This historic 1903 lightkeepers house, with a full kitchen, beautiful woodwork, and furnished with antiques has been described by US Lighthouse Society as 'one of the finest examples of lighthouse property restoration in the country.' It sleeps a maximum of six people (including children) in three bedrooms. The front porch looks out on a park lawn down to the shores of Puget Sound 100 feet away. The Olympic Mountains and lights of Tacoma can be seen in distance.
Online magazine, Smartertravel, voted this one of the best lighthouse properties to stay in the country. Staying at this fully restored lighthouse keepers cottage is a unique experience offering more than a vacation or weekend rental. Instead, you will be signing up to be an honorary lighthkeeper on a “Tour of Duty.” As such, you will participate in some aspects of the life of lightkeepers. You will have duties including raising and lowering the flag, maintaining a log of maritime traffic, keeping the cottage yard tidy, laundering linens, and having the place clean and ready for next lightkeepers.
PUBLIC TOURS ARE CANCELLED FOR JUNE and JULY 2018 due to construction project.
Each Saturday from May through September public tours are held from 1pm-4pm in the cottage. Tour guides will be on site to lead tours and RENTERS ARE REQUIRED TO VACATE THE COTTAGE DURING THE PUBLIC TOURS.
Please read the rental agreement thoroughly and before signing it determine if this experience will fit your expectations and needs
The cottage rental is for personal use only. No parties, events or wedding related activities are permitted on this historic property.
Sorry, no pets are allowed.
There are three bedrooms with queen/double beds. The cottage is furnished with antiques but has a modern, working kitchen that is stocked with pans, plates, cutlery, etc for your use. Wifi, TV and DVD player are available.
We look forward to your “Tour of Duty”!
