Maine Lighthouse Inns and Bed & Breakfasts


Maine's Lighthouse Inns and Bed and Breakfasts           

Goose Rocks Lighthouse in Maine

Goose Rocks Lighthouse in North Haven, Maine      
For those who desire a more extended lighthouse experience than a visit to one of our Open House days, Goose Rocks can accommodate up to 6 guests for an all-day or overnight visit as a token of appreciation to those who support our mission of lighthouse preservation. Donations to Beacon Preservation fund 100% of its expensive restoration and upkeep, encouraging us to make Goose Rocks available to those whose financial support provide the foundation for lighthouse survival. Such dedication to lighthouse preservation is often accompanied by a strong desire to experience a real “slice of lighthouse life” with a prolonged visit, offering visitors a chance to absorb the beauty of the Fox Islands as the Goose Rocks lighthouse keepers did for nearly 80 years.

Whitehead Light Station located in Rockland, Maine

Whitehead Light Station located in Rockland, Maine

Whitehead Light Station was commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson in 1803. It was the seventh lighthouse commissioned in the United States and has been in continuous operation ever since. In 1891 the original rubble stone keeper’s dwelling was razed and the current two-family dwelling for the keeper and assistant was built on the old foundation. In 1895 a second assistant keeper was added to the crew. A single-family house for the Head Keeper was built in 1900. The light was automated in 1982 and both keeper’s dwellings were boarded up and abandoned. The lovely Head Keeper's House was torn down in the mid-1980s, and outcry over its demise, along with that of a few other lovely keeper’s houses along the Maine Coast, gave rise to the Maine Lights Program.  Complete Story and Photos

   

Keeper's House Inn at the Robinson Point Lighthouse

Robinson Point Lighthouse  & the Keeper's House Inn
Robinson Point Lighthouse Station and the Keeper's House Inn is located on the remote island of Isle Au Haut, sits atop rugged ledges overlooking the Atlantic, surrounded by dense spruce forests and island panoramas. Built by the U.S. Lighthouse Board in 1907 and now on the National Register of Historic Places, the restored lighthouse station is a living museum where guests can take a step back in time to experience the beauty and solitude of another era.

The journey that brings you to the Keeper's House Inn is an adventure in itself. The scenic, circuitous 36-mile drive down the Blue Hill peninsula from Route 1 to the fishing village of Stonington can be slow, so allow enough time to enjoy galleries, villages and vistas along the way.

Little River Lighthouse Maine

Little River Lighthouse - Maine 
When the Coast Guard automated and then abandoned the Little River Lighthouse Station in 1972, the tower and keeper's house began to fall into a sad state. In 1993, the government offered the lighthouse to the small community of Cutler, who was forced to decline for lack of funds for the necessary repairs. It wasn't until 2000 that the lighthouse was declared excess property by the Coast Guard. At that time, the American Lighthouse Foundation applied for ownership of the lighthouses. Since then, their chapter - the Friends of Little River Lighthouse - has relighted the tower and restored the old keeper's house. The lighthouse station, once one of Maine's Ten Most Endangered Historic Properties, is now a beautiful example of preservation.
