The Greens Ledge Lighthouse, a historic beacon that has weathered the waves off the coast of Rowayton, Connecticut since 1902, has recently been restored to its former glory and opened its doors to the public for the first time in its century-old history. The meticulous restoration process, helmed by the Greens Ledge Light Preservation Society, spanned five years, breathing new life into a structure previously listed as 'deteriorated' on the National Register of Historic Places.
From Deterioration to Destination
Today, this iconic landmark stands not just as a testament to maritime history, but also as a unique overnight destination that blends the charm of yesteryears with modern comforts. The lighthouse offers an immersive experience, accommodating up to six guests for private overnight stays and up to fifty for special events, making it a perfect choice for those seeking a distinctive getaway or a unique venue for celebrations.
A Unique Maritime Experience
Guests staying at the lighthouse are treated to 360-degree views of the water and shorelines, a sight to behold especially at sunrise and sunset. The lighthouse itself is equipped with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a fully equipped kitchen, ensuring a comfortable stay.

The seclusion and natural beauty of the landmark, coupled with the tranquil sounds of waves and seabirds, create an atmosphere that is as romantic as it is serene.
