We cannot thank Bill and his team enough for all the quality service they provided. We live out of town and Bill was great to work with through email and telephone, he is very responsive and gave us a great summary of what to expect. You can tell that he has a lot of experience, our wedding was so smooth, everything went off without a hitch and that was because of Bill's direction. We received many compliments on the food and the staff, especially Spencer who was great to work with. It is a beautiful, historic Cape location and it was so convenient to have the ceremony and reception at the same place. Everything is included in the price, food, linens, etc.. so it is one stop shopping, you don't need to get caterers and party rentals. There is an indoor space to get married should you have inclement weather and there is a discount if you get married on Friday or Sunday. I recommend getting one of the cottages on site, it was great to have a home base right there. They also rent whole houses out of property which is great if you have a lot of people traveling from out of town. We highly recommend the Lighthouse Inn!Sent on 08/03/2016

We cannot say enough good things about Bill and the entire Lighthouse Inn staff. It was incredible to have our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all in one gorgeous spot! The beach setting for our ceremony, deck for cocktails and apps and the DELICIOUS clam bake dinner were simply perfect. Our guests could not stop raving about the entire day.Sent on 09/29/2018
Bill was awesome to work with for the 9 months we spent planning our big day. He was organized, responsive, and kept things moving on the big day.
Getting ready in Room 6 upstairs and knowing my groom and his groomsmen were just two cottages away eased any fears of travel issues. Walking down the deck stairs to the ceremony and meeting Kip's eyes in front of the gorgeous beach is a moment we will never forget.
We spend a lot of time on the Cape and have a family house in South Yarmouth - Lighthouse Inn gave us the ultimate Cape Cod wedding and was a fantastic destination for our guests traveling from out of town. Our wedding was on Friday and most guests stayed until Sunday and we have heard nothing but positive reviews about the various guest rooms and the entire West Dennis area.
Thank you, Bill and team! We will be back!

We had a wonderful time. The manager was flexible and met all of our special requests. The location is right on the water, which made the perfect setting for a beach wedding service. We were lucky to have had perfect weather! The food and service for dinner were great. I have no complaints, just an enjoyable reception all around.Sent on 09/24/2018
