This is a real gem in PEI, and I would know as I am a born and raised Islander. I spent my childhood summers in PEI on the famous North Shore beaches and never thought I would want to stay anywhere else on PEI. I was WRONG! The lighthouse is not only an amazing historical building, but a modern, luxurious... More

First time I have ever had the opportunity to visit a lighthouse up close and personal. Made for some great photos and walking along the scenic red shore. Don't walk around in the bushes though, there is poison ivy nearby!

If you're in the area, it's worth the drive out to West Point to see the lighthouse. The local community runs the museum and inn on the site. There are plenty of artifacts and explanatory posters in the lighthouse, giving its history and explaining how it worked over time. One of the rooms at the bottom is set up to... More

Planned to stay here actually, but because of its high price, I stayed elsewhere. However, with its unique design and beautiful beach and scenery, how could we not go there? A very nice drive there with lots to see. It would be nice to stroll along the beach as well. Worth a trip there. May be next time I will... More
