Banning House Lodge

Rustic Charm Overlooking Two Harbors

Surrounded by palm trees on a hill above Two Harbors, Banning House Lodge has been artfully restored and transformed into a charming Craftsman-style bed and breakfast, offering sweeping views of the Isthmus and Catalina Harbor.

All 12 guest rooms have private baths and are individually decorated to capture the character of an early 20th-century lodge. The Common Lodge and Sun Room offer cozy places to read a book by a roaring fire, while the beautifully trellised courtyard is the perfect spot to relax with a cool drink and enjoy beautiful island vistas.

Shuttle service to and from Two Harbors village is provided. Guests enjoy:

  • Complimentary continental breakfast delivered to your guest room
  • Bottle of wine and cheese plate on arrival day
  • Shuttle from Visitor Services upon arrival, departure, and throughout the day
  • 15% off rentals at the Dive & Recreation Center (seasonal discount, excludes SCUBA)
Note: Banning House Lodge is located in Two Harbors. Two Harbors is located on the western side of the island. Two Harbors is accessible via Catalina Express from San Pedro or seasonally by the Cyclone power boat from Avalon. Two Harbors is NOT the same location as Avalon.

Be sure to check the Catalina Express schedule, as boat transportation is restricted in the fall and winter.
