About this title

Synopsis:

Lighthouses have safeguarded and decorated the scenic shores of North America for hundreds of years. But even among those that still stand as beacons in the fog, only a few invite people to stay the night.

Staying at a Lighthouse visits these unique overnight havens, offering an inside look at these romantic and inspiring landmarks. Whether it operates as a grand bed-and-breakfast inn or as a more rustic hostel, a lighthouse enables guests to retreat from the hustle and bustle of their daily lives. Some even allow visitors to assume the role of lighthouse keeper for a short time. But they all provide a unique experience that is renewing and memorable.

This book helps readers step back in time at coastal towers on the East Coast, the West Coast, and along the Great Lakes. Information in each profile includes a history of the lighthouse and the area, background of the present-day keepers, and a description of the accommodations and the guest experience, plus all pertinent practical details--address, phone number, e-mail address, directions, seasons of operation, rates, and more. Beautiful color and archival photographs of the featured lighthouse inns enhance this terrific little guide.

From the Back Cover:

Staying at a Lighthouse takes you on a guided tour of more than two dozen towers that welcome you to spend the night. Inside you'll find brief histories of the lights and their surrounding areas, descriptions of the accommodations and what you can expect, directions, seasons of operation, rates, and more. From romantic bed-and-breakfast inns to rustic and remote towers to keepers' quarters well-suited for families and groups, these unique overnight havens provide some of the most sought-after lodgings in the country. A handful even allow guests to perform various keeper's duties-raising the flag, recording the weather, and other odd jobs-to help maintain the properties. All provide spectacular scenery, historic surroundings, and a rare opportunity to experience the serenity and simplicity of a keeper's life.
