This was our second stop on the double lighthouse tour through hudson cruises. We had a welcoming committee upon arrival, which lead us around the lighthouse. It is amazing to see this labor of love.

This is one of the best light houses on the Hudson River. Accessible by tour boat the Light House has been restored to a working condition. Tours take inside and out of this historic property. The boat ride is nice. Don't miss this tour when in the area.

The Esopus meadows lighthouse is a beautifully restored lighthouse. Visible from land or boat. There are two parks on the Esopus side that offeres to different areas, one a picnic area and the second is hiking trail along the river both offering beautiful areas of enjoying the view of the river and the light house and to have a picnic.
