About

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.

Fun and comfortable B&B

5 on September 12, 2018

Our two-couple party stayed in the Toves and Mimsy rooms. Both rooms were very comfortable and clean. We enjoyed the Jabberwocky theme to the house, but some of the original touches are more Alice in Wonderland. The owners are both fun and interesting conversationalists and gracious hosts. I also enjoyed the opportunity to talk with other visitors over coffee in the morning. Breakfast was delicious, and I especially like the JabJuice! Mike O.


Fantastic B&B

Great location, wonderful hosts, lots of amenities Our room was upgraded, at no additional cost, they offered cheese, crackers, vegetable plate, etc., between 5:00-6:30 pm, and a very good breakfast. The inn is within walking of the Aquarium as well as other notable sights in Monterey. Parking is provided as well. Though it’s a little on the pricey side, I found it well worth the price.We will return.


Wonderful Stay

My friend and I had a great time here. The room is very cozy and cute. The host is super friendly in helping us with dietary restriction and car issue. They also provide cookies, tea, milk, wine, brandy, and soft drinks to guests. So, you will not worry if you are hungry or thirsty during your stay.

A beautifully restored home that has been impeccably maintained. There are many interesting & unique pieces that complement the decor. Throughout the time we were there, we felt completely welcome & comfortable as if it were our home. We definitely will be back.


Wonderful Experience

We spent a great weekend at the Jabberwock. Close to my favorite Monterey restaurant and other entertainment. Close enough to take Highway 1 to Big Sur for sightseeing. We also played some Bocce ball on the property and had the most delicious breakfasts. I highly recommend you stay here.


Excellent B&B experience

4.0 on September 04, 2018

My husband and I spent a wonderful and relaxed weekend at this B&B. The Mome Roth room offered the jacuzzi experience I was looking for. Close enough to explore Big Sur and take a beautiful drive. We enjoyed our favorite Monterey Restaurant for dinner. All within a close distance from the Jabberwock. We played Bocce while sipping some wine. On our departure date, we ate the most wonderful breakfast cooked onsite. I would return to this charming place.


It really is Wonderland

Best B&B Experience Ever

Rick, Susanne and their beautiful daughter were fabulous hosts in every respect. I will plan to return for Car Week every year.


Magical

4.8 on August 24, 2018

We stayed in the Tum tum tree room and loved how magical it felt. The location is great near enough to walk to Monterey’s main row but avoids all the noise. We loved playing bocce ball in the garden


Wonderful B&B
