About

WELCOME TO JABBERWOCK INN in Monterey, California. Set in a half-acre of gardens, this Craftsman-style bed and breakfast inn provides a fabulous view of Monterey Bay with its famous barking seals. When you're ready to settle in for the evening, you'll find huge Victorian beds complete with lace-edged sheets and goose-down comforters. Three rooms include Jacuzzi tubs for two. In the late afternoon, wine, hors d'oeuvres and aperitifs are served on an enclosed sun porch. After dinner, guests are tucked into bed with homemade cookies and milk. The Jabberwock B&B Inn is only five short blocks above Cannery Row (made famous by author John Steinbeck). Visit Cannery Row, The Monterey Bay Aquarium, Carmel, Pebble Beach, Fisherman's Wharf and Point Lobos / Big Sur from our Monterey, CA B&B accommodation! 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 go to Fisherman's Wharf or the Historic Adobes. In any case, as you meander, enjoy the beautiful Monterey Bay and historic Monterey, California.

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

Friendly Inkeepers in a Lovely Setting

4.4 on January 06, 2014

The Jabberwock is a beautiful B & B in Monterrey, California. The innkeepers are extremely kind and go all out to accommodate their guests. The rooms are lovely, clean and many of them have excellent views. My only suggestion is for the innkeepers to consider the potential dietary habits of their guests. Every meal had pork in (either ham or sausage). This could be easily solved by using chicken or turkey sausage. Also, some of the breakfasts tasted strangely like desert: high on carbs and low on protein. There seemed to be an abundance of potatoes and rice...along with the pork. The grounds are lovely and the evening wine is quite nice. The sherry strategically placed in the rooms is delightful.


Great 45 Aniversary

My wife and I booked last minute to celebrate our anniversary mainly after reading reviews for the Jabberwock Inn and were not disappointed with our stay. The inn is charming and was nicely decorated for the Christmas season. Dawn and John were great hosts and offered suggestions for area dining and interesting history on the area and facility. The included hors d' oeuvres and breakfast were very good and we enjoyed the casual atmosphere and conversation with other guests. We will return in the future for more than just one night's stay.


Terrific!!!
