Stay In A Wisconsin Lighthouse For A Truly Unforgettable Experience

As local travel experts, we know what travelers are looking for when it comes to finding the perfect accommodations for their next trip. To compile our lists, we scour the internet to find properties with excellent ratings and reviews, desirable amenities, nearby attractions, and that something special that makes a destination worthy of traveling for.

With our miles and miles of Great Lakes waterfront, Wisconsin is home to some pretty awesome – and important – lighthouses.

And it turns out you can help the National Park Service man and maintain these lighthouses on a volunteer basis – while getting to say in the lighthouse for free!

The average say is for 3-4 weeks, but you can stay longer if you so desire. During that time you’ll help with maintenance, hosting visitors, running gift shops and more – all while staying in one of these gorgeous, historical locations.

Accommodations vary by lighthouse, but the NPS is clear about what each stay entails. Alll quarters at the light stations have: propane space heater, propane cook stove, propane refrigerator, twin beds, kitchen utensils, dishes, brooms, buckets, and an assortment of tables and chairs.

Sounds like the perfect getaway, honestly.
