The following are many of the things we hope you will enjoy during your stay at the Point Arena Lighthouse.
The most incredible views on the California Coast
- Our 23 acres are surrounded on three sides by the Pacific Ocean, and our southern neighbor on the peninsula is the Point Arena/Stornetta Public Lands, which were designated as the only land based part of the California Coastal National Monument in 2011 and rated as one of the top 3 places to go in 2014 by the New York Times.
- Enjoy views from your room, the grounds or from the top of the lighthouse! All registered guests have free access to Lighthouse Museum & Tower tours during regular hours of operation. Feeling especially energetic? Climb the tower as part of a group every twenty minutes.
- Watch the whales pass by. Depending on the time of year you can see gray whales, humpbacks, orcas and even the occasional blue whale – just watch for the spouts!
- See the harbor seals hauled out on the rocks east of the Lighthouse Tower and on the drive out Lighthouse Road
Cozy wood burning stoves (firewood & kindling provided) in Assistant Keeper’s Houses and Headkeeper’s House
- Not only do they keep you warm on chilly coastal days and nights, but they do it with ambiance.
Complete kitchens in Head Keeper’s House, Assistant Keeper’s Houses and Keeper’s Apartment (Keeper’s Room has a mini-fridge and microwave only)
- Our kitchens are well-stocked with cooking and dining ware to accommodate your cooking and dining needs – you just provide the eats! Each full sized kitchen has a refrigerator, oven, microwave, and dining area.
