to the Saugerties Lighthouse, an 1869 landmark beacon on the Hudson River that stands proudly as a Living Museum and a renowned Bed & Breakfast. Step back in time over a hundred years to experience the charm and rustic simplicity of life in the middle of the river.

Lighthouses capture the imagination in ways few buildings can. They hark back to an era when nautical travel reigned and time moved at a slower knot... As special as these buildings are, even more uncommon is the privilege of staying in one overnight." rating

If there's anything more romantic than the Saugerties Lighthouse, I simply don't know what it could be. We have no interest in leaving the lighthouse. Ever." rating
-Budget Travel
Anyone can visit the lighthouse, but to experience the raw beauty of this place, I highly recommend staying the night... you can almost forget what century you're living in." rating
