The Saugerties Lighthouse is an 1869 landmark beacon on the Hudson River that stands proudly as a Living Museum and a renowned Bed & Breakfast.

The Lighthouse is owned by the Saugerties Lighthouse Conservancy, a not-for-profit organization. The purpose of the Conservancy is to maintain and operate the Lighthouse for the benefit of the public as well as to educate visitors of the value and heritage of the treasured landmark of the Hudson River.


Originally a bedroom, the Museum room now showcases the history of the Lighthouse and the steamboat era of the Hudson River. Displays feature models and images of steam liners that frequented Saugerties and photographs from the horse-and-buggy days of the Village.

Bed and Breakfast
Experience the rustic simplicity of over a hundred years ago at the Saugerties Lighthouse Bed & Breakfast.

Surrounded by water on a remote shoal, the Lighthouse is reached by walking a gentle half-mile trail. Popular activities include picnicking, bird-watching, fishing, photography, and relaxing by the riverside.
