out & about...a cape cod vacation

thinking about a summer vacation on cape cod?
how about a vacation in a lighthouse.

The Wings Neck Lighthouse is an incredibly unique and historic property
Wings Neck Light was built in 1849. For many years, Wings Neck was deemed one of the most important lighthouses on the Atlantic Coast because of the heavy shipping traveling the Cape Cod Canal.

Formerly a US Coast Guard Lighthouse.  The light tower still stands attached by a breezeway to a three bedroom keepers home.  Located at the tip of Wings Neck Point, in the town Pocasset on Cape Cod.

Situated literally inches from the water, the rocky slopes are beautiful and traditionally New England. The house was completely renovated in 2003 and is now available for weekly rental year round.

There are sleeping accommodations for eight. The house has three upstairs bedrooms, a full bath upstairs, a half-bath downstairs and an outdoor shower.

and incredible sunsets!

happy vacation planning
