My husband and I had a wonderful, romantic stay at this lovely B&B. The name is very fitting - very peaceful. The room was very inviting and the view from our room was beautiful. We really enjoyed the 4 course dinner Chef Ruth prepared on Saturday night which included a shrimp appetizer, salad, pecan crusted fish fillet and ended with... More

The owner was extremely friendly greeting us upon arrival and after showing us to our ground floor suite gave us a complete description of area and local attractions. The historic three story house is furnished with antiques and is quite charming. Paula, the owner treats you as family friend. The breakfast was excellent. There is a park and lighted pier... More

This is a lovely place to stay in a very quiet town by the sea. We extended our stay due to heavy rain causing flooding towards Corpus Christi. What better place to sit out the storm. Paula was very welcoming and served top notch breakfasts, and we got to meet interesting fellow guests. The town itself is very quiet. I'd... More

This was a great couples getaway in a remote area. The new owner is making some outside updates to this historical three story building. It was comfortable and so unique! We appreciated the beautiful view from our third story room! You would have to be in good physical shape to climb the steep last leg of the stairs, so if... More

We arrived in town to find that our reservations were not what we expected. Decided to look for the place we saw on the Internet called the Pelican. Driving around and stopped to ask if they knew and the lady said its here. BEST choice we made on this trip. The house is old and across the street on the... More

The Peaceful Pelican is located on the Tres Palacios Bay in the quaint, sleepy town of Palacios, Texas. If you are a history buff…you will not be disappointed, this area is filled with long ago adventures of explorers and pirates, category 5 hurricanes and big fish stories; if you are looking for a quiet time…you will not be disappointed…if you...

I was reading Texas Highways, June 2015 issue and looking at all the places they were visiting along the gulf coast and one caught my eye. Palacious, SE of Victoria on the bay. It was on my run from Bay City to Rockport in the old days when I was selling my wares but had never stayed there as there... More

While on a roadtrip around Texas, we wanted a stop in between Galveston and Corpus Christi, and we chose this B&B and I am so glad we did. The owner was friendly and welcoming, the room was perfect, the views amazing, and the breakfast was delicious! What more can you ask! From friendly conversation, tasteful decor, and a great location,... More

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
