    I stayed for a conference since the conference hotel was booked and I’m so glad I did. My room had a cozy fireplace and a stunning view of the bay. The whole property is charming, as are the staff. Plenty of nooks to settle into in the public...

Set on a half-acre of fanciful gardens, our 1911 Craftsman bed and breakfast has fabulous views of Monterey Bay. Named after the Lewis Carroll poem Jabberwocky, the ambiance of our inn is light-hearted, warmly comfortable and decidedly upscale. In the evening, join us for wine and hors d'oeuvres on the enclosed sun porch. Here our guests mingle and discuss the day's trending topics and of course their dinner plans. Ready to settle in for the night, you'll find comfy and inviting historic beds with cozy sheets and down comforters. Three romantic rooms include Jacuzzi tubs and fireplaces. Wake up to a striking sunrise or perhaps the soft sounds of the bay muted by the morning marine layer. Fresh coffee and a scrumptious breakfast await you. Lively conversation and shared adventures make it easy to plan your day's journey.
After twenty-seven years in the Hotel business Suzanne and I (Rick) discovered the fun and joy of the Monterey peninsula. Originally from New Orleans, our family moved to California in 2005 and we have lived on the Peninsula since 2009. In taking over the inn we have decided to make beautiful Monterey our permanent home and, we look forward to welcoming you and making your stay a magical adventure! - Rick and Suzanne
The Jabberwock is five short blocks above John Steinbeck's Cannery Row. Visit Doc Rickett's Lab, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, or perhaps a wine tasting room. Old Fisherman's Wharf is just around the corner and there are over 25 restaurants in the area. The Monterey/Pacific Grove recreation trail, offers a wonderful walking, jogging, and biking path with stirring views of the bay and its marine life. Perhaps you will discover the tide pools of Asilomar beach or kayak at Lover's Point. Enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells while pondering the history and lives lived here. Watch for a whale…there she blows! Or explore further to Carmel-by-the-Sea, Pebble Beach, Point Lobos and Big Sur.
