Plan Your Visit To The Lighthouse — Bucket List Items For Summer 2018

* Check out the new Historical Society Exhibit – Women who Fish!
Fishing is at the center of the Swan’s Island community, and Swan’s Island women who fish have always been right at its heart. The exhibit will be at the keeper’s house and other locations on the island. Come learn about these courageous and hard working women.

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!

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.

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

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….

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.

- Spencer, July 10, 2017

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