Teri has visited the Night Swan Intracoastal B&B three times in the last three months. She comes to the area for business. She has her favorite room, so she just e-mails to let us know when she is coming. Our wireless internet is a help to her day and night. When she comes "home" in the evening after a day of work, she can relax on her private deck, or on the porch swing, or out on the 160-ft, 2-story dock. Breakfasts are a special treat for Teri, something always different! See you next time Teri!
Holly stayed at the Night Swan Intracoastal B&B in September, while visiting her grandmother. She was also escaping her very stressful job in the "big city" up north. After a wonderful therapeutic massage on her first day, you could see her relaxed feeling take over her mind, body, and spirit.
Next time she visits, hopefully her grandmother will be able to join us for breakfast, or take in a play at the local theater.
The Night Swan Intracoastal B&B hosted guests from China this week! They arrived unexpectedly by SUV, pulling a boat that would be perfect for the Intracoastal Waterway. They call Texas home, however they have been living and working in China for the better part of the last 12 years. Shannon and Robert have a 4-year old son, Haydon, and they enjoy boating and fishing.
It was great getting to know them during their stay for several days.
Next time, they should try the Dolphin View Restaurant by boat, along the Intracoastal Waterway.
