In honor of "Open Lighthouse Day" on Saturday, September 15th the U.S. Coast Guard, the State of Maine and the American Lighthouse Foundation will be holding their fourth annual Maine Open Lighthouse Day.

THIS SPECIAL:
Crow's Nest Cottage queen bedroom.Cottages have living rooms with real woodburning fireplaces, kitchens or kitchenettes, and full baths. They vary in style from log siding to clapboard to cedar shakes. The interiors vary as well. Some have open log rafters, others knotty pine paneling, others are a mix of both. There are cottages with one or two bedrooms. The beds and linens are comfy. Many cottages have hide-a-bed sofas which can accommodate extra family members. They all have living rooms, full baths, and either kitchens or kitchenettes. Cottages are self catering housekeeping style, without meals.

Children of all ages (0-100 years old) welcome. Non-smoking. No pets on premises, thank-you.

Nearby Lighthouses: Pumpkin Island Lighthouse from Little Deer Isle.
  • Pumpkin Island Lighthouse. We view this lighthouse from our shore. It is privately owned. It can be viewed from Little Deer Isle as well...quite close. Our grandmother Josephine Littlefield tended the light while the keeper was away. Our great uncle Charlie Babson was awarded the job as keeper of the light as a consolation for the loss of his leg in the Civil War. He held this position for many years.

  • Eagle Island Lighthouse. It can be viewed from the shore at the end of Dunham Point Road in Stonington.

  • Mark Island Light/Deer Isle Thorofare Light. It can be viewed from the southern shore of Stonington on Sand Beach Road.

  • Isle au Haut Light/Robinson Point Light.This classic keeper's house and light can be viewed best by boat.

  • Isle au Haut Ferry Service/Mail boat-Lighthouse Tour. Arrange ahead of time to take the lighthouse tour on Sunday, Sept. 16th, 2012.

  • Dyce Head Light. It is located in Castine. You can drive by in a car; however, it is privately owned and not open to the public.

  • Portland Head Light. If you are driving to Oakland House from the south and it's a nice day, take a short detour to the Portland Head Light. It is an absolute beauty. Portland Head Light YouTube video I created from photos and video I took last summer.

  • United States Lighthouse Society. There is a Passport Stamp program that can be a lot of fun.
