CHECK-IN INSTRUCTIONS: CHECK IN TIME: 5:00PM (All guests are offered complimentary boat service for your arrival and departure)
*** COVID-19 UPDATE:Now that we have officially reopened for the season, we are dedicated to keeping the Lighthouse as clean and sanitized as possible for the comfort and safety of our guests. However, if you prefer to reschedule your stay, we'll understand. If you would prefer to bring your own linens, pillows and/or kitchen supplies for your peace mind, please do so. Thank you for your support!
CHECK-IN: 5pm CHECK-OUT: 12 noon
Please plan to arrive AT 5pm, at Borden Light Marina, 1 Ferry St. Fall River, MA for your launch service to our Lighthouse. (Our staff does not arrive at the marina before 4:50pm so arriving early is unnecessary.) Please call your Light Keeper Kevin @ 401-595-5777 approx. 10 minutes before you arrive to coordinate parking and check-in. Drive into the Marina property and follow the drive 150 ft. to the chain-link gate marked "BOAT OWNERS PARKING ONLY." We will greet you there, remote you through the gate and direct you where to park.
We will assist with your bags down to the launch boat for the 2-3 minute ride out to the Light. You will be offered information on the history, operation and safety precautions while on the Light, sign the insurance waiver, and then left to enjoy this one-of-a-kind, memorable experience as Light Keepers for the evening.
We will then return to pick you up at 12 noon next day for check-out. (when you'll wished you had booked 2 nights!)
Please note: We are not a typical hotel-like operation where you can arrive or depart freely or whenever you wish- this is our privately-owned home that we make available to the public for your experience and enjoyment. We must coordinate your free boat rides to/from the Light , so we ask that you plan your travel accordingly to adhere to the STRICT check-in/out times listed above. (These times can be adjusted, especially your check out time if you need an earlier departure, with advanced notice.)
FINAL INSTRUCTIONS: After your stay, you must then travel home safely and, repeatedly tell all your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, and anyone else you encounter along your journey of life how wonderful a time you experienced and how badly they need to follow in your historic footsteps by visiting www.bordenflats.com to book their own incredible Light Keeper's stay! (LOL!)
We so look forward to having you as our honorary Light Keepers, and thank you for your support, as all proceeds from your stay are utilized towards keeping the "Light" preserved for so many others like yourselves to enjoy!
Wishing you safe travels, Kevin M. Ferias Light Keeper/Private Owner email@example.com
