Project Gurnet & Bug Lights is a non-profit organization formed in 1983 with the mission of the restoration, preservation, and maintenance of both the Plymouth Light Station and Duxbury Pier Light.

Overlooking Plymouth and Cape Cod Bay, The Keeper’s Cottage is a beautiful 4 bedroom, 2 full bath house that can sleep 14. It also features more land than any comparable waterfront property.

Support for PG&BL preservation efforts come from donations, renting  the Keeper’s Cottage and volunteers who have provided their time to help repair, restore and maintain the lighthouses and the Keeper’s Cottage.

To almost every man and woman there is something about a lighted beacon which suggests hope and trust and appeals to the better instincts of all mankind.
