Stroll along the beach, go fishing or bird watching, tour the antique shops and historic buildings of Matagorda, or retreat to the house and take pleasure in the serene surroundings, all during your stay at the Stanley-Fisher House Bed and Breakfast.


The Stanley-Fisher House, one of the first houses ever built in Texas, is listed as a Texas Historic Landmark. In 1832, Samuel Rhoads Fisher, of Philadelphia, built the house for his family. Fisher, one of 300 colonists recruited by Stephen F. Austin, was First Secretary of the Republic of Texas Navy and a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence. It is very likely that Stephen F. Austin and Sam Houston were guests in the house from time to time.

The house has withstood the tests of time and elements, and has been restored to its original splendor with modern amenities for your comfort. We welcome you to relax in our home, in your private bedroom, or on our screened-in porch. Enjoy a home-cooked breakfast served in the dining room by your hosts, or choose to receive a breakfast basket delivered to your room.

Innkeepers Rik and Peggy Stanley will be happy to give you a tour of Matagorda, recommend restaurants nearby, and provide you with accommodations to make your stay pleasant and memorable.
