About

WELCOME TO The JABBERWOCK INN of Monterey, California. Set on a half-acre of fanciful gardens, this Craftsman-style bed and breakfast inn provides fabulous views of Monterey Bay with its famous sea otters and seals. When you're ready to settle in for the evening, you'll find comfy and cozy Victorian beds complete with lace-edged sheets and goose-down comforters. Three rooms include Jacuzzi tubs for two and fireplaces. Sleep soundly, knowing that a scrumptious breakfast awaits you. In the late afternoon, wine and hors d'oeuvres are served on the enclosed sun porch and after dinner, guests are treated to homemade cookies and milk. The Jabberwock is only five short blocks above Cannery Row (made famous by author John Steinbeck). Visit Doc Rickett's Lab on Cannery Row, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Carmel -by-the-Sea, Pebble Beach, Old Fisherman's Wharf and Point Lobos/Big Sur from our Monterey Bed & Breakfast. The Monterey/Pacific Grove recreation trail, just four blocks down the hill, offers an extraordinary walking, jogging, and biking path. Perhaps you will want to explore the tide pools of Asilomar beach or play at Window on the Bay park, in any case, as you meander the trail, enjoy the scenic Monterey bay views and the historic architecture of Monterey; California's first capital. We welcome elopements and small weddings ... in our picturesque gardens and warmly appointed living areas. In town for a conference or convention? Consider Jabberwock Inn as your special place to stay.

Wonderful Stay

Wonderful stay!! Outstanding hospitality by the inn owners!


Unique and Magical Experience at The Jabberwock Inn

5 on August 30, 2015

The Jabberwock Inn proved to be a charming and delightful place to stay in Monterey Bay while celebrating our 40th Wedding Anniversary. The architecture, grounds, decor and ambiance created the perfect setting for a whimsical theme inspired by Through the Looking-Glass and a poem called Jabberwocky written by Lewis Carroll. The cool coastal breezes, ocean view and close proximity to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row made this a perfect location. The Inn Keepers were helpful, insightful and thoughtful in every way and the food was excellent. We highly recommend The Jabberwock Inn at Monterey Bay.


Outstanding!

We are world travelers and because everything was sold out, we stayed there during the Monterey car week. In not a B&B person but this place was just perfect. Great location, really really good breakfast, one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in, clean and cozy. If you will stay there, don't miss the 5 PM wine tasting & snacks. You get to hang out with the owners (really nice people) and other b&b guests. We made friends like that. I totally recommend and I'm looking forward to go back to this place


Fantastic B&B with great views of Monterey

Loved this place. Rick and Susanne were the perfect hosts and made our stay feel like a home from home. Great Breakfast and freshly baked Cookies. I would highly recommend it.


In A League Of Its Own

Rick, Suzanne and the Jabberwock staff went above & beyond to make our stay memorable and very special. From brandy and warm cookies upon arrival to cocktail hour each evening, the experience was both relaxing and luxurious. Weeks later, we're still raving about what fun it was. We've wanted to stay at the Jabberwock for several years and can not wait to return for another weekend getaway before year's end.


Whimsy, Beauty and Relationships Abound

4.8 on November 30, 2014

The Jabberwock provided us with a whimsical and delightful place to stay while we enjoyed the beauty of the Monterey peninsula. Our room, though small, was cozy and comfortable with fantastic views of the bay. Breakfasts were fabulous. But the inn excels in creating an environment for enjoying relationships with other guests and the staff. We will be returning.


Cozy B&B

Outstanding hosting and don't miss it in Monterey

5 on May 13, 2014

Dawn and John is very hospital and their house is a lovely kindom. Monterey is my favourite city in my whole trip and Jabberwock is my favourite hotel as well. The room($169/night) is a little bit small but has perfect view, when we wake up in the morning, cool winds came, bird sang, perfect morning. my husband and I love the stay experience here. The bad is able to adjust softness by left half and right half, the bath room has everything as my home, and I found thin bathrobe. Oh, the luxury breakfast, fruit juice home-made, fresh fruit and cake. Dawn and John not only run hotel business, they also take care your feeling as the family welcome.


Nice place to stay in Monterrey

4.2 on March 28, 2014

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Jabberwock B&B. The other rooms were very nice but our room, which did not have an attached bath, was a bit small for the price, $169/night. The breakfast was good and the owners were very hospitable and accommodating. My only issue was the price for a small room without an attached bath. So if you want to spend a little more ($200-309/night) you can get a room with the bathroom included, making the stay more comfortable.


Outstanding hosting
