Our Guests Say It Best!


Read more about Mt Ada in these guest reviews:

Sublime experience with Bespoke service, expensive but worth it

"From the minute they pick you up at the dock in their Mercedes van, until they drop you off to catch your boat home, no request is too big for the staff. Everyone is assigned an electric golf cart with their room, this is huge, because of the location on a steep hill, walking would take up a lot of time and energy." TripAdvisor, January 2023

Expectations Blown Away!

"I can't rave about this place highly enough. We were there for a family wedding & had the entire place to ourselves. From the beautiful grounds to the comfortable accommodations to the spectacular views - just astounding! But the real gem of the place is the awesome staff who take such conscientious care of you without ever feeling intrusive." TripAdvisor, August 2022

A magical place with incredible views and incredible service

"This was our second stay at Mt. Ada, and though there seem to be some changes afoot in terms of ownership and management, none of that affected the experience of our stay. The home and grounds are beautiful, as you might expect, and, within the context of it being a truly historic place, it is also well maintained with attention to the period during which it was built and used. The staff is phenomenal in every way." TripAdvisor, November 2022

Sincere Attention of Mt Ada Staff

"This was a uniquely pleasant experience at a superb historical residence overlooking Avalon, with a steady sea breeze on the room balcony to keep the temperature mild during the hotter ("dog") days of late Summer. The staff provided much more than anticipated in terms of dockside pickup and drop off, detailed explanations of the location and history of the estate, and impeccable service throughout our stay." TripAdvisor, September 2022
