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.

My daughter and I stumbled upon The Jabberwock Inn about 3 years ago. They met us with open arms as though we were family. My daughter has several food allergies and they were always so wonderful about special meals that were safe for her and tasted wonderful too! They remember us from previous visits and will always be a part of our travel plans to the Monterey area. I don't think I have slept that good in a very long time, our bed in Mome Rathe was like a fluffy cloud. Love this place!!

Our west coast vacation was made even more special by our stay in the beautiful Jabberwock Inn. It is meticulously cared for and obviously loved by the owners. Rick and Suzanne were wonderful hosts as was Dorothy. Lovely ocean views in a relaxed atmosphere. The breakfasts were scrumptious and the evening wine and cheese selections were a nice touch as well. And I shouldn't forget the nightly cookies and milk!

Very charming, clean and friendly establishment. Very professional. The hosts are very cordial and knowledgeable regarding events and sites of Monterey. I highly suggest the Jabberwock to anyone looking for a more memorable experience than a standard hotel.

Stayed here for my girlfriends birthday. Was a little anxious about it because I have never been to a bed and breakfast and wanted it to be something that my GF would enjoy. Turned out to be one of the better random choices I've made. Was greeted warmly by the innkeepers and shown around the inn. Got the history of the house which was really interesting. Love the quirkiness and uniqueness. Food was amazing. They do a really awesome job of making great food and I was quite surprised. The wine and snacks hour was also a really nice addition and the wine and snack were also very delicious. We stayed in Tulgey wood and it was a pretty small room. The air was very dry and it was warm during out stay so the room was also very warm. They provide fans for each room, but I have to say that particular room wasn't my favorite. We will probably stay here again and choose one of the larger rooms the next time as I think the size of the room had a lot to do with how stuffy it was. Over all awesome experience and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet and cozy B&B experience

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.

My husband and I booked the Jabberwock last minute for a one-night stay. It's a lovely, charming, well-maintained house and the Borogove, where we stayed, was a large room with a jet tub. They made special accommodations for my breakfast and provided my husband with chocolate-covered strawberries for his birthday. We really liked this place!
