Maine’s Cuckolds Light Opening as B&B
July 14, 2014
After a decade-long restoration effort spearheaded by a nonprofit group, for the first time in 122 years, Maine’s Cuckolds Light is open to the public, and it is set to begin serving as a bed and breakfast, according to an article in the Bangor Daily News.
The restored 1892 Cuckolds Fog Signal and Light Station straddling a pair of islets called The Cuckolds at the mouth of Boothbay Harbor is not your typical bed and breakfast. Guests will plunk down $500 on weekends and $350 during the week to stay in a deluxe lightkeeper house with WiFi, LED TVs, soaking tubs and the ocean lapping outside their windows. The innkeepers, both in their 50s, offer gourmet breakfast, afternoon tea and private boat service from the mainland, but won’t reap a dime for their efforts.
