#1 of 5 Specialty lodging in Point Arena
The Point Arena Lighthouse provides vacation rental accommodations in the historic Lighthouse Keeper's Quarters. Whether you stay one night or one week, your experience here in our vacation rentals and incredible location will leave you feeling rejuvenated and inspired. Fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves against the cliffs, or be serenaded by the howling wind as it rushes across the Point. Perhaps you will hear the faint barking of sea lions or the call of a black cormorant or two, your closest neighbors at this remote location. Available rooms include three 3 bedroom, 2 bath Assistant Keeper's Cottages that can accommodate 6 people (2 are pet-friendly), one Keeper's Apartment with a full kitchen and living room for two, two smaller but well-appointed Keeper's Rooms for two (the Bookkeeper's Room is pet-friendly and ADA-compliant) and one 2 bedroom, 1 bath Head Keeper's Cottage that is also pet-friendly. We offer the luxurious Assistant Keeper's House 4 as our showplace cottage. It is a a fully renovated and re-imagined 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with gourmet chef’s kitchen, beautifully furnished living and dining rooms, custom tile baths, designer furniture and linens in all bedrooms, unique art and decorative features and more! Like all of our Assistant Keeper's Houses it includes a a wood burning fireplace (we provide the wood and kindling), full kitchen, satellite television, CD/DVD player, gas fireplace in the master bedroom and the most incredible views along the California coast, as the Point is surrounded by water on three sides. Our other two Assistant Keeper's homes are also full 3 bedroom, 2 bath houses with fully stocked kitchens, comfortably furnished living and dining rooms, unique art and decorative features, satellite television, CD/DVD player, gas fireplace in the master bedroom and more! These units are also pet friendly, and share the same incredible views that all of our cottages offer. The Head Keeper's House is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath home with a fully stocked kitchen, dining room, comfortable living room with a wood burning stove, satellite television, CD/DVD player, books, games and more. The Keeper's Apartment is great for a couple looking to have a romantic cottage on the ocean that allows them all the comforts and amenities of home. This cottage has a queen bedroom, living room, dining room and fully stocked kitchen, and bathroom with shower. It is beautifully furnished and offers a gas fireplace in the living room to keep you warm and cozy on those cool coastal nights. Our most intimate and romantic options are the Keeper's and Bookkeeper's Rooms. These small but fully featured rooms boast a queen bed, sitting area with table and chairs, electric fireplace, microwave and mini-fridge and a full bathroom. You can find many fine restaurants and fun things to do in the area. All of our rentals include unlimited Lighthouse Museum & Tower tours and full access to our 23 acres of grounds for all guests during their stay. You will also find a welcome gift of a bottle of Husch Vineyards wine and chocolates from Mendocino Chocolate Company waiting for you in the dining room of your Assistant Keeper’s home. Finally, you will sleep deeply and awake refreshed because of the sound of the ocean lulling you to sleep on our super comfortable Tempur-Pedic mattresses. Renting an historic Keeper's Home is a great way to have fun and support the ongoing preservation of the Point Arena Light Station at the same time. We offer seasonal specials. Reservations are required.

My husband and I stayed in the Keeper's Apartment at the lighthouse as part of our 30th anniversary trip. We only stayed one night but wish we could have stayed longer. This is one of those places you can simply relax and enjoy the beautiful coastline views or go for a hike. There are several trails in the area, and we would have loved to explore the town of Point Arena more. We were delighted at our room. The outside of the apartments is very plain, and looks worn by the wind and waves. However, the inside is completely modern, beautifully furnished and comfortable. We really enjoyed visiting with the lighthouse cat, Arena Mina. If you come, be sure to make time for a lighthouse tour and to visit the gift shop and small museum. The guide and the young man working in the gift shop were very friendly and we enjoyed hearing about marine life they had observed while working there. I would encourage anyone to include a stay here in your trip planning. We are so glad we did!!

Property's Favorite Review
My husband and I had the wonderful opportunity to stay in the newly remodeled Lighthouse Keepers apartment. It was beautiful and very comfortable. Great care had gone into the design of the apartment, which allowed lots of light to come in through the new windows. The new kitchen is a very functional gourmet kitchen with top notch appliances and designer features. The bathroom is large and light and the bed was very comfortable. We were so sorry to only be able to stay for 1 night and we hope to be able to return sometime soon. Thank you!

This was our third stay at the Point Arena Lighthouse in four years - we LOVE it there and have never been disappointed! This time we stayed in the newly remodeled Head Keeper's Quarters - they have done an absolutely outstanding job of laying out the space so it is warm, inviting, functional and beautiful!! We love to cook while we are on vacation (OK, maybe weird but it is what it is) and this kitchen was a chef's delight - the appliances are top of the line and we had all the necessities available at our fingertips. Being on the coast is awesome, the views and walking opportunities are to die for, and the staff at the lighthouse can't be beat - everyone is super nice and very helpful. We especially enjoyed spending time with Arena Mina, the lighthouse cat, She made sure we were happy with our stay and even led us on a walk or two. We highly recommend a stay at the Point Arena Lighthouse to everyone looking for something "unique and extraordinary" - you won't be disappointed!

The Point Arena Lighthouse was an amazing spot for our honeymoon! The views are spectacular and the remote setting makes it perfect for a romantic getaway. The Keeper's Apartment was incredibly spacious and well-furnished. The interior decorating is spot-on and looks even better than in the photos. We felt so comfortable there, like it was our own apartment by the end of our stay. We wish we could have spent so much longer there!

We were fortunate enough to book House 4 for the 4 of us. Recently renovated, it is great. All modern amenities. Very clean. Super quiet, pristine location. Do not go here if you want fast WiFi or a lot of people. DO go here if you want a quiet, secluded, potentially romantic spot to relax, get away from everything and everyone, and catch up on a good book. Enjoy morning coffee overlooking the Pacific or evening wine watching sunsets. Go now!!
