Our family of five just spent 6 nights at The Lighthouse in late September - early October. This was our third visit to the Lighthouse and we loved it again, as always. The deck is right on the water - basically over the water really. Its like sitting on your own private ocean pier. We were able to see dolphins swimming by while sitting and drinking coffee. We walked to the "near" beach and to the big beach down the road and enjoyed both areas very much. Our 8 year old boy, 5 year old girl, and 3 year old boy loved being able to play in the loft and sleep in the bunk bed room. The pictures of the place are nice, but I'm not sure they do it justice. This is a beautiful home. We always hate to leave, but thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
