Staying at a Lighthouse

America's Romantic And Historic Lighthouse Inns

By John Grant

Whether they were abandoned long ago or still stand as beacons in the fog, hundreds of lighthouses decorate the beautiful shores of North America. But only a few invite people to stay the night.
Staying at a Lighthouse visits these unique overnight havens, offering a personal tour of the most sought-after landmarks in the country. A few of them operate as grand bed-and-breakfast inns. Others provide a more rustic experience, offering guests a retreat from the hustle and bustle of their daily lives. Still others allow visitors to assume the role of lighthouse keeper for a short time. But they all provide an experience that is romantic, renewing, and above all, memorable.
Readers can step back in time at these and many other coastal towers:
*Heceta Head Lighthouse, Oregon
*East Brother Light Station, California
*Sand Hills Lighthouse Inn, Michigan
*Rose Island Lighthouse, Rhode Island
*Saugerties Lighthouse, New York
*Race Point Lighthouse, Massachusetts
*Monomoy Point Lighthouse, Massachusetts
*The Keeper's House Inn, Maine
Information provided in each profile includes history of the lighthouse and the area,
background of the present-day keepers, and a description of the accommodations and the guest experience, plus all pertinent practical details-address, phone number, e-mail address, directions, seasons of operation, rates, and more. Beautiful color and archival photographs of the featured lighthouse inns enhance this terrific little guide.
