Ready for Unique? Stay the Night Inside This Eagle River 1850’s Historic Lighthouse
There's no doubt Michigan and lighthouses go hand in hand. There are actually 129 lighthouses spread out across the mitten state. If you've ever wondered what it would be like to spend the night in one of these historic buildings, here's your chance.
There is a beautiful Airbnb in Eagle River, Michigan that once guided sailors along their way. Built in 1855, the once-working lighthouse has been completely renovated and transformed into the coolest historic place to slumber.
According to the Airbnb listing, the lighthouse was commissioned by the US Government to guide ships along Lake Superior's Keweenaw coast and housed the lighthouse keeper and his family. The lighthouse was decommissioned in 1909 and then the property was sold to a private owner.
So what becomes of a once-working lighthouse when its work is done? Well, it become one of the most unique Airbnbs in the state. Inside you'll find 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms. The view itself will steal your heart with the entire first floor opening onto the wrap-around deck with views of Lake Superior and Eagle River. There is also a four-season sunroom to enjoy as well. You can enjoy a fully equipped gourmet kitchen for cooking up your favorite meals, or head into the adorable town of Eagle River for a bite.
Enjoying the great outdoors is what it's all about in northern Michigan, and the lighthouse is located just steps away from miles of Lake Superior beach, and ATV/snowmobile trails for some winter fun.
