This charming Victorian country inn was built by J.F. Gosby, a native of Nova Scotia and a cobbler by trade. He began building the home in 1886 and took up residence there in 1888. Gosby opened his home to seasonal visitors attending the various religious and educational meetings held all summer long in Pacific Grove. Gosby never seemed to have enough rooms for all who wished to stay, and he enlarged the inn several times. The inn is an excellent example of the Queen Ann architecture, with a rounded corner tower, variety of surface textures and bay windows. Called El Carmelo Hotel by previous owners, the Gosby House Inn gained its current name and appearance in 1978 when it was purchased and restored by the Post family. Following the Green Gables Inn, it became the second property in the Four Sisters Inns collection.

  • In the 1700s, Spanish missionaries arrived in the rugged and unsettled lands of California to spread Catholicism. They would establish 21 Spanish missions from San Diego de Alcala to San Francisco de Solano. The picturesque missions were all constructed from 1769 to 1833.

    Today, five must-see missions stand out as ideal places to visit and explore: Mission San Diego de Alcala, Mission San Luis Obispo, Mission Santa Barbara, Mission San Miguel Archangel& Mission San Juan Capistrano

    By 1847, California would be recognized as a U.S. territory and by 1848 gold would be discovered at Sutter’s Mill which would harken a rush of gold-seekers that was unparalleled in American history. Everyone wanted to strike it rich by finding their fortune in the creeks and countryside of the region.

    In 1850, California was declared the 31st state. Today it is the third biggest state and follows only Alaska and Texas for sheer size. It is now home to millions of acres of farmland which makes it the leader in all agricultural production in the United States. In addition, it has the reputation of being a tourist hotspot with attractions like Yosemite National Park, Golden Gate Bridge, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Alcatraz, Disneyland, and Angel Island.

  • Weather

  • Although the terrain of California varies, the weather is typically mild in most areas with the average temperature holding at around 50 degrees Fahrenheit to 80 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year. The days are usually sunny and there is extraordinarily little rain. The average humidity holds at around 65 percent. One nice perk about Cali is that the nights are usually very mild. You can often get by with nothing but a sweater. The mountainous regions will see snowfall. Most people feel that the best time to visit the state weather-wise is in the spring or autumn when temperatures tend to remain very stable.

  • Food and Drink

  • Everyone knows that true foodies love California. You can choose from so many different types of foods, drinks, and places to dine such as simple eateries to upscale restaurants. Food has a place in history within the state. Ancient Egyptians might have created sourdough bread, but it was a family of bakers that made the unusual bread famous during the state’s Gold Rush. Boudin, the country’s oldest baker, still calls San Francisco home. Traditional Mexican food is also a must-enjoy staple for anyone visiting or residing in the state. San Francisco is even credited with creating the famous fortune cookie. In fact, a battle raged between Los Angeles and San Francisco because both wanted to proclaim themselves the origin of the cookie.
