My fiance and I stayed at the Beaconlight for a very short weekend away and were very pleased! We stayed in the off season so it was great value for our money. We were switched rooms when we got in, and stayed at the Long Point instead of the Wood End. Never really explained why but we didnt mind. The... More

The good points A beautiful property set in the ideal location. Clean, pristine with some lovely touches. Beaconlight came highly recommeneded by friends who had stayed there. One of the owners is charming and delightful. Sadly, the same can not be said for the other who we found to be astonishingly rude. Bad points This guesthouse promotes itself as being... More

We booked this guesthouse after reading some of the good reviews on trip advisor. There are times when you're not sure whether to read the terrible one's or not. Fortunately for us, I can say we have a very pleasant stay here and were made to feel welcome by the owners. We had arrived a little early, but were able... More

The Beaconlight Bed & Breakfast is located just one block away from Commercial Street and the “P-Town” experience. The entry and reading area are impeccably decorated. The rooms have been recently decorated in bold tasteful colors. Although the website boasts fireplaces, I only saw a cast iron unit in the lobby. The rooms are quite small considering the price and... More

My friend and I chose the Cape Ann room because it boasted of a king size bed and a working fireplace. No where in the advertisement did it state that you could not have a fire in the fall season. I mentioned it to the polite young man who showed us our room after our 3:00 arrival that there was... More

First time in PTown for Labor Day Weekend 2013 and booking last minute the only thing we found was the Sankaty room at the Beaconlight Guesthouse. Very cozy is the right term to use since the room is very small but comfortable with a nice restroom. The room was located on the first floor and had its own private entrance... More

I stayed here on my honeymoon for a week and I cannot tell you how horrible the owner was. He was rude, not very helpful with anything, gave me a dirty look every time I ask him sometime. Locked up the kitchen and ice machine so nobody could get ice at 10 o'clock at night. This is a resort town!... More

We were able to make last minute reservations for a 2 night stay in mid-summer. We were very happy with the tasteful accommodations, the generous breakfast, the beautiful garden flowers and the helpful info offered by a pleasant staff, Gayle. The location was fairly quiet and very accessible to the beaches, the restaurants and the shops. Be sure to use... More

This BB is beautiful, clean and lies just 100 m from Commercial street. It is also close to a bike-rental and a supermarket. We liked our room, but it was quite small for the price we paid - there was hardly any room for our bags. We were received by the owner Keith, who, unfortunately, isn't the friendliest kind of...
