“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

Have stayed at Gibsons for more than 25 years deer hunting and recently this month Turkey hunting. The place was great before last years fire and even better now since being repaired.
This is one place you will love to stay and keep comming back to.Dennis Collins Kekosha,WI.

Great price, cute rooms, didn't spend much time at the hotel but it is a beautiful location and close to a restaurant for breakfast. Bathroom is shared. Owners are very helpful. Have to send reservation down payment by snail mail though.

I first went to Gibson's 29 years ago when I got married on the island. For many years we took our children to Gibson's and Gibson children played with our children. We stayed in the hotel which is lovely and in the cabins as well. Two years ago, I brought my then 12 year old granddaughter who is begging me to take her back this summer (I am.) The beach useable as it was years ago, it was quite over grown with weeds etc. But the property is great and the family is amazing.

I'm thirty years old and have grown up living on WA Island summers as a girl and now visit as a mother myself. I love staying at Gibson's Lodge!! The PRIVATE BEACH IS TO DIE FOR. And, the owners are always keeping the grounds tidy ... for paying guests :) It is charming, to say the very least. All rooms are furnished with gorgeous antiques, giving you a real laid-back relaxing island feel. It's sad to see negative soundoffs from people who are potentially holding back others from seeing amazing beach and wildlife.

Room Tip: I love the double-adjoined rooms at the end :)

I live on the mainland of Door County and travel to Washington Island at least 4 times/year. This last weekend I was up there with my boyfriend and another couple. We were considering staying at Gibson's for our next visit since West Harbor is so gorgeous. We decided to take a walk through the property (on the driveway) and check it out. As we were walking in the owner stopped us and kicked us off the property! I guess they are not looking for new business.
