About Us

The Lighthouse Lodge on Lake Shafer is the newest, most luxurious bed and breakfast in the Lake Shafer / Lake Freeman / Monticello area. Our lodge sits on lake level surrounded by Lake Shafer and Mallard Bay.

We have a historical stone lighthouse built in the 1930's ,soon after Lake Shafer was formed by the construction of Norway Dam. We have swimming areas available both on the main lake and in the bay, and a large park-like lawn for sunning and sitting in the shade of our many trees.

Our rooms have ceramic tile floors, large private bathrooms, therapeutic foam topped queen and king sized beds with high thread count linens, and are tastefully decorated.

Welcome to the Lighthouse Lodge

After a delicious breakfast in our recreation room (special dietary needs available – gluten-free, vegan, low-sugar, or carb), spend the morning lounging in our sunroom, or on our large sundeck and park-like lawn, then enjoy the afternoon swimming at our sandy beach, or boating on our 10 mile recreational Lake Shafer. You can follow that by watching the sunset over Lake Shafer and participating in friendly good-natured banter around our two fire pits near the waterfall and stream, or in our recreation room with card tables, bumper pool tables, and dartboard.

The Lighthouse Lodge has seven deluxe suites with tile floors, large private bathrooms, kitchenette, cozy fireplace, and therapeutic foam topping on your bed. With our 5- two-bedroom cottages, we can accommodate up to 60 guests. The Lighthouse Lodge B&B is perfect for a quick getaway or an extended vacation stay, as we are open year round.
