“Totally loved Vagabond's House Inn!”
Reviewed March 20, 2011

Just returned from a week in California, and the highlight of our trip was the couple days we spent at the lovely Vagabond Inn in Carmel. Thomas was especially helpful and accommodating to ensure our stay was top-notch. He had great suggestions for restaurants, etc. and even made our dinner reservations for us. The rooms were lovely and very clean. We enjoyed our breakfast on the patio and the croissants were heavenly. Carmel is a great "walking town" and so "dog-friendly." We enjoyed walking up and down the beach each morning and seeing all the people with their dogs. Can't wait to return!

The guy basically became my travel agent, not just for Carmel, but also for the rest of our trip down and up Pacific Coast Highway. Honest suggestions, recommendations, and even a warning of the road falling out that helped us rearrange our trip in advance of us embarking on our PCH tour... which would have been quite a surprise.

Inn Keeper, Thomas, and staff were amazing: always personable and going the extra mile. A beautiful Inn in every way. I can't wait to return.

We loved this Inn. Rooms are large and very comfortable. Our room had a kitchen which was very nice as we stayed several days. Everything is within easy walking distance. VERY clean and cozy. Highly recommend.

Thomas and his colleagues welcomed us with open arms--a very professional yet friendly crew, they made us feel very special--attention to detail was given at every turn. Our long days were rejuvinated by our comfy and peaceful evenings tucked beneath the most comfortable comforters and pillows! I can't say enough about the people and the place, and the location is optimum for Carmel nightlife, shopping, and the beach. Thank you all, can't wait to visit again!

Just got back from three days at Vagabond House. We've stayed here before, sometimes with family, this time with our dog, Ollie (Golden Retriever). The inn is walking distance from everything in Carmel, rooms are large (ours had a fireplace and soaking tub). Breakfast is a real treat, delivered daily. Anyone traveling with a well behaved pet will love it.

We stayed here for our honeymoon, and my wife wanted to come back on this our 16th anniversary. Everything was perfect from the room, to the staff, to breakfast in bed each day, to the garden grounds with the water falls that soothed you day and night. What really made it extra special each day though was all the things that those in housekeeping did from breakfast in bed to keeping the room fresh. Don't miss this place if you're staying in Carmel, or close by.
