We drive from Denver with our dog each October and always stay at the Vagabond's House Inn. Five years in a row, staying in room no. 5. We love everything about this little inn from the comfort of the room to the location. It's quiet and so friendly. I hope we can continue our tradition forever!

The staff was very friendly. When we arrived we were walked to our room. They are very pet friendly. They provided our dog with a blanket and treats for her in the morning when they delivered our breakfast. They inn is located off the beaten path so it was very quite.

From to check-in to check-out our visit was sublime! Thomas and Randall are hosts par excellence! Check in was effortless and streamlined. Our rooms were ready, spotless and well appointed and everything from (complementary) bottled mineral water to fruit to even a lovely and appreciated decanter of sherry was provided. The afternoon fireside wine and cheese reception was the perfect... More

My husband and I have visited Carmel approximately 25 times and the Vagabond is up there in the top 3 places we have stayed. Thomas and Randall knocked themselves out to make sure our stay was everything we dreamed of. The location is perfect and the rooms are cozy and quaint. Loved the fireplace. We gathered around the fire pit... More

A beautiful place to stay in Carmel, welcoming, warm, comfortable. So many wonderful details: charming, sunny room, flower-filled courtyard, wine and cheese around the firepit in the late afternoon, nice morning breakfast served in room. Highly recommend.

We were here celebrating my sister's milestone birthday. The inn keepers are fabulous, helpful, gracious and friendly. We spent some of our evenings at the firepit with wine. The property is quaint and gas lots of character. Close to shops and the beach. Recommended for couples, small groups or just a getaway. Will come back!!!

We recently stayed for one night at the Vagabond on our way through California. After a long day travelling, we were welcomed with wine and cheese tasting in the cosy reception room. The manager also enquired as to whether we had dinner reservations and provided us with menus from their highest recommended restaurants - we chose a French cuisine and... More

My wife and were planning to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary in Carmel and after researching on TripAdvisor we settled on the Vagabond House Inn. Unfortunately we were making last minute arrangements and they were not able to accommodate us in the same room for 5 straight nights so we stayed in 3 different rooms. The good news was that...

Loved our visit this past week at Vagabond! Nothing to improve upon, Vagabond is the BEST! Conveniently located to restaurants, wine tasting rooms, and the beach. This is my second stay here and won't be my last! Thanks again! from Mary Ross and Jessica Ross.
