Sleep Under a Lighthouse Less Than an Hour From the SouthCoast
After one whole year living in our "new normal" of the COVID-19 pandemic, you probably want a vacation. Heck, you deserve a vacation! Start planning your getaway now with a nautical getaway less than an hour's drive from the SouthCoast.
Wings Neck Lighthouse in Pocasset, Massachusetts sits right on the Atlantic and features 360-degree views of the water. Talk about a romantic destination to spend with your special someone.
The lighthouse is also packed with history dating back to the 19th century. According to owner Christina, Wings Neck Lighthouse was originally built in 1849 to accommodate heavy marine traffic in Buzzards Bay traveling to ports in both Wareham and Sandwich, and it was a Cape-Cod style house with a lantern on the roof.
After a fire and general disrepair began to wear on the lighthouse, crews began construction on what is now the present keeper's house. Christina shared on the Airbnb post that while the lighthouse was deemed one of the most important on the Atlantic Coast, it became obsolete after a while due to newer technology. The U.S. government sold the property in 1947 to Frank and Irene Flanagan, who lived out long lives there until Irene passed away in 1999.
The property under Wings Neck Lighthouse was completely renovated in 2003 and now serves as a beautiful destination rental right along the ocean.
Wings Neck Lighthouse is currently listed by host Christina on Airbnb for $400 per night and with a seven-night minimum.
