A Beckmann Inn
& Carriage House
Bed & Breakfast

San Antonio, Texas

Our Bed & Breakfast Inn is located in San Antonio, Texas across the street from the Riverwalk, minutes to the Alamo by trolley. It was built in 1886 by Albert Beckmann for his bride, Marie Dorothea, daughter of the Guenther Flour Mill family, on the mill grounds. Several rooms and porches have been added since.

The beautiful wrap-around porch warmly welcomes guests to the main house and to the gracious experience of Victorian hospitality in a relaxing atmosphere. The white wicker furniture invites you to relax and enjoy your "welcome tea" on our wonderful sun porch.

Entering through the rare burl pine door, you stand on the intricately designed wood mosaic floor imported from Paris, in a spacious living room with 14-foot high ceilings and tall classic windows with beveled glass inserts. The Victorian furniture completes the nostalgic decor for our guests enjoyment. Arch shaped pocket doors with framed opaque glass, open to the formal dining room, where breakfast is served. A large multi-paned window looks out into the sun porch, which is filled with white wicker furniture, flowers and plants.

A gourmet breakfast with a breakfast dessert is served at our Inn, and includes fresh ground coffee, specialty teas, fruit juice, a main entree, fresh fruit and coffeecake. Guest rooms feature private baths, air conditioning, 14-foot high ceilings with fans, tall ornately carved queen-sized antique Victorian beds, and colorful floral furnishings, TV's, phones, guest refrigerators, robes, desks and access to fax machines. The Carriage House is adjacent to the main house, and features shuttered windows with flower-filled boxes. The patio and gardens complete a picturesque view of our Bed and Breakfast.

The King William historic district has eleven great restaurants: The Guenther House, the Blue Star Brewing Co., El Mirador, La Focaccia, Rosario's, Feast, MadHatter's Tea Room, The Monterey, Azuca, La Frite, and The Liberty Bar. It's always nice to come back after a busy day to freshen up and be able to walk to one of our neighborhood restaurants.

San Antonio Riverwalk

The landscaped part of the Riverwalk begins across the street and within a short distance, it will take you to all of the downtown area restaurants, shops, and other area attractions including:

  • Alamo
  • The River Walk
  • Arneson River Theatre
  • La Villita
  • Tower of Americas
  • Institute of Texan Cultures

Or, you can take the trolley, which stops around the corner and leisurely travels through the King William Historic District, the Southtown area, and then to all the downtown areas you will need to see. The trolley also continues on to the Spanish Governor's Palace, the San Fernando Cathedral, the El Mercado (the Mexican Market), Alamodome, and Sunset Train Station. Convenient transportation is also available to San Jose Mission, Sea World, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, the zoo, the Botanical Gardens, and the museums.
