Saugerties Lighthouse; Saugerties, NY

Travel time: About two hours from NYC by car
A historic watchtower on the Hudson River doubles as a quaint bed-and-breakfast on weekends (Thursdays--Sundays). Maintained by live-in keepers Mandy Lamb and Patrick Landewe, the old-fashioned residence welcomes overnighters in two guest rooms best suited for couples. During your stay, you can tour the lighthouse, walk along scenic trails or, if it's summer, go on boating excursions. Reservations are full until November, but keep checking the B&B's site to swoop in on any cancellations. 845-247-0656, $225 per night.
