Description

Circa 1886. Imagine the picturesque and romantic setting of Seven Gables Inn in Pacific Grove, California with waves crashing along the rocky shoreline of the Pacific Ocean. Sea otters and whales are viewed regularly from this elegant inn. Sunsets accent the surrounding mountains. The natural beauty is complemented by an eclectic selection of comfortable accommodations and furnishings in a cluster of seven historic buildings. Stay in the three-story 1886 Main House, Arbor Garden Cottage, Carriage House, Seaview Cottage, Guest House, Jewell Cottage or the Beach House. Savor a bountiful breakfast and gather for afternoon wine and cheese. Munch on homemade cookies served with milk in the evening. Outstanding service and hospitality make this inn an especially delightful retreat.
