Enjoyed a weekend in Galveston and a night stay at Lost Bayou Guesthouse for my birthday. We have stayed at a lot of B&B's and several B&B's in Galveston. To be honest, Lost Bayou is not the prettiest or well furnished B&B that we have been to but it sure has a lot of good qualities to make up for... More

Stayed here Jan 3rd for a night pre our Carnival cruise from Galveston. The owners Dave and Maria are fantastic. Very very friendly and happy to help. The house is beautiful and absolutely spotless. Breakfast was spot on, we enjoyed it immensely, especially the cakes Maria baked! A little gem of a place and if we ever return to Galveston... More

My wife and I stumbled on this place three years ago while looking for a B&B to try-out for a weekend in Galveston. This place is now our favorite place to stay (been there four times). The owners, David and Marie, are very courteous and attentive. Shoot, they even helped me carry in our bags. The rooms are all very... More

What a beautiful, old Victorian home. Great rooms with a Victorian twist. Wonderful breakfast and truly awesome innkeepers, David & Marie. This was our fourth stay here. We won't stay anywhere else in Galveston!

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
