My husband and I recently enjoyed a weekend stay at the Chicken Paradise Bed and Breakfast in San Antonio. What a treat! This truly is a paradise right in the heart of the city. It has a very quiet, relaxed, and country feel to it. Beautiful grounds, a very inviting pool (which we will enjoy on another visit--too cold to swim the weekend we were there), adorable chickens (lots! the source of the eggs for those mouth-watering omelets), a large beautifully furnished suite filled with antiques, one of the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in, a small kitchenette (with just a microwave and small refrigerator; no way to cook), CD player, and flat screen TV with cable. It's the perfect place to relax, read, get away from the hectic schedule. The owners go out of their way to make you feel like royalty. Anne has put many helpful restaurant and sightseeing links on their website, and they helped point us in the right direction when we headed out. Joe is the chef, although I am sure Anne helps out in the kitchen as well. The breakfasts they serve are absolutely mouthwatering. It's almost worth a trip there just to enjoy breakfast! They went out of their way to accommodate our diet needs; everything they serve there is gluten-free ( a must for us), and I cannot eat eggs, so they created wonderful egg-free options for me. So delicious! It was all presented so beautifully, too. You really must try this place. You'll love it! Really perfect for couples.
