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

Several of my classmates stayed at the Pelican while in Palacios for our high school class reunion. We loved it here. Plenty of room for us to spread out and visit. I stayed in the garden room, it was very clean and comfy. Breakfast was delicious and the views are amazing. Thank you for a great weekend!

On our 7th honeymoon celebration, my wife and I totally dug the house, its furnishings, location, ambiance, and history. The breakfast was surpassed only by our congenial hostess’s inspiring tales and wealth of area heritage info.

My girlfriends and I stay at this b&b every year. It is a great relaxing trip. We are in 7th grade and pay our own fee. The rooms are priced wonderfully! Some of the luxuries at the site: hidden hammock cove, benches by the water, wonderful breakfast, and awesome local restraunts! I would recommend Tran's, PMR, and Outrigger for dinner.... More
