There are six rooms with a total of 24 beds. Five of the rooms are located on the third floor, and one is on the second floor next to the café. All of the rooms were previously part of the lighthouse keepers’ homes and have views of the sea. You will usually get your room at 14.00 on the day of arrival, and you must vacate it by 11.00 the next day.
After leaving your room, you can stay in the common areas until the boat leaves. The staff will give you your rooms on arrival.
For overnight guests there are two toilets in the lighthouse, one on the third floor and one on the second floor. To preserve rainwater, we request that overnight guests use the outdoor toilets during the day.
Sauna and bathing water
For overnight guests, the sauna will be heated in an outbuilding that is just as old as the lighthouse. Each room can reserve one hour in the sauna from 16.00 to 22.00-23.00. Sauna turns will be decided when you get your room. The water in the sauna is rainwater because there is no well on the island. All the water that comes out of the tap is rainwater, and the drinking water is brought from Rosala.
On the third floor of the lighthouse there is a meeting room that can fit 20 people. The meeting room is available for overnight guests and groups from 14.00 on the day of arrival until about 11.00 on the day of departure.
Because Bengtskär is a visitor lighthouse and is open to the public, you cannot organize private events during the lighthouse’s opening hours. After 19.00 the lighthouse closes, and those who are staying overnight can enjoy their dinner in peace. Groups who have booked all of the rooms can hold private events.
Coffee and dining
We recommend that overnight guests choose the full package, which includes breakfast, lunch, afternoon coffee, and dinner.
The breakfast with porridge will be a great start to the day. For lunch you will be served Jansson’s temptation or salmon casserole and in the afternoon you can enjoy Bengtskär’s coffee with a sweet bun or jelly donut. In the evening, a delicious archipelago buffet is served. The archipelago table includes the lighthouse keeper’s steak, fried fish (perch, pike, or whitefish), mushroom sauce, cold smoked and hot smoked salmon, sour cream sauce, salad, potatoes, Rosala bread, coffee/tea, and dessert.
To drink, there’s water, but if you want you can buy a beer or a small bottle of wine to have with your dinner.
The kitchen at Bengtskär can accommodate most common food allergies if informed in advance. Low lactose products are used in all of the cooking.
