Very much enjoyed our stay in in an area so deeply rich in Historic significance for the state of Texas. It was awesome to learn of the excitement of being such a foothold in the creation of Texas, then the solemn realization of the tragic of hurricanes that destroyed it all. So neat that this property is located right next to a couple of those cool historic sites. Beautiful views and perfect for the two of us. Very Nice!
(Our only wish was to have a table lamp or reading lamp in the living room, and a reading lamp next to one of the recliners.)
Blue Crab Cottage was a great place to stay!
Had a great time. Enjoyed the area and the fishing!
The Perfect Weekend!
A very relaxing weekend. Being able to have your morning coffee on the back deck and then head downstairs to fish right on the property is wonderful. We will most definitely be back and soon!
Great location! Very clean! Great experience!
Great weekend getaway
Great little place, in a perfect location to escape just about everything. Phylis takes great care to make it your weekend home, and is quite lovely to visit with also. My son and I had a fantastic time fishing and just hanging out. Thank you for your hospitality.
Fishing, Birds, Beaches, Solitude.
Historic Indianola Texas has a multitude of activities for your family. Along with world class fishing, Indianola is one of the premier bird watching destinations on the Gulf Coast. The Blue Crab Cottage overlooks Matagorda Bay from its front deck, Powder Horn Lake Bayou from the back deck. Marvel at the dolphins rising on bay side and the multitude of coastal birds nesting and feeding in the bayou. Gather oysters and blue crabs,fish the bay, the bayou, and the marina for speckled trout, red fish, drum, flounder, sheep head, the list is as endless as the sunrises and sunsets from the Blue Crab Cottage Bedroom. Our family loves kayaking the bayou and the scenic 5 mile paddle down Matagorda island past Port O'Connor to the open Gulf.
We invite you to stay at our Blue Crab Cottage in Indianola for the memory of a lifetime.

Why Mark or Jeanne Reyher chose Port Lavaca
When the children were growing up, we traveled to Port Arkansas in the Winter to enjoy the beaches and fishing. Recently on a return trip, we found the forgotten Indianola. Its devastating story, awesome fishing, beautiful bay, birds, and seclusion 'set the hook' for us. In 2012 we bought the Blue Crab Cottage for a warm place to play in the Winter
What makes this Cottage unique
Being avid outdoor enthusiasts, the fishing and kayaking drew us to Indianola. When we saw the Blue Crab's own little dock on the bayou, the breathtaking sunrises and sunsets from the decks, and the 9 palm trees, we could not resist this little slice of Texas.
