If you’re looking for unusual accommodation for your next trip why not consider lighthouses you can sleep in. Lighthouses have long been the guardians of the coast and beacons for safety at sea but as some of the older ones go out of commission or others are modernized, there is a growing number of lighthouses you can sleep in. There’s one absolute – you’re guaranteed some of the best views of the ocean!
1. East Brother Light Station, Richmond California
You get two special hits with this one – lighthouse accommodation and a private island. The East Brother Light Station is a sympathetically restored Victorian lighthouse (built 1874) that is now a Bed and Breakfast and Dinner Inn sitting in the strait that separates the bays of San Francisco and San Pablo. This unique California destination offers stunning views of the Marin coastline, San Francisco skyline and Mount Tamalpais.
