Peggy and Rik are my new best friends! Just kidding, but they are just adorable! They know how to run a mean B & B...I would recommend this place to anyone, there is nothing not to like and adore. Very clean, wonderful meal, charming people, charming place. 'Nough said.

From the time we steped out of the car we felt welcome in this beautiful home. The breakfasts were great. We even had special decorations and food for St. Patricks day. The conversation was great too. Felt like we were staying with relatives. I was glad they had a bedroom on the main floor. We could see the intercostal waterway... More

What a wonderful stay we experienced at the Stanley-Fisher House! We were greeted by Peggy! What a delightful personality! She gave us a tour of their home and it is very obvious how passionate she and her husband Rik are about preserving the history of their home! They both made us feel like we were staying in their home and... More

My husband and I spent the weekend at The Stanley-Fisher House in February 2014. It was the most restful weekend we have ever experienced. The Stanleys are very hospitable couple and they made out stay very comfortable. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious . We have already made reservations for another weekend in the near future.

Peggy and Rik were wonderful hosts at the Historic Stanley-Fisher House. We were greeted by Peggy and given a very informative tour of the house to our room. We stayed in the Blue room (room 2) and were dazzled by the charm and comfort of the room. Peggy reassured us that we were free to make ourselves at home and... More

Another weekend at the Stanley Fisher Bed & Breakfast, this place is amazing and I feel like royalty the way I am pampered. I can't say enough about the beautiful décor and ambiance at this historical place. Owners Ric & Peggy Stanley are the most gracious of host and always go out of their way to make you feel like...

I first read the reviews of the Stanley-Fisher house here on TripAdvisor and was compelled to book a night during my recent trip to Matagorda. This home is gloriously historic, built in 1832, and such care and detail is taken to preserve its history. I traveled with a girlfriend, and when we walked in, we were graciously greeted by Peggy...

The charms of the Stanley-Fisher house are eclipsed only by the hospitality of Peggy and Rick Stanley, the most gracious hosts we have ever encountered in our years of travels (and occasional travails) in the B&B community. My husband and I have treasured the Matagorda location for years but were often deterred by the limitations of finding the precise convergence... More

I book here quite often and love it, the owners are so friendly and I feel so welcome. The furnishing are beautiful as is the history of the house. Breakfast is always top notch with all the extras such as beautiful dishes and the local paper set out on a lovely table with a lace table cloth. I highly recommend... More

We had a very pleasant stay this summer at this nice B&B in the quiet beach town of Matagorda. Although the B&B is not on the island/beach, it's only aboutr 5 minutes over the bridge to the beach. We have family in the area so it's nice to have a place to stay when there's not enough room for everyone.... More
