I love this place and go every year, some times more then once a year. It is open way to shot of a time span. there needs to be some kind of table in the setting room. there are 2 kitchen tables but with 13-16 people, (6 different families). There was no place to play a game or cards unless it was in the kitchen. Maybe a card table could be added, that way it can be put up only when needed. I have always met very nice people and made new friends when I stay here.

This was a totally awesome experience.Our host, Terry was absolutely fantastic. I have always wanted to stay in a lighthouse! I woke in the morning and it was great fun feeling like a lighthouse keeper’s wife cooking breakfast on a propane stove with the fog horn blasting in the background. (Well, except we weren’t up all night actually tending the light and we found out later that the fog horns we heard were from passing ships, not our fog horn house!) But it was great experience all around.

Hierher werde ich bei der nächstbesten Gelegenheit zurück kommen. Die Lage direkt amOntariosee, dort wo man die Seeschiffe am Übergang zum St. Lawrence Strom vorüberziehen sehen kann, hat mich begeistert. Diese Lage ist besonders zu empfehlen um mal ein paar Tage absolut auszuspannen, aber auch um in die Umgebung der 1000 Islands einzutauchen.

It was only the 2nd day on the job for Terry and he was a wonderful host. Efficient, accommodating and friendly. Clearly his years with the National Park Service have prepared him very well for this position.

I am new to the hostel family, but my two visits to tibbets point hostel have been the best times. The hostel is like being at home, and the staff both times have made you feel very special. The location is convenient to travel, peaceful and relaxing atmosphere,and beautiful views of sunset. I will be back again next year. Wish it could stay open a little later into the fall season as foliage time would be beautiful there
