Awake To 360-Degree Scenic Views At This Unique Lighthouse Replica In Virginia
Lighthouses have always been a point of interest in Virginia. Our state boasts many of these historic structures, most of which you can tour via our lighthouse road trip. However, few people realize there’s a lovely lighthouse replica that serves as an overnight accommodation for visitors to Smithfield Station. In fact, it’s the only authentic lighthouse accommodation on the East Coast. How incredible is that? In addition to beautiful decor, the Lighthouse boasts 360-degree views of the lovely coastal landscape.
