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

My wife and I just returned from a long weekend in Galveston, where we stayed with Dave and Maria (almost like we were visiting old friends) in the Elissa room. I can't give the Lost Bayou a perfect score, because I had a couple of small quibbles: (1) the tiny room air conditioner had a hard time keeping up with... More

We stayed in many B&Bs all over America and found the Lost Bayou the most memorable. This is due to the wonderful hospitality of Dave and Maria. They were helpful, warm and generous without being intrusive. They are an interesting couple who have done many things before running this B&B so conversation is always enjoyable during breakfast. The breakfasts cooked... More

Me and my husband have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Lost Bayou Guesthouse in Galveston.
