While many lighthouses are open to the public, some have also been converted to allow guests for overnight stays. Most are bed-and-breakfast type businesses, where the lighthouses are either privately owned or leased from an administrative agency. A few lighthouses are also run as hostels, while others simply have privately owned facilities adjacent to lighthouse locations. Whether you are seeking the extravagance of a seven-course meal at a bed-and-breakfast or the bare-bones accommodations of a hostel, most lighthouse regions have at least a few options to choose from. While some lighthouses have been updated to provide certain modern conveniences, most of them still operate on limited resources and provide a glimpse of what past lighthouse keepers and their families endured in maintaining the lights. Whether you're an enthusiast or just looking for an interesting place to take a vacation, lighthouses can provide a unique and memorable lodging experience.
