“Quaint Cottage”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

We stayed in a little cottage here. It was very rustic with very old linens and mismatched plates, cups, and utensils, but it added to the charm. There's a beautiful view and a sandy beach. Would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: The rooms in the main house are cheaper but you have to share a bathroom and living quarters. The c...

A little piece of heaven here in Wisconsin. So very relaxing, beautiful property. Never a bad view from any room. This family is so friendly and will make you feel at home. The water and nature here will hypnotize. Rustic cabins are a great getaway from television.

I have been to this location twice and am sorry I waited so long to return.The main house has been refurbished after a fire and is prettier than ever. There are multiple cabins and a three bedroom mobile home with addition. All are close to Lake Michigan and you can enjoy Gibson's Boulder Beach during the day or in the evening with a warm fire at the fire pit. The owners are friendly and welcoming and Washington Island a perfect place to relax.

Room Tip: If you have a famikly try an book a cabin or the trailer. The trailer has the best layout for relaxi...

We fell into the Gibson's 9 years ago when most everything else on the island was full. We wouldn't miss visiting there now, and do so every single year.

We stay in the lodge -- which wouldn't work for you if you want the Hilton, (there are no televisions in the rooms, no air conditioning) but if you want a great experience for your kids-- playing pool with new-found friends, watching a movie together in a common living room, a beach with a fire each night, group volleyball games, riding your bike around the property and catching snakes, you couldn't find a better place. And the Gibson's are lovely, lovely people, and very helpful. So use the fan in the room, speak to your neighbors, bring your bike, and have a wonderful, wonderful time.

we stayed there lost year and can't wait to come back this summer. The beach and campfire was awesome and the grounds were awesome, and the rooms were awesome. get the title! We all had a very relaxing and enjoyable time. You could not find nicer people then the owners and their family who all involved with everyone. I would also like to that Mr. Gibson for being a vet. Thanks again Mike Paral

Best kept secret in Wisconsin. Property in on the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan. The one side is on the quiet harbor. Kids spend the day finding fish, turtles and crabs. Great fishing in the harbor for small mouth bass. Quite and relaxing:)

We have been coming to the Gibsons for the past 32 years. And we count as island new-comers! Our children grew up here every summer; Herb and Mari are wonderful hosts, as are their kids. The grounds are incomparable. Swimming, canoeing, kayaking, sunsets, campfires, peace and quiet .... unforgettable.
