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.

Steinbeck Room

4.0 on November 11, 2015

If you don't like boring motels, this charming victorian is a good alternative. We enjoyed the sitting rooms downstairs, also used for breakfast, and our room and bed were very comfortable. I could hear the tv in the next room for most of the night, so bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper. We made a last minute reservation and could only get the room listed with the bath and shower in the hall. It turned out to be just a toilet in one room, and the shower in another room, with a small sink in the bedroom, not one full bathroom as I assumed. It was ok for one night and the price was very reasonable for the area.

We Love Staying At The Gosby House

This is the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed at. Gosby house offers a wonderful and generous wine and appetizer gathering and home made cookies through out the day. These gatherings gave us the experience of meeting some very nice guests during our stay. The last time we stayed we cancelled our dinner plans since we so enjoyed just relaxing in the wonderful atmosphere of this Bed and Breakfast. The included breakfast is also quite generous and delicious. We only wished we had stayed longer.

Wonderfully romantic stay

4.8 on October 29, 2015

My wife and I stayed on a weekend and had a wonderful time. We stayed in the Steinbeck room which has a stunnning view looking down Lighthouse Ave. that is beautifully light up at night. This room does not have its bathroom within the room, but it does have a sink within the room which made having the bathroom down the hall much less of a nuisance. Breakfast was good and the afternoon wine/snacks were nice. We especially liked the Sherry that was available in the evenings. The location in the middle of town is great with many outstanding restaurants within two blocks. We did not have any problem finding parking. We will definitely be back.

Wonderful Experience

This was our first visit to a B&B and it exceeded my expectations. The staff was Wonderful, the room was very clean. You could tell it was well taken care of. We will definitely be returning.

The perfect anniversary getaway

4.6 on October 22, 2015

We stayed in the Lover's Point room and absolutely enjoyed our stay. We decided to take a weekend getaway to celebrate our anniversary and I couldn't have pictured a better place to stay. The hotel staff was great, the location was within walking distance of plenty, and the room itself was a nice treat. Even when there was a power outage that affected 55,000+ people, the staff did their best to make all of us comfortable and still provided us with our morning food and beverages. I can't thank the Gosby House Inn enough for making our weekend worth remembering.

Exceptional room, great staff.

Stayed for to nights and such a sweet B&B! With the exception of the street cleaner so early in the morning! Also for this of you staying at a bed and breakfast for the first time, it's NOT a hotel, please be respectful of other travelers. Quiet time means quiet!

Thanks for a great stay

Excellent Staff Made Our Stay Carefree

From Monterey Bay Aquarium tickets to restaurant reservations for view tables to a bucket of champagne, Gosby House staff are very happy to help. They really made our vacation go very smoothly. The breakfasts are great, as are the afternoon appetizers.

Great stop off point

4.6 on September 28, 2015

Stopped here on our way down California on our road trip. We wanted a relaxing place after having to drive all day and that is exactly what we got. Our bed and room were extremely comfortable and the bathroom was big and the water pressure was great. The only thing that wasn't amazing but was still really good was the breakfast. It was the usual cereal, muffins, fruit and quiche which were all delicious. We have just been to bed and breakfasts that offer 3 course breakfasts before so it did not amaze us. We would definitely come back here again. We loved the small town, wish we could move here!
