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!

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.

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...

IDYLLIC!

  • 5 of 5
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!

FABULOUS HOME. A GEM!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home for four nights as part of a San Antonio & Austin girls getaway.

The house just oozes of character and western charm! We're grateful that Margaret opened her home to us, she is wonderful to work with. The home is updated and well equipped, meticulously maintained (thanks to Alfredo), and the location couldn't have been more perfect. Very convenient to downtown (straight up S. Presa St.), we spent evenings enjoying the river walk and neighborhoods downtown. During the day, we rode bikes and walked the river trail touring all of the missions, went horseback riding one afternoon (Rancho Cortez, Bandera), and just wanted to spent a lot of time at the house too...it's just so comfortable, that we didn't want to leave!

I've rented dozens of homes all over the country...this is one of my favorites! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and hope to have the opportunity to return here. It's truly a gem!

LOVELY HOUSE FOR OUR FAMILY!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 6 just spent our spring break at this lovely house. It is very unique and was filled with treasures. Lots of fun art, antique books, and more. My kids enjoyed running through the grounds, seeing the chickens, guinnea and the dogs. My older two enjoyed sleeping in the fun loft while my little two shared the second bedroom. There was lots of space and everyone was comfortable. We enjoyed biking along the river as well. The house was well located for these things and was a short 15 minute drive to the downtown area for the Alamo, etc.

A few things to note, you have to walk through the master bedroom to reach the other bedroom and bathroom and there is NO door on one side of the master so there is no privacy if that is what you are after. While the animals were fun, this city girl is not used to getting woken up by the rooster, dogs or the trains. I wish I had brought ear plugs.

The house had everything we needed as far as dishes and pans, etc. It was also stocked nicely with toilet paper, tissues, etc. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it as a great place for a San Antonio break!
