Secluded beaches, beautiful stars, and a crisp ocean breeze. This is the best lighthouse we’ve ever stayed in! Very clean, comfy beds, friendly and helpful staff with a wealth of knowledge about local attractions. We never want to leave!

Hi, I am afraid that I will have to agree with Jonathan. PEI is bigger than you think, and you will need to rent a car to get most places. Charlotte town is great to explore, with lots to see and do. You can check local... More
