Experience the finest in style, sophistication, and service at Mt Ada, the former island escape of William Wrigley Jr. and his wife Ada. You’ll be treated like royalty in this Forbes Travel Guide 4-star property, which offers six en suite guest rooms, each beautifully appointed to reflect a bygone era.
The lower level of this beautiful property features Mr. Wrigley’s former billiards room, now a comfortable den with bar, fireplace and majestic island views. A spectacular wrap-around terrace looks out to Avalon Bay and is a great place to spot one of the island’s Bald Eagles.
Complimentary transportation to and from the ferry, heliport, airport or other lodging property is provided. Guests also have access to their own golf cart to explore Avalon during their stay.
We love animals, but unfortunately Mt Ada is not equipped to handle pets or emotional support animals. However, we do allow service animals with proper documentation. We apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you for understanding.
Please note there is no elevator at Mt Ada, and guest rooms are located on the second floor.

We had an exceptionally wonderful stay with them and enjoyed our visit to Catalina that much more because of their all inclusive accommodations and warm & welcoming staff.
