Spending the Night in a Lighthouse is a Maine Vacation Highlight

Is it possible to really sleep in a lighthouse, one of the iconic beacons that have long inspired stories of adventure, romance and lore? In fact you can arrange to sleep in a lighthouse as a part of your Maine vacation as well as vacations spent in a number of seaside and lakeside locales. The range in what you will spend varies significantly from place to place, rising with the number of amenities that accompany the lodging. 

Certain lighthouses available for overnight stays are the original lighthouses keepers’ quarters that have been converted into hotel rooms. Many have ample space to accommodate a family or group of friends who wish to stay together during their vacation. Other lighthouses have just one or two rooms available for lodging, allowing for a more intimate and romantic experience for their occupants. Many lighthouse accommodations are centrally located and convenient to other vacation activities and locales, while others are more remote for those who wish to be more off the beaten path during their stay.

For those spending a vacation in Maine, there are other options to consider beyond the traditional converted lighthouse. Lodgings like the Sebasco Harbor Resort offer the feel of a lighthouse with all of the modern conveniences of a luxury hotel. Ocean views can be enjoyed from any of the lighthouse rooms in this creative alternative to a cottage.  Each room has its own private bath and flat screen TV along with windows over looking the dramatic Atlantic Ocean on the coast of Maine. Visitors staying on the lighthouse’s top floor are treated to a promenade deck, reminiscent of widows’ walks of old that provided eager wives with the first glimpse of returning ships out to sea.

Make your Maine family resort hotel more memorable by considering the creative options available and book your lighthouse accommodations today.
