We stayed the newly renovated room #9 on 11/1/13. The room is beautiful but we were awakened after midnight by the sound of fluttering wings which turned out to be termites swarming. Management did not respond to our call to the emergency number posted on the door of the inn so we had to move to another hotel at 1:00 am. Management finally responded on my cell and said "It's nature." "It's not our fault, it's nature!" I guess they are ignoring the fact that the newly renovated rooms contain large amounts of reclaimed wood. Still working on getting charges to my credit card removed.

Room Tip: Termite infestation in room #9

After reading the reviews on Trip advisor I wondered if it would live up to expectations...I needn't have worried, it is every bit as wonderful as everyone says. I received a nice bottle of champagne too and a card for my birthday :) We enjoyed the breakfast in our room and missed this intimate and cosy touch at our next hotel. Thank you for a lovely stay, we shall be back!

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!

Really nothing to complain about this place. Everything is done well and as everybody says the reality matches the photos. It is very pet friendly and we did miss our dog who was at home on the other side of the Atlantic when we met all the other dogs at the wine reception in the afternoon. Not too sure about the breakfast being delivered form your order which you do when you arrive as I changed my mind but as they don't have any space for anything else that's ok. Lovely fire in our room. Recommended!

This was our second stay at the Vagabond's House Inn. We were there two years ago, and the
room was very nice and comfortable.The room we stayed in this time however,(#9), was amazing.
It had been totally remodeled with a Carrera Marble shower and heated bathroom floors.
It had double vanities with all the amenities you would expect at a five star hotel.
The bed was great and the fireplace was an added bonus. We also thought the breakfast
delivered to the room each morning (you fill out your preferences the night before) was
wonderful. Can't say enough nice things about this place. Great staff and location. The pictures
don't do it justice!

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with one of the remodeled rooms, but honestly, they are all extremely nice!
