Great Lakes Seaway Trail, NY-PA; Dec. 3, 2012 -- The enduringly popular daytime television game show The Price is Right is set to feature Braddock Point Lighthouse in Hilton, NY, in a Lighthouses Around the World vacation getaway showcase prize early in 2013.

The 4.5 million viewers of The Price is Right will learn about Braddock Point Lighthouse, one of 30 historic and replica structures found on the 518-mile-long Great Lakes Seaway Trail National Scenic Byway along the St. Lawrence River, Lake Ontario, Niagara River and Lake Erie in New York and Pennsylvania.

Owners Donald and Nandy Town operate the historic lighthouse built in 1896 as a luxury Bed & Breakfast Inn. The rooms of working light are beautifully-appointed with period antiques. The showcase prize will include overnight accommodations in the Victorian-style lighthouse keeper’s home.

‘We are excited to be asked to participate in this special Price is Right showcase that will reach so many millions of viewers. We are never surprised at the number of people this light attracts, but the television exposure will certainly keep us tremendously busy next summer,’ Nandy said.

The Towns offer a special incentive to anyone who mentions the Great Lakes Seaway Trail when making their reservation.

‘The Great Lakes Seaway Trail has brought us visitors from literally around the world. The byway leads right to our door and we have welcomed people from Poland, Russia, Hawaii, and all across America,’ says Donald (in photo above), who occasionally appears in authentic lighthouse keeper uniform at the lighthouse that is open from mid-May to mid-September.

Great Lakes Seaway Trail President and CEO Mike Bristol said, ‘We share the Town’s excitement at the opportunity to inspire The Price is Right’s huge audience to discover their fabulous bed and breakfast and to come travel the Great Lakes Seaway Trail byway.’

The Price is Right episode with Braddock Point Lighthouse is expected to air January 15, 2013. -30-
