Come Friday Cottages on the Bay

3709 Bayshore Dr. , Bacliff, TX 77518 USA (Show map)


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.

You will not be disappointed w/ The Bay Room!! The view from inside is excellent, & even better outside on your private balcony. We were impressed, & enjoyed every minute of our quiet, peaceful, relaxing stay. Looking forward to a return visit! ( I gave the "onsite dining" a "met my expectations", b/c it was cereal & milk, but I knew they only offered a continental breakfast, so " it met my expectations".)

My husband and I recently spent two nights at Come Friday Cottages on the Bay and stayed in the Bed and View room. There is a private deck just outside the room which provides a beautiful view of the bay. The room was exceptionally clean. There is not onsite dining; however, information is provided on near-by restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing stay.

Great place to stay!

My family (wife and 2 young boys) visited Come Friday Cottages on the Bay over Spring Break. We had a great time fishing, going to the local beaches and NASA. I highly recommend this place... great hosts as well!!!

Second time around!!

So this was our second time staying in the Bay Room and it was even better the second time. We came for our anniversary again and it was an awesome stay. First let me start by saying how sweet Pat and Don are. My husband is still talking about them and how sweet they are. We wanted to learn how to fish and Don gave us a quick lesson and we stayed on the pier all night enjoying ourselves. I love the room, the view and the people. I am about to book this room for my birthday in two months

Our “Cruise Ship”

We have now stayed here 3 times and have already booked our next visit. When we sit on our little deck looking out at the bay, if feels like we are on a cruise ship. Wonderful, quiet place to relax and chill.

We booked our stay several months ago for "Captains Quarter" room since the "Bay Room" wasn't available. When I got my email reminder of our stay two weeks prior to arrival, it said, "Bay Room". I though that's weird, but let it slip away...We were thrilled when we arrived and Pat and Renee said we had been upgraded! Wow! We had a wonderful 3 days and are going back to Pat's brother place for 7 days over Thanksgiving. And have 2 more vacations planned with them. We've been timesharing for 16 years, but will be selling in Spring 2019...this is ou "HAPPY PLACE" and we will return time after time.

Beautiful, loved the Bay Room!

Loved our stay in the Bay Room! The room to stay in, it has the view! Close to Kemah Boardwalk, not too far to go to Galveston. Little kitchenette, will provide you a grill to cook on. Great people! Loved our getaway! Thank you!

The Captain's Quarters

This awesome room has been set-up to make you feel like you are sleeping in a wooden ship's hull. The colors are darker stained wood (original to the property) and rich navy blues. The lighting in the room actually simulates an under water feel. So cool! This room has a great little kitchenette and fridge so you can cook in house if you would like. The bathroom is pirate themed and super cute with a great mix of appeal for all the sea lovers and if you like to sleep, this room can be totally shut off from exterior lighting. You could sleep for days! The bed is super cozy with extra plush pillows and blankets and a TV overhead. And the Captain's Quarters offers a second TV in the living area.
