So, you want to stay overnight in the tallest lighthouse on the Great Lakes in the middle of the Straits of Mackinac...20 miles West of the Mackinac Bridge, 13 miles from the closest boat ramp, and 7 miles from the nearest shore (an uninhabited island)??
We are offering two unique holiday
getaway packages in 2020. The first is a July 4th Getaway and the second is a Labor Day Weekend Getaway
The July 4th Getaway Package is for two nights (July 3rd & 4th) with up to 12 of your closest friends or family. We will provide everything for your stay including all your meals.
July 4th Getaway Package Price.....$6,000
(this works out to only $250 per person per night....half of our nightly rate. We are able to offer a discount on larger groups. Please note that we will only have beds for 8 guests on the light station in 2020. Extra guests will be provided air mattresses and/or cots during their stay).
The Labor Day Weekend Getaway Package is for three nights (September 4, 5, & 6th) with up to 12 of your closest friends or family. We will provide everything for your stay including all your meals.

Our cancellation policy is as follows:
Another change for 2020 is that we will not be offering any cash refunds! If your weekend getaway package is canceled due to weather, your group members will be offered a makeup weekend in either the 2020 season or the following season. Members of your group will also have the option to redeem their tickets for any other available nights at the light station. We always do our very best to make sure to get you out the light station one way or another. If your group cancels for personal reasons, the same policy applies. Please note that we have not had to cancel any holiday weekend packages to date based on weather (but it is always a possibility). Will will honor all bookings indefinitely!
What are Accommodations Like?
It is important that our guests realize that White Shoal Light is currently in a state of restoration. If you are expecting a night at the Hilton, this is not for you! We will have the interior of the structure cleaned up and free of any hazards. Guests will also be provided with private rooms and real beds. All linens are also provided. There is running water, a real toilet, and hot shower at the light station. We are also adding a second full bathroom on deck 5 as well as a 1/2 bath on deck 6 connected to our Sunset Suite (NEW for the 2020 SEASON)! Electricity will be available at certain times of the day and all night. There is a fully-functional kitchen on site as well as a washer and dryer. There is cell reception, but it can be spotty at times. Another change for 2020 guests is that we will be providing all your meals during your stay. We will be posting a weekly menu so you can see what will be served during your stay. You are welcome to bring your own food if you do not like what is being served on our menu.
What you are buying is an EXPERIENCE!...the experience of staying overnight in a very remote light station that is a challenge on a good day just to get to. You are buying the 360-degree sunrises and sunsets. You are buying the chance to be caught out in a storm. You are buying some of the best stargazing opportunities money can buy. You are also buying the opportunity to unplug for a couple days and experience true solitude and isolation. And most importantly, you are partnering with us to help save this iconic structure!
If any of the above descriptions do not sound appealing, please do not apply to stay.
