The staff was very friendly and Scott (the manager) went above and beyond. We had our own little patio with a table and two chairs. The breakfast was great! Everything was very clean and the atmosphere was... More

My husband and I stayed here August 28th to September 2nd. and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Loved having a king size bed and a balcony overlooking the beach. The employees were friendly and helpful. Make sure you climb to the top of the lighthouse for a great view of the beach and also for $10.00 extra, book a room... More

If it is a calm and relaxing accommodation located on the ocean with access to a quiet beach and gorgeous views you are looking for, the West Point Lighthouse Inn is the place to stay when visiting the western Prince County region of Prince Edward Island. The inn rooms are updated, comfortable and very clean. The complimentary continental breakfast is... More

Second trip. I cannot get over the location, the room (26 this time), the view, the water a few feet away, the attentive service, the cleaniness and... meeting the new general manager, Scott J. Smith, who made our stay even better. He is a pro! Thanks again for the wonderful stay. See you next year Scott.

Very nice views of the beach and surrounding area, nice museum with very informed and courteous staff. Stairs to the upper two levels are very steep, especially the last set of stairs to the light itself. Very hot up there too!

We had the pleasure of staying in the Keeper's quarters. Very spacious and nice. I would recommend staying in the historic lighthouse if possible for a truly unique experience. Museum is outstanding. Staff was exceptional- even called us out of concern when we were running late for arrival. I would highly recommend!

I am not a light house person, but I found this very interesting. You get to go to the top(light) of the house. Great view. Lots of information on the history of this light house and others on the island. Plan to spend the night at the attached hotel. Staff is very friendly and informative. Scott is really into light...
