Worth your while!

Dave and Maria were extremely welcoming! We really enjoyed our experience and will return!


Kind and Caring

4.2 on November 12, 2014

While my husband and I felt the price was a little much for a room with very thin walls and no TV, we also greatly appreciated and were grateful for the amazing customer service. I can't say enough good about all of the little things that they did for us to make sure we were taken care of. I HIGHLY recommend this B&B.


Wonderful Experience

This was our first time at a B&B. From the minute we walked in it felt like staying at grandmas. Dave and Maria were excellent host. Made you feel right at home. Maria is a great cook and provided a nice variety. We would highly recommend the Lost Bayou!! Can't wait for a return visit.


Like Staying with Family

Wonderful Hosts

My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Lost Bayou Guesthouse B&B, and really enjoyed our stay. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, the food was delicious, and the house is located in a quiet, safe neighborhood. An added bonus was the guests' lounge which was well supplied with beverages and snacks. Dave and Maria are wonderful hosts - very friendly and helpful - which made our stay very pleasant. I've already recommended the Lost Bayou to friends and would be happy to stay there again.


A Must Stay

4.4 on October 29, 2014

Thank you for offering a one night stay. It was a perfect get away for a day and night stay, but wish we could have stayed longer. Pristine. Historical. Beautiful. Gracious hospitality. Only suggestion would be to add some "bam" to breakfast with some Louisiana flavor and a little background music. Thank you kindly. We'll see you again soon!


Excellent stay at a perfect location with gracious hosts!

Our brief 2 night stay at Lost Bayou with Maria and Dave was too short. It was such a cozy home and we slept like babies; feeling like we were at grandmas house. Cookies and snacks in the sitting room, excellent breakfasts, and perfectly placed in walking distance of many great restaurants. We loved our time here and would recommend it over any hotel. Maria and Dave made us feel very welcome and we would stay again in a heartbeat!

Innkeeper Response

1st B&B, stay before our Cruise

4.6 on October 05, 2014

A friend suggested to stay before our cruise. Location is within walking distance from the beach. David provided useful info about the surrounding for this 1st time Galveston visitor. We will stay here again!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much for the review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope you had a great time during your cruise.


The BEST place to start your cruise!

Our stay at The Lost Buyou was a very enjoyable experience and we surely look forward to coming back to this wonderful three story home. We love going to top B & B's which are historical, beautiful, and have super hosts to create the perfect stay. They are conveniently located close to the harbor for our cruise ship as well as near the beach. We look forward to returning soon and highly recommend this place to all travelers going to Galveston.


A Gem!

Our experience created by Maria and Dave is one that walking into the Lost Bayou Guesthouse you feel like you are home! Everything that one may need for comfort is available, including bikes to tour Galveston! We will definitely return; Highly recommend the Lost Bayou Guesthouse for a weekend getaway, week of pampering or a family summer vacation! Thank you Maria and Dave! Cindy and Mike
