiration that flows when you contemplate the seascape.
Breakfast is seven-course. I’ve never heard of a seven-course breakfast, but it sounds delicious. The Lighthouse has a distinguished history and owes a lot to the early keepers and their families who worked hard to create a sustainable community in Hecate Head in the early days of the 20th Century. You can learn about the lighthouse's rousing history in one of the many guided tours that take place by passionate volunteers on a daily basis.
