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!

Our family group (usually about 12-18 people, this time a few more) has stayed here several times, most recently last weekend. Very clean with many amenities: plenty of lawn chairs scattered around the property, rocking chairs on the front porch, pool table, playground equipment for the youngsters, volleyball, upstairs hall with creaky wood floor that somehow is comforting, mature shade...

When life was simpler....no air, TV, cell phones or even locks! Where God put us in a place of nature, friendship, and yes trust! My sisters and I had a fabulous long weekend in a quaint, clean room, where we just laughed and had fun at this resort owned by a wonderful family!

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!

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... More

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... More

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.
