Enjoy a Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast
From Maine to Michigan These Lighthouse Bed and Breakfasts Offer a Getaway with a Different View
Romanticized in literature and film, lighthouses and the lifestyle surrounding them have always had a certain mystique.
While most of our admiration for lighthouses may have been from a distance, it is possible to experience them firsthand by spending the night at any one of several that are open as a bed & breakfast.
Found on the East Coast in Maine and Massachusetts, the West Coast in California and Oregon and in Michigan on the shores of Lake Superior, these lighthouse bed and breakfasts offer a unique form of lodging that is unmatched. Magnificent water views, majestic settings and friendly innkeepers will make the experience of staying at a B&B lighthouse a memorable one.
In fact when you have the privilege of actually sleeping in a beautiful historic lighthouse, it is a memory that is so joyous, you find yourself measuring all your travel experiences by this landmark getaway. At the same time your travel dollars are poured back into the restoration and maintenance of a historic treasure.
If you'd like to live in the experience of restoring a lighthouse into an inn we recommend Jeffrey Burke's Island Lighthouse Inn; A Chronicle. The author is the innkeeper, along with his wife Judy, of the Keeper's House, on the island of Isle Au Haut in Maine.
