    Very nice b & b, personal, warm service., beautiful porch overlooking water with beach access. Rooms are clean and basic, not luxurious. Good breakfast, plentiful coffee. Ample happy hour. Holly was always on hand and incredibly helpful.

    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
