I love this place and go every year, some times more then once a year. It is open way to shot of a time span. there needs to be some kind of table in the setting room. there are 2 kitchen tables but with 13-16 people, (6 different families). There was no place to play a game or cards unless it was in the kitchen. Maybe a card table could be added, that way it can be put up only when needed. I have always met very nice people and made new friends when I stay here.

This was a totally awesome experience.Our host, Terry was absolutely fantastic. I have always wanted to stay in a lighthouse! I woke in the morning and it was great fun feeling like a lighthouse keeper’s wife cooking breakfast on a propane stove with the fog horn blasting in the background. (Well, except we weren’t up all night actually tending the light and we found out later that the fog horns we heard were from passing ships, not our fog horn house!) But it was great experience all around.

The new "learn how to fire a cannon" program at Fort Wllington (www.pc.gc.ca/wellington). This is a Canadian National Park so you will need a passport to travel from the States.
