“Lighthouses capture the imagination in ways few buildings can. They hark back to
an era when nautical travel reigned and time moved at a slower knot…As special as
these buildings are, even more uncommon is the privilege of staying in one overnight.” – – – The New York Times
Make a donation towards the Eleanor and receive your chance to spend a romantic night or two at this historic 1869 lighthouse on a tiny island at the convergence of the Hudson River & Esopus Creek.
The B&B is open Thursday thru Sunday nights year round and accessible by walking a gentle quarter mile trail when the tide is low, or by your own small boat. There are two bedrooms on the second floor. with east or west views of the River & double beds. Guests share a first floor bathroom. A hearty breakfast is included with your stay & you are welcome to carry food out to the Lighthouse & make use of the kitchen and grill for other meals, or choose to dine in town.
Like the Eleanor, the Lighthouse is on the National Registry of Historic Places. In 1834 the U.S. Congress appropriated $5,000 for a lighthouse at the mouth of the Esopus Creek. It was required to guide ships away from nearby shallows and into the Esopus Creek when Saugerties was a major port with daily commercial and passenger transportation. Read more about its history and specifications and watch the video documentary A Light on the Hudson on the Lighthouse website.
The Lighthouse begins taking reservations for April through December in early January, and for January through March in early June. Priority is s given to Gift Certificate holders and members of the Saugerties Lighthouse Conservancy. Loyal guests have the option of booking ahead for the next year. There is a two-room or two-night minimum on Friday and Saturday.
