Ruckman Haus is a charming, centrally-located bed and breakfast in the heart of the most historic area of San Antonio. We are located 2 miles northwest of downtown and the historic San Antonio Riverwalk. Ruckman Haus is a turn-of-the-century stucco home that reflects the distinct Spanish influences in San Antonio. We are within walking distance of many attractions and restaurants. Shopping, including antiques and traditional store items, is close by. At the house itself guests will find a spacious living room, comfortable library nook and a large dining room. Outside are a shady patio and a large deck where guests may gather for afternoon refreshments and conversation.

Relaxing Rooms and Delicious Food

5 on April 15, 2014

This is the place to stay in San Antonio! Comfortable beds, clean room, quiet area, walking distance to the River Walk, and a very friendly atmosphere. I would come back to Texas just to stay at the Ruckman Haus again. I loved it!!

You will be pleased

On site gated parking. Three porches, two on second story for relaxation and reading. Very nice garden and outdoor eating area. Good breakfast with lots of fruit.

Wouldn't stay anywhere else id in San Antinio

my facebook post made while I was there: Sitting on the veranda of on old Texas home in a overstuffed willow and wood chair (the ones that look homemade) with a calico cat curled up at my feet. Listening to the birds and waiting for the sunset while a gentle occasion breeze plays the wind chimes. The yard is simply spectacular with pots of ivy and blooming pansies, violets, geraniums everywhere. Old brick walkways and stain glass windows ivy covered pillars-- wish you were here

Best B&B in my Experience

Every detail has been considered and addressed. The rooms and common areas (porches, living room, patio) are beautifully decorated and comfortable. Rooms have their own refrigerators stocked with water and his/her comfy robes. Guests have access to tea, coffee, wine, and beer at all times. Cars are parked in a secure, gated area. Prudence and Ron know the area well and are very helpful with directions and recommendations. Delicious breakfasts complete the experience.

Ruckman Haus is the perfect getaway
