Facility rental cost covers full use of the 11.1-acre Whitehead Light Station property, transportation to and from Whitehead Island, parking on the mainland, excursions by boat on local waters, and the services of a skipper, who will be in residence full-time to drive the boat and assist you in any way he or she can. Bedding and linens are provided.
The rental fee is $6900 per week in the high season and $4900 per week in the off
season, plus Maine lodging tax. High season is June 22nd through September 21st.
A deposit of half the rental fee is due with your registration form. The balance
is due 60 days before the start of the start of the rental. If you book your
rental within 60 days of the commencement of the rental period, the full rental
fee is due upon booking.
If you have to cancel your rental more than 60 days before the start of the rental period, the balance of any rental fee already paid will be refunded to you, minus a $200 processing fee. If you cancel less than 60 days before the start of the rental period, the rental fee (minus a $200 processing fee) will be refunded only if we are able to rent the Light Station for that period.
At least one WLS staff member will have First Aid or EMT certification. Routine first aid provided by this staff member is included in the rental fee. In the event of a more serious injury or illness, WLS staff will provide transportation to the mainland and from there to Penobscot Bay Medical Center in Rockland, or will engage ambulance care on the mainland or emergency evacuation services if the situation warrants it. All expenses for outside medical care are your responsibility.
