The Inn on Mt. Ada has been amazing and special. The service was personable and wonderful--delicious breakfasts and lunches accompanied by most amazing views...happy hour at sunset with hot hor deurves ...suite was elegant, cozy, romantic and the porch had views of the mountains and harbor, and town. Butler pantry at night for late snacking, along with wine, beer, port,... More

The Inn on Mt Ada is a bed and Breakfast. William Wrigley Jr., owner of the Chicago Cubs, bought the Island in 1919 and built this home in Avalon for his wife Ada. He picked the top of a hill that had the very best view of his personal paradise. My husband and I were lucky enough to be married... More

We were lucky enough to visit the Inn on Mt. Ada on essentially the last full day of operation by the current inn keepers where we shared tears and past memories with everyone there. We have never been to a better property and never treated so much like family as we have at the Inn hosted by Marlene and Susie.... More

We stayed for the last time at the Inn on Mt. Ada after more than 14 years of visits. All we can say is that it was like a home away from home due to the incredible hospitality of Susan, Marlene, Erin, Michael and the entire staff. The operations are changing and the Inn will now be operated by the... More

Last week we spent four nights enjoying the inn that we have known for nineteen years. The familiar staff, Susie's "Welcome Home" and Lois' "Good Evening" were things we have been treated to every time we enter this beautiful inn. But, all good things must come to an end. If you have stayed in the past you have come to... More

"We are filled with much joy and excitement to announce the continued operation of The Inn on Mt. Ada; by the Santa Catalina Island Company." I received this email about a week ago, and am happy to report it is wonderfully true! I have already booked my 2015 visit and in the most lovely, sought after and desirable room and... More

Hi All, Just thought I'd drop in and let you know that our last visit to Mt. Ada (about a week ago) may be our last... it seems that the Island Company has been given the lease to now run Mt. Ada and changes are expected. We have been going for about 15 years and have loved it from our... More

This was our 7th visit to the Inn where we were married in 1994 (Back when they still let you!) We rented the whole house and at that time they were still serving dinners as well. It was the most wonderful time of our life with such a beautiful view, great food, wonderful service...amazing. We celebrated our 20th anniversary Oct... More

My husband surprised me for our silver anniversary by going to this Inn. I'm so sad that it is closing because it was worth the trip and the time. I hope that something can be done and it will reopen. Who can forget Sherry on the veranda overlooking the beautiful beaches? Who can also say they've stayed in the Wrigley... More

We stayed here years ago on our honeymoon and the weekend was fantastic. From the impeccable service and the fantastic views the place couldn't be beat. We have been back two times since and were hoping to go again next year for our 25th. Unfortunately found out that USC is not renewing their lease and the Inn is closing. Very... More
