Other Lighthouses Where You Can Spend The Night
Apostle Islands Lighthouses
Apostle Islands, Wis.
"For something different, spend a few weeks or the summer working" as a volunteer keeper at a lighthouse in these islands. "There are four manned lighthouses on this scenic archipelago that juts into Lake Superior at the northernmost tip of Wisconsin. The rewards are many, but the work is demanding."


Monomoy Point Lighthouse
Cape Cod, MA
Located off Cape Cod's coast, "this remote lighthouse offers spartan accommodations, but it's a great way to experience what it was like to be a keeper manning a lonely post." Overnight stays are managed by the Friends of Monomoy.  


New Dungeness Lighthouse
Sequim, WA
This is "one of four lighthouses built along the northern coastline of Washington state to guide ships through the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Guests serve as part-time lighthouse keepers and are asked to do light maintenance chores. It is spectacular isolation at the tip of the nearly 5-mile-long Dungeness Spit."

Selkirk Lighthouse

Pulaski, N.Y.
Located near the mouth of the Salmon River at the southeastern corner of Lake Ontario, "this rustic lighthouse, which holds up to eight people, is located in a popular fishing destination. The birdcage lantern room is one of the few of its kind remaining in North America." 315-298-6688

Rose Island Lighthouse
Newport, R.I.
"The folks here like to make it clear that Rose Island is not a B&B. Located on a rocky island in Narragansett Bay, this lighthouse offers visitors a chance to play lighthouse keeper by doing simple chores and duties. Says executive director Charlotte Johnson: 'We let everyone take care of, not only themselves, but the lighthouse while they're here.' " 401-847-4242
