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.

My wife and I spent three wonderful nights in a room on the second floor of this historic house. The hosts (Dave and Maria) were both welcoming and wonderful. Maria was nice enough to help me with some slight food allergies during breakfast, and both of them were always willing to help with information about what to do and where... More

I stayed at the Lost Bayou Guest House for a night as part of a motorcycle trip across the USA. It was the perfect place after a long days ride. I was made to feel very welcome, the room was cozy, clean and warm and in a quiet area. 'Family' breakfast with the other guests was a nice touch and... More

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. Dave dropped us off at the cruise port, very much appreciated. I will definitely return... More

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.

It's annoying to reserve a 5-star rated TripAdvisor listing only to find out upon arrival that it is obviously sub-par. Such an unpleasant surprise is not likely to happen at The Lost Bayou B&B. The proprietors, Dave and Maria, are exceptional hosts. They take pride in their establishment and work hard to convey that always-appealing home-away-from-home atmosphere. Our room, the... More
