We stayed in the Redoubtable for two nights the cottage was very comfortable and clean. The location is great and within walking distance of all Kemahs attractions. The garden, winery tour, and eculant restaurant were all nice additions to the B&B. We looked forward the to the homemade cake and bread in the morning with our hot coffee while sitting... More

First B&B ever, and we couldn't have made a better choice! Mrs. Barbara was the best, she not only answered all of the numerous questions we had; but she was warm, inviting, and understanding. We've already started planning our next stay. We had the opportunity to stay in the flying cloud and it was like a step back in time,... More

Stayed in the Mont Blanc which is a very cozy cabin perfect for a weekend getaway. Within a short walking distance to multiple shops and the Boardwalk. Plus if your playing Pokemon Go, the restaurant across the street is a Pokestop - depending on your GPS signal you're in range without ever having to leave the cabin. The courtyard is... More

A nice relaxing Kemah retreat. After previously staying at hotels this stay increased our enthusiasm about Kemah greatly! Even in the 95+ degree weather, it was a pleasure just sitting on the front porch listening to the fountains and enjoying the serenity while yet being so close / walking distance to the boardwalk, bars, resturaunts, and a coffee shop.
