About

The Olivia Mansion is a magnificent Victorian jewel nestled in Seguin's downtown historic district.

Wonderful Small Town Charm

Wish my vacation time was longer so I could have spent another night is this wonderful hotel! Walking through the door it felt like I was in my grandparents family home, we even had cookies waiting for us on arrival! Large rooms, comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, and a quiet neighborhood. You really couldn't ask any more. Absolutely beautiful restoration of this historic Victorian home!


This place was really nice!

Went down to Seguin for a duck hunting trip and the wife needed running water, so instead of camping we stayed here. Crystal cooks a great breakfast...and way too much food! We stayed in the Victoria Suite, a modern room with a modern bath.

We booked the rooms last minute and the owner was so nice and fantastic! We had two little girls and the were welcomed and had a bed made up for them in the same room which was great! The breakfast was great!

A real experience

Arrived in Seguin not knowing what to expect and were blown away by Mosheim Manor. Unusual, amazing and all done with class.


Mosheim mansion B & B.

The bathroom is small. The shower curtain in the tub adheres to the inside of the tub and touches you when showering. (Kinda gross) There is no place to place clothes or toothbrush. The bedroom has no place to place luggage. No light near the bed only a ceiling fan light. Some areas of the house smell like dog. Overall the place is a nice place to stay. The food is great. Carol is a great hostess.


Walking Through History

5 on June 09, 2015

Visiting Mosheim Mansion was like a walk through history. The dark rich woods and impressive intricate details in the Victorian furniture found throughout the house, was stunning! The color and fabric choices were lush and complimented the furnishings. The breakfasts were served at the hour you chose by Carol, who told enchanting stories of happenings at the mansion. The menu offered dishes like a crispy French toast and a German pancake, both excellent and beautifully presented. We found our stay memorable Bob and Edra!


Beautiful Mansion

awesome room

Wow- the most beautiful furniture and interior. Awesome service and care by Carol. Getting some private time away to this nearby town was just perfect, and even better as we were offered an available even larger room than planned as it was avail that evening. A very late morning breakfast was just super and very delicious. This is the best.

Labor Day Weekend.

4.6 on September 10, 2014

Sequin is a sleepy town, so we visited other places. However, if you are looking for a place to relax that is close by SA, San Marcos and New Braunfels this is it. Carol and her staff were very accommodating and breakfast is not to be missed.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review. We read them and take them very seriously! I will try to do a better job of posting events in Seguin. It isn't always that sleepy. Thank you again for taking the time to review the Mansion. Please com and see us again sometime!

About the innkeepers

The Girling Family purchased The Mosheim Mansion in July of 2015. It was newly christened the Olivia Mansion, and immediately received a huge makeover. The previous owners utilized the place as a dog rescue; this is no longer the case. The restoration includes new flooring, restoration of existing hardwood floors, new paint colors though out the house, updated kitchen, additional antiques, new mattresses, new bedding, and many new room amenities. We think you will LOVE the changes!

Signature Dish

European style baked omelette with guyere cheese
Influenced by my Swiss heritage, this dish falls somewhere between a conventional omelet and a souffle. It may include vegetables of your choosing bacon and a dash of nutmeg. It is topped with guyere or raclette cheese and baked until golden. It is accompanied by rosemary potatoes, fresh fruit and delicious hearty breads.
