Overnights in the isolated hamlet of Two Harbors are remote and rustic. For those who love nature and relaxation, it’s a prime escape hatch. Historic Banning House Lodge, the exclusive Casas or seaside camping are among the lodging choices.
- The Banning House Lodge
The Banning House Lodge, the only bed & breakfast at the Isthmus, was built in 1910 as a summer home for the pioneering Banning brothers, who owned Santa Catalina Island. Now a historic, charming, Craftsman-style bed and breakfast, the Banning House Lodge offers sweeping views of the Isthmus of Catalina and Catalina Harbor from its romantic, hilltop perch above Two Harbors.
Each of the eleven rooms is individually decorated and has a private bath. There is also a trellised courtyard where you can sip a cool drink and view the California mainland on the horizon.
