About

Our Luxury Inn serves our three-course gourmet breakfast directly to you in your room or on our balcony, and offers you a warm atmosphere of casually elegant comfort. Our home, built in 1891, is on the National Register of Historic Places. Wrap-around twin porches invite you to enter the lovely house where you can relax in pampered contentment. For vacations, intimate weddings, honeymoons or romantic weekend getaways, we have the setting and style to make your visit relaxed, comfortable and memorable. It's morning and the aroma of fresh brewed coffee drifts under the door. The fragrance of fresh-baked goods beckons you from your nest of down pillows and blankets. Breakfast is delivered to your door and you are ready to greet the day.

Don't think twice

4.6 on February 24, 2015

The Inn at Craig Place was like visiting a new city and returning home to retire in your own bedroom at home. My wife and I have stayed at many B&B's and we both agreed the service, our room and the breakfast was outstanding. Do not even think twice. Highly recommend. Thank you Gregg.

Spent one evening on a busy valentine weekend. Gregg made us dinner reservations, the room was perfect, Kelly personally addressed a minor concern, and the atmosphere was relaxing. Will definitely stay there again with my sweetheart!!


Great Place to Stay

5 on February 12, 2015

This Inn was a perfect place for our trip to San Antonio. Kelly and Gregg went above and beyond our expectations. The Inn is listed as very romantic and they live up to those words, but you don't have to be on a romantic holiday. We stayed in the room Serenity and it was perfect. We had coffee delivered to our room each morning with a quick bite - one morning warm scones, the next warm blueberry muffins. We also received warm cookies before bedtime (a perfect snack after a day sight seeing). The Innkeepers were wonderful hosts. We ate our breakfast in the dining room (although they will deliver it to your room) and we really enjoyed talking to Kelly and Gregg. I would stay there again if I'm ever back in San Antonio.


Impressed Bridezilla

5 on February 08, 2015

We were planning to get married in a year after he proposed, but found out I was pregnant so we needed a wedding pretty fast for insurances purposes (having a baby is not cheap!) I gave them the deposit, answered their few questions, then planned to visit them but we never got around to it. The day of our wedding I was expecting it to be mediocre. I never met them. Everything before the wedding was chaotic. I was stressed, cranky, and ready to yell at anyone who was asking for it. I didn't expect much because I heard weddings are suppose to be over $30,00 and this place was charging less than $10,000. It has been a year. I unfortunately do not remember their names but I know they were a married couple. I forgot to make a deposit with the photographer, so the husband did the photography. The pictures turned out beautifully. I could not figure out how to get my dress on properly, so the wife helped me into the dress. I asked for pink/white lilies. I got pink and white lilies. The music was on point. No mistakes were made. Everything was beautiful. I loved the honeymoon suite with the large Jacuzzi tub. My favorite part of the entire experience was the scenery and food. My wedding looked as if it had cost thousands of dollars. My husband and I looked like a million bucks, felt like a million bucks, and were treated exceptionally well. The wedding cake was delicious. The breakfast was delicious. Our entire went to eat right across the street at this really nice place. We are going back for our honeymoon!


Anniversary Stay

4.8 on January 26, 2015

This is the 2nd time in as many years my wife and I have stayed at The Inn. We absolutely LOVE this place. So much, in fact, we call it Our Place :) This will probably become an annual celebration for us. HIGHLY recommend The Inn!


What a wonderful place

5 on December 31, 2014

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend in San Antonio and had a wonderful time. The house was beautiful and the service was excellent. While it feels like you're apart from the city in a wonderful old neighborhood, it is surprisingly close to everything downtown. No more hotels for us, we will look here first.


Amazing customer care!

The best place I've ever stayed at! I can't wait to stay again in the future!


Inn at Craig Place never disappoints!!

5 on December 25, 2014

We are repeat guests. We had our vows renewed there in 2012 and have been back to visit at least 4 times since. Always beautiful, clean, romantic,....one of a kind place! Kelly and Greg are wonderful hosts and we love the morning breakfast!!!


Inn at Craig Place - Better than Select Registry

5 on November 29, 2014

We finished a 19th Anniversary week-long Texas Hill Country Bed and Breakfast / Dining Experience tour / trek with a 2 out of 5 nights stay at Inn at CP. We have stayed at 2 other TX Select Registry Inn's before & though not a SR Inn, Inn at CP was easily better than any; SR or not! Not only because of the ratings given in the categories above, but additionally and we would say primarily, for the personalized service and attention we received from proprietors Gregg and Kelly. With a full-house and a wedding, (and a side-bar Utility Repair Gregg perfomed himself!) we were still attended to like we were the only one's there; from a special trip to supply a dietary preference, to local off-season (November) sites navigation and local dining recommendations, etc., etc., etc. And then the food (the Breakfast!!) at Inn at CP itself!!! - Top Shelf and First Rate! - Everything. Thanks again Gregg and Kelly!! Dale and Lorelie
