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!

My Husband and I had the most wonderful and memorable experience ever. We both love Carmel and Monterey. I was searching for a place to stay in Carmel and after extensive research I found The Vagabound's House. 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

My last visit to Carmel began early October with great warm weather and a wonderful visit with my brother who was speaking at a conference in Asilomar. My brother continued his trip to LA and my husband returned to work in Canada and I chose to stay a couple of weeks longer so I appealed to Thomas at The Vagabond... More

From the moment we arrived the experience was memorable. We had to wait a few minutes for a family in front of us. We were offered wine and cheese in front of a cheery fire in the lobby while we waited. Our host helped us pick a restaurant for dinner within walking distance. His recommendation was outstanding. We had a... More

Looking solely as a hotel/B&B, it is already sensational. First, you are in Carmel. Then, lots of perks, very clean, nicely decorated, beautiful, very well located, etc. However, from the moment we arrived, we felt spoiled! Breakfast in the room (with everything you want, and at the time you want), heated floor in the bathroom, free (good!) wine and cheese... More

Gorgeous little boutique hotel, super friendly staff, lovely orchids and a decanter of brandy in the room. Lovely comfy bed and nice bathroom with fluffy white towels. They don't do food, but can recommend some great, very close restaurants for dinner. Well worth a visit. Not overly priced considering the location and the standard.
