My wife and I enjoyed our one night stay at the Peaceful Pelican in Palacios recently (July, 2016). It is a nicely furnished old home on the quiet, east side of the Palacios bay, right across the street from the water. The wife liked the antiques and furnishings. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very nice. Breakfast... More

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

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...

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.
