My wife and I have just returned from our 3rd visit to Lost Bayou Guest House; it's like staying with old friends. Always greeted with a smile and "Let me help you with that", Dave and Maria are top notch hosts always willing to make your stay pleasant. The balcony and private backyard get away provide a relaxing way to... More

Our stay at The Lost Bayou was a very enjoyable experience and we surely look forward to coming back to this wonderful three story home. We love going to top B & B's which are historical, beautiful, and have super hosts to create the perfect stay. They are conveniently located close to the harbor for our cruise ship as well... More

My wife and I spent a couple of nights at Lost Bayou over Labor Day weekend. We highly recommend staying with Maria and Dave, the Innkeepers. Our room was just right. We enjoyed the 2nd story balcony, and in the back of the house, the 3rd story tree top deck. You can see the beach hotels up there, and feel... More

Was a disappointment when compared to most we have stayed in. Pricey room on third floor with an unairconditioned bathroom in the hallway. This b&b is restored, however all the houses surrounding it are in a sad state of neglect. Did not feel safe after dark. Breakfast time is inflexible, and inferior to other breakfasts we have had. Owners are... More

Dave and Maria are excellent hosts. Their home is beautiful. The rooms are immaculate and well appointed. The common area/beverage room have everything you could want. The house is located 6 blocks from the beach and a 10 minute walk to The Strand. Breakfast was amazing with lots of great conversation with Dave and Maria. I would highly recommend a... More

My fiance found this place on the web as I gave her an assignment to find a unique place to stay in Galveston. That was a couple of years ago and one of the reasons that she selected Lost Bayou was that it had a room named the Elissa Room. Even though we were not able to book that particular... More

Almost to the end of a three week trip staying in hotels, motels and other locations we stopped in Galveston, Tx for a very relaxing night at the Lost Bayou Guest House. Upon arrival, Maria welcomed us and made us all feel right at home. Our 3 rooms were ready and very comfortable. Maria gave us brief run down of... More

A really lovely B&B, especially as a first stop after a flight from England! Such a comfortable bed that even wakefulness at night due to jet lag wasn't as frustrating as usual! It was especially good to have the well stocked hospitality room with ever present hot drinks and snacks. Breakfast was delicious fresh home cooked but elegant food with... More

Lovely guest house situated in Galverston. Myself and my boyfriend stayed there as part of a Texas road trip and it was just what we needed after staying in soulless motels! Run my Maria and Dave, the hospitality is warm and family like and the homemade breakfasts and hospitality room with free snacks and beverages were such a lovely touch.... More
