My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Lighthouse Inn on 9/11/16 and we could not have asked for a more perfect beach setting to celebrate our special day! We stayed on the property for 5 nights and several of our family members and friends rented rooms/cottages for the occasion as well. The rooms were well kept and...

...unfortunately that was not the case. Without a doubt the location and views are beautiful. Outside grounds appeared to be well maintained. The individual who greeted me when I registered was pleasant. Most of the staff would greet you with a smile if your paths crossed. My room was on the second floor. The room itself was quaint. Rug was...

Stayed here for 4 nights visiting from Chesapeake, VA. It was rainy and overcast the first 3 days. We were not able to experience the outdoor activities offered such as the pool and tennis court. Beautiful grounds with fire pit outside next to the sea wall. Excellent customer service in the main building. We stayed in Carriage House room 64....

I've lost count of the number of times my family and I have come here. We originally came because the location is perfect for those who want both proximity to the beach and relative seclusion on the Cape. We keep coming back because of the hospitality and comfort. And we recently had dinner here for the first time in a...

Stayed for a wedding and left wanting to come back! We we greeted at check in like we were family. When we arrive in our room we were amazed at how cozy the room was. The wedding was amazing overlooking the water but the reception was outstanding. The staff was anywhere you needed them and so pleasant to be with....

Unfortunately, all the Lighthouse Inn has going for it is it's location. Set on beautiful West Dennis beach, the views, sunrises and sunsets are beautiful. Accomodations: room furniture and amenities are standard fare. Utilitarian - with no extra's - not even an extra blanket! Towels and sheets are "thin" - no other way to describe them. This particular room had...

The positives of this hotel are the location and setting, right on a small strip of beach in West Dennis. The negatives are many, mostly the dated interior and room. We were put in the Carriage House area of the hotel and our room was basic, to say the least. Extremely loud air con, broken toilet flushing mechanism (which was...

We stayed here for a night for a friend's wedding. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable. The staff was so accommodating and friendly. Because of an injury, I recently had to start using crutches. They moved our room much closer to the main lodge and site of the wedding to make it easier for me....

We stayed here for the weekend for our friends wedding on a nearby beach. Very pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for! The basic rooms were clean and roomy. One of the small cabins was very cozy and well put together. For the reception; the food was fantastic, the drinks were great (though $$), and the staff was...

After reading most of the reviews, I felt that I would just settle for the accommodations to be on site for my BFF's daughters wedding. We were pleasantly surprised upon arrival to have excellent service and an impressive Cape Cod aura to the Inn and it's surroundings. We arrived earlier than check-in, but we were able to use any amenities....
