Truly a beautiful stay! The architecture of the homes and my room is breathe taking. Tammy was such a delight as well. Breakfast was very tasty as well. My room had a very large balcony, it was such a pleasure enjoying the views. I will be staying there again! :)

Great hidden little place.
We make our annual winter trip to Galveston so we don't have to deal with crowds. We stayed at the Schaefer Haus this time, and it will be our new go to place. Awesome historic place, very close to the Strand area. Tami was great and made us feel welcome from the minute we got there until we left. BTW, they are also very COVID friendly as well.

Will not stay there again.
My husband and I were scheduled to stay there for three nights in December. During our drive to Galveston Tammy called us to find out what time we would be arriving. SHE FAILED TO MENTION THAT THE HEATER WAS BROKEN IN THE HOUSE... although we did have a space heater in our room. We arrived that evening and slept fine but awoke to a house that was 57 degrees. Breakfast was not fun. She, then, explained to us that she was awaiting the arrival of a part and that she expected that the heater would be available later that day. She offered to reimburse us for the night if we chose to change hotels, which we did. I understand that old houses have mechanical issues... but her failure to tell us of the issue when on the phone earlier that day is inexcusable.
