HYGGE (pronounced HUE-gah) is a Danish word simply described as enjoying life's simple pleasures.

HYGGE is our newly renovated guesthouse, hidden in a quiet secret garden, creating the perfect backdrop for a peaceful and private stay. This charming cottage promises a comfortable, pleasant and restful retreat. It is the perfect setting for a romantic hideaway or a place to indulge, unwind and revive.

Conveniently, only minutes from Goliad's downtown district and historic sites.

The space

Imagine waking up to the glow of the morning sun peeks through the guesthouse windows highlighting the beautifully decorated space. A mixture of modern/industrial with a splash of Bohemian décor creates a unique and refreshingly colorful oasis.

Artwork collected by the host has been placed throughout the guesthouse. The bathroom features a large walk-in shower. Other amenities include satellite TV and wi-fi availability.

A continental breakfast will be available throughout the week, with a delicious hot breakfast on the weekends.

This place was fantastic. I am an insurance adjuster and had to be down there to inspect properties and was fortunate enough to find this gem. The hosts were amazing and even invited me in for wine and chatting. Really enjoyed my short time there.
