We spent two nights here and enjoyed our stay hugely.
The secluded B&B, the former lightkeepers' cottage, is situated beautifully on the clifftop, a short walk down from the lighthouse itself. The view of the ocean from the wooden porch is spectacular and a short path takes you down through the trees to a quiet beach.
The house itself, built in 1894, is impressive and well maintained. There are comfortable living rooms downstairs with antique furniture and old photos of the area, available for use by guests. There are also two permanent residents, the two lighthouse cats.
We stayed in the cozy 'lightkeepers room' which had a great view of the light. Other rooms have views of the ocean. All have private bathrooms though the lightkeepers room's was across the hall. Each room also has a torch included for the highly recommended night walk up to the lighthouse.
The lightstation is highly regarded for its 7-course breakfast and we found it excellent. Courses range from fresh fruit to eggs to banana bread to bagels with salmon and cream cheese. Produce is fresh and local. However, the whole meal takes an hour and a half so don't plan for an early departure!
