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.

Awesome Gosby!

My husband and I totally enjoyed our mini getaway at Gosby. The staff, accommodations, food, wine, other guests were more than we expected from a B&B. Looked forward to breakfast and afternoon "happy hour" to visit with other guests and enjoy the delish plates. Gosby was truly friendly, very comfortable and you can't beat the location. Everything from ocean, shops, yummy restaurants and lovely residential neighborhood. We would love to be able to return to Gosby from Colorado later this year. Thank you Gosby...you were just what we needed!

Perfect Getaway

First time staying at the Inn and I can for certain say that I shall be returning. Lovely rooms and pleasant staff, it was very difficult to make the transition back in to the real world when our stay was over.

Great location and service

From the moment I walked in the door I was treated as a respected guest. The room was small but had everything needed. Evening treats and morning fair were plentiful and delicious.

Stayed here during my winter break from school, right after the New Years. It was an awesome experience in such a cute & charming inn with delicious food & kind workers. The shower stall in my room (Dr. Hart) was a bit small. There was a single strand of hair on 2 of the pillows. It was not something I was expecting & I'm sure other guests may not be happy if they saw that on their pillows either. Other than that, everything was nice & exceeded my expectations.

Stayed for two nights on New Years weekend. Very pleasant staff. Cozy, well appointed room. Situated right in the heart of a wonderful little town. Many things to see and do within walking distance. Yummy choices each morning for breakfast. Appreciated the Cream Sherry nightcap when our day was finally done. We took our wine out to the back seating area our second day and enjoyed the peaceful surroundings. Well kept, well run - hope to be back soon.

A nice get-away..

This was our first time visiting the Gosby House. It was in a great location with many eateries in walking distance. The room #4 was a nice room and would recommend it! The only drawback was parking during the week. You can only park for 3 hours on the main drag, but will look forward to visiting again.
