The perfect venue!
If you're looking for a venue, you have found it! The Lighthouse Inn was not only beautiful, but they have the most incredible staff I have ever met! You get your very own contact person who has been planning weddings for a long time. He knows what goes right, what goes wrong, and how to make your day perfect.Sent on 11/16/2020
The location is gorgeous, inside and out. They can accommodate small weddings and large weddings, and they can keep you safe during the pandemic!
The food is incredible - all of my guests were so impressed - I keep hearing that it was the best food they've had at a wedding!
The staff are friendly and kind, and the service is amazing!
The staff also work well with other vendors, and they even have a list of recommendations to help with your planning purposes!
I never dreamed a pandemic wedding could be perfect, but the wonderful staff at the Lighthouse Inn ensured that it was! I am so thankful that we booked the Lighthouse Inn. It was certainly the best wedding we could have imagined!

Simple and beautiful
I booked my wedding here and live about 3 hours away. Emailing was very quick with responses and they provided me with all the information I needed. I came to look at the place and fell in love. They had a wedding set up for a ceremony and we actually got to view it from afar. My first venue I looked at and did not need to see anymore, it is perfect. Can’t wait for the big day.Sent on 09/24/2019

We originally had our wedding scheduled for May, Bill made rescheduling our date as easy as possible. For our new date in August, Bill worked with us to ensure all COVID guidelines were met so that us and all of our guests could enjoy the day without worry. On the weekend of our wedding, a tropical storm was coming up the coast and we were very worried about being able to keep the ceremony outside. Bill, again, came through for us and monitored the weather all morning, and had contingency plans in place in case we had to make a switch at the last minute. Luck was on our side and we were able to keep the ceremony outside as planned. The food for both our cocktail hour and dinner was amazing. The staff made the entire evening flow wonderfully. I would highly recommend The Lighthouse Inn for anyone looking for a beach wedding on Cape Cod!Sent on 10/14/2020
