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.

Wonderful Stay

4.8 on April 21, 2015

My wife and I stayed in room 14, Flora's Room. The room was very nice and comfortable. The location of the room was very convenient, being located on the first floor just around the corner from the reception desk. My only disappointment was the size of the tub/shower combination; the tub was too small for either my wife nor I to fit in unless showering. Our favorite part of our stay was the afternoon Wine & Hors D'oeuvres. We expecially enjoyed this time sitting in the comfort of the front common room in front of the fire place. Over all, we loved our stay and plan on returning when possible.

Lovely B&B; delightful weekend stay

Great location, with numerous wonderful restaurants near by. A short walk to the coastal trail. Staff was friendly, helpful, and made our stay special. Breakfast was well done and bountiful. The wine and cheese in the afternoon was a great bonus

Never disappoints, always an enjoyable, relaxing stay. Staff make it like you are in your own home. A yearly must.

Comfort Plus!

A Spring Break trip to Monterey Bay with our daughter couldn't have been made more perfect thanks to the staff and the accommodations at The Gosby House. We arrived late afternoon just in time for the wonderful hors d'oeuvres. We felt at home as soon as we walked in. The rooms were absolutely charming with the antique furniture and décor. The breakfast choices were outstanding, and even our finicky teenager found lots to love for meals! We have memories to last forever and hope to visit and stay at The Gosby again.

A cozy anniversary

3.8 on April 16, 2015

We arrived to a cozy room that was cleaned and prepped with a couple of balloons, a greeting card, and a personalized "happy anniversary" card. The room we picked was on the smaller size, but we spent most of our time outside of the inn. Lots of shops and restaurants are located on the same street. It is also a short walk over to Lover's Point. The front desk was polite and informative on the different times for events. We missed the wine tasting but we did have breakfast. It was a simple breakfast with options like cereal, muffins, oatmeal, toast, bagels, and warm quiche. Overall, it made our anniversary a little more special.

Quaint Stay in Center of Town

4.4 on April 15, 2015

We were really happy with our stay at the Gosby House Inn. It was close to everything and just a few blocks (easy walking distance) from the beach. We stayed in a room separate from the main house. It was a great room with lots of privacy. The breakfasts were phenomenal. The only less than perfect thing was the WiFi. It was pretty iffy out where we were.

Family Friendly

We were celebrating our anniversary and the accommodations were nice; however, there were a couple of families in the rooms next to us that allowed their children to run from room to room. It was a bit noisy.

Enjoyed our stay in the Pacific Grove Area at the Gosby House Inn. Everything was great. The only complaint was the room we booked was so small. We had trouble putting a large and small suitcase in the room. The breakfasts were great!

Splendid stay

This was my first time staying at Gosby house. This quaint B&B exceeded my expectations. The complimentary breakfast was amazing, fresh fruit, great coffee, overall many choices. The room rates were also great compared to the area. I will recommend this place to friends and family. I will be returning soon!
