An interesting visit. Double check before you go. Also check the location on the computer or GPS. Hard to find the first time. Especially if you have seen the lighthouse from the south. The first time we went for a scheduled tour (2014) it was locked and no one showed up. This time the guide arrived 15 minutes late. So... More

It was really hard to find. Most villagers around would not even know about it. Also, there isn't any information in booklets..

Nice lighthouse that is easily accessible. The lighthouse is in walking distance of Tarrytown train station.

The small park near the lighthouse costs $4 for parking. We thought we might be able to walk along the shore and visit the light house but it is all close off and there is no place to walk.

The location for the lighthouse provided by google.com was completely wrong. It directed us to a neighborhood. It was only when we went to dinner at the Tavern did we locate the lighthouse. We drove around and were not able to find the access to it. We even double checked the Sleepy Hollow web site for directions but were unable... More

It was a sunny day in January that we found this park and lighthouse. It was wonderful. You could see the Hudson and all of the barges and construction going on. They are rebuilding the Tappan Zee Bridge. If you looked up the Hudson you could see NYC. It was very nice.

This light house is right by the water and has some good views. Nothing is fancy and lighthouse is very simple and you need to go to Sleepy Hollow to access it. Surrounding areas are very deserted and don't look well maintained. This area need some attention for landscaping.

Signage to lighthouse not clear. We wound up in park with a long walk to lighthouse with no guarantee it would be open. No people around, no visitor amenities, park nearby had locked bathrooms. Go in summer, not fall :-(

It is pretty cool as far as lighthouses go but am not sure I would travel to Tarrytown just to see it. Maybe a good stroll in nicer weather and a way to work off a meal you just had. Apart from that, pretty standard lighthouse stuff.

We had a chance to visit this lighthouse and I must say, what a great spot. While it was a little hard to find (follow the concrete wall around the old industrial site) once there we were able to get some fantastic shots of the lighthouse, both during the day and at sunset. The backdrop of the Tappan Zee Bridge... More
