The West Point Lighthouse Inn is among the most recognizable places in the PEI Tourism environment.
The Inn was originally created in 1987 by the West Point Development Corporation (WPDC). In 2009 and after 20+ years in operation the WPDC undertook a project to redevelop their facilities and surrounding area in order to make West Point a leader in the Tourism industry in PEI.
This redevelopment concluded in 2010 with the expansion and complete renovations to the West Point Lighthouse Inn, the upgrading of the West Point Lighthouse Museum, the relocation of the restaurant to a newly created facility on the West Point Harbour and the integration of the facilities with uniform signage, a new boardwalk and a streetscape project.
This work has resulted in a beautiful destination for visitors of all ages.
In 1982, the members of the West Point Development Corporation, a group of enterprising volunteers in western Prince Edward Island, undertook the enhancement of their community for the greater enjoyment of the area’s residents and visitors alike.
The focal point of their efforts was the restoration of historic West Point Lighthouse which at 69 feet is one of the Island’s tallest and most unique. The lighthouse was built in 1875, put into operation in 1876 and manned until 1963 when the keeper, who lived in the attached dwelling, retired. Today the lantern, in a bright red housing atop the tapered tower, operates electrically.
