My friend and I were looking for a place to explore Matagorda Bay with our two small dogs. I found the Peaceful Pelican in an online search and it sounded too good to be true. Dogs welcome. Gourmet breakfast included. Big front verandah right across from the bay. We showed up and guess what??!! Its all true! We stayed in...

We only stayed one night but I wish we could have stayed the whole weekend. Paula is a great hostess and we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast. We stayed in the Magnolia Room that views of the bay. I loved sitting outside and just relaxing! Already making plans to go back.

When I told a friend I was going to Palacios, they said "sheesh, what's in Palacios?" "Nothing" was my response, and that's the reason I wanted to go there. I don't mean "nothing" in a bad way. It's a beautiful little town, where the main industry seems to be fishing and shrimping. It sits right on the bay. The Peaceful...

This is a great place to stay if you want a quiet, relaxing getaway. It was clean, quiet, comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. The keeper is hospitable and knowledgeable, but not on site all the time. The water front view from the house is lovely.

My husband and I stayed at the Peaceful Pelican during my birthday weekend and enjoyed our stay in the first floor suite. The suite includes a private entrance, a sitting room, and a small refrigerator. The bathroom had both a clawfoot tub and shower. The suite is at the back of the B & B and extremely private. Although the...

We were looking for a quiet B&B near the water and (fortunately) all of Galveston was booked up because of a motorcycle rally (whew, close call, glad we missed that). Stumbled on Peaceful Pelican and couldn't have been happier with results. Very nice and quiet, vary comfortable rooms with comfortable, firm bed, and absolutely great breakfasts. Chef Ruth was doing...

Peaceful and comfortable indeed. It had an eccentric yet inviting style. My parents and I wanted a unique spot near the ocean, and we had exactly what we hoped for. Paula made us feel right at home, and Ruth was an exceptional chef. The room was (third-floor suite) was quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was utterly delicious. I definitely recommend...

An eclectically tastefully appointed B&B that is comfortable and well-run, as well as pet friendly; the latter is unusual among older, antique-filled bed and breakfasts. The food is all fresh and well-prepared. This is a very nice place for quiet time, with the bayside walk running for miles just across the street and Pelicans and other coastal birds on constant...

Better than any hotel! Ruth was so sweet and made a delicious breakfast! We stayed in the Third Floor suite and it was breathtaking. The room was beautiful with a comfy king size sleep number. My husband and I truly did not want to leave. Having the bayview and it just a walk across the street was the cherry on...

Wife and I stayed here for two nights. We really enjoyed our time here. I really enjoyed that this was a historic building and is very well kept. It is located walking distance to a few lighted fishing piers and a restaurant. The people we met while staying here were friendly. It is a very quiet house with lots of...
