Be a lighthouse keeper at the Grand Traverse Lighthouse
January 23, 2010
For those drawn to the history and mystery of lighthouses, a lighthouse keepers program provides for overnight, even weeklong, stays in one.
The Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum, 9 miles north of Northport on Lake Michigan, is seeking lighthouse keepers.
Keepers, who live in the lighthouse apartment for one or two weeks, greet visitors, run the gift shop and perform minor grounds maintenance.
The program runs April-November and costs $220 per person per week. A new winter keepers program, $100 per night, (up to quad occupancy) also is available. Info: (231) 386-7195.
