The Cove Point Lighthouse ~ Imagine the possibilities!


Renting the Lighthouse

The 2 ½ story keeper’s duplex has been renovated from top to bottom. Each of the two rental units includes three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bath, a washer and dryer, Wi-Fi, updated kitchens, central heat and air, a screened porch, and all the modern comforts and conveniences of home. Visitors will be able to rent the site for three, four, or seven day periods and can choose to rent one side of the duplex, or open up the doors dividing the two sides and use all six bedrooms. Many of the home’s original features have been retained and restored, including hard pine floors, cast iron heaters, deep window sills, doors, moldings, and eyebrow windows. The interior is decorated with a mix of old and new and includes photos from museum archives and locally built furniture, as well as a one of a kind table made from the reclaimed wood of the dismantled Cedar Point Lighthouse. The kitchen cabinets were handcrafted locally and the tile that was laid captures the character of a 1925 home. To add interest to the site, portions of the drywall have been removed to expose some of the features of the original 1 ½ story home, which were covered when it was enlarged in 1925.

The grounds are completely fenced with a private entrance and beach access. The site is an idyllic place to slow down and enjoy uninterrupted time with your family and friends. The grounds have been landscaped and designed to accommodate a casual wedding, reunion, or family event. Since this mixed-use lighthouse site is still a fully functioning site, in addition to being a vacation rental, it will continue to welcome the public during the summer season for tours of the grounds.

Having Your Event at the Lighthouse

Cove Point Lighthouse is also available for your next special event or wedding. To host your event at our beautiful location, you need to rent both sides of the home for at least 4 days. There are no additional venue fees, you just pay to rent the home and the location is yours! With its secluded location and private beach, Cove Point is the perfect location for a celebration, retreat, or beach wedding.

Located just over an hour from Washington, DC and Baltimore, Cove Point is easy to get to, but feels like it is a million miles away from it all. Proceeds from this beautiful rental site will support the Calvert Marine Museum and a lighthouse endowment set up for its continued care.

****A restoration project of this magnitude could not have been possible without the support of many in this community. Grants from the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority, Preservation Maryland, Southern Maryland Heritage Area Consortium, and France Merrick Foundation laid the foundation of funding. The Calvert County Government, local community and supporters of the Calvert Marine Museum’s Annual Appeal and Bugeye Ball matched the grant funding. Tricon Construction, Thos. Somerville, Owens Corning, Ann Crain Art, Woodburn’s Custom Cabinets, HH Gregg, Jay Reid, USG, Tom Benson, 84 Lumber, MI Windows, and Patuxent Architects generously topped off the project by donating their time, skills, and products, to ensure this site is secured for another 200 years.
