We booked the Queen room for an overnight visit. Our innkeeper, Krista, easily one of the most gracious people we have met in a long time took care of every need and provided us with a litany of information, privy only to long time islanders which helped make our stay there so much more enjoyable than a corporate venue. We had a lovely homemade breakfast served promptly at 9 (coffee provided even earlier at 7:30) as Krista helped us map out our day on this Southern California Oasis.
The room is spacious, with thoughtful and charming touches like hand-sewn throws on the Victorian era rocking chairs and
beautiful lace on the daybed-the sitting which faces one of the quaint, sleepy streets of Avalon. We will return.
