The Vagabond's House, a pet friendly Carmel Boutique Inn, is a wonderful place to stay as you travel with your pet to Carmel. Carmel is a pet friendly town where dogs can run free on Carmel Beach, and walk on leash throughout the town. Doggie pick up bags and a spot to wash off your pet after a romp at the beach are located in the Courtyard.

When you make your reservation please notify us that your pet(s) will be joining you. Please note: There is a $30 pet fee per night for one pet, a $50 fee for 2 pets, or a $70 charge for three pets per night.

A recent Yappy visitor was heard to say: "I travel to Carmel because I can run leash free on the beach and walk all over town on leash.  I stay at dog friendly Carmel Boutique Inns because they pamper me with things like complimentary after-the-beach wash stations and Doggie pick up bags."


  1. A Puppy in motion stays in motion. Please keep these critters on lead.
  2. A puppy at rest, stays at rest—as long as they are on a CBI complimentary PET BLANKET!
  3. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. So please, be aware of your dog’s behavior—in public & private areas. 
  4. Above all, Newton asks that a fellow dog companion never be left in a room unattended—under any circumstances. CBI has a list of PET SITTERS at the Front Desk, for your convenience.
