This lovely hidden gem is the best B&B we have ever stayed. The 1910 beautiful seaside home is full of elegance and old world charm. It is so peaceful it will remove the stress of everyday life without a doubt. The food was beyond excellent and the conversation was very enjoyable. Margaret the innkeeper is a jewel. Décor is excellent.... More

We came to Palacios and the Peaceful Pelican on the recommendation of a friend. We were greeted by Margaret (friend of the owner who was away at the time) in a very kind and warm way. She gave us a tour of the house and we immediately felt like we were family. We stayed in the third floor suite, which... More

We came to Palacios for business and to celebrate our anniversary. We found our room delightful, great view of the bay, the food fantastic, and a perfect getaway from the city. Paula is a creative and tremendous cook! Would recommend this jewel to anyone!

I wish we were here longer than 2 nights. The view of the bay is fantastic. Great location for birdwatching. It even has a widows-walk that you are allowed to use. Great common rooms on the first floor (the porches are my favorite--one outside, one enclosed). Paula is fantastic!

My husband and I spent two nights here and absolutely loved it! Gorgeous house and views, our hostess Paula was fantastic and the bay was stunning. Delicious breakfasts and so relaxing. Our room was very comfortable with a private bath and claw foot tub. We would love to return!!

We live near Houston and wanted to find a new place to get away and visit that isn't full of tourist. My husband found the town, but I keep telling him I found the best part. The Peaceful Pelican! We booked the room and within a day or so the owner called to see if there were any food allergies,... More

This place is so beautiful and serene. The view from the front porch of the bay to the east is incredible. So is the breakfast, and the room on the second floor with the same view, a large shower plus claw foot tub, and sleep number bed. The houses are not close to each other and do not have fences....

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
