The Anchorlight Bed & Breakfast is truly wonderful! We stayed 2 nights and had an amazing time! Maggie and Tug are so sweet and you can tell they really love what they do. This is the best place in AL!

My husband and I stayed in the TS Fowler Room at the top of the lighthouse and we loved it! We went for a mini weekend honeymoon after our Sunday wedding, and our hosts, Maggie and John, could not have been more hospitable. They made sure we had snacks and drinks at the top of the lighthouse, explained where to... More

Maggie and Tug are wonderful people. Easy going, good Christian couple. We stayed in the TS Fowler room in the lighthouse. We had full access to the top of the lighthouse as well. They took us out on the tug boat for an evening lake cruise and showed us some pretty cool sights! Maggie made a wonderful breakfast this morning... More

I surprised my man with a birthday trip here and from the innkeepers to the food to the views to our room, everything was wonderful! We got a tug boat ride across the lake for lunch the next day and the breakfast was wonderful.

When we arrived, we were warmly greeted by Maggie who gave us keys and showed us around. The room below the lighthouse had a small fridge which she so kindly stocked with pop and water, as well as snack food on the counter. It had two beds and a nice couch. The bathroom had a shower and water came out... More

You don't find many opportunities to sleep in a lighthouse! We had the Fowler room which also includes the lamp room. We had a very pleasant stay. The bathroom very creatively shaped like a tug boat. It is small but worked out just fine. The room size was sufficient. We enjoyed the evening and morning in the lamp room and... More

Atmosphere was awesome. Breakfasts were amazing. View is magnificent. It was nice to stay in a lighthouse and not have to drive too far away. Maggie and Tug are very kind. Looking forward to going back in the fall.

“TS Fowler room grants you access to the top of the lighthouse.”

“I would choose the Fowler room over the Barnacle because of the Fowler room including access to the Lamp room.”
 of 5 bubbles iluv2scrap, 28 Jun 2015 | Read review
“Lighthouse room has great views and is cosy- the other room (there are only 2) has more space and a small kitchen.”
 of 5 bubbles Hello_Bamboo, 2 Jan 2015 | Read review
“either room, the T.S. Fowler room or the barnacle room are the only 2 rooms available, the Barnacle room is good if you want a kitchen, and want to accommodate more than 4 people, not as many steps as the T.S. Fowler room, which includes the lamp room, lots of steps, but soooooo totally worth it for the view and the totally unique experience!!”
