CHECK-IN INSTRUCTIONS: CHECK IN TIME: 5:00PM (All guests are offered complimentary boat service for your arrival and departure)
CHECK-IN: 5pm CHECK-OUT: 12 noon
Please plan to arrive at 5pm check-in time at Borden Light Marina, 1 Ferry St. Fall River, MA for your launch service to our Lighthouse. Please call your Light Keeper Kevin @ 401-595-5777 approx. 10 minutes before your arrival to coordinate parking and check-in. Drive into the Marina property and follow road 200 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 given information on the history, operation and safety precautions while on the Light, sign the waiver, and then left to enjoy this one-of-a-kind, memorable experience as Light Keepers for the evening.
We'll 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 whatever time you wish- we are a privately-owned home that is graciously made available to the public for your experience and enjoyment. We must coordinate your free boat service to/from the Light , so we ask that you plan your travel accordingly to adhere to the established 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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
