Gracious hospitality

4.6 on June 30, 2014

This is a lovely place to pass the evenings when in Galveston. We were on the third floor, with a private bath. Safe secure and quiet. We got a great night's sleep and interesting conversation at breakfast!

Innkeeper Response

A very welcoming, perfect birthday weekend!

Dave and Maria are outstanding host. Enjoyed a remarkable birthday weekend "getaway" at the Lost Bayou House. They accommodated every need and request I had. Most definitely would do it all over again.

Lost Bayou Guesthouse is very peaceful. It is in a charming neighborhood, walking distance to the beach. Great food and the bicycles are a bonus.

Cruise stop over

5 on April 28, 2014

We stayed here the night before a cruise and it was amazing!!! Situated between The Strand and the beach for easy access to both. Maria was an awesome hostess and the breakfast was perfect! Cruise parking was also included to add to the value of this stay. We'll be back next year.

Caring, friendly and professional hosts made a great stay!

4.6 on April 17, 2014

We stayed in the Lost Bayou Guest House for one night preceeding and one night after our cruise. Dave and Maria are consummate hosts. They think of things you need before you need them. The common area/refreshment centre/snack centre was lovely and equipped with all sorts of tea, juice, coffee, bottled water and snacks. They are located in a quiet neighbourhood within walking distance of the old Historic District and a 5 minute taxi ride to the Pier. They provided great suggestions for dining and were a wealth of information about the history of Galveston. Our room was well appointed and the window air conditioner kept us cool. I would highly recommend you stay in this lovely home. Thanks again, Dave and Maria

The Dunns are gracious hosts and were very generous in the free use of their bicycles. The Santa Fe room is spacious and very comfortable. Great amenities.

An Excellent Choice

4.2 on February 26, 2014

Delightful B&B in an historic old building. Amenities were more than adequate, with coffee, tea, juice, and snacks available around the clock. Hosts were friendly, helpful, and welcoming. Couldn't have asked for more.


Perfect Bed and Breakfast

5 on February 20, 2014

This stay was a gift to my parents and they thoroughly enjoyed their visit. Maria and Dave were exceptional hosts and every detail was perfect. The food was amazing the room was a quiet oasis. I would highly recommend.
