LIGHT HOUSE'S, WOULD LIKE TO STAYING FOR THE NIGHT ANY SUGGESTIONS

HI
WOULD LIKE TO VISIT AND SPEND THE NIGHT (OR NIGHTS) AT A LIGHT HOUSE. PREFER THE EAST COAST BUT OPEN TO ALL RECOMMENDATIONS. ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
THANK YOU, DIVER

If you google "lighthouse lodging" you will come up with lots of choices from Maine to Florida on the east coast.

A few years ago, we stayed at the Two Harbors Lighthouse, in MN on Lake Superior. It's about 180 miles N of Minneapolis. You do pass through Duluth, which is worth a stop itself, but the lighthouse is the prize. http://lighthousebb.org/

There are three rooms in the lighthouse, all with different views. There's a 4th room, located in a separate building.

The interesting thing here is that there's no overnight keeper in the B&B. Someone comes in in the morning to cook a good, full breakfast. (Coffee fixings are available for an evening or morning fix.) One (or more) of the guests must also take the flag down at sunset.

There's also a steel ship's bridge on the property that's been removed from an old Great Lakes freighter, where you can wander around inside and get a sense of what the control center of one of those big babies was/is like.

Our son was working in the Twin Cities at the time we went, about 10 years ago. The drive up wasn't that bad, and it was well-worth the trip.
