The Old Turner Inn

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.

We stayed three

My husband booked this place and I was initially disappointed as the room was on the small side with just a bedroom and a bathroom (the Seashell Room), but the amenities of Old Turner made up for it. Breakfast was excellent - frittata one day and French toast bake the next. Wine

This venue was one of our better stays this year... which is saying something. We are consummate travelers, fortunate to have the freedom and the means to travel world-wide. We choose our lodging very carefully and the Old Turner Inn worked out to be a superb choice. Close to

We had a lovely stay on Catalina Island in this very charming and historic bed and breakfast. Kathleen was a wonderful hostess and made delicious breakfast every morning. And the appetizers and wine before dinner was an added bonus. We were a block from the marina, shops and rest

Innkeeper, We are looking for an overnight lodging from Oct 6 to Oct 7 2018. Does your inn provide for one-night stay? Thank you in advance.
Hello, thanks for contacting The Old Turner Inn. We do have rooms available that weekend, however we do have a 2 night minimum at this time with any Saturday night stay. So, either Fri/Sat or Sat/Sun. I do happen to have a Saturday only stay available on Sept. 15, if your plans are flexible. Check back with us as it gets closer to the weekend, and we may be able to help. Otherwise, within a couple of weeks of the weekend, the Catalina Chamber of Commerce will have a list of hotels with availability on upcoming weekends - and those with Saturday only stays available. Their number is 310-510-1520. Kathleen

Hello, I'd like to stay at the Old Turner Inn for one night, either Sunday Aug 9 or Mon Aug 10. I'm bringing my best friend from the East Coast who's been eager to visit Catalina for years. What availability do you have those days and what is the price range? Thank you, Dana Harrell of Northridge, CA
Great place to stay. Can't recommend it enough. Darling B&B, clean and charming. Family raised in Catalina so they know the history. Kathleen provides a full breakfast at 9:00 and a light happy hour at 5:30 with 2 bottles of wine, one red one white. Lots of places to eat, but if you like Italian food, go to the Portofino Villa. Enjoy!
