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.

Enjoyed the stay

4.2 on June 16, 2014

Great location and friendly owners, so sad to hear that they will be closing down this summer. I would have loved to stay again in the future. All the rooms were awesome, love the fact that they designed everything down to smallest detail as to make each room unique.

Outstanding, Warm, Inviting...Food Beautiful, Fresh, Rich

Lost Count...

I have stayed here so many times I have lost count. Every time is a treat. Ron and Prudence are so very nice and accommodating. Ron is an Excellent cook and I highly recommend staying here. Very short distance to downtown and the Zoo. It is in a quiet area and is a nice reprieve from the hustle and bustle of DT SA.

We love the Ruckman Haus!

My husband & I stayed recently there and had a great experience. Everything was nice, the room, the neighborhood where is located, the whole house it's lovely and quiet. The food is wonderful, and Ron & Prudence are extremely nice and welcoming people. We recommend this place 100% & we'd love to stay there again!

My sisters and sister-in-law joined me at the Ruckman Haus. I had stayed there before and recommended it to the others. The owners are so helpful and pleasant. The food is plentiful and delicious. We had such a wonderful weekend together and the rooms just added to the memories of the trip. I will miss staying there on future trips to SA after they stop being a B&B, but they deserve a quiet retirement. Thanks for your hospitality.
