Few People Know You Can Stay The Night At This Beautiful Maine Lighthouse On The Ocean

Maine has plenty of incredible bed and breakfasts that offer cozy stays with friendly people. In fact, a lot of people visit Maine and simply spend their time reading by the fire and drinking tea. That seems perfectly reasonable to us! But, if you want something truly unique you might want to consider something a little less… homey. Perhaps something more utilitarian. This lighthouse might be just the thing!

We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
