Starry Nights

Washington Island is not yet designated as a Dark Sky destination, but even without that label, the sky over the Island is luminous at night. Milky way, shooting stars, seasonal planets risings. We enjoy these dark sky time shows every night.

This photo by hotel guest, Dan Landbo, demonstrates why we love Washington Island. The sky is replete with stars. Pair that with wine and sunset at the dock, delicious meals, reading on the lawn, hiking at Jackson Harbor and you’ll know why Washington Island is a destination getaway.
