Lightkeeper’s Cottage

Lightkeeper’s Cottage is a homely heritage property in a stunning location. Built in 1857, the Lightkeeper’s Cottage gives guests an insight into the domestic life of the Lightstation’s first keepers.

Views of the lighthouse and ocean are unsurpassed from this spacious, stately house, crafted from stone quarried by hand from the nearby Parker River.
