A nice relaxing Kemah retreat. After previously staying at hotels this stay increased our enthusiasm about Kemah greatly! Even in the 95+ degree weather, it was a pleasure just sitting on the front porch listening to the fountains and enjoying the serenity while yet being so close / walking distance to the boardwalk, bars, resturaunts, and a coffee shop.

If you have allergies don't stay here. The grounds are landscaped and well groomed however when you step inside the mold/mildew smell will hit you immediately. The setup is great. We were gladly accommodated with a last minuet with a same day reservation. However when we arrived about ten o'clock at night after a four hour drive we immediately had... More

This was the second stay for my husband and I. This year we brought some friends from our Harley Owner's Group. The stay this time was just as wonderful as last. Our friends were also very pleased and loved the winery tour. I'm sure we will return.

The cottage we stayed in was unique, quaint and private (not a typical b&b by any means (much better). Barbara was very friendly and made our experience very welcoming. We had convenient trips to Kemah and next day to Nasa. Both worked out perfectly. I would definitely return next time I am in the area.

We have stayed here twice over the last year and have loved it each time. This is where we go to hide when we just need a timeout from everything to recharge.
