My wife and I spent 3 wonderfully relaxing days and nights at Come Friday Cottages on the Bay. The Bay Room was perfect and the view of the bay was therapeutic. Pat and Don were the perfect hosts. Their breakfasts were fantastic, home-baked breakfast breads, muffins, and kolaches, accompanied by a variety of fresh fruits, cereal, and juice. Come Friday Cottages exceeded our expectations and we have already recommended it to several of our friends. We will be back. Herb and Stephanie Coley

My wife & i had the privilage to stay at Come Friday for our 13th yr. Anniversary the minute we arrived Pat welcomed us as if we were family. She showed us the property and all it had to offer for outdoor needs from several places to bbq, fishing, sitting by the water around a fireplace, boat riding, swimming or hot tub while music playing to put you in a outdoor/relaxing mode. Then Pat proceeded to show us to our room (Captains Quarters) and suprised us with a bottle of champage!! Our room was exactly what we needed for our weekend stay. The Captains Quarter was cozy, very clean and smelled very nice that had a mini bar stocked with snacks, drinks, mini wines and beer. Last but not least the Breakfast served at 9 a.m that was very delicous but not too filling so that you can take advantage of all the great restaurants Kemah has to offer come lunch time. So if your looking for a personal, at home, family visiting from out of town kinda stay then Pat & Don at Come Friday Cottages is the place to be!! #5star

Was wanting a place to go with my lovely girlfriend to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. The pictures do not do it justice. I was blown away and left speechless by the Captains Quarters. The mini bar and full kitchen was a great surprise. Pat was nice and let us use the golf cart to go grab a bite down rode abs her brother was so helpful when the golf cart ran out off juice. Then that night my car ran out of juice and here comes Pat and her husband to the rescue. I guess what I'm trying to say is the place is electrifying. Sat on the pier fir a couple of hours talking to my gf and couldn't ask for a better night. The breakfast is amazing and they even delivered it while we were sleeping at our request. It seemed like no request was two big from the checkin time to any crazy request. They make you feel like family and we are definitively going back. Thank you Come Friday Cottages on the Bay you made my weekend amazing.

My husband and I enjoyed a couple of days at Come Friday last week in the Dinghy Room which was small but cozy and certainly space enough for the two of us. The fresh fruit at breakfast was wonderful! Unfortunately there were some plumbing issues but Pat and Don made every effort to accommodate their guests. Very relaxing stay and convenient to some great restaurants. We tried Topwater, Bubba's and Signature Classic Cafe and all were tasty. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again! Thanks for a much needed relaxing stay by the bay!
Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us. We so apologize for the plumbing schedule. We were on the list for some work that was needed to improve our property and they managed to work us in during your brief stay. It is finished now and working great!! Please come and see us again! Our priority is to make our guests happy and comfortable.

Come Friday Cottages by the Bay was a wonderful place to stay. The room was really nice and clean. Great details were taken to make it welcoming. The variety of coffees was a really nice bonus. The breakfast was truly exceptional. I am going to get a gift certificate for my brother and his wife to go there.

My Husband and I and our two young daughters have stayed at Come Friday many times since they opened. We have been in every room and love them all. Every room is so clean and fresh and accommodating. This time we were in the Bay Room suite again but we love the other rooms, too. Come Friday is a wonderful place to just run away and relax. We really utilized the pool and spa and deck areas this time. Don and Pat go out of their way to make sure everyone is comfortable and has everything they could possibly need. My girls had the best time too, just running and playing and swimming all day. This is our favorite getaway spot and we will be back again soon. I highly recommend this hidden gem of coziness to all. Being children and pet friendly is a huge plus for us. Thanks for sharing your little paradise with others. May God continue to Bless You!

Come Friday Cottages, particularly the Bay Room, has become my new favorite getaway spot. The outside drive is misleading - when we drove up, I wasn't sure what to expect - but I won't stay anywhere else in the area now. This is perfect for relaxing, joining in on activities in either Kemah or Galveston, fishing, a working retreat, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in every way! -C. Rodriquez

It was our first visit to this part of Texas, and we felt very welcomed. Renee took care of us with personal warmth and gracious hospitality. For instance when she heard that we prefer to barbecue with charcoal she set up a brand new barbecue and bought us charcoal to make the best shrimp we have ever eaten, bought just off the boat from Hillman's down the road. Since we had never been to Galveston before, we appreciated all the information Renee provided about the area. We felt very cared for, loved the peaceful scene right outside our deck in the lovely Bay Room suite. The lapping waves, laughing gulls, and soaring pelicans provided a back drop for a stay that seemed too short. Coming from a different part of the country, it was also very interesting for us to hear about the power of the hurricanes and how they have affected this Galveston coast area, and are very glad that Renee and family rebuilt this lovely oasis. We highly recommend the Come Friday cottages.

My teenage daughter and I needed a quiet but still exciting little get-away from the hustle of city life so I went looking online for a place to stay in the Kemah area. I was thrilled to find the Come Friday Cottages and booked the Captains Quarters immediately. We found the cottage to be exactly as presented online, even better actually! It was perfectly clean and smelled so nice and the grounds are so quaint, friendly neighbors and the owners, Don and Pat treat you like old friends! The continental breakfast that Don brought to the cottage the next morning was perfect and even had a little white rose in a bud vase on the tray! It's this attention to detail that matters and made me come home and turn around and immediately book the same cottage again for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, only this time we're staying two nights! The pier is perfect for fishing, the fire pit was great fun after a long day on the Kemah boardwalk. Next time we're going to make s'mores at the fire pit. I highly suggest staying here. You will not find a better value or a better way to spend some quiet time on the bay.

We love to spend time with our guests and tenants and we enjoy being on the water every chance we get. Come Friday has a 265' pier and we enjoy year-round fishing and boating.
