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. Our Event Coordinator is glad to arrange any type of outing or special night in just for you.

LOVE This B & B!!!

5 on July 04, 2015

My second visit to Come Friday Cottages was last weekend...such a relaxing place. Pat and Don are great, the accommodations are nice and clean...all in all a very restful visit. Breakfast is amazing with fresh fruit and other yummy options. Very close to Kemah which is nice. I will definitely be back!


Post cruise stay - beautiful and relaxing B&B

5 on June 09, 2015

I'm So happy that my husband and I chose to stay in this beautiful B&B for our post cruise stay to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Pat & Don were the perfect hosts and their home was comfortable, cosy, clean and inviting. We had everything we could have needed and more. Pat served a beautiful multi course breakfast every morning which had been cooked by Don. Something different was presented to us each day and set us up until our evening meal. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub and the beautiful views from our bay front room/suite. It was so relaxing after the hustle and bustle of our cruise and we took full advantage of the peace and quiet. If you are looking for somewhere that you can completely relax you have found the right place! We had the most self indulgent lazy time. I Have never experienced a holiday stay where I switched off so completely and quickly. It was the highlight of our trip and I feel blessed to have experienced it. Hopefully we will see Pat & Don again if we are fortunate to be able to vacation in Texas again. Lisa & James Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK

OUTSTANDING

We searched the web for a small private place on the water.. what we found was a small private place on the water with outstanding breakfast.. service.. care.. and quality! Can not wait to get back to OUR little place on the bay! There are many things to offer for vacation and family fun, but we were just wanting to sit and regroup.We chose to do that . long walks, lovely sunrise, and sweet new friends.. can't be beat!


Come Friday - #1 on my list of B&Bs!

5 on May 16, 2015

I am one of those people who enjoys going places, and makes all reservations in B&Bs - and with just this first (of many more to come), Come Friday Cottages has moved to the top of the list of favorites. We spent two very rainy days and nights at Come Friday's Bayfront Room, and what a fantastic experience! From the fantastic view of the bay and the ship traffic thereon, to the beautifully handcrafted breakfast, and on to the most comfortable of areas I've ever seen in a B&B, Come Friday absolutely hits the top! While its proximity to Galveston and Kemah are wonderful, the peace and serenity of sitting outside, watching the bay, is an entire vacation's worth of those of us who could use some de-stressing in our lives. Whether that view is sunny and calm, or dark and stormy, one is just as fantastic as the other. Pat & Don are wonderful innkeepers, and do everything they can to make your trip comfortable and safe. This wonderful couple will definitely be on my list of those I will see again!

This was our very first stay at any B&B so I don't have anything to compare it to, but my wife and I were very pleased. The owners were super nice and accommodating. We are looking forward to when we can go again. We stayed in The Dingy and it was a small and comfortable room. We will definitely recommend this to our friends.


CAPTAIN RELAXED

5 on April 27, 2015

WOW, Talk about a relaxing weekend!!! Found out about the place from friends, and What a place. Pat and Don make you feel like Family. They go out of their way to make you feel like you are at home. The continental breakfast is more like a buffet. 3 choices of cereal, fresh cut fruit, home made muffins, juices, best selection of gourmet coffee, ect, ect!!! Went to local restaurant called Noah's Arc down the road. Some of the best sea food around, had a little band there that played old Beach music and classic rock. Evening time is the best. Sitting on gazebo and relaxing with cold beverages and listening to the waves lapping on the shore!! Talk about forgetting the every day stress. Did not get to do any fishing, but it is available!! Hated to leave!!! Stayed in Captains quarters. Very clean, full of all the comforts of home. We have already decided to make this a do again. Also not far from Galveston Bay. Thank you Pat and Don for making experience so Great!!!! Can not wait to get back.

Innkeeper Response
We so enjoyed meeting you and are always thankful when guests return and bring their friends to share the experience. That is the ultimate complement. We have guests that we lovingly call our "frequent flyers". We look forward to your next visit.


Darling Dinghy

4.4 on April 04, 2015

We stayed in the Dinghy. I am a single income mom of four, and the two teens wanted to go somewhere for Spring Break. I was excited to find a place that fit our tight budget. Pat called and talked with me about the small room and three people, and was very accommodating of our situation. They were so sweet! We had a great night away, and we can't wait to go again!

Innkeeper Response
We are so excited that you had a great night. That room is totally designed for two people as I explained when we talked. Maybe next trip your budget will allow you a larger room so that you are not so cramped. We appreciate you choosing to stay with us.


Enjoyable!

My daughter and I had an excellent spring break at Come Friday Cottages on the Bay. Don and Pat Rogers are very engaging and fabulous hosts. We couldn't wait for the delicious breakfast brought to our door each morning. The sunsets from the palapa were amazing!


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!
