Introduction to the Seven Gables Inn
Updated: Oct 27
Built in 1886, The House of Seven Gables is a historic, three-story Victorian mansion
on the California coast. From its incredible promontory on the edge of the Monterey
Peninsula oceanfront, the property showcases unobstructed views of the Pacific
Ocean, Monterey Bay and the coastal mountains beyond.
At the end of the 19th century, Lucie Chase, a prominent civic leader and philanthropist,
purchased the property, adding the sweeping sun porches and gables from which
Seven Gables now gets its name. In 1972, the current owners purchased the property
and it remained a family home until 1982, when they reimagined the property as a bed
and breakfast inn.
The inn began with 14 rooms located in five buildings before the addition of the Beach
House. After renovating the original building (built in 1910), 10 guest rooms were
opened in 1995 under the name the Grand View Inn. Five years later, the Sea View
cottage was purchased and renovated, incorporating the building under the Grand
View Inn name. In 2006, the two inns were combined, transforming the property into
the 25-room, Seven Gables Inn. Currently operating as a boutique hotel, Seven Gables
consists of 7 separate structures totaling 25 rooms.
