“Nice lighthouse”

Charlotte-Genesee Lighthouse
Ranked #24 of 148 things to do in Rochester
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 10 November 2013

The museum wasn't open during our visit so we only saw the exterior. It is a very attractive lighthouse on well-kept grounds. Still worth stopping to visit if you are in the area even if you can't get inside.

I've lived here for 20 years and JUST went to this place. This year they've extended their hours. The volunteers were very friendly and knowledgeable. It cost only $3. You get a tour of the museum and a chance to go up into the lighthouse. The lighthouse guide was very enthusiastic and full of interesting tidbits. You can tell they enjoy what they do. They view was beautiful. Head up to Charlotte for the day and visit them, grab some lunch at a local restaurant then visit Ontario Beach Park.

What a beautiful hidden gem. We had been to Rochester many times over the years and did not know about this spot. Well worth stopping to see.

If you think lighthouses are neat and worth scouting after -- don't miss this one. Although Mother Nature has put some distance between the water and the house -- climb it and get a good look at the local canal scene. Very knowledgeable guides.

If you live in Rochester, you need to Visit. Climb to the Top. Up the winding Staircase and then into the Crows Nest where the Light used to be,
