About

Delightfully situated in the center of Pacific Grove, the Gosby House Inn has been welcoming guests for over 100 years. This cheerful yellow and white Victorian mansion, with its carefully tended gardens and central patio, sets the standard for gracious innkeeping. The Gosby House Inn has 22 individually decorated guest rooms, each more charming than the one before. Many have sitting areas with fireplaces, a private patio entrance or window seat. The Carriage House has two deluxe rooms with a spa tub for two, fireplace and balcony. Many of the recipes in the Four Sisters Inns Cookbook were tested and perfected in the kitchen at the Gosby House Inn. The aroma of baking bread spreads throughout the inn each morning in anticipation of the lavish breakfast to come. Afternoon tea, accompanied by wine and sherry, welcomes you back from a day of exploring. Restaurants, shops and a scenic shoreline-walking route are just a few steps from the Gosby House Inn, the choice for romance on the Monterey Peninsula.

A wonderful B&B

4.4 on July 28, 2016

The rooms are great, food outstanding and the service is always amazing


Very comfortable

5 on July 28, 2016

Was a perfect place to stay on our way from San Francisco to Yosemite. We wanted to take a drive down the coastal highway and see the sights. This BnB was everything we hoped it would be for our short stay. The breakfast was excellent!


Such a great spot for a weekend or longer

5 on July 26, 2016

We were traveling from SF to SD and this was one of our stops. We were so pleased with the Inn as well as the area. The inn iolder well kept and run very well. Staff was friendly and helpful, and the evening turn down with flower and chocolates was a nice touch. Very cozy place allowing people to get together in the evening to chat and make new friends. The breakfast wraps very good and we loved the proximity to all oth the tourist areas such as cannery row and the aquarium. I would definitely stay there again.


Stay longer

Perfect B&B

A very warm welcome and spotless comfortable rooms.The breakfast which is freshly prepared especially the muffins,was excellent.Pacific Grove is a beautiful place and perfect as a base for exploring the Monterey and Carmel area. If i visit this area again I hope Gosby House is available.


Delightful Stay

5 on July 19, 2016

I have visited many B&Bs nationally and internationally (including in Monterey) and Gosby House stood up to the very best. It is conviently located in old Pacific Grove within easy walking distance of boutique shops and a variety of dining options as well as being a short distance from the bay and Cannery Row/Downtown Monterey. The rooms are good size for an older (1886/87) property and well appointed. The grounds are inviting and well maintained. The breakfast, though buffet, is very good and the afternoon wine, crudités and hors d'eouvers very accommodating. Evening coffee, tea and dessert is awaiting your return from dining. The staff is friendly and accommodating and the personal touches most welcoming. Turn down services, chocolates and personal notes in the rooms are inviting and a full array of tv options and free wifi consistent with expectations of today's properties. We will definitely stay again. Russ Lindgren Folsom, Ca

Location is great, the B&B is cute and comfy. Sound proof is not really good but understandable since it's an old house.


Gosby House Dr. Hart room comfortable

3.6 on July 17, 2016

This was the second time my wife and I have visited the Gosby House Inn. Definitely very pleased with the visit! The Dr. Hart room was FANTASTIC, my favorite room now! Wonderful character with bay window overlooking Lighthouse Street, nice spacious room design, a charming queen size bed with a quilt that kept us very comfortable during the cool evening, bathroom and shower very clean. Bonus: street lamps acted like night lights for our room, that was a nice touch! Complimentary wine, coffee, hors d'oeuvres, breakfast all outstanding too! Restaurants within walking distance very good as well! We will certainly be coming back!


Great B&B
