Guests appreciate the inn's one-of-a-kind good looks, and its unparalleled location adjacent to the Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail--ideal for walking or biking with a Pacific view.

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. The thorough refurbishing of this lovely structure shows the careful research that went into returning it to its original state. The interior has been thoughtfully decorated with beautiful antiques. The exterior, with its cheerful yellow paint and welcoming front porch, is among the most attractive of the restored buildings in Pacific Grove.

In 2000, a local Sonoma winemaker approached former Four Sisters Inns President Shelley Post to discuss a piece of property he owned in town, just a block off the Sonoma Plaza. She agreed that the location seemed ideal for a small hotel, perfect for guests who would enjoy walking right out the door to the shops, restaurants and historic attractions such as the 1823 Mission San Francisco Solano. Construction of the Inn at Sonoma took place in 2002, with Shelley applying her innkeeper’s eye to all phases of development. She worked closely with California designer Shirley Jensen to create a warm and hospitable environment, in sync with the casual Sonoma wine country lifestyle. Their instincts were spot-on; from the moment it opened, Inn at Sonoma has been a favorite with visitors who appreciate special touches like the outdoor hot tub and fireplaces in every guest room. In 2013, a detached cottage on the property was completely remodeled adding eight guestrooms to the Inn at Sonoma. Rooms in the Vintner’s Cottage boast either one king or two queen beds, each with a fireplace, and four with jetted tubs.
