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.

Great Getaway!!!

My wife and I stayed for a night to celebrate the beginning of our Thanksgiving break, and it was lovely. This is our second Four Sisters bed and breakfast experience, and it did not disappoint. We stayed in the Judge Langford room, which was small, but we didn't need a huge suite. So that was fine! We would have appreciated the doors being a bit more thick and sound proofed since our room was close in proximity to a couple others, but it wasn't terrible at all. The afternoon wine and snacks along with the other food provided by the Inn is always good. The lemon bars they had in the evening were amazing. The location of the Gosby Inn is awesome. Tons of restaurants in walking distance, and a stroll down 17th takes you right to Lover's Point, and that is a view if there ever was any. We went to dinner at Favaloro's, which was decent. The gnocchi and Argentinian Malbec for dinner was delicious. I would recommend!!! Pacific Grove is a quiet little town that is perfect for a night or two to get away from home and relax.

We only stayed two nights, but would have liked longer. Room (Point Lobos) very comfortable, wasn't expecting bath with water jets, nice surprise, also separate toilet is good facility. Hotel very comfortable feeling, breakfasts simple but tasty and good. Would recommend.

Our Favorite

5 on October 10, 2017

This is our second time to stay at the Gosby House and we were every bit as pleased as the first time. It's location on the main street of Pacific Grove makes for easy dining, shopping, and it's within a short distance to the ocean. The staff is friendly, professional and helpful. The atmosphere is conducive to enjoying fellow travelers. We met people from Sweden and Denmark, as well as East Coast people. Breakfast and snacks are always delicious! We'll definitely go back again and highly recommend the Gosby House Inn!


Lovely bed

5 on October 06, 2017

The Four Sisters beds are always dreamy and comfortable. Room clean and well decorated. We both luxuriated in the soothing spa tub—the bubbles relieved our muscles from the bike ride along the coast. And the breakfast—always gourmet— always tasty! The staff friendly and welcoming


Favorite stay on the Monterey peninsula

Cozy, convenient, full of character and amazing value for the money.
