“Loved it!”
Reviewed 23 August 2007

We recently had a mini reunion here with my husband's sister and his aunt. With a three bedroom condo for the four of us, this was an ideal setup giving us lots of room and also some privacy at night. Even though the weather was great we used the gas fireplace on a cool morning. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils/pans etc and we loved being able to do our own cooking. We picked up some fresh halibut and oysters at Jimella's (in Klipsan) which was delicious with the basil aioli we also picked up there. It's just about a hundred yard walk down a path through the sea grass to an amazing sandy beach. We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets from there. Being away from the crowds of the main village of Long Beach it was quiet and relaxing. We didn't use the pool, but it did look inviting. This is a great place for two or three couples sharing or a family group. Sharing the cost and doing your own cooking saves a LOT of $$$.

We held a family reunion at the resort - my husband and I spent a long weekend last year looking for a Washington coast site that could handle our group and were just about to head to Oregon when someone suggested we look at the Lighthouse Resort. We had dismissed it while driving by because they have several small 1950's vintage hotel rooms right by the highway which aren't very appealing. But when you drive past those units toward the ocean you see several modern buildings along the coast.

The location was great. You are far enough from the highway that you don't hear it - but you do hear the ocean. Our family rented a variety of unit sizes and all were similarly maintained and furnished.

Because the units were staggered in the buildings, all units had some view but the end units had the best views - and you reserve specific units (e.g. not just an ocean view unit , but #606, for example.)

As others stated, you can bring pets (for an additional fee) and many guests do. All the dogs I saw on the property were on leashes and I didn't see evidence of anyone not picking up after their pet. But if you are allergic to dogs, this might not be a good place for you.

There is a nice indoor pool and exercise area near the office as well as two gas BBQ's for guests to use and a meeting room you can rent.

We stayed 4 nights and there was no housekeeping service. If you want fresh towels, you must request them.

The main thing that we wished the resort had was window screens on all windows and the sliding glass doors (some units had screens on the sliding doors and some didn't.)

All in all, it was a wonderful location and everyone enjoyed being at the ocean. We would stay here again.

I must say, my wife and I didn't know what to expect. After driving through Long Beach, it was wonderful to be at a location set by itself. The view overlooking the sea grasses to the waters edge was breathtaking. We would make coffee in the room in the morn. and take the short walk to the water and just totally chill. At low tide sand dollars are to be found slightly south of the property at the waters egde. There are alot of people with pets, actually we might have been the only ones without, but it was never an issue. All was extremely clean and quiet. Don't miss the Depot for dinner. Possibly the best food I have ever had. Also, Dooger's for lunch is a must. Too, you have to experience driving on the beach. There are different access points and you can drive for miles, get off, and drive into town. Really alot of fun. After looking at the other properties, The Lighthouse is without a doubt the best.

This resort is north of the town of Long Beach, Wa - a quaint little beach town with lots of summer activities. The resort has staggered the rooms so that each room can see the ocean. Just dunes and dune grass separate you from the ocean. Larger rooms are townhouse style with 1 bedroom upstairs and 2 downstairs. The smaller rooms are on 1 floor, either upper or lower. Dogs are welcomed as long as the owners clean up after them. When we were there, a brand new indoor pool and spa were being constructed. Can't wait to go back next year!!

  • Liked — It is newer and allows dogs
  • Disliked — nothing
  • Tips/Secrets — book ahead for summer
