Staff were very nice. You stay in the old lighthouse keepers house. Cost for 5 of us was ok. You have kitchen privelages. But in the heat of summer it is too hot (no a.c.). Only one other person staying in the hostel at the time we were there. It is fun to say that we stayed in a lighthouse....

I would recommend this nice hostel! I could look out my window in the room where I stayed to watch the light from the lighthouse at night! You can sit on benches and watch the sunset with the breeze off of were the St. Lawrence and Lake Ontario meet! You can even swim near the lighthouse! The buildings were built...

If you looked up the word relaxed in the dictionary, you might very well find that someone has posted a picture of Tibbets Point on it. The very definition of soothing, the hostel is exceedingly charming, offers incredible, once in a lifetime type of views, and has warm, friendly people and staff roaming the grounds. This hostel could easily be...

If you enjoy sailing, kayaking, canoeing or fishing, I'm sure you will enjoy this place a lot. It is at the tip of the cape and very secluded. You don't really live in the light house, but next to it, at least. We made an reservation already but still needed to wait for over an hour even though the volunteer...
