Alcatraz Island - San Francisco Bay
http://www.nps.gov/goga/spug/alcatraz/azon.htm
The Alcatraz Work Service Project/Overnight Program is truly a unique experience. Groups travel by ferry to Alcatraz on a Saturday afternoon to perform a 1-2 hour work project, such as vegetation management or cellhouse maintenance. After the work project, groups receive a guided tour by a Park Ranger. At night you can cook you dinner over the barbecue we have waiting for you on the island. At the end of the evening, groups retire to their individual cells in the D-Block.

Due to high demand groups are selected by a lottery system. Each year we accept letters of interest between November 1-30 only for dates scheduled for the following year. Dates are pre-scheduled by the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and assigned as groups are chosen from the lottery. Dates cannot be rescheduled.

The cost of the Alcatraz Overnight Program is $1,250.00 and the maximum group size is 35. There are additional age and insurance requirements.

We treat it as a housekeeping setup, whereby we provide all linen, blankets, pillows, pots, pans, dishes, silver, appliances, etc., for someone to move in on short notice with no more than the clothes on their back. It is completely furnished, forced hot air oil-heated with a brand new system, and contains numerous personal memorabilia from my having used it as a personal residence for two years prior to opening it for rental when the demand became overwhelming. In essence, it is a complete waterfront home overlooking Lake Ontario and a working commercial harbor (seasonal) ready for occupancy by 6-8 people from April to mid-December annually.

The inn is believed to be the last classic "shingle-style" hotel still in operation on the Maine coast. In wonderfully original condition, it has been altered only enough to bow to modern ideas of comfort, with baseboard heat and plenty of bathrooms. In 1904, there were two baths for 26 guest-rooms.  The Inn is a short drive from Bath, where you can take lighthouse boat cruises from the Maine Maritime Museum. Also well within driving distance is Boothbay Harbor and Pemaquid Point.

Hotel Pemaquid - New Harbor

A mere 150 yards from Pemaquid Point Lighthouse. Very easy walk to see the lighthouse at dawn, or at any time. Within driving distance of Boothbay are lighthouses, lights along the Kennebec River in Bath, and a ferry ride away from Monhegan Island Lighthouse.

Keeper's House Inn - Isle Au Haut     
http://www.keepershouse.com/
Perched on the Atlantic shore overlooking Isle Au Haut Bay, the secluded Keepers House Inn, reachable only by mailboat, beckons the adventurer to Acadia National Park, the seafood gourmet, the lighthouse aficionado, the ecology buff. Surrounded by spruce wilderness and island panoramas, from our walkway to the lighthouse you'll see four lighthouses winking through the night. By day, vast ocean stretches are cut only by the sails of windjammers and the backs of porpoise and seal.

The ultimate stay if you ever wanted to stay at a lighthouse!

Rabbit Hill Inn - Lower Waterford   
http://www.rabbithillinn.com Ok, so the lighthouses in Vermont are on Lake Champlain in the western side of the state, and the Rabbit Hill Inn is on the other side of the Green Mountains, in the eastern part of the state. But it is WELL WORTH travelling that distance to stay in this Inn. This is one of the best Inns that we've ever stayed in. The rooms are huge and beautiful. The 5 course gourmet dinner is fantastic, and the people who run and work in the Inn are super-nice. Treat yourselves and stay in this Inn.
