Help me live in a lighthouse.

I want to live in a lighthouse. I have a somewhat random but longstanding interest in living in a North American lighthouse as my primary dwelling (i.e. not as a vacation or seasonal rental
). I'm not sure if I have a preference between owning and paying rent. I don't have any preference as to the operationality of the lighthouse.
My searching always gets clogged with lighthouse bed-and-breakfast-type deals and limited tourist stays, or great sources for enthusiasts like the United States Lighthouse Society
that unfortunately don't extend to living
in a lighthouse.
Does anyone have experience with actual permanent/semi-permanent living in a lighthouse?
How did you find one to live in?
I know that some lighthouses house permanent caretakers or operators--is there some type of (Coast Guard?) training I should pursue if I want to live in a lighthouse?
