My husband and I were able to get away for a short getaway, and this B and B could not have been a better choice. Mrs Barbara was very accommodating. The wine cake and breakfast loaf that she left us were both so moist and delicious. The court yard is a great place to have a glass of wine and...

First B&B ever, and we couldn't have made a better choice! Mrs. Barbara was the best, she not only answered all of the numerous questions we had; but she was warm, inviting, and understanding. We've already started planning our next stay. We had the opportunity to stay in the flying cloud and it was like a step back in time,...

We stayed in the Flying Cloud for two nights. We had a wonderful time. Our favorite thing was sitting on the porch sipping hot tea at night.

My husband and I along with another couple stayed in the Challenge Suite at Clipper House. We had the best time! The cottage is adorable and the gardens outside are beautiful as well.

Stayed in the Mont Blanc which is a very cozy cabin perfect for a weekend getaway. Within a short walking distance to multiple shops and the Boardwalk. Plus if your playing Pokemon Go, the restaurant across the street is a Pokestop - depending on your GPS signal you're in range without ever having to leave the cabin. The courtyard is...

A nice relaxing Kemah retreat. After previously staying at hotels this stay increased our enthusiasm about Kemah greatly! Even in the 95+ degree weather, it was a pleasure just sitting on the front porch listening to the fountains and enjoying the serenity while yet being so close / walking distance to the boardwalk, bars, resturaunts, and a coffee shop.

If you have allergies don't stay here. The grounds are landscaped and well groomed however when you step inside the mold/mildew smell will hit you immediately. The setup is great.
