Located in the historic Silk Stocking District just blocks from the beach, Pleasure Pier, and minutes from the Strand, this 1923 Mediterranean style Bed and Breakfast exhibits a comfortable elegance throughout.
Originally constructed for Henry Truehart Adriance, a partner in the first chartered realty firm in Galveston, the property continued as a private residence until 2002.
The house sits on a third of an acre lot surrounded by lush tropical foliage, making it an ideal setting for a romantic getaway or just a break from the workday world.
The inn was purchased by Jeff and Polly Jones, who have incorporated family heirloom furniture into the decor, including Grandma's 1927 Brambach baby grand piano, which has been meticulously restored and is ready to play! Jeff and Polly are in the process of updating the historic building in hopes that it will be fully restored by the homes 100th anniversary in 2023. The Jones Family pledges to provide the best possible experience for their guest, offering clean and comfortable accommodations and homemade meals prepared with love!

From the moment you enter this unique and warm Galveston bed and breakfast, you will experience the true meaning of island hospitality.
