CHECK-IN INSTRUCTIONS: ARRIVAL TIME: 3:00PM (All guests are offered complimentary boat launch service for your arrival and departure from the Lighthouse)
CHECK-IN: 3pm CHECK-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. (Our staff does not arrive at the marina before 2:50pm, so arriving early is unnecessary.)
Please call our Assistant Light Keeper Paul @ 1-508-965-8517 approx. 10 minutes before you arrive to coordinate parking and check-in. Please enter into the Marina property and follow the driveway left, along the waterfront approx.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. (Please be cautious as the area is 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 given a 1/2 hour walk-through orientation on the safety, operation and precautions while on the Light, and then left to enjoy this one-of-a-kind, memorable experience as Light Keepers for the evening. (NOTE: you can also opt for the full 1-hour history tour upon your arrival, or just stick with the 30 min. orientation)
We will then return to pick you up 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 make available to the public for your experience and enjoyment. 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" preserved and open for many other "Keepers" to enjoy!
Wishing you safe travels to us, Kevin M. Ferias Light Keeper/Owner firstname.lastname@example.org
