HI-Tibbetts Point Lighthouse

in the beautiful state of New York

HI-Tibbetts Point Lighthouse Hostel is located at the point where Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River meet. After the lighthouse became fully automated in 1976, the Victorian-era lightkeeper’s quarters was converted to a hostel. Explore the Lighthouse Museum next door.
