We were anticipating our stay at Seven Gables Inn after reading all the glowing reviews. From the moment we were enthusiastically greeted by Athena at the front desk and taken to our room, Ocean Mist, we knew we had made the right choice. The view was breathtaking and the room was beautiful. The colors were shades of blue, just like...

The bed and breakfast is much more than just a bed and breakfast. The breakfast was absolutely wonderful with so many options available. Hot and cold cereal, yogurts from many different companies, eggs and sausage or bacon on the days we were there. There were cheeses, fruit, breads, meats options, croissants and other pastries, and everything was fresh. Coffee, tea,...

We stayed at the Seven Gables Inn in mid-April. It is a lovely property right on Monterey Bay. It is within walking distance of shops and restaurants and there is a paved path across the street that takes you along the bay into Monterey. We loved staying here. Our room faced the bay and had two overstuffed chairs with a...

My room, Cypress, was beautiful with a very comfortable bed and linens and a fabulous view. Both sheer drapes and "blackout" drapes are provided (and shades for the two stained glass windows). Good wine (local) and nibbles at the wine hour, good breakfast with many choices on the buffet. Service was good. The whole place is very clean. The public...

Seven Gables is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places we have stayed. The location with view is amazing! Our 2 bed/2bath cottage was perfect for 2 couples. One bedroom up and one down. Very private. Had a lovely living with kitchen and dining area. Breakfast was delicious and the views from the dining room cannot be beat....
