It is a comfortably furnished home with 2 Queen bedrooms and a bedroom with 2 Twins. All the mattresses are Tempurpedic and very comfortable. You are welcome to use the picnic table outside of the kitchen and dining room, and guests are allowed to bring their own BBQs and use them on the patio.

The Pacific Ocean is out your front and back doors, the coastal mountain range and Manchester State Beach are just to the east and you are only a few steps away from the Point Arena Lighthouse and Museum. You also have a driveway that can accommodate 2 cars parked in line, and plenty of parking just across the road. Your stay includes unlimited tours of the Lighthouse Museum and Tower, complimentary bottle of Husch wine, Mendocino Chocolate Company chocolates and free run of the 23 acre grounds.

We are a non-profit organization that owns and manages the iconic and historic Point Arena Lighthouse. The tallest lighthouse on the West Coast at 115 feet, it also offers a museum, Whale Watch room, gift store and 6 unique vacation cottages that can accommodate from 2 up to 6 people, depending on the cottage. Come stay in comfortable cottages surrounded on 3 sides by the Pacific Ocean. We love tourists, families, couples seeking that perfect romantic weekend, large groups that want to vacation together, and people who just want to get away to a wild, private, spectacularly beautiful piece of the North Coast of California and get the unique experience of staying at a working yet historic lighthouse.
