Classic bed and breakfast. Great views. Super nice staff. Good food. My wife and I had a great time here and did not want to leave. This is not a modern slick hotel. It is a classic inn. If you are looking for a modern hotel then don't stay here. If you are looking for classic, warm bed and breakfast... More

I did not stay there, but had lunch. It is a very relaxed place where they encourage you to linger and enjoy the lovely home, and the incredible view from atop Mt. Ada. The lunch is a one price meal with choices. It is self serve for all drinks and for the delicious cookies. We ate on the patio and... More

This is one of the nicest hotels/b&b's we ever stayed in. Everything was special. The house and property including the views are just spectacular. The innkeepers professionalism and generosity is amazing. And the island of Catalina has much to offer. I wish we could have stayed longer.

The Inn on Mt. Ada is a landmark on Catalina Island as the site of the original Wrigley mansion, standing majestically and overlooking Avalon. A stay is quite pricey, but does include a lot of amenities, including transportation to and from the pier (or heliport), breakfast, lunch, evening hors d'oeuvres, and virtually unlimited access to beer, wine, soft drinks, ice...

This is our second stay here and again a very memorable experience. It’s a little pricey but considering how you and your guests (yes you can have quests for lunch) are treated it’s a real bargain. You will enjoy two great meals a day overlooking the harbor, heavy appetizers at night, endless beverages, fresh cookies, and of course raiding the... More

It is our most memorable stay in the island of Catalina. From the time Michael pick us up to the time he drop us off at the dock, we were pampered like a royalty.

Looking down from the veranda onto the coastline of Catalina Island is breath-taking. The grounds are magnificent, from the woodpeckers outside the window to the beautifully kept foliage it is a feast for the eyes. The staff is always available if you need something but never intrusive. This wonderful home, originally owned by the Wrigley family is a warm and... More

We celebrated my husband's birthday by staying at the marvelous Inn on Mt. Ada. We could not have been happier -- an enchanted stay in every way! The accomodations were grand and meticulously clean and the views of Avalon Bay, the mountains, and the ocean breathtakingly beautiful and dramatic.

It was the most wonderful, beautiful get-a-way I have ever had. The rooms were spotless, the food fabulous, and the view was out of this world. It was a wonderful family trip! We are all ready to return.
