Professionally Inspected & Certified Diamond Collection


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.

Victorian Charm

This is a very good value. Within a block of two of the best restaurants in Pacific Grove. Staff accommodates gluten allergies and will prepare eggs without dairy. The regular gluten and dairy offerings looked wonderful. We stayed in one of the smallest rooms and loved its charm and value. This Victorian is beautifully decorated. Cannot wait to stay again!

Beautiful getaway!

Once again we find ourselves enjoying the hospitality of the folks at the Gosby. Love the quaint rooms where we always sleep well, look forward to the delicious breakfast to start the day and always are invigorated to walk the neighborhood, esp. Down to Lover's Point. It's a can't miss romantic, relaxing respite.

I love it, love it, love it.

Weekend Mother/Daughter Get-Away

4.0 on March 12, 2015

I live in SF and my mom came to visit me from San Diego last weekend. We decided to do a mini-getaway together and go down to Monterey. I would HIGHLY recommend The Gosby House Inn. It was super cute, nice and had everything you need to make your stay comfortable and memorable. Their breakfast was like an upgraded continental breakfast with more options and homemade items than I expected. There was always tea, coffee and cookies/cakes in the afternoon and a little wine reception at night. The location was the best part. Right in the middle of Pacific Grove, next to tons of great restaurants, little shops and a cute bookstore/coffee shop. It's a short walk down to the beautiful beach/coastal area too. I'm glad my mom and I stayed in Pacific Grove, so much personality. The Inn really made the experience too!

Charming & Romantic Every Month of The Year

We have been going to the Gosby House for many years and have never been disappointed. The staff at the front desk are always happy to help in any way they can. It is like going home every time we walk in the door.

A great place in a pleasant neighborhood near restaurants and the seaside (Lover's Beach). We stayed in the Robert Louis Stevenson suite, room number 5. It wasn't cold enough to use the fireplace, but it would have been nice. Breakfast was different each morning and very good. The evening reception included wine and a freshly made snack. One night we had spinach dip which was delicious. Overall a most refreshing and most excellent place to stay.
