My husband and I had an amazing stay at the Vagabond's House Inn a few weeks ago. The property was beautiful and the room (room 1) was clean and very cozy. We had a fire in the fireplace each morning with breakfast before heading out to explore Carmel. The Inn is in a perfect location on a quiet street, but... More

Vagabond Inn was more delightful than we could have imagined. We went here for our 20th Anniversary. Our room overlooked a storybook courtyard cascading with colorful flowers and a melodious fountain. We could walk to the beach as well as the shops and restaurants of Carmel. We had a lovely bottle of wine waiting for us at check-in, the innkeepers... More

We really liked this place, and will definitely return. Loved the little court-yard and garden, and enjoyed our complimentary cheese and wine there in the evenings. Our room was very comfortable, and each morning a simple, but tasty breakfast was delivered to our room by a smiling staff-member. The front-desk staff were most helpful with area recommendations for dinner and... More

An absolutely charming B&B in the business district of Carmel. Blocks to endless restaurants and art galleries. The rooms are large and very comfortable, surrounding a beautifully landscaped courtyard. Wine and cheese every evening was a pleasure. Breakfasts were good but simple- cereal, bagel, yogurt, and fruit. This would have been fine for a couple of days, but we were... More

While in Carmel we stayed at the Vagabond house which was in walking distance to downtown and the beach. The inn is charming and the staff on site are friendly and helpful with area recommendations for dinner and sights to see. We stayed in a newly renovated room 10 which was so comfortable (bed was great) and had a working... More

We ended up staying in Carmel one night because we were just too tired to drive any further. We ended up at the Vagabond. Since it was off-season, there was availability, and we were able to get a room without having reserved in advance. The reception was very kind and helpful and prepared for us a cold breakfast (yogurt, hard... More

While some would argue the point of travel is find adventure or expand one's experiences, I would say everyone once in a while it should be just to smell the roses. We took a break from our hectic lives to experience a trip very akin to a Seinfeld episode. No physical goal, no crazy exotic location, no quest for enlightenment... More

Been away for 25 years and that was way too long for this magical experience. The rooms have everything you could wish for. Comfort, charming, two great chairs by the fireplace that burns real wood, a decanter of Sherry nearby, a superb king size bed, a made to order breakfast delivered to your room at your specified time and a...

This B&B is really worth to stay if you are in Carmel or around. The rooms are like small houses that are connected by a beautiful courtyard. Our room was spacious, clean and had a fireplace. On arrival we got a glas of wine and some freshly baked cookies (Thank you Thomas :-) ). The delicious breakfast containing a lot... More

This is a well run inn with all the creature comforts travelers enjoy. The rooms are spotless; the staff is welcoming and accommodating; the location allows parking your vehicle and exploring the town and beaches. Even in the summer it got cool but the in-room fireplace took the chill off. Plus, breakfast served in one's room -- well, just idyllic.... More
