My wife and I stayed at the Avonlea for our minimoon. We have great experience with the island and the inn. The inn is newly renovated, modern and charming at the same time. The view from our room, the Moonstone, is unbelievable. Holly is very helpful. Definitely recommend.

Relaxing getaway during the holiday season. Wonderful accommodations thanks to Holly! Sapphire room had beautiful ocean views. Fresh breakfast was ready when we went downstairs, along with a great cocktail hour at 530 every night with an app and the famous barnacle cookies!!

Avonlea is a city block from the ferry and is walking distance unless you are coming from Montauk. The Montauk ferry dock is about 1 mile from Avonlea. Ann

"Several rooms offer magnificent expansive ocean view!"
"Choose a an upstairs floor."
"Rooms with the ocean view are awesome!"
"Front rooms to enjoy ocean views - it is worth the extra money!"
"If you have to stay here pick a room in the front facing the ocean, hopefully that will drown out the noise."
