While the house isn't available for tours, you can drive your car right up to the lighthouse and walk around both sides of it. On the right, you'll see an entrance to the house along with the light house bell.

There is also a nice trail on the left of the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse where you can walk down alongside the rocks down to the breaking waves for a great view of the side of the light house.
