This is a lovely old two-story hotel that dates from 1886. It's well conserved and has plenty of character. The FDR suite (no, he didn't sleep here; he just fished here) has a large sitting room, a kitchen, dining room, and a private porch. More romantic is the upstairs corner suite with a marvelous queen bed and a large tub in the bedroom. If you are looking for the perfect spot for a Texas beach vacation, look no further than Port Aransas. It is the only established town on Mustang Island, which is the longest barrier island in the world; as such, Port Aransas is surrounded by 18 miles of glorious, sandy beaches. Such long stretches of beach invite relaxing strolls, sand castle competitions, shelling or simply stretching out and lazing in the sun.
