The Wings Neck Lighthouse is an incredibly unique and historic property. Formerly a US Coast Guard Lighthouse, the light tower still stands attached by a breezeway to a fully functional three bedroom keepers home. Wings Neck Light was built in 1849 because of heavy marine traffic traveling in Buzzards Bay to ports in Wareham and Sandwich. In 1889, damage from an earlier fire and general disrepair forced the construction of the lighthouse that stands today. 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 but, by 1943, newer technology was making the lighthouse obsolete. The property was sold by the government in 1947 to Frank and Irene Flanagan. They loved the property with a passion and enjoyed a long retirement there until Irene passed on in 1999. The property was completely renovated in 2003 and is now available for rent.
A once in a lifetime experience to stay in a Lighthouse. Historic, unique and charming but with all of the conveniences that make a great vacation. The Keepers Home attached to the lighthouse is your home for the duration of your stay. The lighthouse is attached to the house and guests have open access to go up and down the tower. The house is situated on 2 acres of land and has deeded rights to a private beach just 100 yards away.
