Saugerties Lighthouse, NY
This striking redbrick lighthouse on the Hudson River was built in 1869 but fell into decay in the mid-20th century. That is until it landed itself a spot on the National Register of Historic Places and gained the funds needed for restoration in 1990.
A few hours north of New York City in Saugerties, the landmark beacon now invites guests for a countryside stay in the bed and breakfast’s two bedrooms, complete with antique coal stoves, tower windows, quilted bedding, and friendly amenities. If the encompassing nature trails and unbelievable views of the Catskills aren’t enough to keep you engaged, take a drive into the small town of Saugerties for some shopping and dining.
