My boyfriend and I spent a night at the Old Turner Inn and had a wonderful experience!! Kathleen was there to greet us when we arrived (check in is at 2:00pm, but our room was ready when we arrived at 10:00am) and made some great suggestions for local fun and food. When we arrived on the island we rented a... More

First time on the island and first time staying at a bed and breakfast -- and I could not have asked for a better experience. I was looking for one night accommodations to celebrate turning the big 3-0, and it was a rather stressful experience searching for a place that would allow me (and some possible friends) to stay for...

This wonderful 5- bedroom B&B home is located about two blocks from the main shopping area in Avalon. The rooms are clean, include a TV, fireplace, full bath, and some of the rooms also have DVD capability (they have many to choose from). Breakfasts, prepared by owner Kathleen, are delicious. And they also feature wine and light appetizers in the... More

We went with friends and had a wonderful time as Kathleen was a great host (helpful at every step) and on top of this is an amateur astronomer who led us on an exceptional exploration of the night sky over Avalon Bay. One of our favorite B&B's experiences!

This is a wonderful family run B&B. Roger was on duty the week we were there and he was so accommodating and welcoming. We had the Garden Room on the ground floor, which was great because my husband's knees don't like the stairs! This room was immaculate, charming, comfortable and quiet. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was simple and... More

We rented two rooms at the Old Turner Inn. The beds were incredibly comfortable--reminded me of the beds we slept in on a Norwegian cruise one summer. The Inn is conveniently located and Kathleen does a great job seeing to the comfort of her guests. The breakfast was wonderful too. I highly recommend this B & B.

I loved every minute. From the moment we walked in to the minute we left, there was just warmth and welcome all around. Kathleen and her family have been on the island a long time (since childhood?) and know everything to know about the island. She gave my fiance and I great recommendations. The trip wouldn't have been the same... More

On April 2nd 2015, my wife, daughter and I stayed at this lovely inn. Kathleen was able to accomodate us for a night's stay in the master suite. The suite was spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed the hospitality provided by the inn and enjoyed the breakfast provided (we missed the appetizers at night due to late arrival and check-in). The... More

Old Turner Inn is what a bed and breakfast should be: charming, comfortable accommodations; very nice rooms and amenities (bedside candy, sherry); inviting public area (parlor, breakfast porch); pleasant, helpful staff (Roger); and BREAKFAST!!!! It's so refreshing to stay at a bed and breakfast where the breakfast isn't cereal and juice, or Costco muffins. Homemade bread pudding was a such... More

Every time I stay at The Old Turner Inn the service, hospitality and ambiance is superb. I have come to expect this from them and they have never failed to deliver. Just when I think it cant get better they surprise me and they top my last visit.
