Popham Beach LighthouseDramatic lighthouse accommodations dot the coastline along the east and west of the United States and along the shore of the Great Lakes.  Imagine wandering along a craggy coast this summer and staying at an historic lighthouse that’s been turned into a charming Lighthouse Keepers Inn or captivating Bed & Breakfast.  Fascinating Lighthouse Inns can also be found in Canada, Scotland, Wales and The Netherlands.

Images of perfect solitude embrace guests of lighthouse dwellings. Perched at the very edge of the continent, lighthouses were built to withstand all of natures furies and to offer warmth and security to lighthouse keepers and their families as they kept beacons illuminating dangerous coastal passages. Many of these lodgings are listed on the National Registry of Historic Places and offer a peak back to simpler times when nothing came between man and nature.
