Once the guiding light for ships, lighthouses have reawakened as chic and homely hotels, all featuring an amazing waterfront view. Creative minds and innovative interior decorators have reincarnated the cold and bland lighthouses into a cozy and hospitable home for captain’s and their ship mates. These top lighthouse hotels are found throughout the world thanks to the lighthouse being an integral part of historic existence.

Corsewall Lighthouse, Scotland
This luxurious lighthouse offers iconic views off the North Rhinns of Galloway shoreline. Giantic crashing waves crash into the rocky shoreline, but not need to fear, these private suites and rooms keep guests warm and safe in their comfortable high thread count sheets. The lighthouse is located away from noise, with the exception of the roaring ocean, but offers the best views of 20 acres of one of the best shorelines in Scotland. Take a walk up the spiral staircase to revisit history with modern day luxury and class.
