Our room at the Lookout Building room 60 was very nice. One king bed and one full size bed fit three adults. There is a refrigerator and coffee maker in the room. Full bath. Daily maid service unless you opt out. Comfortable and clean. Not beachside or ocean view but short walking distance. Good buffet breakfast for guests during shoulder season. Grounds are kept well.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Lighthouse Inn. The staff did a great job of respecting Covid safety protocols. A plexiglass window at the front desk, specific entrances and exits into the main lodge reception area and restaurant, masks, and our respect for privacy was honored as we declined housekeeping while keeping our room a "bubble." Now to the fun stuff. Gorgeous older property with lovely views of the shoreline and sunsets. Courteous staff. There is a free breakfast. It was nothing amazing, but it was fine. The pool was heated which was nice as the weather has cooled off. The Inn is near several restaurants and stores in the West Dennis area, including an awesome gourmet custom-made donut shop. Don't know what it's like in the summer, but for a fall getaway while it was still open for the end of the season. Definitely worth considering for next year!

We originally had our wedding scheduled for May, Bill made rescheduling our date as easy as possible. For our new date in August, Bill worked with us to ensure all COVID guidelines were met so that us and all of our guests could enjoy the day without worry. On the weekend of our wedding, a tropical storm was coming up the coast and we were very worried about being able to keep the ceremony outside. Bill, again, came through for us and monitored the weather all morning, and had contingency plans in place in case we had to make a switch at the last minute. Luck was on our side and we were able to keep the ceremony outside as planned. The food for both our cocktail hour and dinner was amazing. The staff made the entire evening flow wonderfully. I would highly recommend The Lighthouse Inn for anyone looking for a beach wedding on Cape Cod!

It was our first trip to the area and the choices are OVERWHELMING. We were very happy with this selection, the value, and beachfront location. I especially appreciated the reservation clerk who helped me select a room that fit my budget and gave us what we wanted, we emailed a number of times and spoke on the phone. I really love that the pool was HEATED and had a wind enclosure, it was very windy the whole time. The grounds are expansive and you can stroll sit on the lawn with a drink, sit on the deck, or even in front of your room room. Main building is very elegant and has a lot of charm,. Loved the waiters who brought me breakfast, workers seem happy, and loyal. Our room was large, and in good condition with upscale decor. If I had to nit pick, I slammed my thumb several times trying to open the fridge, the cabinet it sits in is problematic. All in all this place offered the Cape Cod charm we were hoping for.
