Cove Point Lighthouse Rental

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. 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.

Due to needed maintenance starting July 17, the Cove Point Lighthouse base may not be accessible at all times. Anticipated completion is July 21.
