Bucket List Item

Similar to Mackenzie's 101 in 1001 list, I have started keeping a New England bucket list.  While yes, these activities and adventures can take place anywhere, I am looking to do them up here.  Some of the travel is out of the country so those do not exactly apply to the New England theme but I promise, for the most part, they all will!

My first list item that I want to share with all of you is... spend the night in a lighthouse. 


There is a surprisingly high number of lighthouses to can rent for the night within New England but I narrowed it down to seven that I would totally go for!

  1. Rose Island Lighthouse - Newport, RI:  this one is right in our backyard practically.  The price is seriously affordable and it is on the national register of historical places. You have to take a boat out to the island but I can think of worse places to be stuck for the night.
  2. Race Point Lighthouse - North Truro, MA:  Depending on the time of year, you can see whales and seals right from the beach.  Talk about a dream to me.
  3. Goose Rocks Light - North Haven, ME: Goose Rocks Light has enough to room for up to six guests!  Lighthouse party anyone?
  4. Borden Flats Lighthouse - Fall River, MA:  Other than a few modern day conveniences (i.e. solar electricity and a modern kitchen), Borden Flats Lighthouse remains true to the late 1800s.  This lighthouse stands alone and has been around for over a century.
  5. Wings Neck Lighthouse - Pocasset, ME:  Wings Neck Lighthouse is a former Coast Guard property that can accommodate up to 8 guests.  Talk about fun!
  6. Little River Lighthouse - Cutler, ME:  Little River Lighthouse is situated on a 15-acre island with stunning views of Cutler Harbor.  Only accessible by boat, this little slice of heaven is a place for relaxation and adventure.
  7. Cuckholds Lighthouse - W. Southport, ME:  Cuckholds Lighthouse actually a luxury Inn.  You can rent a suite or even the whole island and it is the perfect for a romantic getaway or a vacation with family.  A lighthouse you can be pampered at?  Sign. me. up.
