My husband and I recently returned from a very long two night stay at the Cape Anguille Lighthouse Inn. Where do I begin?! It looks as though the Inn was once a large open structure and recently converted into an inn by the placement of a handful of very thin room partitions. Basically, there didn't appear to be any sound proofing between the rooms and it was very loud when all 4 rooms were occupied. The website states it is a peaceful place to rest. It would certainly be a peaceful place if you were to sleep in a tent by the ocean, but a far cry from peaceful when all 4 rooms are filled. The second night we were excited to be the only people staying at the inn. We figured we were guaranteed a good night sleep. At 11pm two of the 3 vacant room had the clock radio alarm go off. The music was very loud and lasted until 2am. The Innkeeper does not stay at the Inn, so we were left to deal with the loud music on our own. The windows in our room had been painted closed with the exception of one. Therefore, we were unable to hear the ocean waves from our room and to crawl into the other rooms and unplug the clock alarms! I think it might even be illegal to have windows that don't open-fire safety issue? Anyway, the continental breakfast consisted of bread, old moldy fruit, and cereal. The one problem was the milk was put on ice the night before at around 9:30pm. In the morning the ice was long gone and the milk was room temperature. The toaster was broken and there wasn't anyone there to help. Apparently, the innkeeper doesn't arrive in the mornings either. There is a structure being restored right next to the Inn and construction started around 7am, so much for that peaceful morning start!
I would recommend a drive to visit the lighthouse, but recommend against staying at the Inn.
