CHECK-IN INSTRUCTIONS: ARRIVAL TIME to MARINA: 3:00PM (All guests are offered complimentary boat launch service for your arrival and departure from the Lighthouse)
CHECK-IN: 3pmCHECK-OUT: 1 pm
Please plan to arrive AT 3pm, at Borden Light Marina, 1 Ferry St. Fall River, MA for your launch service to our Lighthouse. Please call our Light Keeper Kevin, 401-595-5777, approx. 10-15 minutes before you arrive at the marina to coordinate greeting you at parking gate and check-in. Please note: Once you turn onto Ferry St. follow ALL THE WAY TO END and straight into the Marina side of the property. The Tipsy Seagull bar will be in front of you. Follow the driveway left, along the waterfront approx. 150 ft. to a chain-linked gate. There is a large tan granite stone on left adjacent to the key fob post left of the gate. Please pull over to the right side and we will greet you there, remote you through the gate and direct you where to park. (Please be cautious as the area can be very active with marina operations)
We will assist with your bags down to the launch boat for the 5 minute ride out to the Light. You will be required to sign the insurance waiver, and offered either a 1/2 hour walk-through orientation on the safety, operation and precautions while on the Light, OR you can choose a full history tour of the Light (approx. 1 hour) and then left to enjoy this one-of-a-kind, memorable experience as Light Keepers for the evening! We will then return to fetch you at 1pm 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 are free to arrive or depart whenever you wish- the Lighthouse is our privately-owned home that we share with the public for your incredible Light Keeper experience and enjoyment. Therefore, we must coordinate your free boat transport 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 only.
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 as Light Keepers 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 critical towards keeping the "Light" restored, preserved and open for many future "Keepers" to enjoy!
Wishing you safe travels to us and beyond! Kevin M. Ferias Light Keeper/Owner email@example.com
