WELCOME TO The JABBERWOCK INN of Monterey, California. Set on a half-acre of fanciful gardens, this Craftsman-style bed and breakfast inn provides fabulous views of Monterey Bay with its famous sea otters and seals. When you're ready to settle in for the evening, you'll find comfy and cozy Victorian beds complete with lace-edged sheets and goose-down comforters. Three rooms include Jacuzzi tubs for two and fireplaces. Sleep soundly, knowing that a scrumptious breakfast awaits you. In the late afternoon, wine and hors d'oeuvres are served on the enclosed sun porch and after dinner, guests are treated to homemade cookies and milk. The Jabberwock is only five short blocks above Cannery Row (made famous by author John Steinbeck). Visit Doc Rickett's Lab on Cannery Row, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Carmel -by-the-Sea, Pebble Beach, Old Fisherman's Wharf and Point Lobos/Big Sur from our Monterey Bed & Breakfast. The Monterey/Pacific Grove recreation trail, just four blocks down the hill, offers an extraordinary walking, jogging, and biking path. Perhaps you will want to explore the tide pools of Asilomar beach or play at Window on the Bay park, in any case, as you meander the trail, enjoy the scenic Monterey bay views and the historic architecture of Monterey; California's first capital. We welcome elopements and small weddings ... in our picturesque gardens and warmly appointed living areas. In town for a conference or convention? Consider Jabberwock Inn as your special place to stay.

Outstandingly maintained, managed, and staffed craftsman-style property. One of us thought the room could have been a bit larger. Service was outstanding across the board with informative staff and owners willing to address any concern or issue, e.g. ensuring our late traffic-delayed arrival (we did call) was handled graciously and effectively.. The guest areas for dining, visiting, meeting other guests were exquisitely kept in a comfortable, welcoming manner. Breakfasts were consistently welcome surprises and special requests well-handled. Owners also provided excellent suggestions for eating out. Lot and street parking are ample and safe.

After wedding it was the first outing for me and my husband. It was a drizzly Friday evening when we entered and I still remember the warm welcome we got from the manager. We were surprised by the home made strawberry chocolates. The room was fresh and neat. We had just missed the wine tasting session as we arrived late, but the wide collection of teas and cookie on the side gave a treat for the tired soles. Next morning were thrilled by the breakfast which was served at the personal patio attached to our room. Cant remember when did we drink such a tasty and fresh orange juice before and the best part was they did cater to vegetarian option. It was a romantic setting and I hope to stay here again.

This is a really delightful spot with very attentive hosts and lots of attention to detail. I personally found the breakfasts to be a little heavy, but my personal taste steers away from rich foods. We really enjoyed the Borogove room and can recommend it without hesitation.

My wife and I spent a long weekend at the Jabberwock and it was wonderful. Great location, wonderful rooms, super food and great staff. The daily happy hour with hot and cold appetizers and wine is a great opportunity to meet the other guest and interact with Rick and Suzanne. A must stay if you are close.

Rick and Suzanne are wonderful innkeepers. The property is ideally located and is beautifully appointed. An added perk is the property has wine and hors d'oeuvers everyday. Breakfast is wonderful. Jackerwock is a must stay if you are in the Monterey/Carmel area.

There are two things a bed and breakfast should get right: the beds and the breakfast. Jabberwock exceeded at both. The room was comfy and well maintained. The breakfast was delicious both mornings we were there. The environment was fun, and caused us to spend more time at the Inn than we thought we would. Would love to go back again in the future if we ever get the opportunity.

The Jabberwock Inn proved to be a charming and delightful place to stay in Monterey Bay while celebrating our 40th Wedding Anniversary. The architecture, grounds, decor and ambiance created the perfect setting for a whimsical theme inspired by Through the Looking-Glass and a poem called Jabberwocky written by Lewis Carroll. The cool coastal breezes, ocean view and close proximity to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row made this a perfect location. The Inn Keepers were helpful, insightful and thoughtful in every way and the food was excellent. We highly recommend The Jabberwock Inn at Monterey Bay.
