If you are interested in experiencing Victorian elegance with a spectacular ocean view than Seven Gables Inn is your answer. This property is one of the best we stayed at in all of our travels. The location is great and every room has a view to the beach and the ocean. The property is pristinely maintained and the staff is friendly and helpful. Every room offers a different experience and décor lots of beautiful leaded glass windows with antique furniture and a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. The beds are really comfortable which makes the experience very relaxing. The Inn is excellently located nearby the Monterey Aquarium, beaches, the 17 mile road and shopping areas. The location has great paths for walking or biking along the coast line. The staff has thought of everything including making sure there is a set of binoculars in every room so that you can enjoy the seals and dolphins frolicking in the water. The main area of the Inn is nicely appointed and allows for afternoon wine and cheese while enjoying the beautiful view. The breakfast every morning was outstanding with a great number of choices and great service. Lots of nice restaurants within walking distance with a variety of choices. Top it all off with cookies and great coffee waiting in the main house in the evening. We had a wonderful time and have decided to make Seven Gables Inn a place to come back every year. We highly recommend the Seven Gables for a wonderful relaxing experience. By the way they clean the windows very often so you always get a perfect view - outstanding.

Room Tip: Every room is outstanding but the Beach House has some of the best views and breakfast is served on...

The premises are beautiful--very clean and very well attended. The breakfast every morning was outstanding and the attention to detail was wonderful. Every morning there were different things to choose from as well as established favorites. Arthur, at the front desk, was especially helpful. We wanted to pack some fragile items to take with us on our journey home and he went out of his way to find boxes for all of them, with a wonderful, cheerful smile, as always..

We recently stayed for the memorial day weekend. What an amazing place. Service was top notch. The Seascape room was comfortable, well furnished and made us feel like royalty.
Morning breakfast was always amazing. Food fresh, tasty, and plentiful. Wine and cheese in the afternoon was something we will remember.
All the guest were amazing. Something about staying in a bed and breakfast that brings out the best in people. We meet people from all over the united states. Many of them were repeat visitors to the Inn.
Above all, the staff was amazing. From the desk, the meals, to the service staff, this is without a doubt the best experience I've had. I am planning on returning simply because of the highly quality and standards of the staff. Above and beyond my expectations.
I could go on for quite a while, but lets sum it up. Amazing staff, room, view, food, and location. What more could a couple ask for!!!!

Room Tip: Almost all rooms have a view of Monterey Bay. Simply choose your price range and you won't be d...

The Seven Gables B &B was first class all the way. The rooms were clean and quiet. The breakfasts which are included were delicious and service was superb. We receieved a tour on arriving and offered assistance in every way. I would highly recommend this B & B with awesome views of the ocean. All the staff are friendly and always ready to help.

Room Tip: Request a room with an ocean view it is worth the extra cost. No swimming pool. No exercise centre...

This is the second time that my husband and I have spent time at this fantastic Victorian B&B. Each time we stay we are amazed at the first rate service and relaxing atmosphere; this is one place that we want to come back to again and again. Within a easy stroll to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and some really wonderful eateries. The Lover's Point park is delightful, the vistas awesome, and the service and breakfast at the in first rate. This is the "posh" place that you always dreamed of. Each room is delightfully appointed and decorated in period décor. The grounds are quaint and charming. The main house (the original home) is spectacular and you will feel pampered and fussed over by the evening turn-down service, afternoon wine and cheeses, and late night homemade cookies and milk. Every room has binoculars to whale watch, otter watch, people watch, and sailboat watch to your hearts content. We even borrowed our pair for the 17 mile drive to Carmel which starts at the Inn. We can't recommend the Seven Gables enough!

Room Tip: Views from the main house are spectacular! Truly, not a bad room in the Inn.

Our stay here was wonderful. We were in the carriage house which was away from the main house but this made it very romantic. The breakfast was very good and the afternoon snacks were so good we had to rush back every afternoon during our stay. And the view is fabulous.

You can't go wrong with this gorgeous Bed & Breakfast. We stayed in the Seal Rocks room where you can see nothing but beautiful blue water when you lay in bed...looking out the nine foot wide window. From start to finish we felt welcomed and relaxed. The breakfast was delicious and so beautifully served. The B & B is located across the street from a walking path where you can stroll (or jog) to your hearts content. We walked along it to Cannery Row and the Aquarium (less than a mile) and saw the seals with their pups on the beach. If you want a luxurious spot to vacation, right by the water, you can't do any better than the Seven Gables Inn. I only wish the rooms were a little less expensive so we could have afforded to stay another night...but we picked a room with a wonderful view. It will definitely be our favorite Bed and Breakfast on the California coast !

Room Tip: Seal Rocks room was awesome...the view is unbelievable.
