This is not a place for people that want to stay social media connected, Internet wired or even to a couch potato! You will want to get out and enjoy the outdoors with the best of hosts if questions or concerns! The hotel has rooms that are from a bygone era, shared bath rooms, so expect to wait your turn...

We really enjoyed our quiet little weekend with the Gibsons. Great family!! They have access to inlet and waves crashing on other side of Lake. Fire pit and swing. Had to share a bathroom with other guests but ever an issue. Screen door constantly shutting woke us up a few times but overall very pleasant. No air conditioning. ... so...

This is Washington Island, so don't expect luxury and matching furniture. However, this is one of my favorite places to stay. The grounds are well kept and beautiful (you could easily fill up your camera taking photos here). If you need a break from technology this is the place to go (pretty much anywhere on the island). I read a...

We brought our wiener dog and he had a blast running around the grounds and on the beach. Such an amazing laid back place! Don't miss the sunset on the beach with a picture perfect bonfire! Cabin was clean and warm in late October. Owners are friendly and very helpful.

Clean and tidy, lots of games available for evening entertainment. Short walk to beach to watch a stunning sunset. If you want a quiet place with out all the commotion, this is it. Very well maintained older home turned Inn and well maintained landscape. Friendly and respectful owners

We rented out room #2 in the main house, which was right next to the bathrooms. We had a view of the harbor.It was a very small room, queen size bed big enough for two. But you honestly don't need a lot in there because the lawn and the land they have around will make you want to be outside...

We stayed in the main lodge where we shared a bathroom. The room was clean and nice. The common area has a pool table, tv, movies and a nice supply of books. We especially liked being 100 yards from the beach where we sat and watched the sunset. They also have canoes and kayaks available to use-which we didn't because...

Stayed at the hotel for only one night on 8-4-15. Its a 1870 hotel with a nice comfortable room. The view of the bay is beautiful and quiet. You can use their kayak or canoe. The owners where very friendly and helpful. Definitely worth looking into if you're going to Washington Island.

We love to come to Gibsons and are always delighted by the location and the people. I am always amazed by how renewed we are after time at Gibsons. It is a perfect place for families who want to ride bikes and enjoy the water!

“The rooms in the main house are cheaper but you have to share a bathroom and living quarters. The cabins offer more privacy, but no television.”

“If you have a famikly try an book a cabin or the trailer. The trailer has the best layout for relaxing with three bedrooms, living room, full kitchen, and dining area. Add the nice yard with grills, swing chair, and picinic table and your in for a treat. Book early as this place is always packed in the warm weather,”
