    Rehearsal Dinner and Welcome Party

    Our son was married on 9/3/21, the Friday before Labor Day. The night before (9/2/21) we held both a rehearsal dinner and a welcome party for people who had arrived on Cape Cod the night before. Both events were very successful. Between the food, the service, the setting (right on the ocean), I could not have asked for more. Thank you Lighthouse Inn for a beautiful start to our son's wedding weekend. Even if it is just for dinner, we will be back to LightHouse Inn in the near future.

    Pandemic Wedding in June 2021

    We were fortunate enough to find the Lighthouse Inn following our pandemic engagement in Sept 2020, recommended by a close friend whose family member had organized a pandemic wedding there with great success. From the beginning Bill the general manager was responsive and helpful. Our plans changed multiple times over the course of our 7 month planning adventure. Bill was there every step of the way keeping us up to date on restrictions and how that would impact our dream wedding. Come June our wedding had expanded to include more guests and more vendors with the last minute hire of a DJ and Bill couldn’t have been more accommodating. Most of our guests were able to stay on site for a tremendous weekend full of love, great weather, beach time and convenient activities for little ones like the mini golf, playground and pool. Accommodations were clean and conveniently close to the beachfront and each other. We are so grateful for this beautiful experience with the help of Bill, Cari (wedding day coord) and all their staff. We will be back for a family retreat next season!
