Wake up to the sounds of the bay rolling in, and stroll down a 300-foot fishing pier to watch dolphins as you drink your coffee. If you’re hungry and want something other than our made-to-order breakfast tacos, the area has restaurants within walking distance, or take the Lodge’s golf cart to check out offerings around the neighborhood.
The Lodge sits in a small coastal village, with activities right at your fingertips: sailing, kayaking, wade fishing or one of our several guided fishing adventures are right out the back door. Boat rentals and jet skis are available nearby with ample launching facilities.
There are several local pubs close by with weekend attractions and live music. The American Legion hall offers breakfast on Saturday and Sundays – food is great and priced right, several beers on tap, plus billiards and darts to keep you entertained. A nearby rum distillery also offers live music and other entertainment. Many festivals and celebrations are observed with parades on our major roads close to the Lodge – like the Blessing of the Fleet on Kemah Boardwalk, Mardi Gras in Galveston, Dickins on the Strand, local Jazz festivals, Shrimp Festival, and many more. Check our calendar for weekly monthly festivals and activities!
The Lodge is close to Nasa Space Center, Schlitterbahn, Kemah Boardwalk, The Strand, and for those that just want to shop, Tangers Outlet mall is a short drive away.
Local restaurants – some within walking distance – include Gihooleys (mentioned in Texas Monthly and famous for their oysters!), The Top Water Grill (waterfront dining indoor and out), Noah’s Ark (a great seafood menu along with other local treats, and a top deck overlooking the bay with live entertainment on the weekends plus Saturday and Sunday brunch). If Mexican food is your favorite, Las Brisas is within 5 miles with great Mexican fare and a Saturday and Sunday brunch buffet that will please everyone. You can also grill at the Lodge with local seafood from several fish markets only a short distance away! And if you need daily supplies, there are two convenience stores withing walking distance.
