Lodging: Lighthouses

Do you know of an exotic hotel or other lodging that should be included here? Send me the details.

Big Bay Point Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast.  Big Bay, Michigan, USA. 

"High atop a cliff jutting into the clear, deep waters of Lake Superior, the Big Bay Point Lighthouse beckons travelers in search of a secluded retreat from modern life. This unique bed-and-breakfast inn is one of the few surviving resident lighthouses in the country and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places."

East Brother Light Station.  Point Richmond, California, USA.

"East Brother Light Station is a beautifully restored Victorian Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast inn perched atop an island in the straits that separate San Francisco and San Pablo Bays."  

Heceta Head Lighthouse.  Yachats, Oregon, USA.

"The lighthouse is a working lighthouse. From a height of 205 feet above the ocean, it's "first order" Fresnel lens, casts it's beams some 21 miles out to sea. It is the brightest light on the Oregon coast. It is said to be the most photographed lighthouse in the U.S.

The Queen Anne style Keeper's House has been restored to its original splendor. It now serves as an Interpretive Center by day and a Bed and Breakfast by night. The B & B welcomes guests year around. Guests are encouraged to view the lighthouse after dark, a rare experience. The awesome sight in the sky while standing at the base of the tower can only be described as "Magical." It is an experience you will never forget. It is so inspiring that it often leads to such life changing events as marriage proposals.

The Keeper's House is perched on a cliff with a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean and the beach below. Paths from the Keeper's House lead both to the beach and to the lighthouse.

A seven-course gourmet breakfast is served each morning in the dining room and is included in the price of the room. The bed and breakfast has been featured in the Sunset Magazine, Oregon Coast Magazine, Gourmet Magazine, The New York Times and on PBS Television to name just a few." 

The Keeper's House Inn, Robinson Point Lighthouse Station, Isle Au Haut, Maine, USA.

"Perched on the Atlantic shore overlooking Isle Au Haut Bay, the secluded Keepers House Inn, reachable only by mailboat, beckons the adventurer to Acadia National Park, the seafood gourmet, the lighthouse aficionado, the ecology buff. Surrounded by spruce wilderness and island panoramas, from our walkway to the lighthouse you'll see four lighthouses winking through the night. By day, vast ocean stretches are cut only by the sails of windjammers and the backs of porpoise and seal.

With no grid electricity and no telephones at the inn, and no tourist development to detract from the splendor of the island and this remote appendage to Acadia National Park, you'll while away your days exploring the island's secluded virgin coast. Or simply relax by the lighthouse, or in our organic gardens while watching the island lobstermen haul their traps, or the occasional windjammer bearing in on the lighthouse to seek a night's anchorage in the Isle Au Haut Thoroughfare. In the morning after breakfast, join us for an eco-tour of the station's photovoltaic systems, windmill and peat bog gardens and learn about our ecologically sustainable energy, waste and recycling systems. Several times a week we provide tours aboard PAX, our bio-diesel powered 1951 motor launch. Later, as the sun sets behind the lighthouse, enjoy your gourmet seafood dinner under the warm glow of oil chandeliers."

Point Arena Light House.  Point Arena, California, USA.

"The Point Arena Lighthouse accommodations feature four keeper homes for your vacation pleasure. Whether you stay one night or one week, your experience here at this incredible location will leave you feeling rejuvenated and inspired. Fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves against the cliffs, or be serenaded by the howling wind as it rushes across the point. Perhaps you will hear the faint barking of harbor seals or the call of a black cormorant or two, your closest neighbors at this remote location."

The Rose Island Lighthouse.  Newport, Rhode Island, USA.

"Our Lighthouse museum looks just as it did at the turn of the century when Charles and Christina Curtis were keepers. It is kept busy during the daytime from 10 AM to 4 PM in the spring and fall when we offer tours to school groups. In the summer (when the ferry is running) it is open for daily public tours. Group tours are offered in the fall only by appointment. After the museum closes each day, the two keeper’s bedrooms become available for people who want to step back in time. . . a mile offshore and a century in the past. Become the keeper for a night!" 

Saugerties Lighthouse.  USA. 

"The Saugerties Lighthouse is open year around as a Bed & Breakfast. Public tours are weekends and holidays, Memorial Day through Labor Day, 2pm to 5pm and by appointment or chance. It contains a small museum, keepers quarters, two bedrooms, kitchen and living room."  Note: There is no TV.
