We had a great weekend at the Stanley-Fisher House. It is beautiful, warm and inviting. Rik and Peggy Stanley was great hosts and made us feel totally at home. The breakfasts each morning were some of the best we have had. My husband is a chef and he actually asked Peggy for one of her recipes! We can't wait for...

From the time we steped out of the car we felt welcome in this beautiful home. The breakfasts were great. We even had special decorations and food for St. Patricks day. The conversation was great too. Felt like we were staying with relatives. I was glad they had a bedroom on the main floor. We could see the intercostal waterway...

My husband and I spent the weekend at The Stanley-Fisher House in February 2014. It was the most restful weekend we have ever experienced. The Stanleys are very hospitable couple and they made out stay very comfortable. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious . We have already made reservations for another weekend in the near future.

Peggy and Rik were wonderful hosts at the Historic Stanley-Fisher House. We were greeted by Peggy and given a very informative tour of the house to our room. We stayed in the Blue room (room 2) and were dazzled by the charm and comfort of the room. Peggy reassured us that we were free to make ourselves at home and...

I first read the reviews of the Stanley-Fisher house here on TripAdvisor and was compelled to book a night during my recent trip to Matagorda. This home is gloriously historic, built in 1832, and such care and detail is taken to preserve its history. I traveled with a girlfriend, and when we walked in, we were graciously greeted by Peggy...

The charms of the Stanley-Fisher house are eclipsed only by the hospitality of Peggy and Rick Stanley, the most gracious hosts we have ever encountered in our years of travels (and occasional travails) in the B&B community. My husband and I have treasured the Matagorda location for years but were often deterred by the limitations of finding the precise convergence...
