Every year my wife and I stay at a B&B for our anniversary. This was the best one in 15 years. The room - gorgeous. The breakfast - amazing. The recommendations about what to do - spot on. The Coppersmith is spectacular.

This was the first visit to a B&B for my husband & I. Our experience at the Coppersmith Inn was so wonderful that we plan to stay at B&B's in every town we visit. Coppersmith Inn was spacious but quaint at the same time with historical details everywhere we looked. The bed in our Victorian room was super comfy and had the softest sheets we'd ever felt! I loved walking through the window to our private balcony listening to the sea breeze through the trees. This was also my first time in a claw foot tub - what a treat that was! I appreciated all the historical books about Galveston Island, reading them really gave me a greater appreciation of the architecture and people. Finally, the amazing breakfast! So scrumptious & filling! It was so nice having the hospitality room so near to our private room. It was full of goodies like blueberry scones, grapes, sweet pecans, teas, & cold beverages as well. As you can tell, we really enjoyed our stay at Coppersmith Inn so we enthusiastically recommend this historical gem to anyone visiting Galveston Island.
