Have not been on the island since I was young and wanted to come do some hiking and biking. Did some research on what hotels to stay at, and every time the Avalon came to the top. So gave it a shot, and boy was I glad I did. Such an awesome place, great rooms with a very bed and breakfast feel. I loved the décor and layout of the old building, but with the modern updates. The staff was super friendly, gave me all sorts of advice and secret hidden gems to find such as trails and great little places to eat. I felt like I was staying with family being as friendly as the Innkeepers were. The views of the bay are great and the little garden is a great little sanctuary to have breakfast or just relax. I have no reason or want to try another hotel. This will be my choice time and time again.
