My husband and I were getting married in Maine and found this lovely gem of a place...we will definitely be returning! We have stayed in many hotels over the years and this one by far exceeds the level of customer service we have seen. The Inn is run by a wonderful team of people, all focused on customer service!

We visited the Lighthouse Inn for 2 nights in July and had a great experience. We stayed in room 26. We had two private decks, one overlooking the pool, the other with ocean views. Our room was well appointed and very clean. Breakfast was basic-muffins, yogurt, cereal, coffee and juices, nothing fancy, but fit the bill. We'll be back.

We had a nice stay at the Lighthouse Inn, the room reminded me of our first home- more like a summer cabin than a hotel. The bed was comfortable, but the air conditioner was noisy, it had an annoying click that would go on and off in bursts (our 8-year-old had fun dancing to the beat which lightened the mood... More

It pains me to have to write a negative review of this property considering how friendly the staff was, but I feel it is necessary to inform potential guests of our experience. Upon check in, the staff immediately charged my credit card for the entire stay, before we even saw the room. It was not a deposit for incidentals like... More

Hi Flo, Thank you for your review, but of course, I am so sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy your stay. I do feel it’s important to also share with our reading community, some comments regarding your review: First of all, I’m sorry you didn’t care for the type of AC we use or the size of the TV.

Don't miss out on this gem! Diane, the owner is personable and attentive. The staff is friendly and helpful. The Inn has it all. You are steps from the best beach in area by far and Nubble Lighthouse is a nice walk away! Just book it and thank me later! Happy sunning.

Any family would be very welcomed here. Diane went out of her wsy to make us comfortable and satisfied. Very nice pool and rooms are exceptionally clean. Beach wagons available for hauling our stuff to Long Sands are only one example of over the top consideration for guests.

This is our third summer staying at the Lighthouse Inn - everything keeps getting better & better! The owner, Diane, has a truly natural affinity for making guests feel right at home, and this hospitality shines through to her staff. My three kids & I stayed for two nights along with my mother. We had connecting deluxe rooms that included... More

Our first visit but not our last. Diane and her staff were wonderful, friendly and helpful. Having two teenage boys we enjoyed the double deluxe room......and they loved it. We had plenty of room.

“Ask for a room with a balcony and/or a view. Though truthfully, even without either, Long Sands Beach is a very short walk.”
