“Absolutely incredible!!!! A+++++++”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2011

We made our reservations at the last minute and it was so worth it! Michael met us at the boat and shuttled us up to the house, he was so sweet!! We initially reserved the porch garden room but were pleasantly surprised to be moved up to the Queens Aviary!! Susie, Michael, and their staff were wonderful, they made you feel like family!! My sister and three year old son were staying elsewhere on the island but they made them feel like they were one of their guest also when they visited!!!!! Having a golf cart at your disposal to cruise into town was the best!!! I sincerely cannot say enough about the view, the room, the house, or the hospitality!!! Words cannot express my sincere gratitude for making this the best part of our vacation!

My husband I went to Mt. Ada to celebrate our 30th anniversary and were so pleased with the experience. Our room had an amazing view of the ocean and harbor with sunshine morning to night. We were made to feel that this incredible mansion was our home for a couple of days. We were provided with all the free drinks, cookies, snacks...we could want. Breakfast, lunch and golf cart were all included with room. All we needed to do was relax and enjoy.

The Wrigley mansion is an amazing place, beautifully restored, beautifully run as a modern inn, ideal location. Staying here gives you a feeling of what it was like to be a member of the Wrigley family. The breakfasts and lunches are superb. Your stay includes a golf cart which is fun to drive. You will not want to leave.

Our first stay at Inn at Mt. Ada was for my birthday and we just loved it. It has been a dream of mine for many years. We were met at the docks by Vicky who took us up to Mt. Ada and acquainted us with the inn. Our room was spacious and had a wonderful view of the ocean and our personal deck had a view of the harbor. We had lunch on the veranda off the living room overlooking the beautiful harbor of Avalon. Food is delicious with complimentary breakfast and lunch, as well as appetizers offered around sunset. The butler's pantry has a refrigerator/freezer stocked so you can make your own ice cream sundaes or enjoy a refreshment anytime. One of the great additions is a personal golf cart at your disposal for your entire stay. We traveled all over Avalon. With all the wonderful "extras" and amenites included in the stay it makes in a great deal. We ploan to make a yearly return. The entire staff was warm and wonderful!

We love good places and this is one of our all time favorites. An historical building with views of Avalon that make you wish that you could stay forever. Susie, Vicky and the staff make you feel at home and the service and features of this fabulous Inn are beyond reproach. First class amenities, majestic location, super staff, excellent breakfast, lunch, beverages and a clean and reliable golf cart included. Who could ask for more? We would not stay anywhere else when visiting Catalina. Five star!

The Inn was probably one of the more expensive places we have stayed, but when you add in all that is included, we definitely felt it was worth it.

The lunch that is included, is a full menu and the breakfast is at least two courses plus an hour before breakfast, they have a basket of fresh muffins with tea or coffee to tie you over.

The view from our room. The Windsor Room, made it difficult to get out of bed in the morning. The views from the decks are just as wonderful. We loved the kitty that visited us at the end of the day. Happy hour is one of the more generous ones I have been to and one night, we didn't go out to eat because between happy hour and the sundae bar and complimentary beer and wine, we just wanted to stay there. (besides the sundae bar, we had a rootbear float for dessert there the night before.)

The complimentary golf cart is such a great idea and we drove to every part of the island that we were allowed. We had so much fun renting a boat one afternoon, we wished we had done it all day (and brought beer or wine with us!)

Wanted to go to one nice place for dinner since it was my husband's birthday, and the island is VERY casual, so we were definitely over dressed. No need for heels, most people were in shorts and hawaiian tops.

We thought of this place as a one time visit, but we both agreed, we would return!
