This was our first bed and breakfast and we were delighted with our time at the Lost Bayou Guest house. The room was charming and clean. I loved the claw bathtub! The food was delicious! Dave and Maria made us feel at home and special! We will be back!

When my husband and I visited Galveston for our anniversary this year, we wanted to stay in a historic home. The guesthouse was really secure with a modern locking system on all doors. The house itself is very lovely, comfortable, and decorated with a sensitivity to its historic past. We walked through the preserved neighborhood to the new Bryan Southwestern... More

Very clean...well maintained bed and breakfast. Dave and Maria make you feel comfortable and at home. Maria's breakfast was top notch. We don't usually stay in b&b's but Dave and Maria might change our minds.

Stayed here for 1 night pre cruise after reading reviews on tripadvisor. Great choice. Beautiful building with lovely hosts. Breakfast is served at 9am and everyone sits together at a family style table, this gave us the chance to meet some other guests, all delightful.

Very nice B&B in a beautiful historic building. Our room (Elissa), although not very large, was lovely decorated. Bed (queen) was comfortable. The owners are very welcoming and take good care of their guests. The B&B is close to the beach and close to the Strand. Breakfast, family style, is delicious. Would stay here again.
