Lighthouse Keepers

Are you looking for a one-of-a-kind stay at beautiful Tawas Bay? We are making the restored keeper's quarters available from mid May through mid October for your dream destination. Imagine having your cup of coffee as you look out over the bay . . . or being lulled to sleep by waves hitting the shore.

Prospective keepers apply in teams of four; each person must be at least 18 years old and agree to lead lighthouse tours and take on other duties during a minimum two-week stay. Cost is $250 per person per two-week stay.

Oh, the spectacular view and the unique lodging are so worth it!

The application period for 2022 is closed; the application period for 2023 is not yet open. For more information about the Tawas Point Lighthouse Keeper Program, contact DNR-Tawaskeepers@Michigan.gov.
