Lighthouse Day

Rain, fog, and a tardy ferry (with our main musicians on board) did not damp the
enthusiasm of 60+ people who came out for Lighthouse Day. The program was
juggled around a bit to accommodate the musicians’ delay, and as the rain let up
we moved outside for a grand finale and flag raising. Thanks to all the
performers, especially Kimberly Haller, who organized the music program,
Noah’s Ballast (with special lyrics sung by Sonny Sprague), and Deb Schwabe
who drove the bus, maneuvering it masterfully through the turn at the bottom of
the hill. Thanks, too, to everyone who came to help us celebrate 140 years of the
Burnt Coat Harbor Light!

What Visitors Have To Say

This has been a lifetime experience! The beauty of Swan’s Island can’t be described in words or photographs, for they just don’t do it justice….I look forward to coming back again next year!

Sunrises and sunsets are stunning, punctuated by the parade of lobster and sail boats.

We are fortunate to have traveled to many places in this world, but still contend, by far, this is the prettiest place on earth. Stay in the keeper's house - you will not be disappointed!!!! It is special.

I cannot express the gratitude I have for all of the dedication and hard work that has been given to the restoration of such a beautiful Light House.

The apartment, the weather, the people, the beach, the trails and especially the views have been exceptional.

We just stayed there and it is tremendous. The view and setting is amazing. The quality of the Keeper's house (2nd floor) is excellent. It is fresh, well decorated and spacious.

You truly have a treasure…. perched out here atop the rocks with the vast sea at the doorstep…. we watched a bright moon spilling its light onto the water, listening to the music of the waves, and wondering anew at the stars emerging in the dark sky….
