From pre-arrival to departure we were totally informed. Inn was cozy and comfortable, very clean. Tasty appetizers and wine in the afternoon. Breakfast was wonderful. The owner, Kathleen, was very helpful. Mostly, if she recommends something, DO IT! She really knows what she is talking about

Found The Old Turner Inn on Trip Advisor and booked the Queen Suite. Easy walking distance from the ferry. Arrived and had a nice note waiting for us to go right upstairs and check into our room. A very quaint, historic inn minutes from the main street, yet was very quiet and. Very comfortable room with a fire place and... More

Beautiful Victorian B&B! Kathleen is a wonderful hostess and serves delicious breakfast meals! She is very knowledgeable about the island, activities and it's history. We had such a great time on the island we extended our stay. Will be returning again!

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There is nothing like the staying at The Old Turner Inn. You'll feel connected to the Island by being hosted by a family that has had roots here since 1878. Located in the heart of Avalon, just one short block from the waterfront, beaches, shops & restaurants, this immaculately kept Cape Cod structure reveals a balance of comfort and elegance to its guests. Sunny sitting porches, in-room fireplaces, private bathrooms, antiques, gallery quality artwork of Catalina scenes, historic family photos, and a grand piano combined with our full, scrumptious hot breakfast and friendly staff... Together, they set the mood for a unique, romantic and relaxing Island getaway. ... more   less
