After an amazing drive from San Diego up thru Big Sur, my wife and I arrived at the Vagabond's House Inn. The courtyard is filled with beautiful trees and flowers, and the sound of the calming waterfall greets you. We were a bit late, which was perfect because as we were being checked in we enjoyed some wine and cheese. The gentleman who checked us in was friendly and conversational and gave us a tour of our room. We stayed in #9 which has been remodeled and it's very nice. We loved the heating floors and my wife really liked the bluetooth shower speaker, nice touch! The bed was very comfortable and we slept with the windows open with the nice cool ocean air and the gentle sound of the waterfall in the courtyard it was perfect! Breakfast was better than expected, everything was tasty, even the fruit was very ripe and delish! We walked to breakfast, lunch, and dinner almost everyday. This was a great central place to hit the 17 mile drive, Monterey Bay Aquarium, shops, restaurants, etc. We hiked Point Lobos Reserve and had the highlight of our trip when we saw a humpback whale fully jump and breach out of the water twice! It was always cozy to come back to the Inn in the evening with lights in the trees of the courtyard and turn on the fireplace and enjoy some wine and goodies we picked up from a deli a few blocks away. It was a perfect anniversary getaway and we hope to find our way back soon!
