Plymouth Lighthouse Lodging
Vacationing at Gurnet Light Keeper’s Cottage is the ideal waterfront rental with beautiful scenic views of Plymouth Bay and Cape Cod Bay! The 4-bedroom cottage can sleep up to 14 people who can enjoy sleeping next to the oldest wooden Lighthouse in America!
The former Keeper’s house at the Plymouth Lighthouse was renovated by Project Gurnet and Bug Lights, Inc. and converted into a Vacation Cottage in 2007.
This Lighthouse Vacation can be yours for the special price of $3,700 per week or $10,000 per month during the peak season in July and August to $1,500 per week or $3,000 per month during the winter. All rental profits are used for the restoration, maintenance, and preservation of Plymouth Light Station (aka Gurnet Light and Keeper’s Cottage) and Duxbury Pier Light (Bug Light).
With these prices, a surprise visitation by the Spirit of Hannah Thomas floating near your bed at night might also be included! Hannah Thomas became the first female Lighthouse Keeper in America after husband, John was killed in the Revolutionary War. According to Bob and Sandra Shanklins of Fort Walton Beach, Florida, the Gurnet Ghost appeared very sad and they “feel” their apparition sighting was the spirit of Hannah after staying at the keeper’s house in 1994.
Other historical sites nearby include the Plimouth Plantation, Plymouth Rock, and Mayflower II. Plymouth Lighthouse was built in 1768 to mark the entrance to Plymouth Bay and Plymouth Harbor. For more information about Plymouth Lighthouse, please click on the photo of this post.
