A real discovery! A beautiful old house in the beautiful King William area. Ms Deborah and her team are really doing a great job. They are friendly and helpful, the house is very clean and breakfast is delicious. We enjoyed the tea-time very much, every day there were new treats. We even had our own porch to sit and enjoy...

The cleanliness, service, and breakfast exceeded my expectations! The home is set in a great location, convenient to local restaurants. The River Walk is just a five minute drive by rental car or very inexpensive for a taxi.

My sister and I arrived on First Friday, which apparently is an art/music event every month in San Antonio.

My daughter and I spent two nights here recently and loved it! We stayed in the lavender room and it was comfortable and spacious. It was a little awkward that the claw foot tub was in the bedroom but we managed just fine! The only negative, and this was not a huge deal, is that the window a/c is a... More

We had the whole house for a family reunion and it is incredible. Period furnishings, lots of gorgeous wood trim. Breathtaking front porch. And the owner is fantastic, she doesn't live on the property but came and prepared gourmet breakfasts each morning and left snacks out in the afternoon, plus there was always tea and an espresso maker. The bedrooms... More
