Lighthouse Keeper Program

  • The application period is now closed for this year's lighthouse keeper program. Check back in late fall for your opportunity to be a lighthouse keeper next year.
Are you looking for a one-of-akind stay at beautiful Tawas Bay? We are making the restored keeper's quarters available from mid May through mid October for your dream destination. Ah, imagine having your cup of coffee as you look out over the bay . . . or being lulled to sleep by waves hitting the shore.

You must be at least 18 years old and agree to lead lighthouse tours and take on other duties during a minimum two-week stay. Oh, the spectacular view and the unique lodging are so worth it!
