Yorkshire, United Kingdom

Let all of your cares sail away at this charming lighthouse in Yorkshire, United Kingdom. Galatea at the Whitby Lighthouse is one of two charming cottages offered to rent from Rural Retreats. The cottage can fit five guests and is close to great beaches, fishing and mountain biking.

Pulaski, New York

Less than an hour from Syracuse and about five from New York City, the Selkirk Lighthouse, built in 1838, still guards the Salmon River harbor at Lake Ontario. The property accommodates eight people and starts at $325 a night.

Jacumba, California

This Airbnb lighthouse rental, located in the In-Ko-Pah Gorge area in Jacumba, California, offers access to Boulder Park and 99 acres of private desert property. Guests can sleep anywhere in the Tower on futons or couches (bedding available). They also have the option to use the guest cabin with household furnishings, bathroom and kitchen, or they can sleep under the desert stars.

Ellerslie, Canada

Want to get away from it all? At this Airbnb rental, you'll have privacy on a secluded three-acre private peninsula with 800 feet of waterfront. Book this three-bedroom cottage, attached to an authentic, decommissioned, three-story lighthouse, for you and up to seven other guests.

Stoke Ferry, United Kingdom

Technically, this is an old mill house, but it's magical all the same. Not only is the outside of this rental unique, but so is the design inside - all seven floors of it! Just a two-hour drive northeast of London, The Old Mill features a large garden, outdoor pool and plenty of charm in Stoke Ferry.

And don't let the price tag of $529 per night deter you. With seven bedrooms and three bathrooms, this property can accommodate 16+ people. So even if you had a group of 15 stay here, it'd come out to about $35 a person - not bad!

Point Arena, California

With unparalleled views of the rugged North Coast, The Keeper's Room at the Lighthouse is the perfect romantic retreat for two. The private room and bathroom are located in the back of the head lightkeeper's house, which formerly housed the head lightkeeper and his family when the lighthouse still required onsite management. While you won't be actually sleeping in the lighthouse, free tours of the lighthouse and museum are included.

Norfolk, United Kingdom

Feel the ocean breeze and take in the views at The Link cottage at Cromer Lighthouse. Accommodating two guests, The Link is one of two semi-detached cottages at the lighthouse, located about a mile from the town of Cromer, which offers shops, pubs and local seafood - notably, the excellent Cromer crab sandwiches. The original Cromer Lighthouse was built in 1680, but the present lighthouse, a white octagonal tower, was built in 1833 and converted to automatic operation in 1990.

Burlington, Canada

For only $81 a night, this lighthouse accommodates two people and offers views of the harbor. It's also close to walking trails, a playground and a salmon river.

Isle of Wight, United Kingdom

About three hours from London, take in seaside views at St. Catherine's Lighthouse in Niton, Isle of Wight.

Plus, just a 10-minute walk up the hill will land you in a real ale pub.
