I always recommend Vagabond's House Inn to friends and family. I've been coming to the inn for close to 20 years and always find it a place that leaves me feeling rested and happy. The staff is wonderful, particularly Margie, Vickie and Cindy (who fills in sometimes). They are kind, thoughtful, friendly people who go out of their way to... More

The staff was friendly, our room was around the back of one of the bldgs with a small pond and lots of flowers. The room itself was decorated nicely. Even had cherry in the room. Two plush bathropes for us to use. Very quite.Between 5-7 the office has cheese, crackers and wine for guest to take. The night before you... More

We just spent one night but wish we had more time! Great place to stay. We were traveling without our kids and were specifically looking for places that were romantic and not designed with kids in mind...this place was perfect. Very quaint and relaxing. We were there for Oscars night and enjoyed the nice TV for viewing...They even called from... More

I have stayed at the Vagabond 3 times, and going back next month. I've stayed with family, and with my husband. Couldn't be more perfect. Flowers, beautiful courtyard, wine/cheese tasting every evening, cozy romantic rooms with fireplaces, and a great location! You truly can't ask for a cuter place. Don't be alarmed, this is an older look but still romantic.... More

Enjoyable holiday for NEW YEARS. Quaint B&B with very nice staff. A little expensive with a pet.

I think the guest cottages were built in the '30's, '40's(?). There's even an old phone booth still on the property. But they have been updated and maintained. The courtyard is beautiful with an old tree and flowers, fountain flowing. The main office is the original old house that belonged to an author who was one of the early Carmel... More

We (myself, husband and golden retriever Chester) just got back from a one night stay at Vagabond House Inn. It was my birthday and we just wanted a short mid-week getaway. We stayed in room #3 which had a fireplace and small kitchen. This room also had a king bed along with a twin bed against a window. I loved... More

We happened across the Vagabond by accident during the Jan 08 storms and wow, were we happy we did. This little place was a haven of peace and relaxation and our initial one night stay turned into a four day break! All thoughts of the storms outside were completely forgotten in front of the massive gas fire in our cosy... More

This was a lovely place for a several day stay in Carmel. I loved the option to have breakfast in the courtyard and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.

I had hoped to stay at Vagabond House Inn on a previous visit to Monterey Peninsula but it didn't work out that time. This time I booked for two nights in one of the smaller rooms. I didn't need a kitchen as I was looking forward to visiting several restaurants in the area. The evening clerk was more than helpful... More
