Lost Bayou Guesthouse, Galveston, Texas
Colonial Style B&B in Historic District
by Carl Burnham
Situated in the historic district by the same name, the Lost Bayou Guesthouse includes five guest rooms, 10 foot high ceilings, and a porch and deck overlook to enjoy the island breeze.
Historic 1900 Storm Photos and Aquarium Room
Built as a residence in 1890, the house survived the 1900 storm and had a lower level added in 1906 to make it 2 1/2 story. The five guest rooms are in the upper levels of the inn, and include original exposed hardwood floors.
The Aquarium Room is appointed with a comfortable sofa and chairs, with snacks, coffee, tea, and soft drinks.
Tri-Level Stairway and Look-Out
Besides the front porch areas, the back of the house has an outside staircase that leads to an overlook deck.
Each of the guest rooms are equipped with queen-sized beds (except for the Oleander Room with a king-sized bed and the Sea Breeze Room with a double bed), armoire, clock radio, and their own air conditioning and heating. Wireless Internet is available throughout (a D-Link adapter is provided with deposit).
The Oleander Room is named after a local evergreen shrub, and is decorated in purple with a leopard painting, complete with king-sized bed, chairs, desk, armoire, and window views of the courtyard. A private bathroom includes a clawfoot bathtub with shower.

The Lost Bayou Guesthouse has several interesting paintings and antiques. A painting in the bathroom of the Oleander Room is by the owner's daughter. The clawfoot tub dates to 1926, and the old mirror came from the Shamrock Hotel in Houston.
