Stayed here for one night in the Lighthouse (no 22). As with previous travellers, the views of the bay, inlets and outying islands are super. We had panoramic views from our bedroom and from the top floor of the lighthouse and its 'crows nest'. That said our experience and view of the resort differ somewhat from some of the previous feedback. The online video of Sebasco Harbour Resport does not marry up to what is actually there waiting for you. True we were staying at the end of the season BUT the whole resort has an air of shabbiness though the staff are hard working and offer good customer service. The reception, lighthouse and pilothouse were tired both on the inside and out. The lighthouse public areas were beyond shabby chic, scuff marks and dirt on the walls, worn carpets, the top floor and crows nest in need of repaint & varnish. The paper cups for making tea and coffee, the easy chairs, the victims of supporting many a big bottom in need of re-upholstering, the ripped wall paper (in room 22) together did not exude 3 star comfort let alone 4 or 5 star comfort. We had dinner in the Pilothouse - the last night of the season. Though many of the wines and some dishes were unavailable, the service and greeting from Karen was excellent and possibly the most genuine of all we have experienced on this trip through New England. The food was good though unexceptional, the scallops in white chocolate were tasty as was the lobster, though dessert - a dark chocolate flan clearly not made in house was poor. We also breakfasted in the Pilothouse but sadly it was luke warm when it eventually arrived and did not have the side dish of sausages we had ordered. To be candid, the waitress seemed to be more interested in chatting to the locals at the adjacent table discussing the forthcoming wedding of the daughter of the owner of Sebasco Harbour than looking after its guests! So in conclusion for European travellers & readers this is no 4-5 star resort. If you are expecting something along the lines of De Vere hotels and resports or Leading Hotels of the World then you will be disappointed. As regular travellers across Europe, Asia, Canada and the US, this is a good 2-3 star resort that was probably first class when originally built in the 80's but is now in need of some TLC to halt the decline.
