Here is how you stay in a historic NW lighthouse

The lighthouses of the Pacific Northwest are often pictured in travel brochures and articles, used as an example of Northwest scenic beauty and history -- and for good reason. These lighthouses are located along some of the prettiest coastlines anywhere in the country.

What many people may not know is that you don't have to be content just to take a picture of these lighthouses -- some of them will let you spend a night or even an entire week in a historic lighthouse keeper's quarters. It's the perfect mix of great scenery, outdoor recreation and Pacific Northwest history.

Here are five examples of lighthouses that double as vacation rentals:

The Dungeness Spit and a vintage lighthouse 1is located on the Olympic Peninsula and is great place to pay a quick visit, or to spend an entire vacation. The Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound create quite the natural landscape.

If you're just visiting for the day, consider taking the five-mile beach hike that goes directly to the lighthouse and takes you along one of the world's longest sand spits. The trailhead is near Sequim, which is about a two-hour drive from Seattle.

If you're taking the hike, you'll want to check ahead so that you're going during low tide, which helps insure you'll have a nice beach path the whole distance.

If you want to skip the hike, you can also plan to stay at the New Dungeness Lighthouse. Between four and six people can stay in the very historical keeper's quarters which is rented out by the week.

Point Robinson offers visitors the chance to stay for a weekend or an entire week as a lighthouse keeper. This lighthouse is located on Vashon Island, very close to Seattle. And the best thing is, when you stay at Point Robinson, you can enjoy the beach right there on the lighthouse property. The property includes a wooded park as well but you'll be transfixed as you view the numerous birds that flock to the sandy shore and observe a steady stream of boats of all sizes passing in front of the lighthouse.
