We went with a bunch of friends who won a prize at a silent auction for 50 people on a boat trip that included drinks and dinner delivered to us at the lighthouse on a gorgeous summer night. Total blast. Very historical !

I pass this each trip down the Rondout Creek. It reminds me of times gone by. A great restored lighthouse.

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.

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.

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
