This place is wonderful. The staff are so helpful and friendly. The Vagabond is tucked in a beautiful location surrounded by stunning trees. The reception area is very cosy with a fireplace and wine and cheese. The room was large, light, and airy and had a lovely bathroom with bathrobes. Very pleasant surprise when they brought breakfast to our room... More

Carmel is a quaint and cozy place to stay, so why not look for a place to match? Vagabond House is tucked away on a side street with an easy walk to some of Carmel's best shopping and restaurants. The rooms are beautifully decorated, with a fireplace, comfortable overstuffed antique chairs, and a bottle of sherry or port to enjoy... More

Our experience at Vagabond was excellent - Although only staying 1 night it was everything we wanted, and more. Perfect location, helpful staff, the rooms are spacious beyond belief and the fire was an added extra that just made the whole stay more cosy, and comfortable. I couldn't recommend a better place to stay in Carmel.

My wife and I travelled to Carmel in November and stayed at the Vagabonds House Inn. We booked our accommodation there after reading so many great reviews about the Inn on Tripadvisor. Our experience exceeded our already high expectations. The staff all go the extra mile in making your stay as pleasant and hospitable as possible. Thomas (the Inn Keeper)... More

We stayed at the Vagabond's House Inn for two nights and enjoyed our stay. We had room 4A, which we were warned would be small, but having just spent three nights in San Francisco, we actually found it to be quite large! I think it's a good size for those traveling as a couple. The room wasn't the most stylish... More

Decided at the last minute since the weather was so pretty to run down to Carmel for a couple of nights between Christmas and New Year. And we wanted to bring our dog. And wanted to be within walking distance of everything. Not too much to ask with 2 hours notice, eh? So I started dialing around. I got lucky,... More

Such a cute place. I loved the small details. The welcome wine and cheese, the wood fireplace, the upgrade, the curtains that could be pulled down for both light and privacy, the big tub for bathing, the delicious morning breakfast, fruit basket and chilled water. Everything was delightful!

We are winding up our three day New Years stay to celebrate our anniversary. Over the past six anniversaries we have picked many romantic stays from Savannah, Charleston, New Orleans but I think we can honestly say this was the best. Everything about the Vagabond has been perfect from the romantic room with a fireplace, lots of room to relax... More

I should have known something was up when I checked in and the front desk agent said "Welcome sir, you have the cheapest and smallest room at the inn". When I had booked over the phone I was told it was small but perfect for two people, with a nice private patio. What it turned out to be was a... More
