More About Saugerties Lighthouse:

Purchased by the Saugerties Lighthouse Conservancy for $1, this restored 1869 lighthouse now welcomes guests nearly year-round. The renovations included 10,000 new bricks and countless hours of volunteer work.

Guests are not permitted to bring hair dryers and some other electric devices since electricity is in short supply here. Also, arrival and departure times must be planned carefully because the nature trail that leads to the lighthouse may be covered by water during high tides.

The trail to the lighthouse is open to the public from sunrise to sunset. During daylight hours, B&B guests share the use of outside facilities with the public. The interior of the lighthouse is reserved for bed and breakfast guests except during scheduled tours on summer weekends, noon to 3 p.m.
