East Brother Light Station in San Pablo Bay California, now operates as an inn, and after April, there will be nobody to run it. The current operators, will be handing over the keys to the 1874 lighthouse turned bed and breakfast to the right couple.
Applicants should be prepared to do everything it takes to keep the place running, including ferrying the guests to the .7 acre outpost on the water. The inn is open four days a week and hosts a number of special events. The couple will be paid around $130,000 annually, and provided housing on the island, according to East Brother Lighthouse Inc., which operates the Coast Guard-owned Island.
