Located in the historic Silk Stocking District just a few short blocks from the beach and Pleasure Pier, and minutes from the Strand, this 1924 Mediterranean style Bed and Breakfast exhibits a comfortable elegance throughout. Originally constructed for Henry Trueheart Adriance, a partner in the first chartered real estate firm in Galveston, the house sits on a third of an acre surrounded by lush tropical foliage, making it an ideal setting for a romantic getaway or a quick break from workweek stress.
The inn was purchased by Jeff and Polly Jones who have incorporated family heirloom furniture, including Grandma's 1927 baby grand piano which has been fully restored, into the decor. The Jones are updating the historic building in hopes it will be fully restored by the home's 100th anniversary in 2024. The Jones Family pledges to provide the best possible experience for their guests with clean comfortable accommodations and food prepared with love!
Avenue O is not your Grandma's bed and breakfast. It offers the amenities of a large hotel, yet 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. We like to say 'come as our guest; leave as a friend'!
Avenue O is the perfect venue for your next occasion. We will cater your event, too! Enjoy a tea party in the garden or mingle with your guests in front of the living room fire while enjoying music played on the baby grand piano. Our grounds are the perfect setting for your wedding or vow renewal; Jeff is ordained to perform both. Let us help you create a memorable experience for you next special occasion.
