My husband and I stayed at the Inn for only 1 night on our 8 day trip to PEI. It is indeed a great place to stay - there's only about 24 rooms so you have the beach almost to yourself - all the rooms face the beach and water, but the 2nd floor rooms give you a much better view. Our room was very nice - good amenities - but having the balcony overlooking the beach was what made it for us. We also found that this is one of the rare lighthouses that isn't red and white - altho all the red and white ones are distinct from one another. The provincial park is very close by and while it seemed full, the beach was never crowded - at least after 3 pm when we arrived. The breakfast in the am was great - really fresh blueberries and strawberries, hard boiled eggs, many cereals, oatmeal, muffins (they were great), danish, etc., etc. The one drawback for tourists from the US as we were - you can eat dinner at the lighthouse or you can drive for we don't know how long to find another place for dinner. My best guess is 30 miles or so. This is in the northern end of the island and it does get more remote out here. Actually, dinner was fine - choices were only 3 but meal was cooked well and the server/chef was a wonderful lady who was so pleasant and nice to talk with. I wouldn't let the dinner situation stop me from staying at this Inn again. It was a treat. I'm attaching a picture of the lighthouse w/inn as well as the great sunset we had that night while the blue/full moon arose on the other side of the inn. You can't beat that!!!
