The service was great. We had the 4 course lunch. The views were amazing. See the photos. Salvador was the best host. This place is underated. The beverages, the appetizers, the main course and of course the desert were amazing.

amazing place! Joy who runs the bed and breakfast was a wonderful host. We stayed in the Bethany Glen that had a fireplace and great balcony overlooking The entire harbor. Gourmet food and feels like your home.

We spent 2 nights at this incredible Inn. We arrived on a Friday afternoon, picked up from the ferry dock, and told that the inn was still serving lunch.

This is one of the more unique hotel experiences I've had. You should note that this is not a full hotel, they do include breakfast and lunch but not dinner. It is not cheap either, but it is better than it seems as your room rate does include breakfast, lunch, evening appetizers, plus wine, beer and soft drinks. They also...

Came for an afternoon jaunt. Amazing view! The prix fixe menu was quite good and certainly filling. Service was just off. The older woman who seated us as hostess was also one of the servers so maybe they were short staffed? She offered us Voss water but she didn't return for a long time. Young man came and brought tap...

Lunch reservations are welcome by those not blessed with a nights stay at Mt.Ada. A fixed price includes beer, wine or champagne, juice, coffee, tea and a three course meal. Visiting the mansion is a thrill itself, add fantastic views, welcoming hosts, superior service and the best meal I've had on the island. This makes the whole experience AWESOME !...

For my first visit to Catalina as an adult, I booked a 3 night July 2016 stay here way back in 8/15. The inn has a lot of pluses--location, history, quiet, amenities--but there were some niggles that at first perplexed me. As time passed the inn's charm and the staff's hospitality more than won me over. I've not had much...
