Overview

About Saugerties Lighthouse

Heritage Lighthouse B+B in wetland location

Saugerties Lighthouse is located 42 miles from Albany NY. It is open year around as a bed & breakfast and contains a small museum, keeper's quarters, two bedrooms, kitchen and living room.

Lying off the Hudson River, the lighthouse offers a beautiful and unusual opportunity to step back to a less rushed pace and more traditional way of life.

This 1869 built lighthouse fell into disuse in the 1950's and 60's as a result of reducing traffic from local Saugerties. With the automation of the light, the original building fell into disrepair. A concerted campaign by the local villagers created a conservation trust who were able to purchase the buildings and associated wetland reserve for a nominal $1, in return for their agreement to restore this landmark. In 1990, the light was restored and the doors opened to the public to share this slice of history.

The lighthouse itself is constructed on an outlying spit of land, with a walk from where you leave your car.

I grew up in Saugerties, and whenever I go back home I make sure to visit this lighthouse. Although it never occurred to me that the location is "unusual", it is certainly beautiful. The short walk out there is definitely worth it (and in my opinion is an added bonus).

I didn't stay at this place, but that's only because there weren't any rooms available. To get to it, you walk through what seems like miles of wonderful nature trails . . . you feel like you're going where no man has gone before . . . wonderful! Once you've arrived, the sense of isolation and remoteness is overwhelming and amazing. After talking to the innkeeper (a very friendly man whose being running the place for years), I got stuck in a downpour with my 'special someone.' It was the most romantic thing imagineable! Next time I'm in the Hudson Valley, this is where I'll stay.
