Stay In A Wisconsin Lighthouse For A Truly Unforgettable Experience
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.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
