On July 21st, the Friends of Little River Lighthouse opened the Keeper’s House for overnight guests after the Boy Scouts and volunteers worked eight years to restore the Lighthouse located on Little River Island in Cutler, Maine.

The Keeper’s House has three Guest Bedrooms with a double bed in each room. The price for first year guests is $75.00 per night and guests need to pack their food, beverages, bottled water, bed linens or sleeping bag, and towels.

With no television, a foghorn will entertain you while you sleep. If you have no problems with sharing the Kitchen, Living Room, and the two Bathrooms with other guests than this secluded 15-acre wooded island could be your ideal retreat. Little River Island overlooks the Bay of Fundy with scenic vistas of Cutler’s rocky Bold Coast, Grand Manan Island, and Machias Seal Island Lighthouse can be seen in the distance on a clear day.

According to Timothy Harrison, the proceeds from the overnight guests will help maintain the Lighthouse. Timothy Harrison is the co-chairman of the Friends of Little River Lighthouse, a chapter of the American Lighthouse Foundation, and the editor of Lighthouse Digest.

  1. Hi Eric “Speedcat Hollydale,”

    The Old I.P. Zaultie Sea Dog was my second guess! 😀

  2. Hi Eric “SpeedyCat,”

    I know the Boy Scouts from Troop 23 in South Portland, Maine worked to restore the Lighthouse for the last two years and volunteers have been working at Little River Light for 8-years. For the Scouts, their memories of saving a Lighthouse Treasure will last a lifetime!

    Did I.P. Freely nickname you Little River? 😉

  3. I was known as Little River as a young boy.

    8 years of volunteering by the Scouts?? Now this is something so worth while and a perfect way to show young men the satisfaction of a job well done. What a great story 🙂

  4. Hi Linda,

    You’re welcome, a scenic Bay of Fundy vacation was one of our best experiences!

  5. That sounds like a pretty good deal and I’ve heard quite a bit about the Evangeline Trail. I’ll have to keep it in mind for future reference!

    Thanks again, Debbie!

  6. Hi Linda,

    You’re welcome. Wise choice on visiting East Quoddy Lighthouse! My sister braved the dangerous conditions to walk 1,000-feet to the Lighthouse while we were safely grounded on Campobello Island. The best (and safest?) way to see East Quoddy Lighthouse is from a two-hour Quoddy Region Lighthouse Cruise.

    The Cat Ferry offers the “Evangeline Escape” package for 2 or 3 days starting at $302.
    The package includes lodging, and Round Trip passenger and vehicle fare on The CAT. Drive along the Evangeline Trail to view the amazing Bay of Fundy.

  7. Thanks for all the info, Debbie – the East Quoddy Lighthouse was sounding really interesting right up until you got to the part “climb down a steep ladder to cross a wet seaweed-covered rocky intertidal zone”! I’m not so sure how I’d do with a steep ladder or a wet-seaweed covered rocky zone of any sort!

    One of these days I really do want to go up to Nova Scotia to see the Bay of Fundy and those phenomenal tides. I’ve often thought of taking the ferry over from Portland, Maine and then staying in some of the lovely little hotels that Nova Scotia has to offer. Maybe I could be smart enough to plan for something like that next summer – though I doubt it!

    The Little River Lighthouse still sounds awfully darned cute – minus the fog horn of course!

  8. Hi Linda,

    The Bay of Fundy is just north of Grand Manan Island between the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, with a small portion touching the state of Maine.

    To see the change of 50-foot high tides, there are several scenic destinations in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. For more information about the Bay of Fundy, please visit http://www.bayoffundytourism.com/.

    East Quoddy Lighthouse, located on the eastern tip of Campobello Island in the Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick, Canada, is the only Lighthouse we visited in the Bay of Fundy.

    Due to the fast rising strong tidal currents, East Quoddy Lighthouse can be a dangerous Lighthouse to visit yet, the adventuresome visitor can walk on the ocean floor, cross two islands connected by a short, wooden bridge and climb down a steep ladder to cross a wet seaweed-covered rocky intertidal zone, to visit the lighthouse while the tide is out for two hours.

    Although Little River Lighthouse overlooks the Bay of Fundy, the island may not be the ideal location to see the tidal changes in the bay yet, lodging at the lighthouse should be a quiet peaceful vacation when the Foghorn is silent!

  9. I want to go here! This looks like it would be so cool! And it overlooks the Bay of Fundy you say? I’ve always wanted to see that! Perhaps I can find some friends to go with me and we can make a nice little vacation of the trip!
