About

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.

Perfect in Every Way

5 on May 11, 2018

My birthday trip included two wonderful nights at Gosby House Inn, and the present from my husband couldn't have been more fabulous! We had the wonderful, large Trimmer Hill King room, #13, downstairs, with it's own sitting porch off French doors and a fireplace. The afternoon wine happy hour, and incredible breakfasts, were icing on the 'birthday' cake! Dinner right across the street and The Red House Cafe was terrific! Wish I could stay at least twice every year! Love everything about it, and Pacific Grove is SO much better than Monterey or Carmel in my book. Thank you to all the wonderful staff at Gosby House for helping to make my birthday exceptional.


wonderful place

Our room was cozy and just right for two. Breakfast was excellent and wine and cheese in the evening was a perfect end to the day in Pacific Grove. The birds in the morning were our alarm clock!


A great B&B right in the heart of Pacific Grove

4.8 on April 19, 2018

We have been to Pacific Grove many times and this was our first stay at the Gosby House Inn. The staff was great. Breakfast was amazing! Tea time had great wine, dessert and snacks. If you want to be in the heart of downtown Pacific Grove, this is the place. You can walk to all the old shops and restaurants within minutes. Lovers point is only a 10 minute walk. We do recommend requesting a room away from the Lighthouse Ave. side. The traffic won't let you sleep in and can be really loud. Highly recommend staying here!


Awesome

A great alternative to Monterey

4.4 on April 18, 2018

Pacific Grove is a fantastic alternative to staying in Monterey. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is about a 20 min. walk. Lovers Point about 10 min. Our accommodations were spacious, clean and comfortable. By no means is a Holliday Inn type of hotel. It is over 100 years old, is full of charm and not a box. The breakfast is full of variety and tasty. The afternoon refreshments include wine cheese, crackers, some sort of quiche and many other things. Having been to a few of the Four Sister Ins during the past decade or so they are always my first choice when traveling.


Wonderful stay

Romantic and memorable

5 on April 12, 2018

We celebrated my husband's birthday by staying the weekend at The Gosby Inn. All the little touches made the difference; the balloons waiting in the room, the champagne on ice, the turn down service, the complimentary appetizers and drinks and the absolutely fabulous breakfasts. The room had a fireplace we used as much as possible and the balcony gave us a cozy place to start and end the day. LOVED it!


Not as nice as other Four Sisters Inns

2.4 on April 11, 2018

I have stayed in many Four Sisters Inns and those were very nice. This one was clean, but the room we had did not have a bathroom in the room. It was not convenient to have to walk across the hall to use the restroom and shower, not to mention having to use the facilities during the night and having to walk the halls in my night clothes. I probably wouldn’t stay at the Gosby house again.
