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

My husband, 5 year old grandson and myself had the pleasure of staying here for one night on our adventure to Prince Edward Island. If you are coming this way do stay here. It is a unique place to stay and our grandson was delighted to stay in a Lighthouse. Chuck and all the staff were more than accomadating. We... 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

Warmer water, beautiful beach to walk and collect sea glass. Great place to dig for clams. The lighthouse is beautiful but you have to pay to go on the top of it. The stairs leading to it can scare children off. It was the most beautiful lighthouse I have seen in the maritimes, and it has an Inn there where... More

We have visited this back in 2008 and really enjoyed the museum and view from the top. As I recall it was not a taxing hike up to the top. It is still in decent shape, but we got there after it closed on our trip to the north cape. There is a very nice view from the top of... More

Great stop if you're doing all or part of the North Cape Coastal Drive. The red sand, water, and lighthouse views were beautiful. My husband and I traveled to this spot in the off-season, mid-October with our miniature dachshund. While exploring the coastline we only bumped into one other couple. It was a peaceful outing! It appeared that during the... More
