Museum Cottage

Romantic Cottage
Lovely Single bedroom cottage with queen bed and two single beds. Fully self contained with kitchen and lounge room and private bathroom facilities.


Top location on the Lighthouse station grounds. Out the back door you’re just 15 steps away from magnificent views of Bass Strait. Perfect sitting at sunset with a glass of champagne

This 1887 timber cottage was added to the lighthouse keeper grounds to reduce the 12 hour shifts the  other three lighthouse keepers endured in the Lamproom. It is very comfortable for a couple or Mum Dad and two children, with a queen size bed and two singles in a large bedroom. A separate lounge room off the bedroom, a full kitchen with all the modern facilities, separate bathroom and toilet, with reverse cycle heating and cooling, makes this a very cosy getaway. Step out the back door and take 20 paces to your own lookout 80 meters above Bass Straight.  It is recommended that you bring your own porta cot if required.

The Inspector used to come down to the Lighthouse unannounced with his own key to this room to go over the lighthouse keepers record books,  if he didn’t like the way the books were kept and recorded he had the power to fire and rehire the staff. The lighthouse Keeper and his Wife would look after him during his stay. They were always pleased to see the back of him going up Cape Schanck Road, he was a most unpopular person. This room has its own separate entrance off the main verandah, inside you have a queen size bed T.V. coffee and tea facilities, comfortable heating and cooling, its own ensuite, and a Microwave Kettle and Toaster but not full cooking facilities.
