My husband and I just returned form a weekend stay at The Peaceful Pelican. The Inn Keeper, Paula, was most gracious and attentive. The views from the front porch were absolutely amazing. The house itself has such wonderful charm and is very quiet even with a full house! We will definitely be making a return trip.

This is a wonderful old home, located on the east bay side of Matagorda Bay. Great porches for sitting out in the evening. The price is pretty steep for the room we had. It was called the First Floor Suite. Had a good king-sized bed in the bedroom; but the rollaway bed in the "sitting" room was completely inadequate for... More

We stayed here with Edith one night on our way to South Padre Island. She is selling the business but the B&B is nonetheless up to par and you wouldn't know it if the signs out front was taken up. She was courteous, friendly and took some time to tell us a short bio and history of herself and the... More

For the first two nights we were the only people on the property. The breakfast was good and prepared by a wonderful host, Lindsay. The room had the best of views, the Bay and the street was quiet that runs in front of the property. This is a BB so no TV, however the internet was good and there is... More

The Peaceful Pelican and the little town of Palacios, Texas is the perfect place to unwind away from the hustle and bustle of the city and work life. This B&B is quaint and well put together. The views of the bay are gorgeous from the front porch or the bedroom windows. Edith is a great owner. Her breakfast and evening... More

An authentic turn-of-the-last century beach front B&B on the historic register that has been tastefully restored and updated. Sleep-number beds, air conditioning, and modern plumbing coexist with original floors and historical fixtures. The breakfast was superb -- healthful and delicious.

Had a very peaceful memorial day weekend at the Peaceful Pelican B&B. The property faces the Tres Palacios Bay and it is very restful to rock on the front porch or walk along the water front. Breakfast each morning was plentiful and appealing. Hostess tipped us off to the town's historical society chicken dinner and side walk sale within walking... More

The floors may be a bit creaky and door frames a bit crooked in the old house, but it doesn't matter in the least. Edith, your hostess at The Peaceful Pelican, makes your stay just what it should be - a pleasant respite away from the cares of the world. Her breakfasts are wonderful and the conversations at the dining... More
