West Point Lighthouse Beckons You Inn

West Point Lighthouse Inn & Museum is a beacon of warm hospitality and wonder on the North Cape Coastal Drive of Prince Edward Island. It beckons you in to stay awhile with its’ striking black & white stripes, modern 4-star accommodations and the friendliest Lighthouse Innkeeper you will ever meet. Local lighthouse historian, lovingly known as ‘Mrs. Lighthouse’, is close by too, happy to share her passion of the history & mysteries of West Point Lighthouse. I encourage you all to ‘seas the day’ and spend a night, a week, or a month (like some of their regulars do) to live in a lighthouse inn while you explore the serene coastline of the western side of PEI.
