Hotel: Lighthouses, multiple locations across U.S. and Canada.

Description: Many working U.S. and Canadian lighthouses aren't retired. They're doing double-duty as inns, hostels and bed-and-breakfasts. Apply to volunteer for a week as a lighthouse keeper at Lake Michigan's Big Sable Point Lighthouse, stay overnight at the Rose Island Lighthouse near Newport, R.I., or sleep at a lighthouse-turned-hostel at California's Pigeon Point Lighthouse Hostel. Check these Web listings for more ideas.

Rates: Rates depend on the lighthouse amenities and location, but simpler accommodations are a steal.
