Grand Traverse Lighthouse Keeper Program

Looking for something to do this winter?  The Grand Traverse Lighthouse has announced they will be extending their Keeper program throughout the winter.  The program is normally offered from April through November.  A special Off Season Keepers Program will run from December through April.

MLive’s travel writer, Kim Schneider, tells us more about Winter Keeper Program at the lighthouse.

In the high season, keepers must commit to a week. In the off season, you can stay just one night (or more) for $25 a person, per night, up to four people at a time. Keepers also are expected to do basic maintenance chores and give historical information to any cross-country skiers or snowshoers who may be passing by.

Read Kim’s article for more information. Or visit the Grand Traverse Lighthouse website for a Keeper’s manual and application.
