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 the Monterey Bay with its famous sea otters and seals. 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. When you're ready to settle in for the evening, you'll find cozy beds complete with comfy sheets and comforters. Three rooms include Jacuzzi tubs for two and fireplaces. Sleep soundly, knowing that a scrumptious breakfast awaits you. 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.

Wonderful stay at the Jabberwock. Lots of attention to detail. I took my boyfriend for his birthday and we went both impressed with our 2 night stay. The breakfast each morning was delicious and filled us up for a day of exploring. The owners were very personable and made sure we had a great stay!

The hosts were quite friendly and helpful! The rooms were nice and whimsically decorated. Really liked the whirlpool tub. The bedspread was worn out. We really enjoyed the yummy breakfasts! Would definitely recommend to everyone and would return.

The owners and staff make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. Our stay was for three nights and each breakfast was a new and wonderful experience except for the smoothie which you would not want to change. The afternoon wine, tea and snacks were a delight and the perfect time for the guests to exchange dining tips and excursion suggestions. One of the hosts was always on hand to help with direction, make suggestions and help with reservation. Very comfortable, great grounds and views with ample on site parking.

Our hosts, Rick and Suzanne, were gracious and helpful. The home is perfectly located to walk to the Aquarium and wharf. We will stay there again.

We only spent one night in Monterey but we had such a great time. We arrived early and parked our car in their lot and walked into town, great location! The family that runs the B&B were so friendly, great appetizers and wine and a lovely breakfast. Fabulous!

We had a wonderful stay here. The owners Rick and Suzanne were very personable and friendly making sure we felt comfortable and at home. We loved their enclosed porch. The breakfast was amazing and exceeded our expectations. They were great in taking care and making reservations for dinner and showing us many menus they had of local restaurants.

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.
