What could be more romantic than a night on an island in an historic lighthouse keeper’s cottage? Perfect for a special getaway or memorable occasion with friends and family, you’ll get a taste of island life on this unique wilderness sanctuary.

Built in 1881, the heritage cottage has been lovingly restored in the style of the era, except for one important feature. You’ll have access to all the modern conveniences to ensure your stay is comfortable and relaxed.

Unwind on the wide verandahs and watch for whales out at sea. Steal a moment of solitude in the secluded courtyards and reading rooms, or cook up an island feast in the fully-equipped kitchen.

While on the island take a walk on Montague Island walking track or volunteer to participate in the survey of 120 penguin nest boxes on the island? You’ll help preserve the island colony and guarantee an unforgettable experience.
