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.

Gosby House Inn is an ideal place to stay in Pacific Grove, CA. It is in a convienent location in the cute and quiet community of Pacific Grove. It is a short walk to Lover's Point on the Bay. The food and rooms are great.

Great Getaway

We greatly enjoyed our anniversary getaway at the Gosby House. Room was very nice and the food great.

Relaxing bit of history

This place is wonderful. I will be back for sure. I love all the little touches; turn down service with rose and chocolate, warm cookies at 3 pm, breakfast brought to you in bed, balloons and a note from the staff wishing us a happy anniversary. A quick walk to restaurants and the Ocean at Lovers Point. I love this place. Room 19 was in the back patio and I loved having that separate french door entrance.

Great two days!

Our daughter has stayed here and recommended it for its charm, great breakfast, and the wine and cheese happy hour. We enjoyed meeting the other guests at that time and the beds were so comfortable. Great location. We will most definitely return.

Found this B & B totally by accident and I'm glad I did. Great service, clean rooms, and quite a spread for breakfast. About a mile from the aquarium and you can purchase tickets at the front desk so no lines! You are also within walking distance of many restaurants and shops. Will definitely stay here again when I return.

Lovely B and B by the Sea

Great location on main street, Caleb and Ben were helpful and friendly. Afternoon hors d'oeuvres and delicious morning breakfast. Just a few blocks from ocean. Great shopping and restaurants all down the street. Cozy room with flat screen and private bath. All we needed. Pacific Grove is an adorable community with lots to do in area including Pebble Beach Golf, Aquarium and of course Rt. 1 along the ocean.

Gourmet Breakfast and Great Staff

Stayed in a separate building from the Inn with a great view of the area and ocean. Breakfast was delicious and Inn location is very convenient to the Monterey/Carmel area. We have stayed here before and look forward to staying again hopefully soon.

A wonderful two days.

My husband and I have stayed at the Gosby House many times in different rooms. This was our first time in the Robert Louis Stevenson room. As usual, it was beautiful and the people and service was wonderful. Breakfast was a treat, with each dish delicious. We had plenty to eat. The coffee was good, too! I love the turndown service with the chocolate on the pillow. Small detail, but I wish they had two ply bathroom tissue. It was so thin I felt like I was using half the roll each time.
