Have you ever wanted to be a light keeper in one of Michigan’s beautiful lighthouses?

This could be your summer vacation!

If you’re like me, the only thing that keeps you sane through this cold, nasty time of the year is the thought of a summer vacation! If those vacation days are spent right here in Michigan, this might a very unique way to spend a week.

The state of Michigan is inviting potential vacationers to be a light keeper at Tawas Point Lighthouse, on the shores of Lake Huron in East Tawas.

The Department of Natural Resources is taking applications for volunteers willing to spend a week at the lighthouse between March 1 and December 20. Those volunteers will act as a light keeper, learn the lighthouse’s history and give tours.

The lighthouse keeper program is open to couples and singles, eighteen years and older.

Volunteers will stay in the recently remodeled keeper’s quarters. The cost for this once in a lifetime experience is $250 per person for the week.

If you aren’t familiar with the Tawas Point Lighthouse, it does have its’ own Facebook page. Like all of Michigan’s lighthouses, it’s beautiful!
