The Jabberwock Inn is an incredible find in Monterey. We had a late check-in and waiting for us were keys, a very nice welcome letter with thorough instructions, and best of all....homemade cookies and milk! Our room was comfortable and quaint. Everything was clean and the décor was beautiful and right on point with the name of the Inn.....it was... More

My husband and I spent two nights in this fun inn and we really enjoyed ourselves. The hosts, Rick and Suzanne, are super friendly and be sure to ask them for their recommendations on a variety of items. We got great advice on places to eat and visit. We also bought a 2 days for the price of 1 day... More

My wife and I were married in San Diego and drove the coast for our honeymoon. This was our first stop and had no expectations upon arrival. However from the moment you get there it is and experience like no other. Upon the greeting from the caretaker we were brought in to a beautiful house that is, like its name... More

We only stayed one night at the Jabberwock Inn, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We booked the ‘Tulgey Wood’ room, which was very, very small, with a private bathroom down the hall. If we were staying longer, I would have stayed in a different room, but this was adequate for one night. We met other guests in the early evening... More

My wife and I stayed here two nights while doing day trips to the Aquarium and Carmel by the sea. The Jabberwock was an excellent place to stay. The hosts and owner were great to meet and extremely helpful in recommending places to eat and things to do in the area. The room was very comfortable and cozy, as one... More

My husband and I have recently returned from an amazing holiday in California for a period of 3 weeks and this little gem of a hotel has been the most delightful inn we have found. The room (Mimsy ) had a beautiful view over the bay and despite the fact that it was quite small it was impeccably clean, had... More

We stayed in the Mome Rath room May 21-22. After a "broken airplane" and having to drive to a different airport, we arrived at Jabberwock with another couple at midnight ( 3am our time) after a 23 hour travel day. John and Dawn were kind enough to leave cheese and crackers and a bottle of wine in our room. It... More

My wife and I stayed at the Jabberwock last May for 4 nights and truly enjoyed the experience. It is a beautifully maintained grand house loaded with impressive antiques, whimsical Alice In Wonderland decor, and many areas both inside and outside to just sit, relax, and enjoy the quiet surroundings. With homemade cookies and beverages always available, this is the... More

My partner and I have stayed at this property three times, and enjoyed ourselves immensely; so much so that we celebrated our 10th anniversary here in one of the special suites. Dawn and John are gracious hosts who go out of their way to provide an intimate experience for all their guests. Sure, there may be "too much sugar" for... More

This craftsman-style home awaits you, gardens entice you, rooms overlook the bay, some with fireplaces and Jacuzzis, down comforters snuggle you in, and faint sounds of sea lions bark you to sleep. Imagine awaking to hints of breakfast wafting up the stairwell, 5 o'clock sherry and nibblers, cookies and milk at bedtime. Imagine...walking to the Aquarium, Cannery Row, Fisherman Wharf or biking along 17-Mile Drive, browsing Carmel shops. Imagine...falling into the rabbit hole and finding The Jabberwock. ... more   less
