Once in a lifetime experience to stay in a lighthouse. Historic, unique and charming but with all of the conveniences that make a great vacation. Just feet from the atlantic with 360 degrees of ocean view. Beautiful and memorable all year long. The Wings Neck Lighthouse is an incredibly unique and historic property - completely renovated and now available for an unforgettable vacation. Formerly a us coast guard lighthouse, the light tower still stands attached by a breezeway to a fully functional three bedroom keepers home. Guests can climb the mahogany spiral staircase and view the atlantic from the lantern room, read about the history of the lighthouse and explore the rocky slopes around the property.

Located at the tip of wings neck point, the house has one of the most fabulous views of the atlantic ocean ever experienced. Situated a few feet from the water, the vistas are beautiful and traditionally new england. Exploring the rocks and the shore in front of the house is always a guest favorite.

Many of our guest have reported life changing moments when they experience the peace, beauty and serenity of this special property.

Some history:
Wings neck light was built in 1849 because of heavy marine traffic traveling in buzzards bay to ports in ware ham and sandwich. When the cape cod canal opened in 1914, wings neck light assumed its real importance for a number of years. The first lighthouse at wings neck was a cape cod-style light keepers house with a lantern placed on the roof. In 1889, damage from an earlier fire and general disrepair forced the construction of a new lighthouse. The present keepers house, with its attached hexagonal wooden tower, was built to replace the old cape cod-style house. For many years, wings neck was deemed one of the most important lighthouses on the Atlantic coast because of the heavy shipping traveling the cape cod canal but, by 1943, newer technology was making the lighthouse obsolete. The property was sold by the government in 1947 to frank and Irene Flanagan. They loved the property with a passion and enjoyed a long retirement there until Irene passed on in 1999. The property was completely renovated in 2003 and is now available for rent.
