Contracts in place for restoration of the exterior of the light tower

NEWS FLASH — Contracts are in place for restoration of the exterior of the light tower, work to start in April 2019! The finishing touch will be a new coat of white paint (actually, a high quality exterior coating appropriate for historic masonry – but it will look like fresh white paint). This work on the tower will be a MAJOR step towards completing the restoration, but (of course) there is still work to be done, and if you can make an end of year donation it will help to enable restoration work on the bellhouse, the fuelhouse, and paths around the keeper’s house. A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed time, money, energy, expertise and enthusiasm over the past year. We couldn’t do it without you!

What Visitors Have To Say

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

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….

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

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.

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!

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.

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.
