Saugerties Lighthouse

The restored, red-brick Lighthouse offers overnight Bed & Breakfast accommodations, public tours and special events. Furnished as it may have looked in the early 20th century, the Lighthouse contains a small museum, gift shop, parlor, kitchen, keepers’ quarters, and two guest bedrooms. The operational light-tower offers a panoramic view of the Hudson River Valley and Catskill Mountains. The Lighthouse can be reached via the half-mile nature trail at the end of Lighthouse Drive in the village of Saugerties, New York. A small dock is available on a limited basis to boaters.

East Brother Light Station

East Brother Lighthouse, or more accurately a Light Station, is a beautifully restored California Victorian Lighthouse Dinner, Bed & Breakfast Inn perched atop an island in the strait that separates San Francisco and San Pablo Bays. Located 30 minutes from downtown San Francisco, CA, the lighthouse Dinner, Bed & Breakfast is close enough for a weekend jaunt or as a unique complement to your San Francisco/Northern California visit. Once on the island, visitors take in the spectacular views of the San Francisco skyline, Mount Tamalpais, and the Marin coastline. East Brother LIght Station has been an active lighthouse for more than 142 years. The Inn began operations 35 years ago as a means of earning money for upkeep of the restored lighthouse and facilities.

Cape Columbine lighthouse

Standing guard over idyllic West Coast Peninsula fishing villages and holiday destinations like Paternoster, Saldanha, Langebaan and Stompneus Bay, the Cape Columbine lighthouse still has a dedicated light-keeper and is the prime visual icon of the area. It is also popular with travellers looking for a picnic spot with romantic history.

Tibbetts Point Lighthouse

Tibbetts Point Lighthouse exhibited the light of nine lamps set in fourteen-inch reflectors from its octagonal lantern room, and its first keeper was Judah Williams. In an 1838 report, Naval Lieutenant C.T. Platt found this “very useful light” to be in “bad order” and the associated keeper’s dwelling to be in a “bad condition.” The dwelling’s roof and the lantern atop the tower both leaked. The tower required a new coat of Roman cement, and the dwelling needed “a little painting.” All these repairs, according to Platt, could be made for an estimated one hundred and twenty-three dollars.

Frying Pan Tower

The Frying Pan Tower is a Coast Guard Light Station located 34 miles off the coast of North Carolina that is being restored with the assistance of people like you! The Frying Pan Tower is located out of sight of land in 50 ft. of clear blue Atlantic waters (lat & lon 33°29′N 77°35′W) With the Gulf Stream close by, we often are pleasantly warm when it's still cold onshore and mild when it's too hot to walk on the sand at the beach.

The Belle Tout Lighthouse

The Belle Tout Lighthouse at Beachy Head is a unique place to stay. Built in 1832 and decommissioned in 1902, a tea-shop, a home, part-destroyed during the second world war and lovingly rebuilt in the 50's. Owned and filmed by the BBC, moved due to erosion - and now, beautifully restored and renovated. With 360 degree views of the English Channel, beautiful landscape, countryside and the enigmatic Seven Sisters, Belle Tout is a remarkable place to stay.

Heceta Head Lighthouse

Perched on a breathtaking bluff 150 feet above the sea, Heceta Head Lighthouse is one of the most-visited lighthouses in the United States, drawing thousands of visitors each year to sense its history, feel its romantic aura, and enjoy its spectacular setting.

Cape d'Or Lighthouse

French explorer Samuel de Champlain named Cape d’Or (Cape of Gold) when he sailed by in 1607 and noticed glimmers of gold in the basalt cliffs. Turns out the metal in the cliffs was copper rather than gold, but the name stuck, and today many come to the cape to enjoy the golden sunsets, which seem to be specialties of this spot.The first navigational aid on Cape d’Or, which marks the northern entrance into Minas Basin from the Bay of Fundy, was not a light, but rather a steam fog whistle, which was established in 1874. The cape didn’t receive a light until 1922 when a 6.7-meter-tall, pepper-shaker tower was relocated from Eatonville and mounted on a red wooden trestle near the fog signal building.

Cove Point Lighthouse

The Cove Point Lighthouse is a beautifully restored and re-purposed active lighthouse and keeper's home that sits on a seven acre point of land in one of the narrowest parts of the Chesapeake Bay. The gorgeous keeper's house can be rented as a vacation home or for your next special event or wedding. The grounds are also open to the public during the summer months to enjoy a view of the Calvert Cliffs, explore the base of the lighthouse tower, and learn about the history of the oldest continuously operating lighthouse on the Chesapeake Bay.
