If you’re an out-of-towner looking to experience the Empire State or are simply one of our residents who’s in need of a relaxing staycation, it isn’t too difficult to find an affordable place where you can rest your head at night. But one thing you won’t be able to find in just any town? A one-of-a-kind Bed & Breakfast that features fascinating history and serene settings that will blow you away. Everything you could dream of and more, this one destination out in Monroe County is a hidden gem hiding in plain sight.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Nestled along the southern shores of Lake Ontario roughly 20-minutes away from Rochester is a destination you may not have known about.
A hidden gem in the town of Hilton, Braddock Point Lighthouse is more than just a historic waterfront location.
Originally built back in 1896, the lighthouse long fell into disrepair until its current owners worked hard on restoring this scenic spot.
Step inside and you'll get to see the stunning staircase that came from the Cleveland Lighthouse during the 1800s when it was under demolition.
Leading you upstairs, once you reach the top you'll have magnificent views of Lake Ontario from the large picturesque windows.
Upstairs you'll find Braddock Point's three rooms that make up the B&B, the Fitzpatrick (shown), Coleman and Milar Suites.
Each room features one bed and is decorated in Victorian antiques that create a cozy atmosphere you'll never want to leave.
The owners of Braddock Point make sure to give you an experience you'll never forget, even creating their own rosewater that they use to keep all of the linens fresh and soft.
One of the only privately owned and fully functioning lighthouses remaining in the United States, you'll love discovering all of the small details that make this place so special.
A homemade breakfast is included with every guest's stay, giving you a warm and welcoming start to each morning that you're here.
When you're not spending time in your gorgeous room, you can enjoy the sunroom downstairs that has huge bay windows that will give you a never-ending view of the water.
A charming piece of our state that not many residents realize exists, the Braddock Point light was turned back on 20 years ago and continues to cast a light on all of the reasons why we love New York.
