This B&B is a must stay if visiting Monterey! My friend and I travelled through California and stayed here sadly just for 1 night but it was our favourite stay of the whole trip. The owners (apologies for forgetting their names) are fantastic people! They were so welcoming and showed us around the B&B first of all so we felt... More

This was my second time staying here at the inn. I surprised my husband with a weekend getaway. We stayed in the Borogove which is a huge room with a jacuzzi, couch, and a round dining table with two chairs. The room has a huge window that overlooks the bay. The house in General is beautiful with wonderland charm. I... More

My husband and I checked into the Jabberwock around 3pm on Februrary 24, 2013, for a two-night stay. The reception at the Inn was very warm and welcoming. We just loved the house with all its quirky antiques. The dining room is beautiful and has a view through the porch of the Bay. The surrounding gardens definitely provide privacy from... More

We checked in without reservation. Lucky us! Parking on premises. It was a small and cozy room with sherry on the nightstand. Afternoon appetizers and wine are served. Yum! There is tea and coffe and cookies available. The breakfast was wonderful and the table filled with other guests made for lively conversation. Internet was a bit slow, but we didn't... More

My boyfriend and I went to Monterey just to get away from Sacramento for the extended holiday weekend. We wanted a nice place to stay but didn't care for a big hotel room so he found the Jabberwok Inn and booked it! What a gem! We booked the Toves Room. When we got there, the owners were actually out on... More

My fiance and I have celebrated our anniversary in Monterey 2 years in a row now and our last trip we stayed at the Jabberwock. We stayed in the Mome Rath room and it was the cutest little room with a comfy, large bed, big jacuzzi tub and a great view of the bay. The fireplace was the perfect addition... More

The Jabberwock Inn is an experience. From the gardens, to the decorations and the delicious spread put on each morning by Dawn and John for breakfast. We stayed in the Toves room that even came with a gas fireplace! So cool! It took us a while to figure out the mattress (adjustable comfort level) to find the next day housekeeping... More

The reviews on trip advisor convinced us to stay at this place - even though when we booked the only room available was the smaller one with the washroom down the hall. Going with our gut we booked this room and certainly glad we did. John and Dawn make this place a "home away from home" - though I certainly... More

Finally, a lodging I can wholeheartedly recommend. This establishment was run by two very gracious hosts who really "get it". From hors d'oeuvres and wine in the evening as well as homemade cookies and milk in the afternoon , they also provide robes and lap blankets in the rooms. John did a thorough walk thru of all the inn had... More

While a on a quick weekend trip to San Francisco, we stayed one evening at the Jabberwock Inn, and after meeting John and Dawn, getting a quick tour and then enjoying wine and hor'derves, we wanted to stay there the entire weekend! Wonderful hospitality, comfortable rooms and a delicious breakfast, a great start to an amazing weekend!!! Would definitely recommend... More
