A bit tough to reach from certain angles

Right now surrounding construction makes it a bit tough to reach from certain directions, but the lighthouse itself is cute and worth a photo op.

Make sure you check the schedule. Worthwhile to go inside and get the tour, which is given by volunteer docents.

Pathway currently closed to walk up to it, but it was nice to admire from afar! Beautiful park next door with a dog park as well!

Very cool old lighthouse on Hudson River. Beautiful views of Hudson Valley and Tappan Zee Bridge. Great place to watch new bridge construction.

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..

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.
