Rockport house description

You will love sitting outside on the fabulous SOUTHERN-facing deck! Watch beautiful sunrises & sunsets, see pelicans soar and dive, herons, egrets and skimmers as well. Occasionally we are graced with the presence of a dolphin or two in Dolphin Canal. Winter time is a great time for birding. Whooping Cranes migrate to the nearby Aransas Wildlife Refuge between November and March.

The well stocked kitchen has everything you need to prepare your meals. There is no need to bring spices or coffee/tea. That is provided along with snacks and bottled water. So, if you arrive late and have not had time to go to the store, there will be fresh hot coffee for you in the morning! You can dine inside or out on the deck overlooking Dolphin Canal. One of the best features of Pelican Guest House is the SOUTHERN EXPOSURE. This provides tropical breezes in the summer and protection from a cold north wind in the winter!

Rockport is a perfect getaway place with quaint shops, art galleries, museums, an aquarium & restaurants. There is great fishing, bird-watching, or it is just a great place to kick back and relax! The Rockport /Fulton area also hosts many festivals and events throughout the year. We'll provide you with maps and info to make your visit complete.

Come stay at Pelican Guest House.... We know you'll want to return!

Please read our reviews! We have had wonderful guests and their reviews 'tell it all'!

                          About the owner: I am a long time educator and hope to retire in the next year or two. Jerry is self employed and is also busy with several projects...mainly his sailboat! Most of the time we are around, but never 'in your space'. We enjoy our guests, but respect their need for privacy and a restful vacation.

                          Why the Owner Chose Rockport:
                          Wonderful location with easy access to many events and conveniences. Rockport beach, aquariums, shops, museums, art galleries, birding areas are very close! Kayak rental available and they will deliver kayaks to you on our property.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          You will relax and unwind. That's all I ever want to do when I go on vacation. However, there is lots see and explore in the Rockport/Fulton area.
