The room is so nice! The breakfast was delicious and the B&B provides us a parking place while we are on the cruise ship! Awesome location for someone who likes to be able to walk into town. Ellen is a great hostess!

Went to Galveston with my wife to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary. B&B owners helped us select restaurant for that evening, which provided great food and service. Each day they visited with us at breakfast, sharing some of the island history as well as the history of the house. Saturday they made reservations for my wife and I at a great Steakhouse we enjoyed so much. This weekend was the most relaxing time I have had in years.

Just a brief one night stop over, a beautiful house displaying much attention to period detail Our host was very welcoming and gave a good suggestion for eating out that night. A very comfortable bed and a lovely breakfast - but slightly offputting to have one of the dogs whining at the side of the table throughout breakfast waiting to have her share of the sausage !

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at the Coppersmith! The Carriage House was wonderful. Everything about it made our stay perfect. The main house is a beautiful Victorian home with amazing windows. Breakfast was delicious each morning. Ellen and Blair shared information about the island and gave great suggestions for activities and tours to take. We plan to return! We recommend the Coppersmith to anyone who is looking for a relaxing getaway in Galveston! - Steven and Amanda Griggs

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary with a 4 day 3 night getaway to this delightful B & B. We were not disappointed! The inn was charming, the food was outstanding and the innkeepers were delightful and full of local information. We especially enjoyed the private balcony in the evenings--very peaceful and quiet. We will highly recommend this place to our friends and we intend to return!

My husband and I had a great weekend at Coppersmith Inn. Ellen met us at the door when we checked in and we immediately felt at home. Our room was beautiful and everything that we would expect in a Victorian Mansion. Breakfast was amazing. We normally would expect something like muffins and coffee, but not here! Ellen provided the most wonderful full course breakfast! We were so full that we skipped lunch and just had dinner. We would definitely stay again. T
