About

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.

4 paw rating from our pups

4.0 on March 17, 2015

We stayed 2 nts in Captains Quarters and our traveling companions stayed in the Bayfront Cottage. We were in town to participate in the Seabrook Lucky Trails Marathon. An extremely convenient location for packet pick up and the race start! Race started at 7:15 and we left the cottage just before 6:30 a.m.! There is no patio area per say on the Captains Quarters. However, there is seating on the dock, a gazebo and additional patio furniture along the water. We appreciated each couple having their separate rooms and at the same time several community areas where we could easily socialize. We were traveling with our dogs and they enjoyed the property as much as we did. We brought their camping leashes and they had plenty of area to wander around while we enjoyed time socializing outdoors with our traveling companions. Our room had a small microwave and stove and refrigerator. While we did not eat any meals in it would have easily accommodated doing so. The morning breakfast delivered to our room was perfect. The hosts were even kind enough to bring our Sun bkst to us Sat nt since Sun morning we had to leave at 6:30 a.m. for our race in Seabrook. Chuckie and Sanders, our pups, would give Come Friday Cottages a 4 Paw rating!


Another Peaceful, Comforting Experience

Thank you for another excellent stay! I brought a friend along this time to share the beauty. We really enjoyed strolling along the dock overlooking the calm waters with the slight warm breeze blowing through our hair. The full moon was magnificent over the ocean, and the room we stayed in offered beautiful views of the ocean and the palm trees swaying in the wind - all visible from the bedroom window. The breakfast always brings with it a few little neat surprises here and there, and we always know it will be delicious! I look forward to my next stay!


Beyond my expectations

I can think of a million words to describe Come Friday Cottages. I work in the hospitality industry and it is hard to WOW me. Come Friday Cottage did just that. The Bay room, which is right off the Bay was relaxing, clean and beautiful. Don and Pat were super nice and welcomed us even when we were early for check in. The breakfast was out of this world, This is a must stay and return spot!!!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much or your review. It is definitely a compliment coming from someone in the hospitality industry. Hope to see you again soon! Pat


Bay Room is just as advertised!

My wife and I spent 3 wonderfully relaxing days and nights at Come Friday Cottages on the Bay. The Bay Room was perfect and the view of the bay was therapeutic. Pat and Don were the perfect hosts. Their breakfasts were fantastic, home-baked breakfast breads, muffins, and kolaches, accompanied by a variety of fresh fruits, cereal, and juice. Come Friday Cottages exceeded our expectations and we have already recommended it to several of our friends. We will be back. Herb and Stephanie Coley


The Perfect Stay

5 on May 05, 2014

My wife & i had the privilage to stay at Come Friday for our 13th yr. Anniversary the minute we arrived Pat welcomed us as if we were family. She showed us the property and all it had to offer for outdoor needs from several places to bbq, fishing, sitting by the water around a fireplace, boat riding, swimming or hot tub while music playing to put you in a outdoor/relaxing mode. Then Pat proceeded to show us to our room (Captains Quarters) and suprised us with a bottle of champage!! Our room was exactly what we needed for our weekend stay. The Captains Quarter was cozy, very clean and smelled very nice that had a mini bar stocked with snacks, drinks, mini wines and beer. Last but not least the Breakfast served at 9 a.m that was very delicous but not too filling so that you can take advantage of all the great restaurants Kemah has to offer come lunch time. So if your looking for a personal, at home, family visiting from out of town kinda stay then Pat & Don at Come Friday Cottages is the place to be!! #5star


Perfection at it's best!!!!

Was wanting a place to go with my lovely girlfriend to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. The pictures do not do it justice. I was blown away and left speechless by the Captains Quarters. The mini bar and full kitchen was a great surprise. Pat was nice and let us use the golf cart to go grab a bite down rode abs her brother was so helpful when the golf cart ran out off juice. Then that night my car ran out of juice and here comes Pat and her husband to the rescue. I guess what I'm trying to say is the place is electrifying. Sat on the pier fir a couple of hours talking to my gf and couldn't ask for a better night. The breakfast is amazing and they even delivered it while we were sleeping at our request. It seemed like no request was two big from the checkin time to any crazy request. They make you feel like family and we are definitively going back. Thank you Come Friday Cottages on the Bay you made my weekend amazing.


Relax by the bay

4.6 on March 19, 2014

My husband and I enjoyed a couple of days at Come Friday last week in the Dinghy Room which was small but cozy and certainly space enough for the two of us. The fresh fruit at breakfast was wonderful! Unfortunately there were some plumbing issues but Pat and Don made every effort to accommodate their guests. Very relaxing stay and convenient to some great restaurants. We tried Topwater, Bubba's and Signature Classic Cafe and all were tasty. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again! Thanks for a much needed relaxing stay by the bay!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us. We so apologize for the plumbing schedule. We were on the list for some work that was needed to improve our property and they managed to work us in during your brief stay. It is finished now and working great!! Please come and see us again! Our priority is to make our guests happy and comfortable.


Great Getaway Place

4.6 on October 20, 2013

Come Friday Cottages by the Bay was a wonderful place to stay. The room was really nice and clean. Great details were taken to make it welcoming. The variety of coffees was a really nice bonus. The breakfast was truly exceptional. I am going to get a gift certificate for my brother and his wife to go there.


Family Getaway

5 on August 19, 2013

My Husband and I and our two young daughters have stayed at Come Friday many times since they opened. We have been in every room and love them all. Every room is so clean and fresh and accommodating. This time we were in the Bay Room suite again but we love the other rooms, too. Come Friday is a wonderful place to just run away and relax. We really utilized the pool and spa and deck areas this time. Don and Pat go out of their way to make sure everyone is comfortable and has everything they could possibly need. My girls had the best time too, just running and playing and swimming all day. This is our favorite getaway spot and we will be back again soon. I highly recommend this hidden gem of coziness to all. Being children and pet friendly is a huge plus for us. Thanks for sharing your little paradise with others. May God continue to Bless You!
