My wife and I stayed at Ruckman House in San Antonio about two years ago for three nights. This was our first visit to San Antonio and found the city very charming and historic. Out room at Ruckman House was well appointed and clean. We also enjoyed the well made breakfasts each morning. Our issue was with the discussions we... More

Supercozy rooms and excellent service! What else could you possibly ask for? We especially enjoyed the breakfasts and the complimentary drinks. We had a rental car so we never tried to get around with public transportation, but I guess most don't around here. The hosts were friendly and very willing to give recommendations for things to do and where to... More

My girlfriend and I visited San Antonio during Spring Break and stayed at the Ruckman Haus for 3 nights. What a wonderful place to stay. Ron and Prudence have done a fantastic job renovating and decorating the place with keen eye to detail, Pottery Barn linens, towels, and rugs as an example. The place is quiet, clean, cozy, and our... More

Ruckman Haus is a lovely restored home just a short drive from San Antonio's main attractions. It is a wonderful spot to unwind and enjoy a glass of complimentary wine either in the beautiful living room or on one of the decks at the back and top of the house. Breakfasts are huge - far too much food in fact... More

My husband and I along with another couple came to San Antonio for the stock show and rodeo. We decided to stay at the Ruckman Haus and loved it. Since it was my husband's 30th birthday weekend, we stayed in the sun room which has a comfy king size bed and lots of windows overlooking the grounds. Prudence was so... More

Some simple things can make a difference. The innkeepers (Ron and Prudence Ruckman) make just a little more effort of...everything... from the finishing touch in the room to the awesome (and big) breakfast they serve. You feel the warmth, friendlyness and pleasure they have in their work. Gorgeously situated across San Pedro park, convenient close to downtown. I enjoyed everh... More

I stayed in the Luxembourg Room for one night-most B&B's require a two night stay on a weekend, but Ruckman does not. Prudence and Ron were excellent hosts. The room is one of the smallest, but has a deck, so the room didn't feel small. Everything was clean and in order. I missed the breakfast due to a early meeting,... More

We had the most amazing time here, so close to Downtown San Antonio, there were many places to eat, drink & relax. There were times when we just wanted to stay in because it was so relaxing & just drink a glass of wine on the porch. I will never forget this experience & it is located in one of... More

Visited San Antonio with my wife and stayed at the Ruckman Haus for 2 days. This was my first B&B experience and it was simply amazing. Prudence is one of the kindest ladies you could meet and Ron's breakfasts are to die for. If you want restaurant recommendations, Ron is your man. We stayed in the French room. This room... More

Where do I start? This is the most welcoming B&B I have ever stayed at, in any country. Ron and Prudence cannot do enough to ensure your stay is an absolute experience. We stayed here for 4 nights in mid November 2013 and loved every single minute. We choose the Sun Room Suite and what a good decision. The room... More
