Heceta Head Lighthouse - Yachats, Oregon

Heceta Head Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast - Yachats, Oregon
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 lighthouse is a working lighthouse. From a height of 205 feet above the ocean, it’s “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 Queen Anne style Keeper’s House has been restored to its original splendor. It now serves as an Interpretive Center by day and a Bed and Breakfast by night. The B&B welcomes guests year around. Guests are encouraged to view the lighthouse after dark, a rare experience. The awesome sight in the sky while standing at the base of the tower can only be described as “Magical.”

The Ghost of The Lady in Gray

One of the more famous haunted lighthouse legends is about the ghost of an older mother that roams the Heceta Head Lighthouse in Florence. The Lady in Gray, or Rue as she is now known, was the wife of an assistant light keeper in the 1890s. It is said that her young daughter drowned in the local estuary or the ocean and, in despair, the mother committed suicide. The location of the young girl's grave is not exactly known, but the headstone supposedly resides somewhere in the vegetation surrounding the lighthouse. Rue now haunts the Heceta Head Light, ever searching for her long-lost daughter. Rue walks the premises to this day. Guests have reported having some friendly encounters with the Lady in Gray.
