“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

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.
