Coppersmith Inn Bed & Breakfast
A Queen Anne Victorian home maintained to exacting standards just six blocks from the beach and seawall.
Built in 1887, this Victorian home is the only bed-and-breakfast on its block of Victorian architecture in Galveston's East End. Live oak and palm trees shade this historic two-story home that challenges even the oldest trees for dominance of the sky. A picket fence, gingerbread trim, double veranda and turret tower highlight the exterior. Inside you'll find rooms filled with antiques and a winding staircase graced with stained-glass windows and cobalt blue transoms. The five rooms at the Coppersmith Inn are decorated with antiques and come with private baths. In addition, the Carriage House features a private staircase entrance from the garden deck, while Clara's Country Cottage boasts a double-bed loft and a claw foot tub. Warm yourself next to the neo-classical fireplace in Victoria's Room, enjoy the view from the large bay windows in Jasmine's Room and admire the Art Nouveau armoire in Heather's Rose Room. Free soft drinks and water are available in all rooms, and a full complimentary breakfast is offered each day. Special packages include weddings, honeymoons, anniversaries and evening rides in a turn-of-the-century horse-drawn carriage. Mixed with the inn’s quaint charms are free Wi-Fi, cable TV, DVD/CD players and individual temperature controls.
