Are you looking for a unique Michigan vacation for the summer? The Tawas Point Lighthouse has an opportunity for you to make a very memorable stay as their lighthouse keeper for a week this summer. You will need to fill out an application, a letter stating why you wish to be a lighthouse keeper, send a $25 non-refundable deposit, as well as submit a letter of reference. If you luck out and are picked to serve as a keeper for a week you will then need to pay a $225 rental fee for your stay at the refurbished keeper's quarters.
How cool would that be to wake up each morning in a Michigan historic lighthouse?
Your daily duties as lighthouse keeper may include:
- Providing tours
- Deal with the public
- Handle unexpected emergencies
- Working in the Lighthouse Store
- Performing routine cleaning and maintenance
