My husband and I enjoy staying at B&Bs, so on our recent trip to San Antonio we stayed at the Brackenridge House. This is a lovely B&B and the host Lily couldn't be nicer! Our stay from the host, to our room, to the breakfast and the little extra's like brownies made our stay memorable. Another nice thing about this B&B is the location. You can walk to the River Walk and also to many nice restaurants located only a couple of blocks from the Brackenridge House. I highly recommend this B&B!!!

This bed and breakfast is our favorite place to stay when we come to San Antonio. Lily takes such good care of us! The Riverwalk, The Alamo, and downtown are all within easy walking distance. A couple of great local restaurants are just around the corner. The rooms are beautiful and have everything you could possibly need! And breakfast is always a treat. We can't wait to come visit again.

My husband and I stayed at Brackenridge House for our 24th wedding anniversary. It is walking distance to everything downtown and the river walk. We stayed in the Mocking Bird suite and it was beautiful and very romantic. The room was very clean and I loved all of the antiques. We will be staying here again.

We stayed in the Cardinal Room, a very cozy, luxuriously appointed very private and comfortable hide-away in the back of the house. The location is convenient to the Riverwalk and town. We enjoyed very magic moments during early morning and evening strolls through the neighborhood, along the river and into town. The service was exceptional. Very present, exceptionally friendly, helpful and responsive. The home-cooked breakfast was creative and delicious delivered on the beautiful balcony outside the traditional, beautifully furnished and decorated parlor. An exceptional value for what was delivered. We absolutely will use this as our base for our next visit! KE

We stayed here in the Hummingbird room in February for our 25th wedding anniversary. It is a lovely spot & was welcoming with everything you could need in a home away from home. The room was extremely clean with a comfortable king size bed. The sherry was a nice touch & the food was just delicious. It is within walking distance to the Riverwalk but also has some restaurants near by you can go to as well. We also used the hot tub which was right outside our room. We had a wonderful time. Linda is a great hostess. Highly recommend!
