Looking for lighthouse lodging? Five rooms are available on East Brother Island. Four are former keeper’s quarters located in the historic lighthouse itself. Each room, named for its view, is unique in decor and has a queen-sized bed.
A smaller, more rustic room, known as Walter’s Quarters, is located in the fog signal building. Away from the main building, it offers a unique sense of privacy.
A gourmet multi-course dinner is one highlight of the evening. Although the menus and accompanying wines change seasonally, some of the favorites include Citrus Glazed Rock Cornish Game Hen or beef and salmon Wellington in a puff pastry served with a dill hollandaise sauce. Dinner is served for all guests at the same time, in the dining room, giving ample time for guests to get to know one another.
Breakfast is no less a work of culinary art. Full breakfast is served in the dining room, at 9:00am, for all guests. A house specialty, Lighthouse French Toast Soufflé is often served.

Walter’s Quarters is located in the fog signal building, less than 100 feet from the lighthouse building. In the past it was used as a “keeper’s quarters.”
This room has a full-sized bed and its nautical motif sets it apart from the other rooms. There is a sink in the room and the toilet for guests of this room is located within the fog signal building, about 25 feet from the room.
Walter’s Quarters has views to the south (San Francisco) and east. It is our room which is closest to the water and farthest away from the automated fog horn and offers a wonderful level of privacy.
It is the most requested room for returning guests to the island.

“It’s late afternoon when I arrive – in time to watch the sunset – so I climb the spiral staircase leading up the lighthouse tower to a walkway. . .The view puts me in a philosophical mood: I can’t help but think of the lighthouse as a beacon of hope. . .”
