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.
