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.

Third stay

4.2 on September 15, 2018

We continue to return - tried a different room and enjoyed it just as well - Lovers Point room. The location is awesome with great neighborhood walks or walk to the ocean. Many good restaurants also within a short walk.

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay. Room was super clean and bed was very comfortable. Breakfast and afternoon appetizers were delicious. The service is outstanding. The receptionist made a dinner reservation for us. I can't wait to come back.


Always the perfect place!!!

Cosby House, Auto Week,

We always stay at Cosby House or Green Gables Inn, While in Monterey area. Lovely buildings and great staff. We like that offer breakfast in your room, also offer bikes to use. We have also stayed at Jabberwock B&B , best breakfast, but not offered in room , and further away from water.


Wonderful stay at Gosby House.

A few days in paradise!

4.4 on September 05, 2018

This was a first experience with a B&B in Pacific Grove, CA. It was a memorable stay - clean rooms, outstanding service, great food. What to improve? maybe better cofee and dry red wine? But these are just nits; the Gosby House is fabulous. Thank you.


Weekend Getaway

4.2 on September 04, 2018

Great staff, room and area! Met our expectations and held up to the great reviews. One thing to remember this is an historic house and without air conditioning. Keep that In Mind on humid warm evenings. No ceiling fans in room eithe but will stay again.


Perfect getaway

We are so happy we ended up staying in Pacific Grove rather than Monterey or Carmel. This house was so cute and located on cute street with awesome restaurants and shops. Breakfast was delicious and filling! Loved their happy hour as well, and they have yummy cookies in the evening. Everyone was so kind. We loved our room even though we had to walk in the hall to get to bathroom but it never felt awkward. Only downfall was we had the room closest to Main Street so in morning it was kind of loud with the windows opened, but we eventually got used to it. Highly recommend!


beautiful, well kept hotel with friendly staff.
