Vagabond's House is heavenly and the perfect landing spot for a short weekend trip or a long retreat. The staff is helpful, welcoming, and deeply knowledgeable. The rooms have great character and all the right fixings (the bathtubs! the bed!) -- I haven't felt so relaxed in years. And the location can't be beat. Afternoon wine and morning breakfasts in...

Highly recommend! If you want charm (reminded us of an English cottage), high standard of furnishings, exceptionally clean and a great location then book it! Breakfast is delivered to your room and the croissants are a must. Complimentary cheese and wine each evening is a very nice touch and it was fun to sit around the fire pit and meet... More

I recently traveled to Vagabond's House Inn with my 3 daughters. We couldn't of been more pleased. We were greeted with wine and snacks by Randal the innkeeper. He was knowledgable, helpful and friendly. It just got better from there. Breakfast was served in our rooms the next morning. Excellent coffee, cereal, bagels, fruit, yogurt and a perfectly cooked soft... More

My husband, dog and I had a wonderful time at this very comfortable B&B! A very generous continental breakfast served in the room and a nice wine and cheese happy hour around the fire pit was icing on the cake. A few blocks from the main street made it quiet but great restaurants were only a few minutes walk away.

We had a very nice stay in October in one of the premier king suites. While the property is old, it is charming and quaint and the rooms have been renovated. The bathroom in the king suite is as good as you'll find anywhere, with heated floors as one of the nice perks. There is a wine and cheese time... More

Absolutely loved this place. So quaint and beautifully fitted out. Clearly a lot of thought and effort has gone into the furniture and fittings here. Walked into the courtyard which is surrounded by lovely flowers and has a fire pit. We were greeted by Quinn who welcomed us, checked us in and showed us to our room. We stayed in... More

Very charming B&B in a nice location. The property was nicely kept with beautiful plants and flowers. Since we booked late the only room available was with a kitchen, so we paid a lot more. We were located in the little courtyard which had both good and bad aspects. Just steps from our room we had the fire pit, picnic... More

Im writing this while in my room. Its Midnight and there are very very noisy guests just outside my room, they have been making lots of noise for the last 45-60 mins. Amusing as the hotel gets you to sign you will respect the fact its a quiet place after 9pm. At other times there is the very loud noise... More

This charming Inn ticked many boxes: Quiet. Convenient. Cosy. Comfortable. Carmel has a cute arty village feel and Vagabond's fits perfectly with its antique touches. Faults are hard to find. The shower head could have done with a refresh, if I were being picky. But the biggest fault was our own: not booking a room with a bath! Now that... More

We stayed here as part of our family trip to California. We had two rooms, 2 and 5a. Both were very good, 2 was bigger and had a fire. The inn made a real change for us on the trip being a small place but it was great. They were also extremely helpful when my daughter left her laptop behind... More
