Why margaret walker chose San Antonio

We fell in love with this historic treasure and renovated it to preserve its roots. When we bought the house it needed a lot of love - it had gone to disarray, but after a lot of sweat and restoration magic, it is now a treasure. The original house was built pre1900. The rest of the house was added in the 30s. It used to be a ranch (cows, sheep, goats) and a pecan orchard. There have been whispers of it being a stagecoach stop, brothel and popular spot during prohibition. The ruin across the street is what's left of Berg's Mill. San Juan, the mission next door was built mid 1700s. The ambiance of our property is seductively peaceful - we are so glad the house can continue to enchant visitors!

What makes this house unique

We have a fountain and a pond - our kids love looking for frogs, or feeding the fish. The birding on and around our property is spectacular. In the wintertime, we love having fires in the fireplaces, especially the fireplace in the master bedroom. Our property is surrounded by national park land so we are so secluded.

A quiet and enjoyable mini vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband and 2 adult children thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Walker House. The house itself was very interesting. We spent a bit of time trying to imagine what the house layout was back when it was built since I'm sure it didn't have 2 very nice bathrooms then. The kitchen is well equipped. AC worked like champ. It was quiet overall - we were not bothered by the early morning rooster noises. There were vegetables to eat from the garden which was a special treat. Being adjacent to the Mission Bike Trail was great - we walked 30-40 minutes every morning. The "mini-pool" was a welcome respite from hot June afternoons. I grew up in SA and we spent time going places I hadn't seen in many years such as the Witte Museum, Missions, the Spanish Governor's Palace and San Fernando. We didn't get to the Zoo or SAMA. I'd definitely recommend this as a place to stay. The only drawback is that occupants of the 2nd bedroom have to walk through the Master to get to the rest of the house. We didn't go down to the basement area since there was only 4 of us.

Unique Home

  • 5 of 5
girls weekend of 5 ladies enjoyed the home. We loved discovering all the unique home decorations and sitting areas. Felt like country living with convenience of the city with fresh eggs from chickens on property. Plenty of space for everyone. We were a bit disappointed with plunge pool, more like a tub but was refreshing. Homeowner was very helpful and prompt with responses. Definitely recommend this home.

BREATHTAKING!

  • 5 of 5
We always try to find a small nice property instead of big hotel chains when the entire family goes on trips and after staying in many hotels we are 100% sure that the Historic House on San Antonio River and Mission Trail was our best choice ever! The location was perfect as described and the grounds with the pool, all the green landscaping and chairs, we relaxed and had a wonderful time taking in all the beauty of this property. The kids could not get enough of all the fun things to do, from basketball to bike riding to the swings in the trees. Rooms were spotless and clean and large enough to feel comfortable like you were in your own home. The detail in every corner of the interior and exterior of the home was built with love and the decorations were perfect. There were some rules to renting the property, but we were more than happy to accept them as this helps to keep the place in such an ideal condition. We felt nothing but total hospitality from the owner and the groundskeeper Alfredo, was on point! Margaret, thank you again for opening up your home to our family. We would love to come and stay each year! The Armstrong and The Williams family...

We had a magical time at the Walker river house. The house itself was spectacular and the grounds were amazing. We felt at home the moment we drove onto the property. We were in want of nothing. we felt we were able to easily access the best of the city from this lovely and rural location. This house is our top choice for our next visit to San Antonio!
