Located in the historic Silk Stocking District just a few short blocks from the beach and the new Pleasure Pier and minutes from the Strand; this 1923 Mediterranean style Bed and Breakfast exhibits a comfortable elegance throughout. Originally constructed for Henry Truehart Adriance, a partner in the first chartered realty firm in Galveston, it continued as a private residence until 2002. It was then purchased by Jim and Connie Porter for the purpose of converting it into an island retreat. Prior to moving to Galveston, Jim and Connie were long-time residents of the South Pacific and this influence can be seen throughout the house. The house sits on a third of an acre surrounded by lush tropical foliage, making it an ideal setting for a romantic getaway or just a break from the workaday world. The inn is now run by Jeff and Polly Jones who pledge to provide the best possible experience for our guests with clean comfortable accommodations and great food!
Although Avenue O offers the amenities of a large hotel, it maintains the ambiance and personalized service of a home away from home. From the moment you enter this unique and warm Galveston Bed and Breakfast, you will experience the true meaning of Island Hospitality.
