Inn at the Pinnacles


Our Story

Inn at the Pinnacles Bed & Breakfast is a family-owned Inn, located amongst private estate vineyards in the Gabilan Mountains of Monterey County. We are located just 5 minutes from the west entrance to Pinnacles National Park, where you’ll find natural beauty and solitude in the surrounding hills. Each room is uniquely decorated to reflect the vegetation of Pinnacles National Park.
In 1978, the Brosseau Family purchased an undeveloped 160-acre property in south Monterey County, located at 1600 feet elevation next to the world renowned Chalone Vineyard. Chalone Vineyard made the appellation famous by placing 3rd in the 1976 Paris Wine Tasting. Our plans were for a weekend getaway destination from the Bay Area and to plant a small vineyard. The Chalone Appellation is noted for its granite and limestone soils. The region receives very low rainfall, so water had to be trucked up the hill to irrigate the vineyard. Ultimately, Chalone Vineyard brought power, phone lines and an irrigation pipeline up the hill. Over the course of many years, our family has developed the vineyard to what it is today, a total of 45 acres.
Our family spent weekends and holidays at the property over the years. Because of its proximity to Pinnacles National Park (Monument at the time) the thought of someday having a Bed & Breakfast to share with guests came to mind. After breaking ground in 2000, many weekends were spent doing the “finish” work, which included tilework in the guest suites, painting, and decorating. Inn at the Pinnacles Bed & Breakfast opened in 2002 and has since welcomed guests from around the world.
