A night in the Lighthouse

Experience the rustic simplicity of over a hundred years ago at the Saugerties Lighthouse Bed & Breakfast. Open Thursday through Sunday nights year-round, the bed-and-breakfast is a unique place to relax and enjoy the seasons of the Hudson River Valley. Surrounded by water on a remote shoal, the Lighthouse is reached by walking a gentle half-mile trail. Popular activities include picnicking, bird-watching, fishing, photography, and relaxing by the riverside. There is no air-conditioning in summertime, but the breezy location cools the rooms with the aid of a vintage fan. It is heated in wintertime.

East Room bed



There are two second-floor bedrooms, each with a double bed. Guest rooms are not rented separately, so enjoy the romantic seclusion as a couple or invite family or friends for the other room.

  • The West Room has windows facing south down the Hudson River and west towards the Catskills.
  • The East Room, the larger of the two rooms, has windows looking east onto the river.

For families with children, we can accommodate two extra persons with cots (furnished upon request; additional fees apply).


A hearty breakfast is included with your overnight stay. For other meals, you’re welcome to carry food out to the Lighthouse. A mini-fridge/freezer and outdoor propane grill are available for guests (no stove, oven, or microwave). For those wishing to dine in town, please visit the Trip Planning page for recommendations.


The first-floor bathroom is the only bathroom and is shared by everyone staying in the Lighthouse. It contains a sink and a claw-foot basin shower with hot and cold running water (but not so hot in the winter). A composting toilet is utilized due to the remote location of the Lighthouse. Instructions for its use are provided upon arrival.
