“One fine Fourth of July at the Peaceful Pelican.”
Reviewed October 21, 2009

Need to get away from the concrete jungle of Houston? This is it. Comfy bed, classy private bath, bay views, and a warm hostess. A different gourmet breakfast each morning and fine wine or lemonade in the afternoon.
The atmosphere inspired me to compose a new Blues tune for my upcoming CD.

One night at this quiet b & b was not enough.....we added this stop to our anniversary trip at the last minute and are very glad we did. The house itself was very nice, as was the owner/innkeeper Edith. Our room was so tastefully decorated, with a seperate sitting room and our bathroom was spacious with both a clawfoot tub and a seperate shower.We really enjoyed the ground floor room - not many b & b's have ground floor availability - yet we did not have any problem with noise from the guests upstairs. The sheets were exquisite and towels were soft, excellent a/c and ceilingf fans. Best of all, the whole place was clean and well-kept. It was hard to leave the rocking chairs on the front porch - the view of the bay across the street was so relaxing!! The breeze made it enjoyable even on a hot Texas afternoon. Five o'clock brought lemonade/wine hour and time with Edith to learn the history of the house and the town. She also gave us a great tip for a wonderful fresh seafood dinner at "Soonbill's" - an enjoyable 30 minute drive away. Breakfast was yummy: a fresh fruit parfait, stuffed french toast, bacon and sliced bananas. Again, to the porch we went, enjoying morning coffee. Check -out time was noon, allowing for a leisurely morning. We didn't join in, but we saw many folks enjoying morning walks on the 1.5 mile seawall along the bay. As we told Edith, we will be back!!

My husband and I stayed at the Peaceful Pelican for 2 nights on a leisurely drive down the Texas coast. The home is beautiful and the view of the bay is magnificent! We were also able to bring our small, well-behaved dog with us. We stayed during the week, and there was one other person staying the first night, but we were alone the second night. We explored the other rooms and were amazed by the number of windows in all of them. The breeze from the bay was very restful. We enjoyed sitting on the porch drinking wine in the evening and coffee in the morning. The seawall walk is lovely and is one and a half miles long. It is directly across from the B&B. There is also a fishing pier and the B&B had fishing poles on the back porch. This was a great place to just relax. The town is small and has a few shops and restaurants, but the bay setting cannot be beat! We really enjoyed the Matagorda County Birding and Nature Center which is about 30 miles away - it is lovely!
