Best Stay On The Bay

5 on December 08, 2014

I spent the past weekend at the Peaceful Pelican and it is easily the best stay on the bay. I had the Magnolia suite with a perfect view of the bay and the birds. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were a perfect start to the day and the owner worked around my desire to be up before sunrise, out photographing the local shrimp boats and birdlife and then come back for a nice breakfast. The first night I arrived, I joined a gourmet dinner occasionally held at the B&B and with four food and three wine courses it was both a super experience and very reasonable in price. I would definitely go again and recommend to friends.


Nice Quiet Place with a Great Host

5 on October 14, 2014

This is my second time to this place. It was sold during the summer. First, the new host is great, talkative, and helpful. She is new to the area but a fast learner. She is a great cook for breakfast, trying different things. I can't wait to come back to the place again and see what she has done and learn. The place is unchanged from the first time. We like the third floor. It is very roomy and comfortable. Watching the moon and the sunrises over the water is so nice and calming. This time, we watched a cool front coming racing across the bay. Oh, there is no worry about parking. Palacios is a very small quiet town for relaxing. There is no rat race and rush hour around the town.

Great place and view. Very comfortable sleep number bed in our room on the third floor. Paula is an attentive host who fixes a mean breakfast. She has an interesting background and stories you should ask her to share.


Wonderful Place to Stay

My Husband and I just returned from a stay at the Peaceful Pelican. It was an absolutely wonderful and relaxing experience. The Inn Keeper, Paul,a was so wonderful and accommodating.


Lovely Place to Stay

My family spent Spring Break at the Peaceful Pelican, and we had a wonderful stay. The house is beautiful and provides a fantastic view of the bay which can be enjoyed from the guest rooms or the spacious front porch. Each morning Edith prepared an elegant breakfast complete with fresh fruit. My family visited the Gulf Coast because it offers great birding opportunities, and Edith was very helpful in directing us to great viewing locations. And because Palacios is centrally located between Galveston and Corpus Christie, there are things to see and do to meet anyone's interest.


Wonderful Place to Stay

4.8 on January 26, 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at the Peaceful Pelican. The old Victorian house is charming and the location is just perfect - right on the bay with great views. We enjoyed walking along the bayfront and see the various waterbirds, especially pelicans and herons, up close and personal. Perfect place if you want a quiet and, well, "peaceful" getaway experience.


Quiet Elegance

Superb, distinguished, unassuming! Would recommend highly. We are coming back!


The Place to go......unless you want shopping

5 on July 03, 2012

Outstanding in every aspect. Stayed 4 nights with a full house and everything was wonderful. Breakfast was outstanding, service was outstanding, and the treatment was outstanding.....can't put it any other way. Edith was very attentive and if you asked for something she was quick to help. Went fishing and just "hung out" with the family. Not much else to do, but that's what I was looking for. Thanks again for everything and Cpt Hank you recommend as a fishing guide was amazing.


A DELIGHTFUL WEEKEND

A Texas Coastal Retreat!

4.4 on March 23, 2012

We stayed there for two nights during our mild Texas winter. Our room was comfortable and the bathroom was nicely renovated; loved the clawfoot tub. Staying with us was a couple from Houston and couple from England. Breakfast food was good and so was the conversation. There is a Happy Hour in the evening in the sun room.We enjoyed walks along the bay inlet which was right across the street. Our room was the Sunrise Room and one morning we were treated to a sublimely colored sunrise. This B&B is convenient to birding cruises, which our hostess, Edith Gower, arranged the reservations, and the Texas coast. Enjoy!
