Everything we wanted and more.

“A lovely opportunity to step away from the rush of everyday life and step back in time. The calm and elegance and beauty of this room, this mansion have been everything we wanted and more.”

Immersive historical experience!

“For those who like immersive historical experiences that harken back to the pre-1900 heyday when Galveston was not only a major port city, but the largest city in the state, there is nothing like staying at one of the grand old homes that once housed the town's elite.”

— P.L.
