Due to staffing reductions at the Two Rivers CG station, it is now necessary to drive to the CG station in Sheboygan to pick up and drop off the keys. Pickup after 1 pm, return by noon. Sheboygan is about an hour south of the lighthouse. For us - and probably many who stay at the lighthouse, this was a big inconvenience. The lighthouse cottage is fine. We had unit C. Good proximity to the beach. There is good food at the state park concession. This is a terrific place to ride a bike - you can rent them at the concession if you didn't bring your own bikes. We went to the Maritime museum in Manitowoc - well worth it. A tour of a WWII era submarine is included - very interesting. The CG provided a list of cleaning tasks that they expect renters to complete before leaving their lighthouse apartment. Some of the tasks were obvious: of course we will remove our belongings and wash our dishes. But they also want us to dust the TV and the bed headboards as well as vacuum the furniture. The chore list contains a threat to fine renters if we do not thoroughly clean the unit...there was other threatening language in one of the emails - do not leave any gifts/decorations for the cottages. Any gift will be put in the trash (couldn't it be given to charity if necessary?). The negativity was disheartening and unfortunate.
