I have always wanted to stay in a lighthouse and the experience did not disappoint ! We stayed in the Keeper's Quarters of this lighthouse, built in 1867. The windows in this room are low and small so not really a view but you can hear the ocean since you are right on the beach. You can also stay in the tower room in the lighthouse. All the rooms in the attached in have patios or balconies with great views. The museum in the lighthouse is interesting and well kept. You can climb 72 steps (not all in one climb) right to the top where the light is and the views are fabulous ! On each floor there is part of the museum and lots of interesting artifacts and information. The continental breakfast is wonderful with plenty of choices.

Room Tip: Only 2 rooms in the lighthouse, 12 rooms in the attached inn.

This is certainly one of those "must do" things while in PEI. Stay at this Lighthouse in the Keepers Quarters is a life time experience. Climb to the top of the lighthouse and see forever during the day and the light at night. Highly recommended. House staff are very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast in the morning is filling and fresh. Unspoiled beach to yourself for shelling. See the family of red fox great you when entering the property. Location is kind of out of the way - -but oh so worth the small drive.

Room was clean and beds were so comfortable. Great to be able to open the windows and fall asleep to the sounds and f the ocean. Great place to watch a sunset. Great access to the provincial park. The self tour of the lighthouse museum was very interesting. The climb to the top provided great views.

We liked the situation of the accommodation i.e. it's right on the beach. The beach itself was fairly nice and expansive enough for walking. It's not as inviting as the Caribbean. We did not swim but enjoyed seeing others swimming and building sand castles. The hotel is basically a motel. We had a room on the second floor and furthest away from the lighthouse so it is the most private unit. The room is large with two queen sized beds and the unit has a nice balcony facing the ocean. The bathroom is a bit of a dark hole and needs to be updated. The place felt clean, but, tired looking. The breakfast is the area that needs the most improvements. First, the space is very small so it always felt crowded no matter when we showed up. A couple of times we went and took what we needed and had the breakfast on our balcony. Second, the selection of food was below average (considering we paid more than $200 per night). The only protein was boiled eggs which had to be warmed up in a pot with hot water. There were some cereals, bagels, breads, pastries, and some fruits, such as, apples, oranges and blueberries, but, no bananas. It would have been nice to have 2-3 kinds of cold cuts and maybe some delicious island biscuits. Within walking distance, there is a restaurant called "The Catch". This is the only restaurant around. They do not even have a grocery store. If you plan to visit this part of Prince Edward Island, a couple of nights would be more than enough. Sure, you can drive everywhere from there, but, the dining options are not great and there are not a lot to do in the immediate area.

The people at West Point Lighthouse Inn was very friendly. I like the fact that we could make tea for ourselves before bed and there were always someone at the desk. If you want internet connection, you need to stay in a room near the front desk. As our room was the furthest from the Lighthouse, the internet connection was nil. The Lighthouse museum is worth a visit especially if you are staying there, it is free and you can go anytime you want so after closing is nicer because you probably get the place all to yourselves.

Room Tip: The room furthest from the lighthouse on the second floor would be the most private room, but, there is no internet connection there.

We stayed in the lighthouse in the Keepers Quarters. Wonderful and memorable experience. It is super clean and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. We wanted the experience of staying in the lighthouse but they also have rooms attached with views of the ocean which are breathtaking. The location is remote, quiet, peaceful and beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
