Come Friday Cottages on the Bay

3709 Bayshore Dr. , Bacliff, TX 77518 USA (Show map)


Just another day in Paradise. Located on beautiful Galveston Bay just 4 miles from Kemah. The Bay Room offers you a great place to relax. All of our guests have access to the various facilities and amenities of our property including: large common areas and decks for cooking out, or just a place to relax by the water in a lounge chair; fire pits and gas heaters for chilly nights; 265' lighted fishing pier with boat docking abilities; and use of the community Golf Carts to travel around and see the sites or ride to and from the restaurants and stores close by. We think you will find the graciousness of our Owners and Staff to be the favorite part of your stay with us. Our Event Coordinator is glad to arrange any type of outing or special night in just for you.

Every stay gets better and better. Don and Pat make you feel like family (the good kind). We will be back!

Awesome stay

This was our second stay there, and it will not be our last! Don and Pat make us feel like family and not just like customers. This is our drug free stress therapy. I recommend it to anyone who wants a beautiful and inexpensive getaway. Act quickly, or we will book any vacancy!

Wonderful Experience Wonderful Place

Everything about our stay at Come Friday was amazing. The staff are so wonderful and the location is perfect for a beach retreat. The sunrises and sunsets will take your breath away, and the breakfasts each morning are top notch as well. We could not be happier with our experience.

An awesome getaway!

My wife and I have been married for 18 years and this getaway was intended to be the honeymoon we never had. Our two night stay there was well worth the way!

great weekend

We lived staying in the captains quarters. The owners are great. Breakfast is amazing. I definitely want to stay in the bay room next time.

A room with a view

5 on November 14, 2015

We stayed in the Bay room and cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay. Everything about the room was outstanding- bay view right from the bed, unique wood paneled bathroom, tons of special touches like fresh flowers, and a wonderful breakfast served in your room on a rolling cart with a friendly smile from the gracious hostess. The bed itself is probably the most comfortable I've ever slept in. Perfect for a romantic getaway! Go!

Just what you're looking for

Pat and Don have done an amazing job of creating this little slice of heaven. We arrived at the tail end of Hurricane Patricia and they had everything ready and waiting for us. We slept so well, enjoying the sound of the waves lulling us to sleep (we stayed in the Bay Room) only to wake up to a delicious breakfast. We found ourselves wishing that we had booked the room for the full week we were in the area, unfortunately for us Pat keeps these rooms booked. The weather was cloudy while we were there except for the last morning we visited, but it didn't matter. We truly enjoyed our stay and the wonderful owners we had the pleasure of staying with. Don't ponder booking this B&B, it is the place for you! The Soukup's

Best get away anywhere, ever!!!!!!

This is our favorite place to get away and relax. We love bringing our friends and everyone always hates to leave.

Amazing place with owners who care

We stayed here two nights and came in late. There was a sign by the road so you could find the place easily. All of the parking spots are labeled so we knew exactly where to park for our room. Everything outside was beautiful and we found our room easily, The Dingy. The decor was beautiful and the room was spotless. No dust in the corners or other random places everyone always forgets to clean. The bed- amazing! Seriously, like sleeping on clouds. I don't think I have ever slept better away from home. The bathroom had everything we needed. She even had a blue towel for me to use for my make up so I didn't worry about staining her white ones. Great idea! The next morning Pat brought us breakfast- a feast! Cereal, fresh fruit, milk, OJ, WARM homemade pastries, etc. She even took the time to give us chocolate covered strawberries and a banana decorated as a dolphin! I loved it so much I took it home for my daughter to see! Pat thinks of everything, our second morning she even filled up the water in the Keurig provided for us! They have a LOVELY pier right outside the cottages. We were able sit on the comfy chairs or lay in the hammock and listen to the water hit the rocks. They also have everything you need to fish. The next night Don saw us leaving with an ice chest, he walked over and told us to come fill that sucker up with ice so we didn't have to buy any!!! Walked us to his garage and let us get as much ice as needed, again so thoughtful! The place has a great location, we were able to go to Kemah if we wanted or San Leon, both which were a 10 min or less drive away. There are cute places to eat almost within walking distance of their house as well. Pat and Don were great. You can tell they love what they do and take pride in making sure even the smallest detail is right. We like to travel and I can honestly say this is one of the best B&B's I have stayed in yet. We WILL be back here again and will be telling our friends about this wonderful spot!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you Kelly for your kind review. We do love it and try our very best to make it comfortable and fun for everyone. We know guests have lots of choices! And thanks for loving The Dingy. It is small but we have worked hard to make sure it has anything that might be needed for a lovely stay. Hope to see you again soon.

A Piece of Paradise

This was one of our best trips ever! We had a very relaxing vacation and the owners, Pat & Don have thought of every detail to make their guests stay wonderful. We can't wait to come back, but this time, we'll stay longer! Great location, beautiful views & friendly hospitality!
