Stay the night at the North Head Lighthouse in Washington State's Cape Disappointment State Park
Updated: Mar 25
No, you can't stay in the lighthouse itself. And you really wouldn't want to. But there are three former lighthouse keeper's residences less than a 5-minute walk up the hill available for rent by the night and all year 'round. These century-old homes are well furnished and maintained for your comfort and enjoyment.
The former head lighthouse keeper's residence is a two-story Victorian-period house featuring a comfortable living room with TV and DVD player, a spacious tiled kitchen with modern appliances, three bedrooms with two very comfortable queen-size beds and two single beds.
The lighthouse was constructed in 1897 and is still very much in operation today. It is open to visitors May through September. Daily visitors to the lighthouse are gone by dusk. Here, you'll experience amazing views of the Columbia River mouth, Pacific Ocean, Long Beach Peninsula and the northern Oregon Coast. The residences are surrounded to the North, East and West by evergreen trees and wildlife such as deer, rabbits, raccoons, eagles and many other species of birds are regular if not daily visitors.
