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 had a lovely room with a wonderful view. Close to all the attractions of Cannery Row, yet far enough removed to be quiet. We walked everywhere. Enjoyed the hosts and other guests. Great breakfast! Dorothy and Rick were very helpful with dinner reservations and travel tips.

Property's Favorite Review
We spent 3 days in the TumTum Tree Cottage and had the best time. Rick and Suzanne were wonderful hosts whose B&B is beautiful, fascinating and full of life! The TumTum Cottage gave us privacy and space for 3 of us, and offered us a quiet refuge at the end of the day. Rick, Suzanne and Dorothy were generous with their helpful advice, tickets and conversation. Breakfast was delicious and the needs of our vegetarian daughter were always graciously remembered without reminder. The JabberJuice is a particularly fond memory which we have relived at home with the recipe. all in all, we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay while in Monterey.

We stayed there for a night and had an awesome time. The place is a wonderfully decorated and felt very cozy. The owners are very welcoming and overall we felt very comfortable being there. In addition, the breakfast and snacks were amazing and great for meeting other guests.

Nice place to stay and enjoy and the Monterey area. Loved how close this place is to the Cannery Row and many other sightseeing locations. Every attention to detail was noted! We were on the top floor and really enjoyed the private common area just outside our room. We will make a return trip next time we go to Monterey.

Rick and Suzanne were wonderful hosts offering recommendations and suggestions for dining and excursions. Accommodations were very comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious (and creative!). An excellent location as well--within easy walking distance to the cannery and along the Pacific Coast trail. Loved it.
