The Lighthouse is a very unique 1874 structure situated in the middle of the Hudson River, between the towns of Hudson, NY and Athens, NY. The lighthouse has been the subject of artworks, photographs and magazine covers. The very first cover was the Saturday Evening Post dated December 26, 1946.
The lighthouse has a nice size deck that can be set up with patio furniture or 2 long picnic tables. From the deck, one sees the towns of Hudson and Athens, boats and ships sailing by and gorgeous sunrise and sunset views.
Back in the 1800-1900s, lightkeepers and their families have lived in the lighthouse for many years and their children grew up there.
You can find layout of the lighthouse at Hudson Lights. First floor is the kitchen and living area. Second floor, are the bedrooms. And there's a tiny spiral staircase that goes to the very top of the lighthouse where the beacon is. The top balcony gives you a wonderful 360 view of the mighty Hudson River. Drone videography is permitted.
The price per hour includes boat transportation to the lighthouse and back. Part of your payment is a donation to the lighthouse which can be tax-deductible. A separate insurance needs to be provided by you for production and damage.
You can message us if you need to know more and would like to request for a tour of the lighthouse. Minimal donation will be required for the lighthouse's maintenance, upkeep and boat transport. The Lighthouse is typically closed during the winter. Hudson river winter is beautiful. A location shoot can be arranged but proper planning and logistics is highly important and regular rates do not apply.
