Staying at a Lighthouse

Lighthouses take us back to a time when place still had meaning, before high-speed travel and the Internet shrank the world down to laptop size. Many still exist on the shores of oceans and larger lakes, and some of these are open to guests. Staying at a Lighthouse explores the lovely, secluded world of the keepers and visitors who truly get away from it all in some of the most romantic bed-and-breakfasts in the United States. From Maine to California, these unique inns are gateways to the 19th century, when radar and GPS were still generations away and the safety of ships required these American castles to dot the coast. Footage of the countryside and interviews with relaxed guests whet the appetite for a break from traffic and crowds; Staying at a Lighthouse is just the thing to counter 21st-century stress.'s price: $13.99.
