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.
