We have offered our home to guests for 8 years and only receive top reviews.

Our home was built in 1886 and is a 1900 Storm Survivor. We are centrally located in the heart of the Lost Bayou Historic District and are 7 blocks to the beach and approximately 7 blocks to the Historic Strand District.

Families with children are most welcome for relaxation and to make those special vacation memories.

Although the house has been updated with modern amenities, all guests have commented on the tranquil atmosphere that exists when they walk thru the door.

We are a Galveston Historical Foundation 2009 Post Ike Recovery Restoration Award winner and are one of three homes featured in the November 2010 issue of the Galveston Monthly Magazine.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Galveston to celebrate 4th of July for over 8 years and this is the 2nd year we've stayed in a house! This house is absolutely beautiful and it's like going back into time. We will definitely be back next year and pray we will be able to rent this gem again! Thank you again Ms. Dawn your house is gorgeous!

Lovely house. Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Only complaint among us would be the showers in the 2 bathrooms. Very small but workable. Location was great! Would definitely rent again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and hope to have you as our guests again. Bathroom and closet size in 1886 sure isn't what we are used to today! Take care, Dawn

Amazing home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at A Bygone Era with 2 friends and it was a wonderful and very enjoyable home! All of us live in historic homes so this stay really was as if we were at home. Everything was so well appointed, extremely clean and comfortable. Great location. Walking distance to Bishops Palace. Dawn was very responsive to any questions we had. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. For any future trips to Galveston, I will definitely stay here again. A real gem!
