    Awesome Place to Stay!

    The Schaefer Haus is a beautiful place to stay! Tammy, the owner and her staff were so friendly and wonderful. The room was very comfortable, as was the bed. Little details like robes and wine/beer in the afternoon, made our stay very special! Would definitely stay here again!

    Went the extra mile!

    This was out second time staying here and our stay was great! We were celebrating my wife's birthday and Tammy went the extra mile and made her feel very special. Although breakfast could not be served due to some code requirements beyond their control, they still provided mimosas.

  • 6.0.Good

    First of all, there are two buildings under the same management and we have been place to the second house which is located next to Schaefer Haus but in worse condition. Then we have been told that there will be NO breakfast though the rate we paid included the breakfast. Finally, the parking is only on the street by the house. It seems the place is quite and it was safe to park on the street but the space wasn't not always available.

    Great Place to stay

    We loved staying at this little historic B&B. Ashleigh it was billed as a B&B there was no breakfast. We learned that there was some reason that local business’s could not do a hot breakfast, we were a little disappointed. There was a happy hour that made up for it all. I guess you could say it was a B&B (Bed and Booze). We would definitely stay here again.

    Tammy and her personnel made our stay enjoyable! The breakfast was so delicious I had to go for seconds. The facility is beautiful and well kept. The place was so peaceful located in a safe neighborhood at walking distance to the beach. We will come back again!

    The House was beautiful on the inside. (Apparently over 100 years old) Staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place for anyone who wants to stay in a vintage Mansion while in Galveston.

    This was a wonderful place to stay! My daughter and I stayed 2 nights. It was an easy walk to the historical downtown area and wharf area. Breakfast was amazing- fresh pastries and homemade quiche. Cocktail hour allowed us to meet and chat with other guests. Our room was comfortable and cozy. Highly recommend!
