We've stayed several times at the Vagabond Inn. We always bring our two big dogs. The Inn is very quaint, in a really nice part of town and the staff is very helpful and friendly. They give you big fluffy dog blankets and a bowl of bones for your babies with breakfast. The room we stay in has a dutch... More

We stayed for 2 nights in late October 2010. We had room 5 which overlooks the courtyard, which is a charming spot with lots of plants and a little waterfall, although unfortunately a little chilly to sit outside when we were there. The rooms surround the courtyard, some single storey, some double. Room 5 is a single storey building, so... More

This was our first weekend away with our new Golden Retriever puppy (19 mos) & his first experience at the beach. Our room was very comfortable & cozy. Thomas & his staff extended themselves in many ways to make us all feel welcome ... sherry & fruit in our room, wine & cheese in the late afternoon, warm cookies in... More

Beautiful, spotless room with a fireplace. Convenient to everything. We were celebrating a special anniversary and Thomas made sure that we were comfortable. Can't wait to return!

Our stay was made particularly enjoyable because of the efforts of the staff to make our experience as satisfying as possible. The room and ambience was great...quiet, clean, and inviting. A great complimentary breakfast served in our room each morning. We are very particular guests and were completely satisfied. Staff member Michelle Pisciotta was a standout with her great personality,... More

My wife and I picked Vagabond's House Inn based on Trip Advisor reviews and it did not disappoint. It was perfectly quaint & comfortable, and Thomas's hospitality made it even more enjoyable. Location is great - a few blocks from the center of town but not surrounded by commerce. Carmel is a phenomenal place and I would definitely stay here... More

The Vagabond's Inn is a very eccentric sort of place that looks a bit like a beach shack! Our room (4a) was very comfortable with a nice queen sized bed with a canopy. It was charmingly decorated in blues and had a little trickling water feature outside the door which made a charming sound. Sadly, our room was terribly noisy!!!... More

Our second trip here was even better than the first. Real emphasis on service - Jack at the desk not only made sure our room was good, he went above and beyond to make sure our whole trip was great! I would definitely recommend the Vagabond' House!

From the begining to the end, we had a very restful time in a wonderful atmosphere. The Inn is so quiet and accomodating and yet is so close to everything we wanted to do within walking distance. It was a worthwhile destination.
