About

With its spectacular setting at water’s edge, the Green Gables Inn is perhaps the most beautiful and famous inn located in California. If you have the chance to visit this historic gem with its panoramic views of the Monterey Bay, it will be an experience you will never forget. Every detail in this exquisite Queen Anne Victorian, built in 1888, has been meticulously restored for your enjoyment. The Chapel Room is filled with lustrous mahogany, while the Gable Room has a ladder to a cozy attic room in the very gable itself. The Lacy Suite has a magnificent canopy bed. The friendly staff of the Green Gables Inn provides professional service with a great big smile. Each morning they prepare a bountiful breakfast, served in the dining room overlooking the rocky coastline. Afternoon tea is enjoyed in front of the fire in the parlor. Tickets to the Aquarium, bicycles for a ride into Pebble Beach and a variety of books and games are all available at the inn. Make your reservation well in advance for a very special getaway.

We stayed at the B&B for one night, and it was a grand time. The location is the best feature of the property. There is also much charm to the building overall. When we are passing through, we will be sure to make this a place to stay again.


A Lovely Stay in the Chapel Room

3.8 on September 30, 2017

We stayed for a special 3-days. We loved staying at Green Gables. We were walking distance from the Monterey Aquarium, shops and restaurants, but what we loved the most was being able to see and hear the sounds of the bay from our room. Sea Otters, Seals, many seabirds and the sounds of the waves. I love the smell of the kelp! It's the smell of the sea! We really enjoyed the fresh fruit, baked goods and entrees at breakfast too! Delicious! I would have given a 5 for the room, we just had one constructive criticism. Upon entering the room each time there was a bitter or pungent smell. I encourage GG to investigate hat. Otherwise, everything met or exceeded our expectations. We only wish we could have stayed longer... next time we will!

Green Gables a fun place to stay

4.0 on August 13, 2017

We really enjoyed celebrating two special birthdays at the Green Gables. Weather was great so we could sit in the window watching the sea life - saw whales, otters, and sea lions. Room was very comfortable, staff was quite nice and helpful when we needed anything. Parking is not great (have to park on the street except for one handicap spot) but the location is super.


Beautiful getaway

The Green Gables is a perfect setting for a relaxing vacation getaway - our room had a wonderful view of the ocean, and this inn is in an excellent location for access to hiking, running, kayaking, etc. You won't be disappointed if you stay here.


California Dreaming

4.6 on August 01, 2017

Enjoyed a night in this beautiful inn with my college daughter. We were exploring California from LA to Yosemite to Monterey to LA. The inn was charming. Service relaxed and welcoming. We had everything we needed.in this beautiful setting. The location was wonderful. Beds could use a mattress topper and towels need some upgrading but overall was wonderful.


Can't Wait for a Return Visit

Lovely inn and the location just can't be beat. We thoroughly enjoyed our three day stay and are looking forward to another visit. Green Gables is a lovely old home, with some very modern amenities (the bathroom was well equipped and relaxing). The service was excellent, they are efficient and eager to please. Breakfast had something for each of us, but frankly almost anything would taste good when you have that view! We walked everywhere we wanted to go (we loved the trolley service from the Aquarium), then came back in the afternoon and enjoyed the wine and cheese service. Our room was in the carriage house, on the third floor, which is not a climb for the unfit, but the view made it worth the effort. The very large seagulls crash landing on the roof at 5:30AM was disconcerting at first, but tolerable once you figure out what it is. A lovely way to spend our "birthday week" (they had balloons in our room!) and we certainly plan to do so again.


Lovely stay

The green gables inn is quite enchanting. It overlooks the ocean. It is elegant and feels like stepping back in time. The only negative is the wine is really bad/cheap during the wine and apps hour. However, this has been consistent at all of the sisters inns.


Beautiful Location

4.6 on July 17, 2017

Had the opportunity to stay on a Saturday night and this property could not be any more charming. Located across from the bay, the Green Gables had the location nailed. With the ocean and walking paths across the street and lots of dining options nearby, this site is perfect for a stay in Monterey or Pacific Beach. Decorated in turn of the century style, this place is great on the visuals. The check in was quick and the young lady could not have been more kind or professional. She offered to help with our luggage and gave us a tour of the property. She gave us the history of the house and let us know the time for breakfast. Breakfast was served in a beautiful dining room and seating offers views of the bay. Breakfast itself was disappointing, the only disappointment of the trip. Breakfast was cereals, breads, fruit with typical breakfast beverages offered. Only protein was boiled eggs. At the last Four Sisters we stayed at the had Eggs Benedict and the one before that, eggs and bacon. We ended up at McDonald's as we had a 6 hour drive. I would stay here but there are several more Four Sister Inns that we want to try.So maybe after that. The Four Sisters Inns are always staffed with great people and charming properties in great locales. Worth a visit.
