HI-Tibbetts Point Lighthouse Hostel occupies a spectacular point overlooking Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River. Hostellers stay in the 1920s lighthouse keeper’s home, located right next door to the iconic Tibbetts Point Lighthouse. Guests enjoy the large waterfront lawn for relaxing, watching ships pass by on the St. Lawrence Seaway, cooking supper on the grill, and enjoying beautiful sunsets over the water,

Found two miles beyond the village of Cape Vincent, New York, the hostel is a great base for exploring the Thousands Islands region and is a favorite of cyclists. Nearby attractions include scenic state parks, boat rides that meander among the Thousand Islands, and historic Sacketts Harbor. Bring your passport! Take Horne’s ferry from Cape Vincent to Wolfe Island; it’s an easy drive or bike ride across the island to the Kingston Ontario ferry. Or cross the Thousand Islands International Bridge into Canada.

HI-Tibbetts Point is perfect for small groups and affordable whole-hostel rental.

Not accessible by public transit.
