Wings Neck Lighthouse Accommodations

The Lighthouse sits at the very tip of Wings Neck Point in the town of Pocasset, city of Bourne - approximately 1 hour from downtown Boston. A private gate makes the property available only to residents and their guests. The house has spectacular water views from every window in every room. Because of the proximity to the Cape Cod Canal, interesting and unusual vistas of shipping and boating traffic are seen daily. The property faces West and enjoys a rare view of the sunset over the water nightly. There are sleeping accommodations for eight. The house has three upstairs bedrooms (1 King, two twin sets) and a pullout Queen sofa in the family room. There is a full bath upstairs, a half-bath downstairs and an outdoor shower. The property was completely renovated in 2003. The kitchen and baths have been remodeled and updated but the house was preserved in antique character and charm. The large, eat-in kitchen has every amenity including dishwasher, microwave and lobster pot! Dining al-fresco is available with outdoor furniture, a gas grill and a picnic table. There is a washer/dryer on the first floor. Wings Neck Point maintains a private beach for residents. The small town of Pocasset is approximately three miles and has a few restaurants and convenience stores. Nearby Falmouth and Sandwich offer all the excitement of Cape Cod - beaches, shopping, sightseeing, great restaurants, history and the ferry to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.

Wings Neck Lighthouse History
Wings Neck Light was built in 1849 because of heavy marine traffic traveling in Buzzards Bay to ports in
Wareham and Sandwich. When the Cape Cod Canal opened in 1914, Wings Neck Light assumed its real
importance for a number of years. The first lighthouse at Wings Neck was a Cape Cod-style lightkeepers
house with a lantern placed on the roof. In 1889,damage from an earlier fire and general disrepair forced
the construction of a new lighthouse. The present keepers house, with its attached hexagonal wooden
tower, was built to replace the old Cape Cod-style house. For many years, Wings Neck was deemed one
of the most important lighthouses on the Atlantic Coast because of the heavy shipping traveling the Cape
Cod Canal but, by 1943, newer technology was making the lighthouse obsolete. The property was sold by
the government in 1947 to Frank and Irene Flanagan. They loved the property with a passion and enjoyed
a long retirement there until Irene passed on in 1999. The property was completely renovated in 2003 and
is now available for rent.
