“A pleasant walk.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2012

When in this area, it is well worth the half-mile walk out to the lighthouse site. If you want to actually go into the lighthouse, visit on weekends or call for an appointment.

“Welcoome to the Hudson River or the Rondout Creek”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2012

It depends on which way you are going. The Lighthouse marks the entrance to the Rondout Creek and Downtown Kingston for The Maritime Museum or great restaurants when coming in from the Hudson River, A nice, old lighthouse.

“Fascinating Fun Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2012

Place is on the water and you have to take a tender to reach it. Oak furniture inside harkens back to an era when Lighthouses were used and necessary.This lighthouse history is interesting and very much a part of the history of the Hudson River itself
