We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Vagabond House Inn. Our second floor room was clean and comfortable with a nice view (and even a window seat). The fireplace was a nice addition and kept the room cozy. The staff were extremely friendly. And the breakfast each morning was tasty and just the right amount of food to... More

We spent two nights at Vagabond's House Inn early November. The place is very cute and is made up of a number of little English cottages around a beautiful garden with a water fountain. We stayed in a room on the second floor overlooking the open-space. It's not a big room but it is fully furnished with a fire-place, fridge... More

We just came back from a weeklong trip to California, ending in San Diego for Thanksgiving with family. En route, we stopped at the Vagabond's House for a night, and boy are we glad we did. This place is lovely, charming and well located to explore Carmel. Wish we had more time to stay and visit the town, but even... More

We originally had planned to stay for 1 night but loved the hotel and Carmel so much we stayed for 3. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms were beautiful (we stayed in 2 different ones)... More

This charming B&B was a perfect choice. Located in the heart of Carmel, it is a convenient walk to great restaurants and shopping. The grounds were beautiful with bright flowers. I stayed in two different rooms. The first was quaint and had a wood burning fireplace and was divine. The second room (switch due to scheduling) was more upscale with... More

Just returned from a very pleasant, 4-night stay at the Vagabond's House Inn. The property has been nicely upgraded since our last visit over 15 years ago. Our large room (#4) facing the pretty, central courtyard had a spacious, open-feeling bedroom/sitting room with a wood-burning fireplace, full kitchen, ample bathroom with rain shower, storage space, and comfortable bed. It was... More

The Vagabonds House Inn is a charming B&B Inn that is pet-friendly in the center of the town of Carmel. The staff is welcoming, the rooms are updated and always maintained pristinely. Pets are provided large blankets and treats. Having stayed here many times in the last 32 years, we appreciate the helpful, informative, friendly staff and the pet-friendly atmosphere!

Everyone knows how particular I am about service and accommodation's (Both are a pet peeve of mine). After reading the reviews and looking... More
