Wings Neck Lighthouse Cape Cod, MA

This coastal home is only about an hour north from where I live. And it's a lighthouse.

wings neck lighthouseWings Neck Lighthouse sits at the entry point to Cape Cod, MA, and is available for rent. I love lighthouses and more and more of them are auctioned off and fall into the hands of private owners because new technology has made them obsolete and Wings Neck lighthouse is no exception.
