WELCOME TO JABBERWOCK INN of Monterey, California. Set on a half-acre of fanciful gardens, this 1911 Craftsman-style bed and breakfast inn provides fabulous views of the Monterey Bay with its famous sea otters and seals. In the afternoon, wine and hors d'oeuvres are served on the enclosed sun porch and after dinner, guests are treated to homemade cookies and milk. When you're ready to settle in for the evening, you'll find cozy beds complete with comfy sheets and comforters. Three rooms include Jacuzzi tubs for two and fireplaces. Sleep soundly, knowing that a scrumptious breakfast awaits you. The Jabberwock is only five short blocks above Cannery Row (made famous by author John Steinbeck). Visit Doc Rickett's Lab on Cannery Row, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Carmel -by-the-Sea, Pebble Beach, Old Fisherman's Wharf and Point Lobos/Big Sur from our Monterey Bed & Breakfast. The Monterey/Pacific Grove recreation trail, just four blocks down the hill, offers an extraordinary walking path.

We found Jabberwock Inn to far exceed our expectations when we stayed there in January 2019 for my wife's birthday. Both owners, Rick and Suzanne, were extremely helpful as was the rest of the staff (especially Dorothy who assisted us beyond the norm when Ellen fell at the beach

This lovely artfully decorated home looking down on the Monterey Bay coastline is filled with lovely Alice in Wonderland decor (also Steinbeck). Our room even had a paperback copy of Through the Looking Glass tucked away in a drawer. There is a lovely garden in the back, a

When is breakfast served?
Hi Chelsea, We spoke a couple of moments after your question, but just in case I will answer again. Breakfast is served from 8:30 to 9:30 in the main dining area and on the sun porch. Some folks come down for coffee which is served by about 7:15. Others sleep in and come down right closer to 9:30. If this is too "early" just chat with us and we will try to make some sort of accommodation. Best regards, Rick
