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.

Anniversary

5 on May 13, 2018

We stayed at the Green Gables Inn for our honeymoon in 1984. We came back for our 34th anniversary & had a great time. Everything was perfect from the staff, our room, breakfast, the views, & the neighborhood. We’ll definitely be back!


What a spot

4.4 on April 25, 2018

What a spot. Oh my we loved the balcony room and the fact that it's only accross the street from the ocean. The afternoon wine and snacks was amazing! Location is amazing. Would recommend to anyone!


Wonderful time

Review of Green Gables Inn

3.6 on April 11, 2018

Very clean and lovely house. Spectacular view of the ocean. Excellent breakfast and very nice afternoon wine and snacks. We rated the service low as we were disappointed with the lack of local area knowledge the staff has of things to do and places to go other than the obvious and well known. For example, no one knew about any local live theater which we found on our own and very close by. We were told the Lighthouse was only a one mile walk and it actually was three miles as a result we didn't get there on time to go inside the Lighthouse. People did not know about restaurants who serve Vegan food.


Monterey weekend

4.6 on March 22, 2018

We stayed in the main house so it was convenient for the late night tea or cookie! The view from the sitting room of the water is amazing! We enjoyed eating afternoon snacks or breakfast and watch the otters play in the waves. The main house has central air, so if you prefer the room to be on the cooler side, you might need to open windows since the vents make a high pitch sound when closed.


Great Location

We checked in for five days. Great location-by the ocean, walk into town and a quick drive to pebble and spyglass. Great cookies and scones.


One more time...

Pretty sure I've already done this one, but no matter. Can never say enough good about the Four Sister group and Green Gables in particular. Perhaps because we like Pacific Grove and the Lover's Point area in particular, but could also be that the manager and staff here are just extra good...


Wonderful!

Our Balcony room overlooked the ocean. What a spectacular view. The furnishings are beautiful, and the inn gives you the feeling that you belong here. The staff are very welcoming, and the delicious breakfast in the morning and treats in the afternoon are a plus.


Relaxing Retreat

5 on March 05, 2018

We had a very enjoyable stay last week (late February 2018). The location is hard to beat, across the street from the water, a close walk to fisherman’s wharf & the aquarium & an easy walking distance to the shops in Pacific Grove. Carmel is a quick drive away. We had a partial view of the ocean from our room & balcony. The service is commendably excellent. Honey & Ivy were great, as was the service from everyone we encountered. The bathroom was beautiful & very clean. A small separate room for the toilet. The bathtub is immense and with jets. There is a separate shower stall with shampoo, conditioner & wash dispensers. The separate seating area has good lighting for reading, books & refrigerator The bed had nice linens & was very comfortable. There were also nice chairs by the gas fireplace. Our only complaint would be the heater was a little noisy.


Wonderful Stay
