Groups Love HI Tibbetts Point Lighthouse

Spectacular, one-of-a-kind location overlooking Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River. The iconic Tibbetts Point Lighthouse overlooks the hostel, which is located in the original lighthouse keeper’s house. A great spot for small groups and whole-hostel rental. Youth groups and scouts, cyclists, retreats and reunions have all found a home-away-from-home at the lighthouse hostel.
